CFL Getting Rid of the Extra Point

This Toronto Star article discusses the CFL discussions on getting rid of the extra point after a TD. I do like the idea of making the TD seven points by itself and then adding a point if a what is now a two point convert is executed or losing a point if it fails.

One side effect of this is that the leagues scoring leaders would be less likely to be kickers as there no longer would their be an extra point for kicks and TD scorers would have more points assigned to them.

If the CFL wanted to be really crazy they could make the TD worth eight points to increasing the importance of TDs versus field goals. Of course that would screw with a lot records.
