money in that scenario.
Maybe 40+ yards for an extra point is a little excessive, but they should still consider increasing the level of difficulty if they are going to keep kickers around. Their jobs have already been made much easier by moving kickoffs 5 yards closer. Either make them earn their money or do away with them altogether.
so if you go moving the ball back to add some difficulty to extra points , hows that going to affect 2 point attempts ? will they be eliminated ? or continue to spot the ball at the 3 for just two pointers ?
