Post Date: 2010-03-24 11:30:44 by Brian S
March 23 (Bloomberg) -- The National Football League changed its overtime rules for postseason games to increase the chances of both teams playing offense. Owners voted 28-4 to require the first team with the ball to score a touchdown to win the game immediately. Currently, the first team to score any points wins. If the first team playing offense kicks a field goal, the other team gets the ball. If the score is still tied after that teams possession, play continues in the existing sudden-death format and the next points win the game. Indianapolis Colts President Bill Polian said the new rule would help defenses. If they can hold the team that gets the ball first to a field ...

NFL To Examine 2 Possessions In Playoffs OT
Post Date: 2010-03-17 12:45:02 by Brian S
NEW YORK (AP) -- NFL owners will vote next week whether to allow each team a possession in overtime in the playoffs if the team winning the OT coin toss kicks a field goal on the first series. Previously, the game would end whenever either side scores, as happened in the NFC championship game in January, with New Orleans beating Minnesota on Garrett Hartley's kick. But NFL competition committee chairman Rich McKay says a trend has developed showing too strong an advantage for teams winning the coin toss to start overtime. If the team that falls behind by three points on the first series also kicks a field goal, then the game would continue under current sudden death rules. The ...

Tiger Woods will return to competitive golf next month to play in the Augusta Masters, he said in a statement on his website on Tuesday. "The Masters is where I won my first major and I view this tournament with great respect. After a long and necessary time away from the game, I feel like I'm ready to start my season at Augusta," he said on his website. The world's number one golfer put his game on hold in the wake of a major sex scandal which erupted at the end of last year. "I have undergone almost two months of inpatient therapy and I am continuing my treatment," Woods added. "Although I'm returning to competition, I still have a lot of work to do ...
Culled Out (Zero Admin May Ban Fishing)

I heard about this on an outdoors radio show two and 1/2 weeks ago, it's just getting national attention. And I'm posting something other than football and baseball! The Obama administration will accept no more public input for a federal strategy that could prohibit U.S. citizens from fishing some of the nation's oceans, coastal areas, Great Lakes, and even inland waters. This announcement comes at the time when the situation supposedly still is "fluid" and the Interagency Ocean Policy Task Force still hasn't issued its final report on zoning uses of these waters. That's a disappointment, but not really a surprise for fishing industry insiders who have ...

Major League Lushes The B&WL may have collapsed in 1891, but drinking ones way around the diamond continued unabated, despite the actions of hostile, teetotaling owners and managers. For example: Arthur Bugs Raymond: The owner of a wicked spitball, Bugs (who got his nickname from his weird windup and generally twitchy mound antics) was a managers nightmare. He didnt like being told what to do. By anyone. When word of his epic nights on the town started getting around, his manager, John McGraw, hired a private detective to tail Bugs and report back on his activities. The detective was fired when McGraw entered a bar and found the PI and Bugs in the midst ...
