There was a colossal outcry about how unfairly the Viqueens had been treated, even to the extent of a major rule change for overtime in the playoffs. They SHOULD have had a chance to respond, if the NFL were not so unfair.

My question. What happened to Pittsburgh's opportunity to respond in yesterday's overtime? Guess they're not media darlings either....

They don't care about Pittsburgh because Brett Favre doesnt play for them.

The NFL felt sorry for Brett Favre because we made him play the toughest game he's ever played, getting hit every play. So they tried to give him a way to win it easier if he got there again

I've never liked the OT format and I'm not a fan of NCAA format either. I say play a 7:00 quarter with rules just like regulation. If a team can burn up all 7 minutes and kick a FG to win it, they deserve it if not it's played just like regulation with both teams having an opportunity to win it.

Outcry?

More like whiners being themselves.

Just like the Lions coach who whined about "the refs" and bad calls.

Yea, the Saints have NEVER had a bad call against them. Never heard us whining about it. It is, what it is.

Only whiners whine. Until society starts telling them to stfu they'll continue to be crybabies. Grow a pair, would be my suggestion.

Sudden death isn't from Mars. It actually makes a lot of sense.

I like that. I say just keep playing until one team wins.
