Stop meddling!

I can't decide if the proposal to abandon draws in football is more or less stupid than the bonus point system introduced in Rugby League recently. I don't understand where the impression that a draw isn't a valid result comes from and I certainly don't see the appeal of tacking on a shoot-out to a league game just for the sake of it. It's an attempt to fix something that's never even looked like being broken.
On balance, I think it's slightly - only slightly - less stupid than the bonus points in RL as it doesn't go to the length of rewarding teams for losing, but it's still totally pointless.
