It seems odd to me that a defender can make contact with head, contact considered so egregious that he is sent from the field for the rest of the match, yet the ball carrier need not leave the field for an extensive HIA. Is it dangerous or not?
Converting point scoring opportunities is the important bit, yes. Im not sure I agree that missed unopposed kicks at goal is the same as our attempts to score tries being successfully defended, but ok.

commentary team homerism is just boring. i don't need stirring up.
The Americans have it sorted. Network TV NFL broadcasts are called by by genuinely impartial guys (even recent players present this way - the best analyst around in any sport (IMO) at the moment is Tony Romo because he can...
5 bucks seems light to me. That's only 60 bucks a year assuming people subscribe for the full year. Need an awful lot of subs to cover your nut and it doesnt leave much cash in the bank to chase other sports.
