New Rules for Extra Point

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; Can someone please explain this to me. Explain the extra point as if you were talking to someone who doesn't know the game. I tried reading it in NFL.com but couldn't make sense of it....

No more perennial old-timer veteran guys like Jason Hanson or Morton....they will become a thing of the past?
I disagree. If anything, you'd want a more experienced guy now. Might see more hybrids like Morstead so you don't use up a roster spot.

Wrong direction. Getting more of the most boring part of the game by creating odd circumstances not based off of contact. Rather just call a fan out during the kick and let them roll dice.

It'll create more concussions going for two or faking a FG from the 15. More lawsuits to follow.

I'm obviously in a minority here but I actually like the change. The XP has been a time to get more snacks up until now. This might make it a little mor interesting.

Personally, I'll take 'more snacks' over 'more interesting' most days, .

Re: New Rules for Extra Point

So not one missed extra point has ever decided the outcome of a game? (I can think of one played in Jacksonville.) If it's never missed why have it?

There will be fewer tie games going into "Hartley Time" Ironic isn't it? Inspired by a kicker!

Why all the tears for the "grizzled vet". Morton? Is that you?

Re: New Rules for Extra Point

The game evolves. We come to forums and *****, and yet, still watch. We can complain about this all day, but, in the end, we will accept it.
