->> I would prefer that the PAT be left as it is, but if the competition committee concludes that it is no longer a competitive play then I would much rather that the NFL make the PAT more difficult, as Michael suggested, than to eliminate it.

This is nothing more than a ploy to squeeze a few more commercials into an NFL broadcast, and I do not see increasing advertising revenue as a good reason to play around with the rules of the game.

->> He complains that the play is automatic, unless you try for two in which case you either score and get 8 points or fail and get 6. The idea he likes to replace it is to make it automatic, unless you try for two in which case you either score and get 8 points or fail and get 6. Makes sense to me.

Neither do I, but we're not the ones who receive that advertising revenue. Obviously, those people have a different opinion. ;-)
