Huh, you learn something new every day. I never noticed the out of bounds thing in the NFL, but now i'll keep an eye out for it. Still, let's not have this thread devolve into a "when is patch (title update) #2 coming out."

But i can't be the only one noticing that sometimes when a player goes out of bounds, the play clock just keeps on running. I mean this really is ridiculous...I really haven't been paying attention to how often this happens, i just noticed it obviously on this play. Then i noticed on another play where i obviously went out of bounds, the play clock stopped but then started once i selected my next play...Does this happen every single time, and i just haven't been noticing it or what? This is unacceptable, how can something like this be overlooked?
This thread is just another example of why the developers have such trouble listening to the fans. Half the time the fans don't even know the rule that they are complaining about.

You're not going crazy. It wasn't always like that. The clock used to stop every time the ball went out of bounds. They had to change it because of television coverage. Because of all the extra time to put in all the commercials they wanted, (and also because of instant replay challenges) they found that many games were running way too long, and it was an attempt to have most games still finish within three hours.

If you are ever at a game in person you may notice both teams huddled up and ready to go and just standing around waiting for no good reason before the ref finally blows his whistle to start play. In many cases he is simply waiting for television to get back from a set of commercials.

I like the rule because it forces teams that are way behind to manage the clock better knowing that in the fourth quarter the clock won't completely stop when they run out of bounds until the game is under 5 minutes.
