Default Re: Ravens' Fake Extra Point

its also worthy to note that in many instances, this call is placed on the holder/placekicker.

they are instructed that if they see something, that is a sure fire, 100% bet to go ahead and make the call at the line.

many times the rest of the players or even coaching staff (other than ST) have no hand in the call or even an idea it is coming.

its called "situational football".

if i were a coach, i woulda chewed my kicker out for not taking the sure points, regardless of how far ahead we were.

the thin skinned need to resort to playing scrabble where they can defer to a dictionary if points are disputed.
