1539 - Overtime
Regarding the NFL overtime rules. I am totally glad that the Hawks won the other day, and I am glad that the Denver offense never got to handle the ball, BUT I still have to say that I am totally opposed to any kind of system that doesn't give equal time to the offenses of both teams. What kind of person thinks that there is any fairness in settling a game with the coin flip? Field goal kickers are so good these days that the winner of the flip is pretty much the winner of the game. This system trivializes everything the game is about. I am trying and failing to imagine the room of people who heard this inane proposal and nodded their heads servilely. It had to be a Dilbert-esque situation.
