    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.

    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.
    In the midst of this losing season, 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, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    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.
