Modern world plays havoc with age-old livelihood
http://www.camdenadvertiser.com.au/news/world/world/general/modern-world-plays-havoc-with-ageold-livelihood/2042101.aspx?storypage=0

08 Jan, 2011 03:00 AM

Suman is proud of her boob job. It cost about 113,000 rupees ($2500) -
a small fortune for most Indians - but comes with a ''lifetime
guarantee'' and the promise of higher earnings.


Like many Indian transgenders - known locally as hijras - Suman boosts
her income with sex work. Breast-enhancement operations, now easily
available in big city hospitals, are increasingly popular among the
naturally flat-chested hijras.


Suman's investment is paying handsome dividends. ''I'm getting more
clients now and I can charge more than before,'' she says.


For thousands of years, hijras such as Suman have been part of the
subcontinent's complex civilisation. But her implants and her sex work
are indicators of how this unique community is under pressure amid
rapid social and economic change in India.


The blessing, or curse, of a hijra is considered unusually potent
because of their transgender nature. Hijras have traditionally
survived by demanding money from families in return for blessing a
newborn child or newly married couple. They also dance and sing and
tell bawdy jokes at weddings and festivals. They are known for their
aggressive collection tactics, which can include threats to strip
unless they are paid to leave. Many families give them money because
they fear being cursed.


But advocates for hijras say they are being forced into sex work.


''The traditional function that hijras had in earlier times was
singing, dancing and blessings at auspicious occasions, like births
and marriages,'' says Rahul Singh, a community worker and activist who
has been involved with hijra communities for more than a decade.


''But with changing times it has become more and more difficult for
hijras to earn their livelihood through this source of income.''


In big cities, where hijras tend to live, the advent of high-rise
flats and gated neighbourhoods has reduced their opportunities to
collect money.


''People's attitudes have also been changing; they have become much
more indifferent to them,'' says Singh. ''All this has really hurt the
community and they are … opting for sex work and sometimes begging as
well.''


The word hijra implies a journey between genders. ''It comes from the
Arabic word 'hij', meaning a journey that has begun but not ended,''
says Singh. ''They have taken up a journey to leave the masculine form
and become a woman but this cannot be completed because biologically
they can never become a woman.''


Castration has always been a feature of the community. Those preparing
for castration are called akwa hijras. Those who have been castrated
are called nirvan hijras, meaning they have been released from their
male gender.


There is no hard and fast rule that hijras must have their genitals
removed. ''Some of them opt for castration but some don't; it depends
on the individual's choice,'' says Singh. But castration is a big
decision and there can be serious medical complications. ''We are
trying to help hijras who want to undergo castration to completely
understand the possible complications and then let them make their own
decisions,'' says Singh.


Ashok Row Kavi, an expert on India's sexual minorities, says hijras
can fall into at least four ''clinical'' categories. ''There are
transvestites who cross-dress as a fetish; transsexuals who feel they
are in the wrong body; inter-sexed males, and cross-dressing gay
males. If a person from any one of these joins a hijra group then they
are called one.''


There is no official count but it is thought there could be 750,000
hijras.


Despite their frequent public appearances, hijras are fiercely
secretive. Their communities are tight-knit and have a ''highly feudal
and secretive structure'', Kavi says.


It is common for hijra households to refuse entry to strangers. But
after a chance meeting on the streets of Old Delhi, Suman invited the
Herald to visit the house where she lives with nine other young
hijras. They rent space in a gloomy concrete building on the north-
east fringe of India's capital, Delhi. A small factory producing
lipstick cases operates from a room on the roof.


Suman, 24, was wearing a very short black dress, and thick make-up
covered acne scars on her face. Her housemates were adorned with
cosmetics, jewellery and brightly coloured women's clothing. One of
them, Sonia Rai, had blush caked on her face while her upper lip was
sprouting a substantial moustache.


The hijra community is known for its highly structured networks of
''gurus'' (leaders) and ''chelas'' (followers). Kavi says hijra
communities normally resemble a traditional Indian joint family.


Suman is the undisputed leader of her household. Other members address
her by the respectful title ''guruji'' and follow her instructions. In
turn, Suman has an older hijra guru who lives elsewhere.


''This group is like my family now,'' Suman says. ''And I am their
mother. They share their problems with me and I sort them out.''


Suman was born in a poor village near Kolkata, in eastern India. She
says her family cast her out at the age of 10 because of her
effeminate behaviour and she ran away to join a hijra group.


''From the time I was born my family suspected I was transsexual,''
she says. ''One day my mother asked me to leave the family … so I
fled. I felt very bad and I cried all the time. Even now I'm very sad
that my family pushed me away.''


Each member of the household has stories of rejection, vulnerability
and isolation. The youngest member of Suman's household, Ritu, who is
just 16, came from the same village after being cast off by her
family.


Suman visits her family about once a year but is angry about the way
they treated her. ''They should have stood with me rather than
following what society tells them,'' she says.


Superstitions and prejudices about hijras are still strong in rural
India. ''I feel more comfortable in Delhi than in my village,'' says
Suman. ''There is a strong social stigma for transsexuals back
there.''


This kind of prejudice had tragic consequences for Koyal Mollick, a 25-
year-old hijra who lives with Suman. ''My family got rid of me very
early in life but people in my village came to know I was a
transsexual,'' she says. ''My sister was unable to find a husband
because of this stigma and she recently committed suicide.''


Each one of Suman's group claimed to have been born without a penis or
testicles. Koyal Mollick even lifted her dress to prove she had no
genitalia. There was a small hole in her lower abdomen that allowed
her to urinate. ''No one here has any sexual organs,'' says Suman.


India's two biggest religions, Hinduism and Islam, have helped create
a variety of rich hijra cultures and identities across the sub-
continent. In north India the community tends to have Muslim
characteristics. This is attributed to the prominent role eunuchs
played in the Mogul dynasty that ruled much of the subcontinent in the
17th and 18th centuries.


''Hijras had great power in that Muslim administration,'' says Rahul
Singh. ''Most of the hijras in north India embrace Islam, or their
mannerisms are very Islamic. They tend to take up a Muslim identity.''


Many hijras take on Muslim names even if they were born into Hindu
families.


In the Muslim neighbourhood of Mehrali, in south Delhi, there is a
historic Sufi graveyard, Hijron ka Khanqah, where nearly 50 hijras are
buried. Hijras from across the city, and other parts of north India,
gather there to celebrate festivals with singing, dancing, prayer and
feasting.


Many transsexuals in north India now reject the term ''hijra'' and
insist on being called ''kinnar'', a description they say is more
respectful.


In the state of Tamil Nadu, in south India, the predominantly Hindu
transgender community call themselves ''aravanis'' and follow Aravan,
a character in the Hindu epic The Mahabharata who died a heroic death
in battle. At a special festival each year in the town of Koovagam,
aravanis ritually marry Aravan, then mourn his death.


Tamil Nadu has officially recognised its transgender community and
issues ration cards with a special ''third gender'' category. Targeted
social services, including education and counselling, are also
available to the community.


Eunuchs are referred to in the earliest Hindu texts, the Vedas,
written in the second millennium BC. There are well-known transgender
role models in Hindu mythology. Perhaps the most prominent of these is
Shikhandi, who, like Aravan, is a character in The Mahabharata. The
child of King Drupad, Shikhandi had the body of a man but the soul of
a woman. Despite feminine traits, Shikhandi was a respected and
celebrated warrior.


Hijras also identify with Shiva, one of Hinduism's highest gods. A
popular form of Shiva is Ardhanarisvara, who is half-man, half-woman.


However, transsexuals are not always portrayed positively in Hindu
scriptures. One of The Mahabharata's heroes, the warrior Arjuna, was
cursed to live a year as a eunuch after sinning.


Kavi says many Indians still fear that if they touch or interact with
a hijra they might become impotent. Hindus consider it a bad omen if a
hijra exposes herself in front of them.


On a typical day, members of Suman's group get dressed and roam Delhi
neighbourhoods to request money from households that have a newborn
child or are about to host a wedding. Hijras call this ''tolly''.


''It is our due. We are entitled to it, and it is our dignity,'' Suman
says. ''If we do not get our due we are not being respected.'' She
complains that ''impersonators'' often poach business. ''Many come and
imitate us in a bid to earn easy money.''


Suman blames these impostors, whom she describes as ''gays'', not
hijras, for eroding hijras' traditional income and driving them into
sex work. ''Earlier we were recognised and got some prestige but over
the last decade more from our community have got involved in sex work
and our reputation has got worse.


''In the past we were getting good money from families where there was
a birth or a marriage but now we are getting less. This has forced us
into sex work.''


Activists say prejudice towards hijras makes it difficult for them to
get mainstream jobs and many feel sex work is their only alternative.


A household of nine hijras in the Delhi neighbourhood of Shastri Park,
not far from Suman's home, highlights this trend. They have given up
dancing at weddings and collecting money at births and rely
exclusively on sex work. They have also abandoned the traditional
hijra-guru-and-follower household model. Instead they have a female
guardian and landlady they call ''Mommy''. The home - effectively a
brothel - has a series of gloomy rooms for entertaining clients. About
40 used condoms were scattered on the floor.


The nine, all aged in their early 20s, trawl for clients outside the
house and on a nearby street well-known for prostitution. They charge
as little as 200 rupees for sexual services.


The growing number of hijras involved in sex work threatens to further
undermine the community's traditional sources of income. ''The aura
that hijras have comes from a belief in society that they don't have
sex,'' says one expert on hijras . ''That's why people believe they
have special powers to bless and curse and why society seeks their
blessing and gives them money. If it becomes very public that they
have sex, it will hurt their livelihoods.''


Kavi believes hijra customs are slowly vanishing. ''Low- and middle-
class families can't pay them much,'' he says. ''They are getting less
because, whether they like it or not, they are not begging in front of
Mogul monarchs. As India changes they will have to change, otherwise
they are finished.''


HIV poses another threat to hijras. Stigma and discrimination have
driven sexual minorities such as hijras away from mainstream health
services in India, making them more vulnerable to infection. The
closed nature of hijra groups has made effective HIV education very
difficult.


''They can't access government services and government can't access
them, so there is a huge barrier,'' says Kavi, who is an adviser to
the joint United Nations program on HIV and AIDS. ''HIV infection
among hijras is at horrendous levels in some places.''


Local studies in Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai have found HIV rates among
hijras above 40 per cent.


Kavi says those who have been castrated are at ''extreme risk''.
Studies have shown infection rates of up to 70 per cent in this group.
He laments that many senior hijras refuse to face up to the scale of
the problem. ''They never accept the fact, so many of them are
infected.''


The HIV risk is not enough to deter Suman from sex work. Most weekends
she puts on a dress that shows off her new breasts and goes to malls
and dance bars in search of customers. ''My clients are high-society
businessmen, those with white-collar jobs,'' says Suman. ''All night
with me costs 5000 rupees, two hours 2000.''


One of her favourite haunts is Vasant Vihar, an upmarket neighbourhood
in south Delhi popular with diplomats and expatriates.


''Those who can't satisfy with girls, come to us,'' says Suman. ''I
give more feelings to my clients so they pay me more. I'm more intense
than girls. Usually, they want sex in car. Sometime, they take me to a
hotel or a flat.''


Suman hopes to stop sex work in about six years, then ''train and
handle'' her hijras. She even has wedding plans. ''Sometimes clients
fall in love with people like me and they get married. I hope that
happens. I'd like to fall in love with a man and get married.''

  • France Hosts Ministers, Economists Over G20 Reforms
  • UN's Ban Names Panel For Haiti Cholera Probe
  • Comment: Hungary's critics are too quick to judge
________________________________________________________________________________
 
France Hosts Ministers, Economists Over G20 Reforms. "French Prime Minister Francois Fillon opened a high-profile economic forum Thursday, with the country taking over the presidency of the G8 and G20 economic groupings for 2011. 
 
The two-day New World, New Capitalism forum was launched in January, 2009, in response to the global economic recession following Wall Street's meltdown in late 2008. Two symposiums have been held so far. …" [Xinhua/Factiva]
 
AFP writes that "Fillon said on Thursday that 2011 is a make or break year for the G20 forum of top global economies to prove its worth by tackling economic reform or risk being marginalized.
 
French President Nicolas Sarkozy has set as G20 priorities a major overhaul of the global economy's infrastructure, including a reforming the monetary system and ending excessive price swings in commodity markets, as well as improving economic governance. 'The G20 must successfully address the major projects that have been on hold for many years,' Fillon said. …" [Agence France Presse/Factiva]
 
In a separate piece, Xinhua notes that "France wants a reformed international monetary system which is 'more balanced', 'more stable' and 'more transparent', French Economic Minister Christine Lagarde said Thursday at an economic forum hosting many domestic and foreign ministers and economists.
 
'We must move in one of the steps that are constructive and lead us towards a (monetary) system that is more balanced, more stable and more transparent,' Lagarde said …These three principles will 'inspire us to continue what I, myself, identify as three objectives of an improved system,' she said, adding that the three objectives are to 'better protect' emerging and developing countries and to 'better diversify' reserve currencies and 'better coordinate.' …" [Xinhua/Factiva]
 
AP reports that "…Lagarde says France will also focus its G20 presidency this year on the insufficient supply of stable and secure capital reserves, and the lack of an efficient body to coordinate foreign exchange policies. Lagarde says France will lead a joint diagnosis among the developed and emerging nations in the group about ways to make the international monetary system 'more balanced, stable and transparent.' …" [The Associated Press/Factiva]
 
UN's Ban Names Panel For Haiti Cholera Probe. "UN chief Ban Ki-moon named four experts on Thursday from Latin America, the USs and India to investigate the source of Haiti's cholera epidemic, which some Haitians blame on UN peacekeepers. …
 
Ban said on Thursday the panel would be chaired by Alejandro Cravioto, who is Mexican but works at the International Center for Diarrhoeal Disease Research in Bangladesh. The other three members are Claudio Lanata of the Instituto de Investigacion Nutritional in Peru, Daniele Lantagne of Harvard University in the United States, and Balakrish Nair of India's National Institute of Cholera and Enteric Diseases. …" [Reuters/Factiva]
 
AFP notes that "… 'Determining the source of the cholera outbreak is important for both the UN and the people of Haiti,' UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said in a statement released by his spokesman. 'The panel will seek to determine the source of the 2010 cholera outbreak in Haiti. They will review all of the information and data available to date and travel to Haiti to conduct investigations on the ground,' added the statement. …
 
Ban said he worked with the World Health Organization and other international bodies to find experts on leading technical experts in public health, epidemiology, microbiology and water and sanitation for the independent panel. …" [Agence France Presse/Factiva]
 
Xinhua writes that "…The panel members will travel to Haiti and examine data on the outbreak in an independent manner, and present their findings to Ban in a written report. 'The members of the panel have been selected based on their global stature, expertise and extensive experience working with cholera in all its aspects,' the statement said. …" [Xinhua/Factiva]
 
Comment: Hungary's critics are too quick to judge. A commentary by Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orban published in the FT writes: "Hungary assumed on Thursday the presidency of the EU for the first half of 2011, at a difficult time for the continent. Europe's strength has always been its democratic values. We should be clear as we take over the EU leadership that our commitment to these is as strong as ever. …
 
Hungary will not be distracted by this from focusing on the critical issue of our presidency: economic policy. The seemingly simple question over what the optimum balance should be between reducing budget deficit, decreasing debt and increasing employment and growth, generates different answers within Europe, and also in America and Asia. …
 
The final question for Europe is how a high level of sustainable growth can be achieved along with high growth in employment. A low rate of growth is unacceptable, as is economic growth without increased employment. In accordance with the agreement reached in December, a short amendment of the Lisbon treaty and the establishment of the European stability mechanism have to be executed during our presidency.
 
We are also planning important steps to ensure this sort of crisis management will no longer be needed in the future. Europe has to do more for social inclusion, in particular of the Roma. …It is my conviction that beside the obvious matter of human rights, the social inclusion of the Roma has huge economic benefits for the countries in question. So we need a common European strategy on this issue.
 
To continue the process of enlargement is in the EU's interest. Today the key question is if we can conclude accession negotiations with Croatia, in our presidency, once our Croatian friends have made the last steps. Also: will we in the EU acknowledge these efforts without delay?
 
Europe faces tough challenges. I am confident that with a common will, we can face them, because we know that neither Hungary nor any other European country can be strong and successful without a strong and successful Europe. But it is up to each member state to make Europe strong and successful. My presidency's intention is to serve this purpose." [The Financial Times/Factiva]
 
 
Also in this Edition… Briefly Noted… South Africa's school-leaving exam pass rate rose last year after six years of steady decline, even as students weathered the disruption of the football World Cup and a month-long public sector strike. The country's troubled education system, widely ascribed to inefficient administration and government tampering with the national curriculum, has been blamed for a youth unemployment rate of over 50 per cent, while many businesses complain of skills shortages. [The Financial Times/Factiva]
 
Brazil has launched a fresh attempt to limit the appreciation of its currency, as fast-growing economies renew their efforts to restrict damaging inflows of hot money. In a move to curb speculative trading, the central bank announced that domestic banks would have to hold higher reserve requirements against foreign exchange positions. [The Financial Times/Factiva]
 
Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, who made poverty reduction a top priority, will launch a new program to coordinate nationwide anti-poverty actions, officials said on Thursday. Modelled after the Growth Acceleration Program (PAC) launched in 2007 to improve infrastructure projects, the program was aimed at helping the poor overcome financial difficulties and reduce reliance on state welfare funds, Minister for Social Development Tereza Campello told reporters. [Xinhua/Factiva]
 
Washington has unveiled a proposal to allow Mexican truckers to operate on US highways, a move it hopes could end a long-running dispute that has seen the country hit with $2.4 billion in trade sanctions. The draft plan, launched on Thursday by the US Department of Transportation, would create an inspection regime to test Mexican trucking companies and their drivers for safety records, driving qualifications, insurance and vehicle maintenance. [The Financial Times/Factiva]
 
Li Keqiang, China's deputy premier, pledged that his country will enlarge its openness to foreign investment in an attempt to keep western companies committed to China and complete its industrialization by 2020. In a closed-door speech to a select group of German industry chiefs and government officials in Berlin on Thursday night, Li called for Germany and China to deepen their trade and investment ties. [The Financial Times/Factiva]
 
Pakistan's government reversed an unpopular fuel-price increase that contributed to the breakup of the ruling coalition, a move that eases political pressures but could derail an International Monetary Fund-sanctioned economic overhaul. The rollback of the price increase of 9 percent, which had been introduced on January 1, will further widen an already significant budget deficit, making it more difficult for the government to stem inflation, while furthering economic strife. [The Wall Street Journal/Factiva]
 
French President Nicolas Sarkozy is likely to make a provocative suggestion when he visits U.S. President Barack Obama on Monday: Give the dollar a less-prominent role in the world economy. France has the rotating presidency of the G20 industrialized and emerging nations this year, and Sarkozy wants to use the platform to urge a rethinking of the international monetary system, with the aim of reducing the consequences of excessive currency volatility on global growth. [The Wall Street Journal Europe/Factiva]
 
Banks' senior bondholders should share the pain of bank failures to spare taxpayers from bailing them out, the European Commission has proposed. The plans by Michel Barnier, the internal market commissioner, are in stark contrast to bank rescues during the recent financial crisis, when governments contributed hundreds of billions of euros to recapitalise failing institutions, while senior bondholders avoided losses. [The Financial Times/Factiva]
 
Kazakhstan's President,Nursultan Nazarbayev is under pressure from lawmakers to skip elections and instead hold a referendum to extend his 21-year rule over the country. The proposal, that would allow Nazarbayev to retain power until at least 2020, has been condemned by the US as a blow to democracy. [The Financial Times/Factiva]
 
Fresh unrest struck Algeria Thursday as protests over rising costs and unemployment spread after a night of rioting in the capital in which youths attacked a police station and torched shops. Authorities rushed police reinforcements to towns where hundreds of youths took to the streets, a newspaper reported, as neighbouring Tunisia was also struck by more protests in a wave of similar unrest. [Agence France Presse/Factiva]
 
Jordan's economy is likely to grow by 4.25 percent in 2011 after slowing sharply due to the global crisis and its budget deficit should narrow slightly to 5.3 percent of GDP, the International Monetary Fund said. [Reuters/Factiva]
 
The UK's accounting watchdog has risked antagonizing investors by saying that listed companies should be allowed to stop printing hard copies of their annual report and accounts. The Financial Reporting Council has proposed permitting the publication of these key shareholder documents in online format only, arguing that the printed version had been left behind by the explosion in internet-based communication. [The Financial Times/Factiva]
 
Lakes and rivers emit far more of a powerful greenhouse gas than previously thought, counteracting the overall role of nature in soaking up climate-warming gases, a study showed on Thursday. A review of 474 freshwater systems indicated they emitted methane equivalent to 25 percent of all carbon dioxide -- the main greenhouse gas blamed for stoking climate change -- absorbed by the world's land areas every year. [Reuters/Factiva]
 
Researchers have documented yet another health benefit for circumcision, which can protect men against the AIDS virus, saying it can protect their wives and girlfriends from a virus that causes cervical cancer. Wives and girlfriends of circumcised men had a 28 percent lower rate of infection over two years with the human papilloma virus or HPV, which causes warts and cervical cancer, they reported in the Lancet medical journal on Thursday.

I have many of the trolls killfiled, so I haven't noticed a decrease in

Quietly optimistic here.

I think the Jets *can* beat anyone in the playoffs. Last year seemed
an easier route than is presented this year. The Bengals, who we'd
crushed the week before, then the Chargers, 'norv said there ... and
then we came up against the *rested* Colts and Peyton picked us apart

Actually, what I find intriguing is the whole mindset that Rex gave the players... all the
talk about the Super Bowl, etc.
If the players have really bought into it, as they seem to have, then I expect the Jets to
play a great game. The one caveat being the gameplans chosen by the coaches.
For instance, to remain consistent... Will Schott continue the LT folly, or finally give
Shonn (the better rusher at present) the ball? Will Schott be aggressive, or tentative
with his playcalling? Will he have MS on the move? Will he be in *cute* mode?

While on D, will it be blitzin' or coverage, as main focus? Blitzin' from the edge, or up
the middle? Will they try to disguise coverage 'til the very last moment, or show their
hand? Of coourse, there's a middle ground, but Rex seems to go strongly, one way or the
other.

As for the trolls, I wouldn't read too much into anything. Seriously, it's difficult to
get into the *mind* of a troll... I mean, can you really imagine deciding to spend your
valuable time, going into another team's NG, and posting nonsense?
On the other hand, can you see these same *people*, decide to go to a sports bar filled
with opposing fans, and saying the nonsense they post anonymously in a NG?
They're all pussies.

word is that Shonn Greene is starting on Saturday. Read that from a
guy called "scoops" who has inside info and occasionally posts little
advance notices of things before they are announced.

I bet that we see his use similar to last year at the end, i.e.
getting most of the carries. If we can catch the ball is a bigger
concern than who is running it.

They mentioned it in the Bills game and I was surprised to hear that
Taylor only gets about 15 snaps per game. He's bloody productive for
those snaps and I expect to see a lot more of him in the play-offs.

Overtime rules have been changed for the post-season... if a team kicks a FG, the other
team gets one chance to match the score. If they tie it up, then from then on it's
sudden-death.
I like this, although it seemingly gives a bit of an advantage, to the team that doesn't
get the ball initially. Teams that get the ball, will now opt to try to get a TD, rather
than playing for the FG. So, there's a bit of extra pressure, and more of a possibility
of making a mistake.
Should be interesting to see how it plays out.


A look at new overtime rules for playoffs
By Tim Graham
ESPN.com

In case you'd forgotten, NFL owners several months ago instituted new overtime rules that
eliminate the possibility of the game ending on an opening-drive field goal in the
playoffs.

Good. Because that's dull.

But we haven't seen these new rules yet because they weren't adopted for the regular
season. That means this weekend's wild-card playoff games will be the first time we could
see multiple-possession overtimes.

At least one overtime game has transpired in nine of the past 10 postseasons. There were
two last year.

Here's a primer of the new OT rules (NFC West blogger Mike Sando posted the actual
passages from Rule 16, Article 4 of the NFL Rule Book):

* The game does not end if the team that receives the opening kickoff makes a field
goal on its initial possession. But the game is over if the team that receives the opening
kickoff scores a touchdown on its initial possession.
* Each team must have the opportunity to possess the ball -- unless a touchdown is
scored on the opening drive. Note that an "opportunity to possess" would include instances
of onside kicks and fumbled kickoffs or punts.
* If the team that kicks off first ties the game with a field goal on its next
possession, then the game becomes a true sudden-death affair. The next team to score will
win.
* A defensive touchdown on the first possession would end the game automatically.
* There will be no coaching challenges. All video reviews will be initiated by the
replay assistant.

New York Jets coach Rex Ryan foreshadowed his strategy for the revamped overtime process.
There could be strategic advantages to winning the coin flip and playing defense first.

"Obviously, it's an advantage if a team kicks a field goal on you," Ryan said. "If you
have a chance to come back, then you're basically playing four-down football until you can
kick a field goal or score a touchdown. I think that's the advantage for the team that
gets the ball second or if that team scores initially."

Team A wins the toss and takes the ball and kicks a fieldgoal.

Team B gets the ball. Needs to score 3 to extend the game or a TD to
win. So its offense is in 4 down territory from the moment it gets
the ball until it gets into field goal range. Say it gets to 4th and
2 or 3 around the 25 yard line. Coach has a real hard decision to
make. Go for the FG to extend the game? Or go for the first down in
an attempt to extend the drive to get the TD to win the game. Miss
the FG: game over. Go for a first down and get stopped: Game over.

This is just plain stupid.

Eliminate OT in eh regular season.

In the play offs play 2-6 min periods with each team getting the wind
in one period nut no sudden death. If it is tied at teh end of 12
minutes, kick off & play sudden death.

Actually, I think this is bogus. On 4th and 1 you take the points.

The real difference, the one no one is talking about, is if you get the
ball to the 25 yard line (or for better kickers the 30).

With the old rules, you ran the ball to make the kick shorter and on the
hash mark your kicker liked.

Winning coaches (or coaching to win) will no longer just run the ball
cautiously to set up a FG (as will cowardly, play not to lose coaches).
Getting a FG on a first possession will give one's opponent an easier
time: on every series they get all four downs plus the knowledge they
must score a TD. In the hands of a Peyton or Brady or Brees or Vick (I
think everyone gets the idea), scoring first with just a FG may improve
an opponent's chances of beating you.

Winning coaches will be forced to not make such conservative calls when
they get in FG range. They will need to still try to get a TD.

The first and second down calls when the ball moves to within FG range
will be the huge difference that no one is talking about..

I like the first part of your plan. I think the obsession with having a
winner instead of admitting that two teams are just equal is bad for the
American psyche.

I actually think the new rules as written work.

I think that, for the regular season, if a game is tied after
regulation, the two teams should play 7 on 7 for five minutes. If
they're still tied, then they go to penalty field goals. That should
certainly make the game more exciting! Look at how well it's ''worked''
for the NHL!

Yes, I'm being sarcastic. :) Obsessing with making a winner gets you
an idiotic system that makes your entire league look foolish. (Though
obviously you need to have a way to decide a playoff game; the current
system seems fine.)

Anyone know what proportion of NFL regular season and/or playoff games
end regulation tied?

H, I don't and that is all that matters.

:)

My concern is you get the ball, drive the field & take the points &
lose off a TD. It just seems wrong. You are probably at an advantage
by having the other team kick a FG. Every series is a 4 down series
so the defense has to play tighter making your options greater with
pass. Even if you run it you have to get 3, 2, 3 & 2 yards. If you
get 6 on the 1st why pass at all?

This is a HUGE advantage to the Mannings of the world.

i am frequently confused about the intention of the jets defense. in
your typical 34, the interior line guys get mentioned by the
announcers as often as offensive guards. they are just run suffers in
a typical two gap 34. the classic pats defense for the past few years
often shifts from a two gap 34 on first and second to a one gap 43 to
pressure on 3rd down. the jets "rex" 34 is never the same thing.
pouha, devito and ellis make an ideal run stuffing two gap 34 group,
but no way is that a good group to run an attacking or one gap front.
so... when you try to morph or vary the jets defensive set from a two
gap 34 run stuffing line to a pressure 43, they dont have the guys who
can penetrate up the gut. so... rex sends a bunch of guys in a blitz,
and... not one single jet rush lineman or OLB has nearly the juice to
destroy a single blocker. the few times they get to the qb fast is by
a db that was unaccounted for or they luck out with double a gap
pressure. so... here is my question of intention. why keep it up if
you cant run that race with the horses you have in the stable ??? This
is why I keep talking about using a 4(3)-1(2)-6 if they go visit brady
later this month

For us. So is Luck's staying out of the draft (over valuing Gabbert,
Mallett, and Locker), and Norv's continued misrule in SD.

Now if the Jills can just decide they should stick with Gailey and Fitz.

Sprano is a good coach. The fish are one player short of a being a
very good team. They need a qb.

He wants his degree in Architecture... more power to him.
Either way, he's going to do well for himself... so he makes a few million, if he slips on
the grape. The kid has his head on straight.
Also, he probably doesn't want to go to Carolina ;)

Maybe but what happens if he goes 1st pick in the draft and they
strike or lockout? He won't be signed until the CBA is negotiated &
approved. If it drags on he will not get paid. If it is signed & it
has a rookie cap it will be there next year.

The cutoff is Jan 14 so he can change his mind. The NFL also has a
provision to apply after the cut off date. So he may change his mind
next week and be helping Stanford continue to recruit or he may apply
before the draft. I don't think this is over.

He is also sitting in enough life science classes to sit for the
MCATs.

I am expecting this to follow the path that the last great QB from
Stanford took. I will only play here.
