NFL seems set with current overtime format

NFL owners voted down a proposal to change overtime this week, and from all indications the league does not want to tinker with the overtime format.

This week’s proposal, which would have guaranteed each team a possession, was the latest idea to change overtime that got to the discussion phase but didn’t have enough support to come to fruition. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said before the league meeting that he sees no reason to change overtime, and most owners seem to agree with him.

Still, the overtime format will continue to be debated. Some want every team to be guaranteed a possession, so that the team receiving the opening kickoff can’t march down the field and win without the team that kicks off ever getting the ball. Others want to adopt the college football format of alternating possessions. Still others want more radical changes, like doing away with field goals in overtime so that only a touchdown (or safety) can win the game. Or replacing the coin toss with an “auction” format so the two teams can “bid” on which yard line overtime will start from.

I wish they would eliminate FG's and the kicker position entirely.

Re: NFL seems set with current overtime format

I say make the official overtime rules to make the Saints win and the rest of the division lose every time.

"Two teams enter, one team leaves" ... it'll give 'em more of an incentive to win during regulation also, .

I agree that there are way too many new rules "pussifyin" the NFL, but I don't see how giving each team a possession in OT is considered "pussification".
