Since they do away with both extra points and kickoffs, the place kicker will have quite a bit less to do, but I guess they'll still need him for field goals. They didn't say, but I assume punts will still be there.

In a way I think it's a shame to lose the kickoff, as they always have a potential for excitement. But if it speeds things up and reduces injuries, I suppose it's a good thing.

I'm wondering if San Diego will be trying to get one of the franchises, since the Chargers abandoned us. There's been talk about getting a major-league soccer team, but I don't know if it's going anywhere.
