If your kicker does not add to that total, then you are missing out and other teams get an advantage over you if their kickers are adding points to their totals. The double negative is uncalled for, IMO.
you can make that argument against any negative point stat in the game. why penalize fumbles? isn't it enough that the running back didn't get a td? why penalize someone scoring against your defense? isn't it enough that they didn't get enough INTs or sacks? in roto baseball, why penalize walks or hits? isn't it enough that you didn't get a strikeout?
if you're looking to keep everything status quo, you're not going to like anything. and really that's what all the against arguments come down to. "it's not how things were. and i don't like it." which is something you can't argue against. but really isn't an argument itself, either.
You very aggressively twist my position and attack me for it? Please keep an open mind in discussions.
