Penalty shootouts would be interesting in AFL. First player to kick a behind loses.

Sure, he would love his team to play extra minutes going into a big game the following week. What if extra time happened to them going into ANZAC eve off a four or five days break. The draw is part of sport. It works in NRL because golden point almost turns it into footy with pot shot for goal.
Hard pass.

Always hated the draw. It's not like soccer where a draw is a common result. There are only a couple each season, if there were like 10 draws a season I'd say keep the draw.

Don't see the problem with extra time. If they can do it in the finals why not the regular season?

Keep it, a draw’s a valid result. They just need to play this at the end of each one:

Say Carlton don't beat Brisbane by 6 points in round 21, 2008, and instead draw. Play 10 minutes extra time. Fev kicks 4 in extra time. Extra 10 minutes during 2008 and Fev kicks 4 and wins the coleman? that fair he got to play an extra 10 minutes?

Just bring in overtime. It works well in the major American leagues and the AFL is becoming more and more American as the years go on. The added drama of an overtime game will increase TV audiences as well which is exactly what the AFL and the broadcasters want.

Can you imagine Whately and Co agreeing to that? They want a shorter game as it is.

Goodwin's wrong. A draw is a ''result'' and one that keeps Melbourne on top of the ladder - as disappointing as it was.

Australian Rules Football doesn't have to copy other codes.
