Owners pass Overtime rule proposal

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; It also bugs me that this is a playoff change only. They are admitting in a sense that reg season games are less important than post season somehow. Many times a late season game is a playoff game. I understand ...

Re: Owners pass Overtime rule proposal

Well, it has been discussed for years but now something is going to be done about it.

The new rules proposal for overtime in the NFL was passed at the owner meetings in Orlando, Florida. By a vote of 28-4, there will now be new overtime rules in the NFL for just the playoffs but changes could come for the regular season at the next meeting in May. 24 votes were needed to pass the proposal through and I'm willing to bet that New Orleans Saints' coach Sean Payton was one of the 4 against.

Re: Owners pass Overtime rule proposal

It's a good change IMHO. Both teams get a shot at the ball unless the following happens:

Team A scores a touchdown after winning the toss

Team B wins on an onside kick after losing the toss, and kicks a field goal or touchdown

Team B wins after losing the toss and scores a defensive TD or gets a turnover and scores a field goal or touchdown

Team B wins if it gets a safety or pick 6 after losing the coin toss

If team A gets a touchdown they win the game

If team A scores a field goal they must kickoff to Team B. If Team B scores a touchdown they win. If they kick a field goal to tie, the game becomes sudden death again.

If Team A scores neither a TD or Field Goal and punts to Team B, it becomes sudden death at that point.


Everyone got that? Your welcome!

You would lose your bet. The four teams that voted against were Buffalo, Minnesota, Baltimore, & Cincy.

And the coaches had no vote whatsoever. The owners voted on this.

You won't be bugged for long. The owners will vote in May to amend this to both the REGULAR SEASON and THE PLAYOFFS. That vote will look just like this vote did.

Did you get this from somewhere or are you just assuming this is what it is?

How is it fair that one team can win with a FG because they lost a coin toss, but not coin toss winner, especially if the coin toss winner actually never gets a possession?

I got it from somewhere. Also, Im extremely intelligent and it made logical sense before I got it from somewhere and I thought of this format for almost 10 years now.

Payton on the vote: "It is what it is. It kind of happened without anyone knowing. It was supposed to be voted on tomorrow."

Just for those that thought Payton had any say in this whatsoever.

Don't hurt yourself patting your own back; still, the same issue persists: how is it fair that the team that lost the coin toss can win the game on the first possession of the game with a FG, but the team that won the coin toss cannot win the game on the first possession of the game with a FG?

Re: Owners pass Overtime rule proposal

Because Team A CAN win the game with a touchdown without relinquishing the ball to Team B. Is it that complicated?
