Re: New OT Rule
 
i know some of you have noticed my signature.....but i'll post it again for everyone....it was said by colin cowherd when people were complaining about the overtime rules earlier in the season

when asked about it his response was simple and to the point

"deal with it or you can go play the saints and get trounced by 30 and you won't have to worry about it."

overtime is meant to end the game and decide which team deserves the right to win the game once and for all......most people complain because they think the team that wins the coin toss automatically wins the game....of course you get the advantage by winning the coin toss, but you also have to execute

in fact, this season it was nearly 50-50. teams that won the coin toss in overtime only scored on their first drives about 50% of the time......the other 50% both teams touched the ball

thats not the exact stat but i remember reading it after the NFC championship game when people were *****ing, yet again, about overtime

Regular season just let them end in a tie.


I am for play full quarters till a winner is crowned in the regular season as well as the playoff. I do not care if it turns into eight man football.

Let see teams go deep into the bench to protect the stars or put them out there and risk it all for the win. Ahhh now I hear the union yelling. lol I hate this system from day one. Go back to the way it use to be. Millionares and the media are not greater than the game.

The owners and the union are nothing more than self serving babies.

Here's an idea. Why not just let the game keep going if it is tied at the end of regulation? Start the 5th quarter as a sudden-death quarter and continue the game where it is. That seems fair to me, but I'm probably forgetting something.

Presently...a team can be on a drive that could result in a victory for them, but they have to hurry-up because at the end of the 4th quarter, they wipe the slate clean and start with a kick-off. I don't know why they do that.

just like half time......the defense did its job keeping the other team out of the endzone for regulation.......why punish them by making them have to play another whole qtr and do it again

Because the game is tied at regulation and you have to do something fair...that is, if you have to do something.

I'm just making a suggestion, personally I'm good with the way it is.

I'd prefer both teams receive the ball at least once, then sudden death after that if necessary.

Thats pretty simple and exciting.

I bet this was started by the Vikings owner after we beat Favre down. They were talking about it during the overtime if I remember correctly. BOOOOOOOOhooooooooooo YOU LOST GET OVER IT! I don't care one way or another but lets get it right this time. Rule changes mean you never got it right the first time. You need to think outside the box and 30 to 50 years down the road not just for today.

But why? Both teams already had an hour to win the game. What's an extra possession going to do?

Tied games in the regular season and keep it as it is in the post season. You can't win it in 60 minutes? Too bad.

It doesn't get simpler or more exciting than SUDDEN DEATH.

Both sides getting the ball is just crybaby college BS.

The college system is stupid. It is as bad as penalty kicks in soccer.

I'd rather overtime be mud wrestling between opposing cheer squads than both sides get a turn.
