Default Re: Overtime sudden death

If people don't like field goals in OT, the only rule change I'd support is a ban on kicking field goals. None of this convoluted bullshit with if-then rules on every OT possession.

There would be a certain appeal as well as an extra level of finality if the only way you could win in OT was by dominating your opponent with a TD or a safety. At least that way, nobody could say you didn't "earn" the victory. There would probably be a lot more ties, too.

But this is just a random theoretical tangent. I don't really think things are so bad that they need to change it.
