That was just a suggestion from Ryan. What we're discussing is -1 for a missed fieldgoal of any distance, or no loss for a missed fieldgoal.
I'm going to change it to -1 since there are currently 3 votes going that way and it's not like we have 10 people debating it.
I guess I should have specified that a little better. That is the way we score FGs in another of my leagues, but turnovers are also worth more, so it balances out. The reason we set it like that is kickers shouldn't be missing the little chip shots or anything up to 30 really, so we made them worth more. Missing something 30-40 is a little more understandable. And when a kicker misses a 50+ yarder you really shouldn't be punished the same as if they were to miss a 19 yarder. I like the idea of staggering the amount that you are penalized but I realize -4 is too high for this league with the rest of the scoring. What about:
Field Goals Missed 0-19 Yards (-2)
Field Goals Missed 20-29 Yards (-1)
Field Goals Missed 30-39 Yards (-1)
Field Goals Missed 40-49 Yards (0)
Field Goals Missed 50+ Yards (0)
That way it is staggered, but fair at the same time.
