Anyone else think all this talk about changing the PAT rules is silly? The play is fundamental to the game, and as all Packer fans saw this year not necessarily automatic. I think the owners haven't thought things through, because when you start talking about "making it a meaningful play", as a player or coach I am thinking then I need to put practice time in on it and at a minimum I am demanding that my long snapper is exempt from the roster and probably another special teams player.

You think guys get hurt on ST plays now, wait until you make the two point conversion live both ways and have quarterbacks running 95 yards trying to make a tackle.
Some hero's wear capes, others just hold the door!

Televised sports seem to think they must replicate sports on a gaming platform which has caused me to return to listening on radio ... I have no need for a final score of 159-158 .

I think it's a stretch to call it "fundamental to the game" - in what way?

I haven't followed all the rule change discussions that closely, but why not just remove the extra point and make a TD 7 points? The team then has an option to go for a conversion from the 2 yard line. If they get it, they go to 8. If they fail, they drop to 6. This will eliminate extra points while still not making 2 point conversions more common.

I don't see a SINGLE thing this PAT 'possible change' would add.
Who watches the game for the PAT? and what will it add to the game?? NOTHING!!!!!!
Other than more rules for the ref's to remember. They seem to have
enough problem with the rules now???????
An odd solution in search of a problem..................................

Maybe basketball should add a halfcourt shot too for about 5 points
Leave the games alone!!!!!!!!

The best idea yet that I have seen is also perhaps the most counter-intuitive one: Move the ball to the 1 (instead of the two), and change nothing else.

Why? Math.

The average completion rate for the current 2 point play is normally in the mid 40% range. As in, mathematically, over time, you will score fewer points by going for 2 after every score.

Conversely, teams tend to convert 4th and 1 at a near 66% clip. Mathematically, teams would average 1 extra point every 3 TDs if they went for 2 every time with the ball at the 1.

This drastic increase in the probability of success would lead to many coaches going for it more often during the extra point, making it a bigger component of the game.
The Brewers will finish 90-72 and earn the #1 WC berth.

Carlos Gomez will have a 30/40 season (HR/SB) and win a 2nd Gold Glove en route to an All Star selection.
