    Scrap the crazy penalties idea

    As you may be aware, the Football League is considering bringing in penalty shootouts to decide the results of drawn matches. Apparently, some of them think it will make things more "exciting".

    If this goes through, it'll kill the game. It would mean mo more hard won points away from home, no more last minute equalisers. It could even lead to teams digging in for the last few minutes of a game and gambling on winning the shootout rather than sending players forward.

    If, like me, you feel this idea needs to be nipped in the bud, then please sign the petition and promote it on any message board or mailing list you belong to. Let's tell the League to keep their draws firmly on!
