One year ago I issued a challenge regarding the Sudden Death rule in the NFL was unfair and the rule should be changed . I lost that fannation challenge last year but I won because the NFL rules regarding over time or sudden death did change . It only shows how closed minded and how little most of the fannation bloggers know when it comes to sports , a good idea , or how to improve professional competition . Just like I wrote this year that the Indianapolis Colts needed to clean house . Guess what somebody in sports is getting my drift . I may not post a Throwdown challenge again but I will continue to post my blogs and voice my opinion fannation .

This is a little immature, Chosen. There is no need to run back and say "I was right" for a little attention. Everyone has been right when people have doubted them on here. Grow up.

It's not about me being right . This was an issue that was long over due for the NFL especially in the playoffs when all one team had to do was score and the game was over without giving the opposing team a chance . I've been a supporter of that rule change for years and last January I pose the TD to see how many on fannation supported my stand on the issue and I lost . It's not about attention when I write a blog the support comes from the team , league , and those that know sports take action . When I looked at what was happening to my Colts this year watching how terrible they were being coached and how bad they were playing I wrote a blog in Indianapolis and on fannation look at the results . Wholesale changes in Indy . You sound like sour grapes Assassin:frown I speak about what I see as a former player in three sports baseball , basketball , and football .

It's not just about picking the right answer, but arguing your point. If you can't argue it effectively, you didn't deserve to win.

Are you Skip Bayless?

Do you know how many people were in favor of the rule change, Skip? Many. Just because you lost a TD doesn't mean no one agrees with you, slapcock. Also, "knowing sports" crap? What?

Anyone with half a brain knew changes were coming in Indy. Being a former player doesn't mean jack in this case. You are pointing out obvious opinions and trying to call them your own. Wake up.

After Jay Cutler went down with an injury and Hanie was the Bears starting QB, I said they wouldn't make the playoffs. Man, I rock. I'm going to write a blog.

I strive to get people to read my blog "The Stack" and I put a lot of effort into it and making sure my thoughts and opinions are met with facts to back me up. I do like your edge though. Perhaps if I had more of an edge, I'd get more viewers. I'll probably just keep my own style.

Are you saying that the NFL changed its overtime rules and Indy made personnel changes because you blogged about these issues?

Not sure who you are talking to, but keep doing your thing. Your blogs are easily some of the best on the site. Hands down. Keep writing.

Nathan,
Don't get discouraged. You might not get many comments on your blogs yet, but I know for a fact that there are quite a few people on this site that read and respect your articles.
I manage the Unofficial-Official FanNation Awards each year. I can't name names (because votes are submitted by secret ballot) but you made the final nominee list in 2011 by finishing amongst the top 5 overall vote-getters for Blogger of the Year.

Hahaha. Assassin is putting The Chosen Few (Uncle Rico) through the shredder.

It only shows how closed minded and how little most of the fannation bloggers know when it comes to sports

Nothing could be further from the truth. You may have had a great point when you decided to make the TD, but if you can't put forth a convincing argument then you are going to lose. It only shows how little you know what you're talking about in regard to ThrowDowns. Advise, stick to blogging.

Thanks to everyone who reads "The Stack" and please continue reading. Quality is my goal. Thanks.

The new overtime rule was changed by the competition committee in March of 2010. If you wanted it changed a year ago, what changes were you wanting to see?

January 24, 2012  11:13 AM ET

Here's an FYI to fannation . I've been writing blogs on USA Today , Indianapolis Star , Stampede Blue , Espn , NBC sports , CBS sports , just to name a few . The reaction from 90% of those that read my blogs is positive . Stack I don't know you and never read any of your blogs , Hootz I don't give a hoot , Yoda stick to Star Wars , Assassin : Frown cheer up , you experts on Throw down are professionals at arguments it's yours you can have it . I've been blogging putting it in the wind that college football need to go to a playoff format for the last 10 years pretty soon it will be coming to a screen near you . If college basketball can field 64 teams in a tournament and come out with a national champion why can't college football . This stuff is not new to me boys I've been around since the Great Wilt Chamberlain , Muhammad Ali , Jim Brown , Willie Mays and the likes . Stay tune I've got some serious stuff coming out about them . So quit hating and get on the bandwagon the stuff I'm writing about if you don't know sports you need to hear .
