    20/20 Soccer

    Would love to see it tbh.

    Love how cricket is so adaptable that 3 forms of the sport can be so successful internationally, which I guess it isn't that hard to do when your first incarnation goes for 5 days. Not many other sports are as adaptable. So, was thinking of ways other sports could make themselves more adaptable and appeal to audiences that don't really follow the sport.

    As someone who finds the 'World Game' rather boring I'd love to see soccer adopt a 20/20 format. 20 penalty shoot out each side. Could be rather awesome with a game over in about half an hour.

    I know this is going to upset many of the soccer fans on this forum, but don't care tbh. I know I would pay to see it, as penalty shootouts are the only time I get interested in the sport.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    The best way of making football more exciting would clearly be added-time multi-ball

    Would make it tough picking the correct score in our prediction thread IMO.

    This thread is a joke, surely? Shootouts are one of the biggest problems with football, for mine. They're exciting, but they aren't an accurate measure.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    If they ever want to change things in soccer, the best thing to do is remove the Penalty shoot out's and continue on with extra time and extra time till you get an outright winner.

    Haha @ the reaction here, but totally agree, the less penalty shootouts in soccer the better.

    If a game was to go on for 200-300 or more minutes which it potentially could with continuous extra time, there would be a huge amount of injuries and at the end players would be worse than exhausted. That would be a massive handicap, especially in an international tournament when you have to play a game every 4-5 days.

    Heard a suggestion before about during extra time keep removing one player from each team every 5 minutes till there's a result, would open the game up plenty but also has the potential to go on and on and on.

    The suggestion has been to drop a player off every five or ten minutes until you get a result. Would make for interesting (not necessarily good, I wouldn't know) viewing.
