I seem to have jinxed all the Falcons fans. Oops.

Better run and hide before Falcon's fans come after you.

But I wasn't rooting for any team. ._.

 

I guess the only mistake I made was judging a bit early. I definitely was feeling like the game would be boring, but it quickly got exciting. An obvious improvement over last year's disappointing game. 

 

Now, allow me to hide for the next month so I can avoid being known as the man who jinxed and ruined everything.

 

You're gonna need a whole new fresh start, to feel like a new person.

I like how no one bothered to criticize me when I ran a troll account, but now feel perfectly fine with burying my grave due to this.

Please people, I beg for mercy. I'm good at puzzles, not football games.

Falcons dug their grave long before Overtime.  

Thats not the point, the point is it was an anti-climatic ending to a great match. I don't care who won. It was just a crappy ending... period. Winning such a prestegious championship as the Superbowl on a coin flip doesn't feel right at all.

No, that is exactly the point.  The Falcon's allowed a rally starting late in the 3rd quarter.  I don't have a horse in this race either but it wasn't "decided by a coinflip", it was decided by the better team winning.

What bothers me is that if the Patriots made that 1-pointer, they wouldn't have even needed to enter OT.

A lot of cool plays from both sides though. At the end of the day, a good game is what matters most.

The NFL Overtime format is garbage.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I could have sworn the OT rule used to be that each team had a chance to have the ball.  Having it where only one time gets it just doesn't seem right.

The overtime winner WAS decided by a coinflip. Falcons didn't even get a throw in OT. So yes, the overtime was largely influenced by a coin flip. It isn't about the fact that the falcons let the Pats come back in this match. It's just that THAT ending in OT did not feel compelling at all as a viewer. And I know I'm not the only one. I'm not even a big football fan, I just felt like this could have been a much better ending if both teams had a shot in OT.



Predictions for LT console sales:

PS4: 120M

XB1: 70M

WiiU: 14M

3DS: 60M

Vita: 13M

Sorry man...mercy granted.

It used to be that you would get the win with any scoring play on the first drive, and then it changed to each team having at least one drive, to the current system where you can win on the first drive with a touchdown.

Each team gets the ball if the coinflip winner scores a field goal or doesn't score at all.  It ends immediately if either team scores a touchdown at any point.
