Well...it's official. The NFL finally decided on an OT rule that they can live with. In the future, if a game ends in a tie, a call will be made to the commissioner and he will decide who wins.

Re: Overtime Rule change

I think it's stupid to change the OT rules. All those people whining about the change are the same peope that got butt hurt because Grandpa Favre didn't make it to the Super Bowl.

Seriously, leave it alone. The team that loses the coin toss, you had 60 minutes to win the game. If you couldn't execute your gameplan when you had the opportunity, you deserve to lose the game.

Bad change. And it's not about fainess. It's about squeezing in another 10-15 commercials. Maybe if a couple of other rules were changed then the offense wouldn't have such a decided advantage as they do now. For example, taking the skirt off the QB.

Re: Overtime Rule change

I always believed that OT should be a 7:30 qtr. During regular season if it is still tied after you play the additional 7:30 than the game ends in a tie. Playoffs of course you continue until there is a winner but keep it with the 7:30 qtrs. Never did like sudden death but I also don't like what they are proposing.

Re: Overtime Rule change

The commentators, writers, and analysts keeps forgetting that the Vikings (like all other teams that play in overtime) had a chance to win the game before overtime, and they, literally, threw it away.

Re: Overtime Rule change

just heard.......and you guys will like this

to pass, it is required that there are 24 votes of approval from around the league

which means all it takes is 9 votes to veto the proposal

one team specifically has already announced they are opposed to this rule change....can anyone guess who?
