Now the teams are playing safe and timid to get the tie to get the point and then try to go for the extra point after getting the first point. I say, get rid of this rule. Second, go further and award zero points for a tie. Only reward teams that win with 2 points so that more teams will have to take more chances and score more goals! So 0 points for loss. 0 points for a tie and 2 points for a win. "
He is right. That is by far the number one move to do. There are many things to try, firstly any rule that will contribute to let the more talented players express their art.
