Request For: Pro and College Football
Request Title: Opening Kickoff
I'm not sure what is used to determine who receives the opening kickoff, but many teams are using it as part of strategy.
In "Coaching options" allow coaches the opportunity to Receive or Defer to the second half.

Category: New Feature
Status: In Review (last updated Nov 26 12:08:28 2022 )
Priority: Under Discussion

Admin Notes
This would be a fair amount of work to implement, so I'll keep this one on ice until there is a more compelling need to update the football databases. Obviously the change would be for the opening coin toss only.

Coaches Opposed to Change: Harlan Hen

Jeff Blevins (Oct 20 12:43:41 2021 ): This would be a cool option to have.
Pythagoras A (Mar 30 07:15:14 2022 ): I feel like home team just always gets the ball first, possibly including OT. If you chose to defer, would that decision carry over into OT?
Ronnie Butler (Nov 8 20:28:10 2022 ): Definitely a strategy point for me. I'm new so I was curious if I was missing this. Something simple would suit me just to always kick if winning toss, I based my initial set up around this idea.
Gregor Ellis (Oct 13 19:43:35 2023 ): More realism is good.
