First healthcare... now this.

http://sports.espn.go.com...

Both teams must have the opportunity to possess the ball once during the extra period, unless the team that receives the opening kickoff scores a touchdown on its initial possession, in which case it is the winner.

• If the team that possesses the ball first scores a field goal on its initial possession, the other team shall have the opportunity to possess the ball. If [that team] scores a touchdown on its possession, it is the winner. If the score is tied after [both teams have a] possession, the team next scoring by any method shall be the winner.

• If the score is tied at the end of a 15-minute overtime period, or if [the overtime period's] initial possession has not ended, another overtime period will begin, and play will continue until a score is made, regardless of how many 15-minute periods are necessary.

jk, but the should leave it alone. If it is not broke, dont fix it.

So a system where a coin toss has just as much if not bigger factor than the teams themselves is not broke?

Besides, this is just for playoffs, not the whole season.

I have to facepalm for Wilf voting against.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

Although the solution is kind of clunky.

No it doesn't. One team gets ball and scores. Other team gets ball after they score.

It was in need of a change, but I do agree with Rangar.
I'll get by with a little help from my friends.

How about a simple overtime? Like 15 minute overtime periods, highest score at the end wins. Not this crap that they're giving us.

I do like that Idea if we go to it but I like it the way it is.

Everyone gets 60 min, you should do your job than!

See R_R is a vikes fan and still is hurt. But if it played the other way he may think differently.

Not really, since my opinion on overtime isn't based on that (the rules were already such that they didn't benefit the saints in other areas of the game, the refs just didn't, you know, FOLLOW the rules). Although I wouldn't be calling out Wilf for any irony.

I like it, because it nuetralizes (to a degree, not completely) the benefit of winning the coin flip in OT.

I see that, but did you not like it before?

I don't get it how could anyone possibly have liked the OT before it was a joke!

This is a million times better. Maybe not perfect but HUGE improvement!
