Ok, so offenses can no longer spike the ball to stop the clock inside of 3 seconds of each half without facing an automatic clock runoff? How f'n ridiculous is that!!!!! What group of nitwits actually voted yes to this rule? Talk about needlessly ruining games and pissing off fans. Seriously, imagine for a moment it's the National Championship game: -Losing team gets the ball on their own 20 with 0:55 left and no timeouts. -Offense pushes the ball downfield and is one completion away from FG range to win it. -They get the big completion down to the 18 yard line. Receiver is tackled w/ 0:10 on the clock. -Offense hurries up to spike the ball to get the FG unit on the field. -Snap goes off exactly at the 3 second mark. -Opposing coach throws the flag to challenge the time. -Refs stop the game for two minutes. Game energy is killed. -Review shows the ball was snapped at 0:0297. -Refs charge offense with a 2.97 second runoff. -Game over. -Team B wins National Championship on a rule technicality.
