I have seen it time and time again. Teams who are in the position to kick a drop goal pass it by and go for a try.... and then 3 or 4 minutes later lose the ball. It seems that after a few attempts a team would be wise to just kick a drop goal and thus keep adding up those 3 point scores during the game. Besides after exhaustive attempts and the ball is then lost.....the team is winded and can't play effective defense. Just an observation from a newby. I'm sure there is some strong rationale behind what I'm seeing.
