League could change postseason overtime format BECAUSE OF HOW SAINTS BEAT VIKINGS!

Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS -- An NFL spokesman says the league could change its overtime format for playoff games at a meeting next month.

Greg Aiello said Saturday that under the new format, both teams would get the ball at least once unless the first team with the ball scores a touchdown. If the first team with the ball makes a field goal and the other team ties the game, action would continue until a team scores again.

Under the current rules, the first team to score wins.

The debate about the rule gained steam after the NFC Championship Game, when New Orleans beat Minnesota 31-28 in overtime and Brett Favre's Vikings never got the ball in the extra period. Under the proposed rule, Minnesota would have had another possession because it didn't allow a touchdown.

The commissioner, Roger Goodell has already said there will not be any changes to the overtime rule. This unnamed league spokesman is only stirring the pot. The rule should be consistent , regular season and playoffs and its fine the way it is. And there isn't a signifigant difference to winning the toss and winning the game, its like 52% of those that win the toss and get the ball first win the game. Let the crybabies cry.

I would have referred to them as gossipy douchebags.

There are far too many whiners in America these days is what this boils down to.

I also heard that the league was looking into a rule that would negate any INT that was thrown in the 4th Q in the playoffs. Just to make things fair.

But from what I hear the QB would need to have a last name of Farrve, Faver, Favar or something similar. Can't quite remember.

Wow...what are we teaching our kids!!!??? If you don't like the rules, whine about them, and try to get them changed! Even if they have been in force for years! Agreed.....if it had been the Vikes that won in overtime this way, there would be no question. Disgusting!

I am so ***king sick of hearing about this. ***king crybabies, get over it! WE WON THE SUPER BOWL! And because Princess Favre got his ass handed to him by our "degenerate" team, they want to change the rules to ensure this NEVER happens again!! ***K YOU NFL!

Re: League could change postseason overtime format BECAUSE OF HOW SAINTS BEAT VIKINGS!

nobody mentions that favre had the chance to win the game at the end of regulation and ****ed up yet again

the game was going to end with the saints on top no matter who got the ball in overtime. brett favre didnt earn the victory. the vikings didnt win the game in regulation because of their turnovers.

they stunk all game and couldnt hold the ball....we mightve scored even earlier had the vikings gotten the ball in OT because they played a full 4 qtrs and the vikings still couldnt figure out how to hold the ball
