Maybe it'll stop when teams start getting burned by it - if the kicker misses the 1st attempt and then nails the 2nd one - then it'll be more like, 'thanks for the mulligan'.
That's exactly what Mike Greenberg said this morning on Mike & Mike. What if the kicker "misses" the 1st attempted field-goal after that "slick" time-out?
Good call there, cnw60.
And that's why I think the rule should be changed ASAP...
