Didn't see this posted anywhere yet...

Playoff Reseeding: (shot-down) Proposition that wild card teams with better records than some division champs should be seeded higher in the playoffs on the basis of their record.

Things that were approved:
  • No forceout rule on receptions, must get both feet in bounds.
  • Allowing coin-toss winners to defer decision to kick to the second half.
  • Field goals and XPs will be subject to review.
  • Direct snap from center untouched by the QB will now be a live ball.
  • 5 yard incidental facemask is gone; intentional 15 yard variety remains.
  • One defensive player can now be mic'ed up.

Can anyone explain the strategy of deferring on coin toss? And does this make any kind of difference?
