Default Re: NFL Competition Committee Reportedly Discussing 42-Yard Extra Point

I'm not happy about having more games decided by one of the only positions on the field that players are deemed so insignificant that they hardly ever even get drafted.

Make them line up and go for 2 every time.
finally...someone agrees with me ..
