    I'm in the 3 points for a win, 2 points for an OT/SO win, 1 point for OT/SO Loss camp.

    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    I'm also of the opinion that they should play overtime until somebody wins. You'd start to see a lot of road teams really go after the extra point a lot faster.

    I still don't understand why having a winner every game was necessary in the first place. I always felt that a tie game set up an exciting environment the next time the two teams met. Given that the current climate seems to necessitate a winner every game, my preference would be playoff style OT with 2 points awarded to the winner and 0 to the loser.

    Don't listen to Naysay, and get off his lawn you whipper-snapper.

    Even BASEBALL plays until one team wins..
