    The only change I would make to the nfl is shortening the play clock by 10 seconds each time. Too much wasted time in NFL games. Athletes should be athletic enough to make that work.linemen can hurry their fat butts back to the huddle or the LOS.
    Plus, more plays equals more offense... And more viewers. Nfl should be all over that.

    It's not changing anything. If you score a td you just tell the ref 1 and you automatically have 7 pts.

    If you score a td and tell the ref 2, you line up and go for 2. If you get it you have 8 and if you don't you have 6. Not that hard to understand.

    Completely not happening. 10 seconds? LOL. You know they extended the play clock last time right? They want less plays... Not more. Less equals less injurys.

    Wait... You said. "By" 10 seconds... I read "to" 10 seconds and my eyes bulged madly with laughter.

    But still. They arnt ever doing that.

    So... no more fake FG for 2? (not like it happens much, but still... it's a viable thing to do).

    Yeah guys, it doesn't change anything. Maximum amount of points you can get from one possession is still 8. I don't like this idea because the PAT is a tradition. You score a TD, and you get the luxury of going out there for a free point. Fake PAT plays can also be run. It's not that big of a deal to keep the game the way it is.

    Why not just increase the distance for PATs instead? back 'em up 20 yards or something, make it less of a gimme, and give kickers more of a chance to make more of an impact instead of chip shots.

    Dunno if I like the idea, but if they do it, why not just make a touchdown 7 points anyhow, and make conversions for one point instead?

    They should do away with XP's but make teams go for "1" instead.

    Move going for 2 back.

    Then there would be no incentive to not go for 2. Why just take the td if you can get a try at an extra 1 with no consequences?
