Let's Make NFL Extra Points Interesting:

Instead of having allowing the place kicker to kick all extra points in the NFL, imagine if the player who scored the touchdown had to kick the extra point. If the player who scored is injured or completely incapable of making an extra point, then you have to go for two.

I'm not suggesting we get rid of kickers or the goal posts, because field goals would still be kicked by kickers. Kicking an extra point is not that hard. Any professional athlete should be capable of doing it.

Also, the NBA does not have designated free throw shooters. The player who is fouled must shoot the free throw. In some cases (technical foul, flagrent foul, etc.), the team gets to pick a player to shoot. It happens rare enough that it isn't worth it to have a free throw specialist on the roster.

Let's Make NFL Extra Points Interesting

Hey, sorry about the self link. I didn't realize that was so frowned upon in this community, Hoser does it every week with his NFL picks. I'm not trying to drive traffic to my blog or anything, I'm just a sports fan who legitimately thinks it's a fun idea. Judging by some of the sarcastic comments here, not everybody agrees.

Keith Hernandez rips ex-mate Gary Carter on air

Sounds like Gary Carter has done the opposite of what he intended. If he was interested in the Mets job, I can't see how he would get it now.
