    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'd rather see the teams do a full game replay FA Cup style later in the week. Don't want to play another game? Go for the win. OK, I'm kidding. Sort of.

    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 kinda like the way it is now. I actually like college's style better because it creates more excitement. I do think that once OT gets going the teams are both so tired that it usually is decided by a big time mistake. You play a guaranteed 10 minutes it may be 10 poorly played minutes.

    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 is this: 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.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    That makes too much sense, the Rules Committee would never go for it.
