    My guess is the networks are looking for a more predictable time slot and both the networks and the league want to maximize revenue. So you eliminate as much of the "unnecessary" game action to sell as much ad time as possible within your time block. It sucks but I think the XP will be eliminated. And I am afraid we will see more "streamlining" of the game in the future.

    I don't think it sucks at all. I'm all for eliminating the PAT which is an anachronistic and meaningless play 99.9% of the time.
