I don't think the rule change is a huge deal. I would've been upset if they had done something like the college rule, which IMO changes the game too much. But this just adds a possession if the first score is a FG. If nothing else, I'm glad they changed it before a Super Bowl ended in sudden death---not because I think the old rule was unfair, really, but just because the moaning and whining and hand-wringing that would have happened afterward would've been too much to take.
