Maybe the players should have an academic test determine the winner of a tied game. Then we'd get some egg heads on the field. They could be just like the third string quarterback, dressing but never playing until that sweet OT test on 20th century history.

Jake, it was Bettman who declared that the fans didn't like tie games. We don't know of or recall any actual fans even being asked.
Without adding up the numbers, we'd bet that since overtime was dispensed with during WWII, the percentage of NHL
(or even minor pro) games ending in ties was closer to 20%, and we also don't recall anyone being bothered by that.
Real fans knew a tie was often a fair and just result.

It's a bias solely of American sports fans that ties are somehow unsatisfactory, and as regards hockey, sunbelt American fans
in particular -- the only paying customers Bettman cared anything about when he took over as NHL commissioner. The NHL
could've at least returned to the pre-WWII overtime format, or adopted the WHA OT format, but Bettman, with contempt for
all hockey tradition, instead introduced his ridiculous 3-on-3 / shoot-out carnival sideshow version.

Just us, it seems, but for hockey and football, let the tie stand unless it's a playoff game. Making overtime and sudden-death
a regular-season commonplace diminishes their impact in post-season play. By cracky, dagnabbit. And get off our lawn!

RECENT TIE-GAME STATISTICS
National Hockey League -- Fourteen per cent of all NHL regular-season games in the 2003-04 regular season ended in a tie (170 games of 1,230).

I'm not sure the ties are much of an issue for the NFL.

right and you will see more ties now...its every week it feels where theres a last second fg attempt to win OT..last..dolphins/bears for example..

I have two ideas for overtime. Both involve getting rid of the complicated ruleset they put into practice some years ago.

1. Go back to how it was before. Sudden death. No "everyone gets a turn" method. Who cares if there are ties or not.

2. People wanted the overtime rule to change because they hated the hurry up and kick a field goal way of winning games. So my idea is get rid of kickers AND punters. Flip a coin. opening kickoff to the other team. Teams cannot kick field goals or punt. Turnovers are on downs. First team to score a touchdown wins. If time expires, it is a tie.

Either I would not be against making it a short period, aka not a regular quarter.

And this is only for regular season games. Post season seems to have too much history involved where there is a game winning field goal to remove that rule to begin with. Such a huge change, the NFL should have retired the Super Bowl and started over with a version 2 or something.

The Browns are in overtime again, for the fourth time this season. Unbelievable!

Default Kickers

I agree with getting rid of kickers and punters. There is nothing less exciting than someone trying a last minute field goal.

I guess I'm the first to say so, but I love the OP's idea. I find long field goals to be exciting, and it would be cool to see the contest go on, once both kickers exceeded the 50 yard mark. I think the record long field goal is still 63 yards, but someone may have broken that record. I bet the existing record would be broken if the NFL implemented this plan.

They will never actually do it, but I do love the idea. To me, the 59 yarder that beat the Browns, and the 63 yarder by Carolina (both to win their respective games) were exciting and amazing finishes.
