It would be interesting to see the stats on what percentage of 'Receiving teams' in OT won.  My guess (and it's an educated guess only) is that there is an advantage to winning the coin toss.  

 

I didn't say there wasn't an advantage.  There clearly is, otherwise some people would pick going on defence if they win the toss.  That is 100% of the time choice to go on offence.

I just don't like people portraying it as both teams not getting a "chance" to have the ball.  They do.  Stop the other team on defense and you get the ball and the advantage flips to you.  It's even better that you are able to win with a FG, not a TD.  The CFL/College rules are a little too gimmicky for me, even if they are exciting.
