The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.
I give it a "meh". I still think OT should allow both teams a possession. These new OT rules didn't change anything in Denver's win over Pittsburgh. My OT rules would have required Denver to kickoff to the Steelers after Tebow's long TD pass. And if the Steelers scored a TD as well then it becomes sudden death. Next team to score wins.
I know television and health concerns play into the equation. But why dont they just play a 7-10 minute OT period?
...and this one belongs to the Reds.
I think they're making it overly complicated. It should be:
- first team to 6 points wins
- overtime period is 15 minutes
- finish tied, game is tied
- finish with one team leading, that team wins
Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.
