I assume none of you will be watching any up-tempo teams or games on Thursday. Because, quite frankly, EVERY player talks about the damage to their bodies on Thursday games(not enough time to heal). And up-tempo teams might run 80-90 plays as opposed to the 60-65 that other teams do. Those up-tempo guys force teams/players to play an extra quarter/half.
Wow, that's quite a leap - did I say anywhere that I wouldn't watch games if they played OT indefinitely? I don't consider it some great evil, I just think it's not needed during the regular season.
Thursday night games are almost invariably poorly played due to lack of prep and lack of physical recovery. I don't think we should be gunning for more of that.
