Just Not Fair


Personally I'd like to see teams to play it out. It would be more fair. You could keep the sudden death aspect, except that after one team scores, they kick off and the other team has an opportunity to even up the game or win. If they can't do it, the game is over.

Unfortunately the league doesn't see it that way, and I'm not sure why. There are so many different considerations that the competition committee has to take into account that and I don't have all their information. That's the way it is and we have to go by how it is. Obviously the league feels it's the best way to do it. It comes up so seldom that it doesn't stimulate much talk until it happens.

But if you're on the sidelines and you battle your ass off to win the football game, you hate to see the outcome decided by a coin toss.
