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
The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. -- Terrance Mann (Field of Dreams)
