[QUOTE=BigBensAngel7;3510684]as i said before, this wouldnt be an issue if it were alex smith of the 9ers and edwards of the bills in an overtime game. the rules are what they are and everyone knows what they are. if you lose the coin toss then you better play your tail off on defense if you want your beloved peyton to get a chance. fantasy football has ruined the actual game of football now.[/QUOTE]
Fantasy football has nothing to do with this. Why are you even bringing it up?
Alex Smith and Trent Edwards are not who fans are paying $120 a ticket to see. They want to see Philip Rivers and Drew Brees and Peyton Manning. When something as random as a coin toss is determining the outcome of a game and not the best player in the stadium, that's a problem.
This isn't the first year that the competition committee is being asked to change the OT format. Thankfully, it's finally the year that they've finally figured out that the current system is a joke and the bad publicity eventually caught up to them.
"Play Defense!!!!" is not a very good argument for the current system. Neither is "those are the rules." Enough with games being decided by a coin toss.
