    I think so....but I want to hear what everyone thought about it. I thought it was a killer idea, just because it was new and exciting (to me, at least). I wish they would bring it back. I mean, com'n, how could you not like that one game with the KCWiz that 16 rounds. That was awesome!

    I don't know. A big gunfight at the end of tied matches sounds interesting and all, but I think it is kind of an endangerment to the fans, and that is why I would leave the stadium when the shootout began. I have a family at home, and I have big plans to go to DeVry and start a new life in the tech industry. I don't want to become a victim of violence. I feel bad for all those early MLS players and their families, plus the innocent bystanders, that had to suffer through the bloodshed and senseless killing, all because of Doug Logan and his failed attempt at the War on Ties.

    I think you should only have a shoot out after a 20 minute sudden death overtime period.

    But then, I hate ties.

    Oops. I answered the poll like it was the thread title question, not the question at the top of the poll. Poor wording.

    So, subtract one from the "hell yes" and add one to the "hell no".

    Its not a matter of being or not being a Purist. Its a matter of, Did or did not the shootout suck? It sucked.

    It's bad enough they are sometimes necessary during a playoff, but during the regular season -- how could anyone even suggest it?

    And is the "I worship world soccer. I'm a Purist" option some kind of snide put-down? Why the distinction among those who may be opposed to the Shootout? "Hell no" is enough. Combine the votes from "Hell no" and "Purist."

    I'm in my second year now. It's great. Long live this Shoot-out.

    Fixed your post to more accurately reflect my position on THAT shoot-out.

    You also enjoy NASCAR - that is telling as well.
