More Rule Changes As A Result Of The Saints

The new overtime rule (AKA, "The Brett Favre Rule") is not the only rule that the NFL changed as a result of a Saints' win. The NFL also voted to institute a rule that states, "If the clock is stopped in the final minute of either half for a replay review, but would not have stopped without the review, officials will run off 10 seconds before resuming play. Either team could take a timeout to void the 10-second runoff."

This rule is a direct result of the Drew Brees touchdown scored 2 seconds before the half, which occurred after a review, that turned the tide in the Miami Dolphins game. Had the rule been in effect at that time, the clock would have ran down and there would have been no touchdown.

I heard that they are also considering a change to the rule that led to the overturn of the Lance Moore two point conversion catch in the Super Bowl. It's as if the NFL has said, "if the Saints can win the Super Bowl, something must be wrong."

Re: More Rule Changes As A Result Of The Saints

What message is the league trying to send out?
That the Saints won because the game was too easy? ?? C'mon man..
I hope this backfire on them and Saints go right back in with all of these rule changes..

It's really as if they thought the game was not meant for Saints to go any further than the playoffs..
They making it seem as if they did something wrong and thats why Saints won so easy.. Rich Mccay hates the Saints and he's the main overseer of these rule changes.. Grrr!!!

Don't they change rules every year though.i think you guys might be taking this a little to far.Didn't the Vikings vote against the overtime rule change and the Saints voted for it.

Re: More Rule Changes As A Result Of The Saints

If they truly institute all these rules that is pathetic. I have never heard of such non-sense, but I'll tell you this- I am loving the fact that we won the SB. It still hasn't got old yet!!

Re: More Rule Changes As A Result Of The Saints

Well ... don't worry guys and gals, we have the league's most potent offense. And it will continue to be in the foreseeable future. Couple DAT with a better defense, those new rules won't matter for TWO DAT!
