Wasn’t getting foul something that punishes the player that committed the offence? So why not offer the extra point automatically, and not send the “victim” to the free throw line? This is torture for some players, especially if they miss the free-throw shots. And when they miss the shots, who has the last laugh? Exactly! So, who is being punished?
It should not pay to foul someone. Automatically offering the extra point would send this message. Find other uses for the free-throw line.
I have a few suggestions. But who is listening?
