Bill Belichick went on local radio yesterday and inevitably the question came up about how he feels about the NFL changing the kickoff rules this season.

In his response, Belichick introduced a whole new question of whether the league should do away with or alter the extra point play. 

Summarizing Belichick's words:

    Plays that are non plays shouldn't be part of the game. It's not good for the game. You know like extra points, when you're up to 99% on extra points it's not a play. Let's move the ball back to the 15 or the 20 yard line and not make it a tap in, and least make them putt it.

The full interview is nearly 30 minutes long and can be heard here. The discussion regarding extra points occurs around the 6 minute mark.
