Alright with the math guys.


My point was that 7 heads in a row, while rare is not in the same context of missing a PAT.



Perhaps it's better if we consider the possibility of missing an on-contested dunk by a college player. 2 out of 300?




P.S. I once flipped heads 14 times in a row. Will never forget. Won $10.


You really need to look at your a probability calculations Laughing

1-(0,5^7)=0,991875 = 99,1875%

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. No changes to the PAT are necessary. The only one I would even consider would be to make the snap from the 5 or 10 yard line, rather than the 2.

This hasn't been posted in a while and considering the Pats/Ravens game is a 1 point different because of PATs, maybe it's a nice reason to start another of these.



Belichick suggested a couple years ago on moving the PAT to the 20 yard line resulting in a 37-39 yard field goal. 30-40 yard fields are statistically in the 93% success rate, although I imagine it's less for 37+ yarders but still in the 90% range of likely.


Another option has been suggested as having just two play ins, like the 2-point convert except for 1 point it's at the 1 yard line and the 2 point convert is at the 3.



A final option is of course having no 1 point option at all and only having the 2 point convert.




Love the move to the 20. The way it's set up now is just silly. As high of a % as there is with those it's almost like a TD should be worth 7 unless you want to try a 2pt conversion.


Move it back to the 20. Perfect idea.

What if the team does not have a mascot? Major problem there
