Ahhh ... hockey style!!  Would be worth a try.

 

Gotta be honest, though, when those NHL playoff games go into the 5th or 6th overtime I usually start rooting for somebody NOT to score so the game will just keep on going. :beer:

The problem with the game's extra-time rules are that the risk of giving up a goal far exceeds the reward of potentially breaking the tie without going to penalties. Here's a (probably) needlessly complicated proposal: One Goal or Two. The first half of extra time is played as normal; the score at the break dictates the endgame scenario going forward.

 

  • If a team has a two-goal advantage after 15 minutes, the match is over (a modification of the short-lived silver goal rule UEFA introduced in the early 2000s).
  • If there is a tie after 15 minutes, the match ends immediately upon the next goal scored (the golden goal rule implemented by FIFA from 1992-2004).
  • If a team has a one-goal advantage after 15 minutes, the match may end after the second half of extra time if no more goals are scored (the standard extra time rules), or immediately upon a second goal by the leading team (a modification of the golden goal rule). If the trailing team scores a tying goal in the second half of extra time, the golden goal rule applies thereafter.
  • If the score remains tied at the end of extra time, the winner is decided by a penalty shootout.

I like the current format. The risk/reward issue makes the game so tense.

I think that in the case of ties they should play six-on-six or even five-on-five for as much time as it takes to score a golden goal.

 

Kind of like hockey's regular season overtime period (before they resort to the stupid shootout).

Sweaty guys hydrating vs. another look at Adriana Lima in a mini dress ... Seems like a no-brainer to me. ;)

Even our commercial station (which is carrying this game) wouldn't do that, as much as any advertisers would be commiting commercial suicide for running during a match.

 

I do wonder even more what they're thinking with one eye on Qatar though

 

Mind you this is FIFA, who are no better than the archetypal banana republic. When their senior vice president (an Argentine) explained that he voted for Qatar ahead of the US, because a vote for the US would be like a vote for England, and he couldn't do that until we gave them the Falklands islands back, you realise what you're up against with this terminally corrupt fiefdom

 

I woluldn't be averse to UEFA (who are hardly squeaky clean, but compared to FIFA a paragon of virtue) breaking away

It was very fishy when Qatar won the bid in my opinion.. Then again I think we both agree that the process is so upside down that there is significant doubt of a "clean process" no matter who wins.. I mean come on, even the States winning a bid for the cup was strange for a country at the time that basically had nothing to do with soccer.. The only thing that was there was some sort of interest in getting into the potential commercial market called the US..

Same exact thing with Qatar in my opinion.. I'm not sure if you guys realize, but as bad as the Arabs are in soccer compare to Europe and South America they breath, eat and drink soccer.. They don't really know or care for any other sports.. I lived in the ME when I was younger and until in moved to mass I didn't even know there were other sports in the world.. Strange but true.. Where am I going with this, well the revenue that will be generated by having the WC in the ME and the possible future bank roll was enough to get a vote for Qatar.. Was there bribery envolved? I would say yes, can I prove it.. Don't care to!
