  1. Yes. Score a TD then you force the other team to have to get a TD which puts a boat load of pressure on them, which means if you've got a good defense, it plays to your advantage. The closer you get to end zone the harder it is to score because of the condensed field.
  2. There's no perfect way to do OT in football since someone will always have the advantage of having the ball first. That's just the way football works. NFL moved the PAT back because they wanted to make the kicking game more valuable. Well this suggestion gives a benefit to the teams that have the better kickers.
  3. The hill in CF in Houston is no more!
  4. Braves are now 20-23. They get win number 20 on May 23rd in game 43. Didn't get win 20 last year until June 16th in game 66.
  5. Who says Matt Adams can't hit lefties? He just did there!!
  6. YES!!!! BRAVES WIN!!! MATT ADAMS!!!! 6-5!!!
  7. YES! MARKAKIS TIES IT AT 5!!! WHAT A GAME!!
  8. Peterson strikes out on just 3 pitches. Who didn't see that coming?
  9. Oh great, Jace Peterson gets to face a LHP. Automatic out #1 incoming.
  10. Looky there, Luke Jackson throws 1 pitch and gets the 3rd out but it's too late now as the Pirates now lead 5-4. Thanks Johnson and Snitker.
  11. Thanks Jim Johnson!! I waited all night and you do this ****.
  12. Ender runs it down!! We're heading to the bottom of the 8th with the Braves up 4-3!
  13. Yes!!! Great job Kemp! Braves lead 4-3!!
  14. YES!!! Phillips RBI single and we're tied at 3!! It was worth the wait!!
  15. Emilio Bonifacio is now 2-for-22 as a pinch-hitter this year. Why is he always the first option off the bench?
  16. Yeah. I actually suggested something like this. During the regular season the NHL plays a 5 minute OT period and then if it's still tied they do a best of 2-out of 3 penalty shots deal and if it's still tied then they just keep the penalty shots going until someone scores and the other team doesn't. Boom no more ties.
  17. I know some people are ill about the shorter OT period but I've got no issues with it. I don't think it will honestly result in more ties. Seriously. There aren't that many ties in the NFL. At least not like there used to be back in the days before OT was adopted in the mid 70s. Overtime was adopted by the NFL in 1974. Since then there's been 44 games that resulted in ties in 42 seasons. So basically 1 per season. Since 1990 there's been only 18 in 27 seasons. So less than 1 per year. I don't think shortening OT to 10 minutes is gonna result in more ties.
