Do You Like Roger Goodell’s Idea of Eliminating the Extra Point in the NFL?[FAN Poll of the Day]

Earlier this week, reports came out that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has explored the idea of eliminating the extra point from the game.  “The extra point is almost automatic,” Goodell said. “I believe we had five missed extra points this year out of 1,200 some odd (1,256-for-1,261, to be precise). So it’s a very small fraction of the play, and you want to add excitement with every play. There’s one proposal in particular that I’ve heard about. It’s automatic that you get seven points when you score a touchdown, but you could potentially go for an eighth point, either by running or passing the ball, so if you fail, you go back to six.”  This idea is one of many that have been thrown around as possible ways to replace the extra points.  These types of conversations have also opened up the idea of eliminating the kicker all together.  That brings us to our FAN poll of the day.
