    I wonder what the line is on Arizona/Memphis? Ought to be at least 10.

    BTW, I dislike the mandatory "going for 2" after every touchdown. Not that I like the extra point kick either. Both leagues get it wrong. The TD should be 7 points and then the head coach has the option to take one point off the board and go for two. Saves time and the scores will look more like traditional football scores instead of 18-12 or similar crap.
    I miss the old Mile High Stadium.

    Who cares if scores "look traditional"? I just want to watch fun football. Seeing a two pointer after every score is fun.

    It's fun now in part because it is unusual. Once it stops being unusual, it will become stale. Imagine a rule that said teams must do an on-side kickoff after every touchdown? In the beginning, it would be fun to watch. After a 54-51 Rams-KC game, it will get boring.

    Extra points are literally the most stale/boring part of a football game. No one tunes in to watch the kicker.

    The onside kick comparison is also utterly ridiculous. That would fundamentally change the game. Requiring two point conversions instead of extra points is overall a pretty minor change. Assuming two point conversions are made at a 50% rate, which they usually tend to be, the scoring will pretty much be the same as if all extra points were kicked.

    Makes sense. His accuracy has been very good. A large number of incompletions were barely tipped away by DBs.

    Apparently the AAF almost ran out of money to even pay their players after week 1 and had to get bailed out with a 250 million dollar investment from the Hurricanes owner. That's a pretty ominous sign.

    Not unusual for a startup though. It's getting pretty good viewership on TV, and the $$ will eventually come. I hope anyway, because I enjoy watching it!

    True, but I like that a coach has a choice of 1 or 2 points. Sure, 1 is more boring and still nearly automatic, but the choice itself lends more intrigue to the 2pt conversion in my mind.
