The difference of NFL’s extra point rule now adding suspense, thrill and frenzy
Excitement and SuspenseThe rule has definitely boosted excitement in some circles. For some NFL fans who are cock sure about their team’s performance, they have shown more trust than despair as they believe that their teams can survive and win admirably in all situations, they’ve agreed to the fact that the NFL game had slowly lost its perennial charm and suspense in recent years. The increased distance would definitely beef up player performance and will even effect the post-touchdown bathroom breaks by fans adding more engagement by fans and audience.
Accepting the changeHowever, in 2014, kickers were hitting 98 % of their field goals from such a distance, in the given conditions they’re probably going to do even better with this all-new extra point incentive as they would be able to line-up their shots whichever way they want to. Early in the second week, we've seen it already that the players have adapted to this new rule. Reference to the rule change, if the defense reappears on a failed two-point try or a blocked extra touchdown at an interception, it will now be awarded 2 points. Whereas according to the previous rule the ball was considered dead on a failed try.
