Good evening Gibbsy and Russell,
After the drawn AFL match on Sunday, Tim Watson on Channel Seven was arguing the point for golden point extra time, but I can't really understand why. I like the idea of having a draw and in the case of Sunday's match I think it was a fitting outcome. The Bulldogs clawed their way back into that match a couple times, and at the end Richmond just couldn't get ahead again.
I really think that Golden point is a cheap and nasty way to end a match for the sake of having a winner. I much prefer the draw, or in cases where a result is needed such as a final, a fixed period of extra time followed by a penalty shootout if the scores are still deadlocked.
