  • 2012 Rule Changes

    Changes to our favorite game have certainly become a yearly routine.

    Anyone know which rules are changed for 2012?

      I'm pretty sure this is a new rule that all turnovers are now reviewed automatically. So a coach doesn't have to use a challenge to review a fumble for example.

      Also, postseason overtime rules now apply to all regular season games. No opening possession game winning field goals anymore.

      Let's put the women and children to bed and go lookin' for dinner

        too bad......i liked sudden death.
        now it's more like that college fiasco....
        due to the fact that I am from the Woodstock generation ...

          I guess they feel if a team fights back to tie a game late and lose in OT because of a coin toss on a FG it's unfair. There should have a right to get ball and try to tie again or win. However the team that gets ball first can still win sudden death style by going down and scoring a TD
          Football has been very, very good to us.
          After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
          But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

          # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

          1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
          2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
          3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
          4-New York Giants!!!
          Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

            The blow to the head of QB now has to be with force or intent- so tap to head isn't gonna do it.

              I like this change. Though it will probably one of the more inconsistant calls made.
