Those evil Saints just bullied everybody that got in their way....how dare they win games against the NFL's most beloved players in history. Knocking those old guys down on their butts when all they wanted was to throw the football. It's just shameful. Shameful. I don't know how those Saints could actually hold their heads high after cheating to win...yes I said it. They didn't even give the "Best Team in Football" a chance to get the ball in overtime.....Cheaters.

+ WTF is up with said proposed rule. make it like college, play straight up, Td's only, start at the 25 yd line get in the end zone the first team to score and stop the other wins plain and simple.

If they call it the whiner b.i.t.c.h rule, I'd be all for it.

Re: If the NFL changes the overtime rules, we can thank (or blame) the Saints and Vikings

I won't go into just how pissed off this makes me...however, here are some random thoughts FROM THE SAPPER!

1. Dear Vikes Front Office, Fans and sports writers who think they got robbed. (Clearing my throat) FARVE THREW THE INT! GET OVER IT! YOUR TEAM LOST! 44 SuperBowls, NFC CHampionships and AFC Championships had the chance of being decided by the "Dreaded OT FG". It is all of a sudden an issue because the NFL gods did not get the match up they wanted (Manning vs Favre) with Favre winning and proving Green Bays FO wrong.

My only response to all that think the Saints stole their way into the SuperBowl...... GET F@#$ED, STICK YOUR HEAD IN YOUR ARSE AND TAKE A DEEP BREATH!

With loving reguards,

It's called the "if I throw an interception then I don't want to loose in overtime because we tried to buy a Super Bow appearance Brett Favre rule". or something like that. I believed for a long time the overtime rules should be changed for both regular & post season. However to change it because some people feel the Vickings should have gone to the Super Bowl just stinks!

this is the main reason most people are opposed to it

its not that they are trying to change the rule......its why

**** brett favre.....there isnt a single other reason that this is being pushed so far

according to an article i read before our championship game, i read that NBC wanted the vikings to win because the ratings for the super bowl would be that much better

well guess what NBC......the super bowl this year was the most watched program EVER......now go **** yourselves because you were wrong

saints nation is here

Setting aside the discussion of why this change is being proposed...

I never liked the OT rule anyway. The current setup makes the coin toss too important. I think the proposed change is an improvement, and more natural than the NCAA OT system. In fact, why not make OT for regular season games the same as playoff OT? (Personally, I'd rather drop OT completely in the regular season, but that's another discussion.)

Re: If the NFL changes the overtime rules, we can thank (or blame) the Saints and Vikings

In all seriousness, I think the overtime rule is fine the way it is. I find it exciting and actually quite funny the way fans go wild after they win the coin toss. I would not like to disrespect the Defense by saying 'you have no hope' because that is what is being implied. And for those that think the coin toss virtually decides the game; that's ridiculous. Plays have to be made and plans formulated. But what gets my goat and what CantonLegend has stated, is the reason behind it all. For example, why wasn't it brought up when the Saints beat the Redskins? Please don't tell me it was regular season because surely the big bods knew that there was a possibility it could happen in the playoffs (Playoffs, PLAYOFFS!!) As it did happen in the playoffs why were there no calls for it to be changed then? Is it because the team that won were not the team that won the toss (which blows certain theories out of the water) Why was there a huge outcry when WE won in overtime? Because, as the majority of the WhoDat Nation know, we ruined the glamorous matchup of the Cerebral Quarterback Vs the 'Old Gunslinger' in his final (?) year. Well guess what? We have a cerebral gunslinger, which is more cerebrally gunslingerish than those other two put together and it was proved when the Black and Gold came marching in so...HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHHAHAHAHAHHEHEHEHEHE HEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHHOHOHOAHAHAHAHH.....OH STOP, my sides...they're hurting...HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAH.

Re: If the NFL changes the overtime rules, we can thank (or blame) the Saints and Vikings

Absolute shenanigans. Why was there no outcry when Favre lost the NFC Championship in the 07 season? I know I wanted to see Brady vs Favre, Young vs Old, New King of the NFL vs Old King of the NFL, etc. I wanted to see Favre make it back to The Big Game one more time and have the game of his life, just barely losing to Brady and finishing the perfect season. (Yes I wanted to see the Patriots do it because I thought no one would ever get that close again. I'm now glad that they didn't because now WE can do it.) Of course, I got my wish this year with Brees vs Favre, almost all criteria fulfilled.

I want to see some serious hate mail directed towards the Giants. How dare they subject the old man to such frigid temperatures! He could have caught his death out there!

Ranting aside, the new proposal sounds logical, and I could live with it.

Saints fan since he watched them play from his crib.
