My proposed fix to college and NFL overtime. 1) If the game is tied at the end of regulation, there will follow 1 overtime period, consisting of two halfs of 7:30 each. 2) A kick-off begins each half. 3) Ordinary coin toss rules apply at the start of each half of OT, as if each half were the half of a game, except that goals do not switch during a half (but may switch between halves if the team with the goal choice so desires) 4) Each team gets 1 time out per half 5) If one team gains more than a one possession lead - i.e. 9 or more points - the game ends instantly. 6) If the score is still tied at the end of this OT period, the game enters what ammounts to penalty kicks - except with conversions. Team A first gets a conversion attempt at goal 1, then team B at the same goal. They can go for either 1 or 2 points. if still tied, Team B at goal 1, then team A. If still tied, process repeats at goal 2. Repeat entire process until a winner is chosen 6) may sound absurd, but if two teams are truly equal in points after 5 quarters of play, why not? The game would probably end quicker than you think, and would only continue for a long time (1 point conversion after one point conversion) if BOTH teams desired it to. Example: Team A goes for two points. If they fail, Team B only has to kick a 1 pointer to win. If they succeed, team B needs 2. Tied if success, lose if failure. So team A might go for 1. Team b can then choose to end it right there, by going for 2. Failure = loss, success = win. If they didn't go for 2, and kicked 1, and each team just kicked one back and forth - EVENTUALLY someone would miss or fake a field goal conversion.
