      They changed it a few years back, before that, the team losing the coin toss was only guaranteed a chance if they stopped the other team. The change made it so that even if the team winning the toss got a FG, the other team still get's a chance...but if you give up a TD on that first drive, then no dice. I mean there's really not much you can do to make it completely fair. You can't play a whole extra quarter, the games are draining, taxing and dangerous as it is.

      One thing you could do, is let the kickers decide it. Start them each on their own 30 yard line, they each take turns kicking and then moving back 5 yards till someone missed.

      Yea it's a fair point FL and also there are both sides to the game and defense is as important as offense.

      Like you say have to settle a game somehow.

      Don't really follow the draft but Pats pick seems a decent one?https://www.nfl.com/prospects/n'keal-harry?id=32194841-5265-4593-d716-d972ec2d4468.

      All the talk should be about Mahomes right now.

      The Lions put all their hopes on there DB setup yesterday.

      They did a good job but Mahomes still threw for over 300 yards and the Chiefs pulled out a late win.

      First uk game coming up Bears v Raiders,anyone going? Burflict booted for the year after another shitty hit. Patriots struggled on offence against the Bills,dodgy hit on Allen knocked him out,apart from that the Pats defence kicking ass at the moment.Saints beating the Cowboys was good sunday night.

      Incredible game yesterday between the Chiefs and Pats. 

      The Chiefs D has made some major strides over the last few weeks.

      Obviously the talk around here is all about the officials missing a td ,a hold and the fumble but the Pats are not good this year.The Saints/49ers game was insane,game of the year?

      Watched the docu about Aaron Hernandez.

      On the face of it, a young kid who blew it all because he was an idiot.

      When you delve a bit deeper, so many issues that affected his wellbeing.

      The CTE thing is awful.

      I don’t know.  He was a thug in high school.  He was a thug when he was at Florida.  He remained a thug when he was with the Pats.

      That being said, I have a couple of friends that played at Rutgers and played in the NFL.

      They talk to my son who is a very good lacrosse player.  He is 6’2 weighs 210lb.  He’s 15 years old.

      Two former NFL players have told him not to play football.

      Being a thug kinda goes with the territory of american football.Don't think a week goes by without someone getting busted college or pro.The percentage of kids outta college that make it as a pro is also way low,so  ya gotta load of pissed off 'that could of been' types wandering around,it's a messed up system.But it's the superbowl,trump and hannity doing a pre-game,lots of flag waving,military,uniform fetish worship some god awful half time show and in the middle Mahomes v Jimmy G.

      One thing I think could be a trend with the retirement of Luke Kuechly and Andrew Luck is with the lasting effects of injuries and CTE that some of the more talented players will retire earlier after making some coin.

      As for the super bowl hopefully KC can win because I have too many annoying 49er fans ;D

      Haven't been following a lot of NFL. I believe it's going to be a tight game, but I have a feeling the Chiefs are going to win it.

      KC is a nice city and the Chiefs fans are one of the loudest around -besides I have a few friends from KC- so hopefully they win it tomorrow

      It'll be a tight game I think but expect the Chiefs to just have enough offensively for the 49ers.

      Mahomes is the most exiting player in the NFL for me so I'm going for the Chiefs to win.
