**** the NFL, they can't go an offseason without screwing with something now. Its getting to the point where I won't know all the rules but I do know that its getting harder to watch games when the Saints aren't on

Re: New Rules for Extra Point

Good grief, I don't want to see a missed extra point decide a game.

If a team dramatically drives 90 yards for an apparent tying TD, I don't want to see a missed extra point by a stupid Kicker decide the fate of the game.

Either leave it alone, or eliminate it altogether and make an optional PAT either plus 1 point or minus 1 point, depending on the success or failure.

Rajun, I am laughing so hard and I agree with you. I did not know if I feel , , about this.

We Saints' fans, of all fans, know that extra point here and there CAN MAKE a BIG difference too between a W and a L.

You'll see more and more kickers receive death threats.

Re: New Rules for Extra Point

This has a lot of implications. For one thing, older kickers will probably get cut sooner in their careers. Gee, kinda like Shayne Graham, LOL. But seriously.... Because of the increased distance and increased importance, coaches will give up on older kickers sooner, rather than later. No more perennial old-timer veteran guys like Jason Hanson or Morton....they will become a thing of the past?

They'll likely to get paid more, less job security, and you'll start seeing more kickers get drafted. We'll probably see more jacked up kickers as well... more emphasis in the weight room.

Why? Distance isn't the issue. Accuracy is the issue.

Youth (leg strength) doesn't have an advantage on a 32 yard kick.

Quick note ...one year rule ONLY ... next year the owners would have to vote at least 24 to re adopt it.

Let's see how this materializes in 2015 .

And precisely what you don't want to see is exactly what you're going to see...a lot probably.

I couldn't agree with you more.
