    I've actually been thinking about suggesting not having kickers in our league next year. Kind of dumb to have them in the first place.

    Yep, the keeper league I'm in is getting rid of them next year as well.

    My only hesitance is the fact that I don't draft one and stock up on position players (just pick up a FA before week 1) which gives me an advantage, so I don't mind all that much.

    Re: Roger Goodell wants to end the PAT

    Get rid of the PAT and make it exclusively a 2 point conversion after touchdowns.

    The real life counter to that argument is NASCAR. NASCAR was printing money and on pace to approach the #1 spot in viewership (albeit...on pace if the growth continued, that was always in question...but it's undeniable that they had stellar growth) in the late 90's and early 2000's. Now, they're consistently losing viewership, and it's 2 fold:

    First, they effed with the championship points...repeatedly. Started with 'the chase' after Kenseth had it wrapped up before the last race...the new fans and the consultants (probably) said it wasn't dramatic enough...it's not like the playoffs where it reaches a crescendo, they said...then the superstar (Dale Jr.) didn't make the chase from 11th or 12, I think, then poof...chase is expanded. Then people who won a lot of races and tanked in the rest missed the chase or got a crappy seed. But wait, it's supposed to be about winning...queue another change.

    2nd, they broadstroke effed with the cars...repeatedly. Make a level playing field for all the teams was the mantra there, clamped down on the body shape (although admittedly they were getting comical with the roof lines and fender bumpouts), and you can only have so many cars per team...so now, there's so little wiggle room, the huge teams are the only ones who can spend the money to get a little extra, and the drop in viewership has bankrupted the small teams...the only ones remaining are the 'associates' that are basically the extra teams spun off from or completely beholden to the huge owners.

    uhh...sorry...\rant....I used to be a fan, haven't watched a race with any sense of giving a **** in a couple years.

    But yes, you can fix what isn't broken, sometimes, but you can also break the **** out of it.

    You're talking almost 8 years now though. A 50% increase in 8 years doesn't exactly blow me away. And who's to say it couldn't have been even better? A lot of that increase can be attributed to the continued and increasing popularity of fantasy leagues. Meanwhile, actual attendance at games is dropping.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Not super worried, they also said they were going to get rid of the kickoff. Its still in play.


    I'm not trying to be difficult, it comes naturally....

    Stupid idea, let's just do away with kicking all together and change the name of the game, because it obviously wouldn't be football anymore.

    It's only barely football now.

    Does this mean in the future we will be missing the "Extra Point Highlights" from Sports Center on ESPN.

    I bet Roger Goodell is secretly a soccer fan.

    Surely, you can't be serious.

    However, this would eliminate the infamous TD-commercial-extra point-commercial-kickoff-commercial "NFL Happy Time Ad Fun Block!" You are, though, going to see more commercial breaks between kickoffs and plays from scrimmage. Book it.
