I think it would make the game more exciting as well as interesting . If you enjoy watching field goals that's fine.
Where does it stop . 70yds.? It's like tigerizing the Masters or lowering the pitchers mound in the major's. (they lowered the mound years ago because the scoring was so low .) Narrowing the goals would make it a lot tougher on the coaches to simply trot a kicker onto the field if they might give up great field position .
As far as Adam V. is concerned , I think the guy is great , phenomenal but no kicker wants a rule that would make their job tougher .
Hi, Nils here....
I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!
I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.
I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!
I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.
It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
