    NFL updates rule: Time to be reviewable - ESPN

    Good addition.

    If I recall, last year against the Bills something like this occurred before the half which helped the Pats.

    Don't use the playoffs as the test bed for a new rule, that's what preseason is for.

    If the Refs go over the time allotment, do the teams get draft picks?

    This sounds like it's to make sure that refs get it right regarding the timing of spiked balls and whatnot. Similar to how NBA refs can go back and see if the shot-clock expired before a shot.

    I don't expect this to come up too often, but I don't really see a negative side to this, either.

    As far as implementing a new rule for the playoffs, I feel like this is a minor tweak of a current setup, rather than an altogether new rule with unknown consequences.

    I say in general good move. However, with this addition, delay of game penalties should be challengable also!

    I like this part

    1. No team has ever scored on a kickoff to end the first half. :rolleyes:

    2. How do you define "significant opportunity for the offensive team to score" ?

    God I love Goodell, best commish ever IMHO, and by best I meant Worst.

    I don't understand at all why the kickoff returns don't deserve time added on. What if the kicker boots it out of bounds? Is the offense deserving of the opportunity to get on the field with a few seconds left? I'm with you on what it means to have a significant opportunity to score. Hopefully it's clear in the rule book (otherwise I'd vote for Goodell to rewrite tax laws for us) Even an offensive team with 4th and 99 with 1 second on the clock has an opportunity to score.

    What kind of moron came up with this unfair rule in the first place?

    If you screw up the time, it only matters if it A) hurts the losing team and B) the losing team is only losing by 8 or less

    Yea let's not get things "right" unless it's to help the losing team in a close game... WHAT... THE...

    And "signficant opportunity to score", who comes up with this crap. So from the 49 but not the 50? Or from the 45 but not the 46...? Or at the refs discretion?

    Buy hey man, this is the new Goodell NFL man!

    This guy should be forced to suffer the ultimate humiliation, coach of the Raiders.

    Good call. Next up should be pass interference... though I could understand how that would anger King Polian.
