How stupid would Jim have looked if we walk out our hands team for the onside punt and say Vernon or Crabtree got nailed and were done for the season. The odds of getting a player hurt onside kick are way higher than screwing up a couple of kneel downs. Has it even happened before? Insane.
The spread thing was just a side thought, way to blow it way out of proportion...plus I made it beyond explicitly clear that obviously you should never alter/risk anything to make sure covering, but that if it's just right there handed for you to take, then take it. Especially because it would have made it go from a 1 possession game to a 2 possession game...it's not like the score change would have been insignificant that doesn't change what the opposition would then need i.e. a 4 point game to a 6 point game, or an 18 point game to a 20 point game or something. And again, if you think about it, wouldn't teams want people to bet on them? The more people in the stadium that are rooting for you and will cheer and make noise when the other team is on offense, the better.
