Just the sort of kick Mare was missing last year.

Jets fans certainly appreciated his missing a FG!!! :D

I don't know what the stats are but on ethat's stuck in my head from 20 years ago is that of the first 122 OTs, 62 were won by the team winning the toss and 60 by the coin toss losers.

If that pattern has continued all these years then obviously there isn't an advantage to winning the toss.

It seems the 50% ratio is still intact according to this article from 5 years ago. Interesting that I've learnt there is even a debate about the OT system, initially prompted by your post.

Always thought that it's worked well enough, myself.

Woohoo, just got tickets for Giants v Dolphins!

I'm in block 517, anyone know if this is the Dolphin or Giants' end? :lux:

It was so loud in the stadium when the Dolphins had a first or third down deep in their own half

That doesn't come across on TV

Elliott - Strathclyde

Still on the subject of OT, do you know the highest scoring game to involve overtime?

Hint - it involved Wesley Walker!!! :p

Erm, week 3, 1986?

Another argument for the college overtime system. ;)

Strathclyde Eagle 12-09-2007 11:43 PM

Is that everyone with tickets now? Duke of York beforehand?

The hallmark of Dolphin draft inepitude since 2005, although I should probably get a Jason Allen and Ted Ginn jersey to complete the set. :lux:

I cant wait for the end of next month now :lux:

Did everyone make it through Week 1 of the Survival Game? Seattle made me sweat for a bit but listening to the game in the 2nd half my suspicions about the Tampa offense were correct - they still don't have one.

I've forgotten the link to make my Week 2 pick!!!

Oisin 13-09-2007 05:31 PM

Reading between the lines here it seems that the London game has been such a success already they may well repeat it next year And the BBC having signed a deal will surely help.

Belichick fined $500,000 for the video taping incident

The Patriots fined $250,000 and lose a draft pick

There is something in the air today with hefty fines

:eek:

One thing I've learnt with these things is there's no need to be too clever - just take the obvious picks.
