I like the college/NFL playoff system. Give the offense and defense on both teams a chance to take the field and go from there.

My nickles worth anyway.

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.

Great point Chuck.

I don't think that giving a whole extra quarter of play is the right answer either. The idea of a sudden death overtime is something separates Football and Hockey from the other major sports here in America, and I think that should remain intact. However, I think we all can agree that the flipping of a coin is not how we want to be deciding games, which is why these new rules were imposed.

not a whole 15 minute quarter, but also not just like 5 minutes...I nice median right in between would allow for both teams to get a crack at it and be the fairest option, but thats JMHO

I wasn't even referring to the Packer game this has pretty much been a staple in every playoff game, even the Packer one. Sometime its not even from game to game, its in the same quarter.

I dunno, but I don't have any place for the new system.

If the team who wins the coin-toss before overtime scores a field-goal, then the opposing team will get the ball back. However, if either team scores a touchdown at any time, they will win the game. If both teams score field goals, then it will go to an actual "sudden death" where the next team to score will win.

Sounds fine to me, but why not do this for all the games?
I hadn't heard about that. Interesting. Something needed to be done, at least this is a start and acknowledgment that is wasn't right to begin with.
