A Historic Day In America

No and I'm not referring to the Health Care bill signed into law today by President Obama. But the new NFL OT Rule Changes!

By a passing vote of 28 to 4 (Buffalo, Minnesota, Cincinnati and Baltimore) the OT rule changes will be in effect for the 2010 post season. Here are some of the initial comments posted on Twitter.

@SI_PeterKing Overtime reform passed, 28-4. Oh happy day. http://myloc.me/59Gkd

@PostBroncos Broncos Blog: Overtime rule passes http://dpo.st/cdNeXM

@nfl RT @JasonLaCanfora: NFL's OT changes for playoffs passed. press conference upcoming. check out NFL.com and NFL Network for more

(This is Funny!!!)
@richeisen Sorry, pal. It's not retroactive. RT @MichaelInMaine @richeisen So it's Vikings Ball 1st and 10 at their own 25??? YES!!!

@PostBroncos The new OT rule is permanent - right now for playoff only. Plenty of owners want to expand it to regular season, too.

@PostBroncos Owners meet again May. Will be more research and discussion, and perhaps a vote, on reg season OT rule then.

@PostBroncos Owners felt new OT rule a good football decision. "No phase of the game is adversly affected."

@Adam_Schefter There was so much arm twisting on modified OT rule that it's as if Roger Goodell was Barack Obama and Rich McKay was Nancy Pelosi.

I'd like to know what our fans have to say about this new rule change.
