    I agree that teams should get the right to reply, but that would require tinkering with the kick off structure.
    I just reckon get rid of it and have draws, non-golden point extra time for finals.

    How many of these threads will pop up every time a game goes to golden point

    There is nothing wrong with draws. It just brings the field goal shootout into normal time though.

    So many crybabies want golden point scrapped

    It needs to stay for the people in attendance

    I noticed the lack of urgency in the last minute of the game yesterday. The players were obviously thinking that it’s all sweet, we’re going to golden point

    Agreed I don’t get why we need GP in the first place.

    Golden point is so great it allows opposition fans to laugh at who loses as a TV spectator

    GP, you win some you lose some, whatevs.

    I would change the points though. Every game has 4 points. 4-0 for a win in normal time. 3-1for a win in extra time. 2-2 for a draw after extra time.

    I'd rather get rid of GP. But if it stays I like your points structure.

    I agree with just changing the point structure.

    1 point for the losing team in GP would work and yes I realise that means some games have 3 points handed out but I don't see an issue with that, the winner still gets a maximum of 2 points.

    I prefer having 4 points on offer for every game. 1 point for a loss in GP, gives 3 points for the winner. 4 in total.

    Have not changed my view.

    Golden try.

    Any infringment, cannot kick for goal and immediate sin bin.

    Currentl Golden point becomes a kicking game in a game based on running.

    Dont be like Union it ain't cool.

    I accept draws, but a GF needs a result.

    For finals matches, same as now. 5 minutes each way, and keep playing until there is a score.

    I would sooner have draws in regular games.

    You can't have different points for different games. It would get rorted.

    So the same kickfest saved only for Finals.

    Bandaid solution.

    You could always ban the field goal, but I can't imagine them doing that.

    And hence here we are complaining what a shyte end to a league game it is.

    Very sadly,

    1 Point.

    Changing the points does nothing to the kickfest, just makes it a bit more palatable for the team who has drawn in normal time. Although, if a team already has a point for the draw you may find they are willing to try their hand at more flashy play in extra time if they aren’t going home empty handed.
