NEW YORK CITY – The New York City Sun-Observer has just informed the sports world that the National Football League is considering adding a new 4-point field goal to the game.
NFL Spokesperson, Guthrie Appleyard, 51, said that the league needs to do something to stop the vast amount of games that are going into overtime.
He noted that the 4-point field goal has been used up in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, and down in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico, and it has proven to be very successful in both cities.
Appleyard stated that the new proposed rule will allow for a field goal to count for four points as opposed to three if it is kicked from a distance of 70 yards or farther.
He pointed out that 70+yard field goal kicks will also get a bunch of ahhhhs from the spectators.
The NFL spokesperson who stands 6 foot 9, and weighs 295, was a backup defensive tackle at Paul Revere Jr. College in Kankakee, Illinois. He noted that a majority of the NFL kickers love the new rule; the hot dog vendors not so much.
(IN CLOSING – It is being reported that 23 players on the Super Bowl losing team, the San Francisco 49ers, say that if the NFL implements this 4-point rule, they will leave the NFL and go play football down in Peru.)
