As the whole of the Televised Football is a Moneymaking racket, I suggest the instead of a Penalty Shoot-out, the two Club Chairman sit either side of a table and the one that offers the biggest bribe gets the points.
Reconfigure the penalty shoot-out so it ALWAYS takes place BEFORE the actual match ... and in the event of a draw after 90 minutes, the team that scored the most pre-match penalties, wins the match and full points.
How about the penalty shoot out first and if there is a draw play non stop until one team has 3 more goals than the other. That way you could get big events like the world cup over in just a couple of days.
Totally non commercial idea but take the mad money out of the game for a few years and get back to a realistic sport. Football (like many other sports) is completely governed by the money, that 90 minute thing on a piece of grass only exists now to justify the monies.
Just Grandstand on a Saturday afternoon and stadiums full. Average wages for players and decent ticket prices. By average wage I mean UK you and me.
Yes I am no fan of football, haven’t watched a game for more than 20 years, never been to a match and never will.
Rant over (tongue in cheek). Aitchbee, you beet me to the shoot out first while I was typing this.
When we were kids playing in the park, we used to go on playing until one team scored. They were the winners. They now call it the Golden Goal. To my mind the fittest team should always win, but of course that will not necessarily happen. Of course there would have to be adjustments for the extra time in case a player had been sent off in normal time etc. But during extra time no subs allowed, no stopping play or changing ends, just carry on until one side scores.
