#3018067 how does a tie work?

Posted by Boltergeist on 13 October 2014 - 12:57 AM

I was mulling over the idea that after twenty seasons of wins and losses the panthers were due for the infrequent tie at some point. And then I looked up this historical account of ties.


I realized that ever since the overtime rule changes were instituted, the nfl has had a tied game at least once per season, where up until that point with the old rules, ties had become relatively scarce over time. The tie in 2012 was a case where neither team scored for the entire period, so I guess you could attribute that to being part of the normal swing of things as the nfl were. The other two games, ours included, are cases where both teams scored field goals in overtime. So these rules definiteR games.

Without the new rules the Vikings would have lost that game last year and we would've lost this game today, so a tie doesn't look so bad.


Thank the 2008 AFC Wild Card Game for that - when San Diego won the toss and drove the length of the field and scored on a 22 yd Sproles TD. So for a bit after that we got to hear some media types acted like the idea that Peyton Manning didn't get a chance to get the ball in a playoff OT game was letting the terrorists win. That set the wheels in motion for the current OT rule. Funny thing is once again Peyton Manning ended up in that same situation in a regular season game (this yea's SEA game) and some treated it as this big injustice.


Also with the assist, Tampa blowing a lead in the 4th quarter 2 weeks earlier against San Diego (in TB). Bucs hold on to that lead, them and DEN get in the playoffs, meaning Gruden and Shanahan might have kept their jobs barring playoff gacks. Turner would be out in SD. Shanahan wouldn't have been available to WAS and they don't go after Griffin in the draft. The Rams got Brockers, Jenkins, Ogletree, Bailey and Stacy (also Isaiah Pead and Rokevious Watkins in a trade with the Bears for the Alshon Jeffery pick). It's the butterfly effect that keeps on giving.

That would really suck if the tattoo artist was pranking him and he was actually a Dolphins fan.


From the look on his face, he might still believe that is a Dolphin helmet

The Seahawks first 3 games were against Rodgers, Rivers, and Peyton. I'm willing to give them a pass on the early start. Now if they start giving up plays to Austin Davis, the Arizona pupu platter, or Derek Carr - then that might be reason for alarm

Reunite norv turner with ron rivera and u become effective on both sides of the ball.

That may not even work. I wonder if more of your o issues lie with running the Coryell. I used to be a huge proponent, but in the last 2 years I've changed my tune watching PR run McCoys O (Erhardt-Perkins with ZBS).

I know your OL talent is much better suited for that since plays don't need to develop like the Coryell plays do. It's just the question of whether the WRs can get earlier separation and Cam can make the right reads/throws.

The Bucs are on the wrong channel - the Biggest Loser is on NBC.

The DR is working Frankie and Derrick hard to save Donny, they have started the wheels on saving him or at least make it seem like they are (I'm a tad concerned they could just be acting like they are to try and please the live feeders) by trying to flip Caleb's vote.



Donny also tried to make the TAFY task to keep it together. Funny thing is, it's kind of ended up that way. Live feeders are saying vote NO all over social media as their protest at Donny's likely leaving tomorrow.

It has to be Zach Attack or Hayden coming back.


Hopefully they'll do some damage - cause otherwise right now Derrick has this game on lockdown.

Everyone just realized (on feeds) that they have something missing. The TAFY neighborhood watch has started, it's been hilarity.

road teams are 4-0-2 thus far - if Palace gets a point it will be the first time since 04 that no home team wins on a day with at least 7 matches.

They know it won't use a lot of memory cause traffic will be small.

Just kidd, just kidd!


Well Shad Khan owns the Jags as well so the small traffic isn't an issue

The Detonators got their way on Thursday, but the poo has hit the fan since. Frankie's game has been blown up - so much so that he ended up telling the house about his sister.
