NFL Overtime proposal

Credit goes to the ravens, but here is how it works for overtime.  BTW I like it.

 

It works like this: One team picks the spot of the ball to start overtime, and the other team chooses whether to play offense or defense.

If the one team picks, for example, the offense’s own 20-yard line, the opponent would then choose whether to play offense from their own 20 or to play defense, with the other team having the ball on its own 20. This would minimize greatly the impact of the coin toss; under this proposal, the coin toss would be used only to give the team that wins the toss the right to pick the spot of the ball (along with the end zone to be defended) or to choose offense or defense.

 

Under one of the two proposals to be made by the Ravens, overtime would proceed in sudden-death fashion, with the first score by either team ending the game and up to 10 minutes of extra time. (If the game remains tied at that point, the game’s outcome would be a tie.) Under the other proposal (favored, we’re told, by Patriots coach Bill Belichick), the game would continue for another seven minutes and 30 seconds, without a sudden-death component. Whoever leads after the extra time has ended would be the winner. (Again, if the game remains tied after the extra session, the game’s outcome would be a tie.)

Why does OT have to be complicated?

How about if tied after four, just adding a 10 minute 5th quarter with 2 timeouts per team.

Coin toss just determines who gets the ball.

Ties Suck!

I said the same thing you did at the same time. Just busting stones, I agree with you.

OOPS, my bad, mixed you up with Riverboat33

old school- possession until someone doesn't match the score. 

Agreed, no ties.

Ties are for babies

Was thinking the same exact thing. They try to make it like video games now to keep the attention of the kids I guess. Same with hockey, shootout in regular season, but full periods in playoffs. Stupid.
