There are twelve yards from the goal line to the goalpost because there are ten yards from the goal line and the goalpost is NOT on the back of the line it is two yards back from the line.

No. You're confusing the "goalposts" with the gooseneck structure that supports them.

The term "goalposts" is an all-encompassing term for the uprights and the crossbar connecting them, plus any supporting structure. The goal itself is always exactly ten yards behind the goal line. The rest of the structure could vary depending upon how the goalposts are made. A gooseneck support might reside about two yards further back, give or take a few feet. But many fields still use the old "H"-shaped goal, which is entirely vertical and therefore the whole structure sits ten yards back from the goal.
