What good comes from a tie? NONE!


Recommended Posts

I'm not a huge soccer fan. I enjoy the World Cup every four years and like watching the U.S. men's (and occasionally women's) team play. But I know for a fact I will never be a huge soccer fan as long as there are ties in games. A tie at the end of a competition completely diminishes the point of the competition. The point of a competition is to declare a winner of the game or match... A tie negates that and simply provides entertainment in the form of people running around the field kicking a ball (I'm talking about soccer specifically) for over an hour. If I wanted to see that I'd go watch them practice.

 

A tie also takes away from all the efforts of everyone involved. From the coaches and players to the media that covered the game. Everyone is putting in effort into the competition, yet at the end of the game we are at the same place we always were as far as who is better or worse.

 

My solution? At the end of regulation, add a 10 minute overtime. If there is still a tie after that, then do a shoot-out until someone wins.

 

And if a team wins in regulation, they are awarded 2 points in the standings. If they win in any form of overtime then the winning team receives 1 point.

 

Enough with this tie nonsense soccer, or should I say futbol. It's lame and boring.
