I am not a fan for the new change at all.
Ahhh, Packers fans...
Seriously though, short of going to replay to review every single play, you can never really fix that problem. There will always be a calls that people feel are missed or that should not have been called.
Since 1994, the win percentage of teams who won the overtime coin toss has gone up like 10%, when from 74-94 it was right at about 50% each. Also, the amount of overtime games has significantly increased, as has the accuracy of kickers. So, naturally, something needed to be adjusted in the interest of fairness. I think this is a good start, and it's something they should add to regular season as well.
