Im not sure what action and excitement you are talking about adding in or extending the excitement of a td. This is eliminating a play more often than not
But what real need is there to eliminate the actual play for period? it doesn't happen often, but there are instances where PAT's aren't converted routinely. It effectively eliminates an opportunity (albeit a small one) for the opposition to effect the game in the long run. It just Doesn't make sense to me b/c the play itself doesn't take that long to complete & you're not gonna be saving a ton of time/breaks by eliminating it anyway.

You're assuming the bolded....& you're probably right for the most part. But obviously with some of the other options they & others have suggested in this thread, there seems to be an interest in eliminating a fairly routine play like a PAT & there's no real valid explanation for it.
