In an average game the offense and defense play about 60 snaps.
If you eliminate special teams extra points you eliminate about 100 snaps per team per year.

The players union can't whine about an increased # of snaps = increased risk of injury = bigger slice of the pie/ payraise.
The union represents Curtis brown just the same as Ben roe this
