" @Milkman: The player's union would probably get testy over it. This year isn't the right year to potentially add extra plays to games. "They should just be real men and institute a draw for full time games ending in a tie. If you can't win on time you don't deserve to win. NFL games are already too long as it is otherwise I'd say they should adopt the NCAA rules, which at least have the advantage of being fair.

To watch a soccer team reach a draw from being three goals down is one of the most tense sports events we have. Of course, we also have cricket matches that last five days (!) and often end in a draw - but any sport that stops for afternoon tea is a little eccentric.
