I guess the coin toss in OT DOESN'T Really Matter...

It is possibly the dumbest rule in all of Professional sports.  Either team wins the flip last week, there is a strong possibility that either team goes down and scores a TD.  It is unfortunate that the rule is what it is for the team that lost, but also for a fan that enjoyed the entire game.  I for one came away wondering how entertaining the game would have been had they played a full quarter, or at the very least the losing team had an opportunity to match them.  

Regular season, fine, who gives a ****.  Postseason, the game is decided by a coin flip.

KC won the toss, so we will never know.

Yup. Some dude on Instagram was stalking me because I said “Play Defense”. 

Whiny babies.

And teams have never won 2 back to back OT games in. The playoffs

And no team has had ever beaten the same team twice in a season when trailing by 10+ at the half.

Just glad the Chiefs are out, as well as Brady.  Sick of the same teams winning all the time; feels good!

It really does. It is super exciting to see a Super Bowl without Brady especially but Mahomes and Rodgers too and 2 teams that no one expected to be there. First Super Bowl in quite a while that I am looking forward to.

Regular season, tie at end of regulation equals a tie, and game is over.

Playoffs, play an extra quarter.  

Honestly I would prefer a system that doesn't extend the game too long but doesn't end in a tie. I hate ties so much. 

But if the only option is to give it to chance I would take ties over coin flips

I understand your reasoning with Brady, but the Chiefs only have 1 super bowl win in 4 AFC champ appearances. They are going to win another at some point but if they don't, well Andy Reid is going to go down as the coach with the highest Conference Champ : Super Bowl win ratio.

I would have agreed with you a few years ago but the game is so offensive centric there's a clear advantage when you get the ball first...if you don't want to add more time then just give the ball to the visiting team first....a coin flip is lame.

And if tied at the end of that quarter?

Another. 

And another.

And another. 

Then FG tries from 60 yards like a shootout.

One game with an interception does not end "the silly discussion." 

In fact, if anything, it strengthens the argument.

Both offenses should get the ball once, both teams did. OT rules should be changed to make this the standard.

Yeah...isn't this funny that a thread was started based on that discussion, and in fact strengthens the argument put up about this?

Yeah, remember when everyone went apesh!t for like a week over this. Ridiculous.

I find it funny that you guys are arguing against yourselves on this topic!  :)
