View Full Version : Football So about the coin toss yesterday?

Excuse me for a moment, but for those of us at the game yesterday or those who were listening to the radio.... Was it just me or was the coin flip different. Watch in the stands I thought I heard the official say " the coin has a Chiefs emblem on one side and the NFL logo on the other. If the Chiefs emblem lands the Chiefs choose .... if the NFL emblem lands 49er's choose."

Then over the Ref's mic you hear a 9ers player call heads or tails (could not tell which), and another 9er player say "no ... no ... it is predetermined."

So the visiting no longer gets to choose in the coin flip? Was this a rule change on the coin flip? If so I must have missed it. Or did I totally hear wrong?

If this is true, then I'm going to start a company that makes asymmetrically weighted commemorative coins. Way too easy to skew a predetermined coin.

It was predetermined. I don't know if it was a special occasion or a new rule.

I am by no means a conspiracy person but this thought occurred to me as well.
