    Goodell: NFL could abolish the extra point

    Speaking Monday, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said the league could eventually abolish the extra point.
    "The extra point is almost automatic," Goodell said. "I believe we had five missed extra points this year out of 1,200 some odd. So it's a very small fraction of the play, and you want to add excitement with every play." Goodell said the league is intrigued by a proposal that would automatically grant seven points for every touchdown, but still allow teams to try for an eighth point via a traditional offensive play. The catch is that if you fail to convert, the touchdown then becomes worth only six points. Perhaps the most perfunctory play in sports, extra points serve almost no purpose at the professional level.
    Thoughts?

    In the end, who cares? But, this is another proposal that will take the foot out of football.

    As far as taking a point away if you don't make the play, ridiculous in the extreme!

    Dumb. These few missed extra points in the past have costed chances to get a playoff spot. Stop, Goodell, just stop.

    I don't think it's that bad of an idea if you ask me.

    Or maybe there should be a stipulation, if the "extra point" would tie the game, you have to kick it.

    Today I believe I would like to see the goal post changed to a narrow extra point goal post within the standard set. The extra point goal post would be narrowed to reach a 90% completion rate on extra points. Further, I would like to see the ball spot moved up to the 1 1/2 yard line instead of the 2. Change the goal posts.

    Next week I might think this is a lousy idea. I believe the goal post idea was floated here by another poster in the past. Today I believe it is a good idea.

    Don't like this at all. Would make it more exciting from a fan standpoint but wouldn't like this change

    I assumed it had something to do with player safety and eliminating a play the is almost pointless. Just like when Gronk got hurt on an extra point, i assumed that's why they wanted to get rid of it. But by the sounds of it Goodell just wants to make a boring play more exciting. I still don't see teams going for 2 all that often anyways.

    I bet there were more injuries on extra points this year than misses. I agree with this.

    It will be the same as it is now, only going for it when you have to.

    I wonder how many times a player has gotten injured on extra point? I do like the idea of a narrower goal post, seeing how anything inside 60 yards is manageable for almost all kickers.
