I don't follow American football, but I just watched highlights of the Bills v Chiefs game from last week.

Ridiculous overtime rules aside (how is this entire game decided on a coin toss lmfao?), how did 2 minutes of the 4th quarter take 20 minutes to play out? I'm surprised American corporations haven't tried stuffing even more ads into games than they already have

Both teams had 60 minutes to win in regular time; overtime rules don’t have to be fair.

I wouldn’t say “they don’t have to be fair” but since each team had 60 minutes, it incentivizes them not to go to overtime because they know they might not have a chance to respond. Games need to end in a timely manner and winners need to be determined somehow

Today's game was also decided on a coin toss. Oh wait

It's not a running clock like soccer.

Clock stops for:
Going out of bounds
Incomplete passes
Change of possession
Timeouts
Play reviews (similar to VAR)

There's commercial breaks after change of possession. So when you consider that the offenses controls the clock, and that both offenses were losing and trying to preserve the clock, then scoring...it's not hard to stretch that out.

Close games in basketball often take way longer to finish 2 minutes thanks to fouls and free throws.

NCAA rules suck too. 9 OT periods? That PSU vs Illinois game was a trainwreck, the epitome of awful football. I don't want to be put out of my misery, I want to see talent and execution. 🗑️🗑️🗑️

NCAA rules prior to this year weren't perfect either, which is why they changed them. Plus, the 25 is far too close for the NFL. It's QB-centric, and you want to limit these big NFL arms to the redzone? You want to cage Tyreek 🐆? Dude only makes 40+ yard plays 🗑️🗑️

NCAA rules were made for 18-24 y/o kids, where half the teams don't have a competent kicker nor QB. There's only drama because you can't always count on the long snapper who literally has ONE JOB! 🗑️

At the NFL level, rebuttals are the way to go. Execute to the highest level and go win it. The game we're mad about is the perfect example with continuous, drama-filled 75 yd drives. Yet you prefer to see a 2 pt conversion shootout? That's weak sauce 👎🏾

Hi fellow fishes,
I worked in consulting for 6 years with Accenture, Capgemini in India.
I moved to US and got my H4 EAD in December 2021.
While all the major clients I worked for in these 6 years were from NA region, but head-hunters told me to start from associate level as my previous work experience outside US doesn't matter.
I have been job hunting for 2 months now, are there any relevant pointers you guys would want to share!!
