No More Ties! Will Griffith

Well, not these ties.
The current NFL Overtime rules are too dependent on the coin toss. 34% of teams that receive the ball first win the game on their first possession, which means that the opposing team does not even get a chance to score.
In today's NFL, a Touchdown, which is what this referee is signifying, would end a game that is in overtime, even if the other team has not yet had a chance to score.

When a fan's favorite team ties, they often get upset, having the same reaction that this toddler is having.

How to get rid of ties:

The NFL's best option is to switch the same set of rules that the NCAA uses for college football.
