GUEST,Dazbo BS: Draws/Ties in US (34) RE: BS: Draws/Ties in US 04 Oct 06


The only motive behind this thread was curiosity. Most team sports that are played in Britain in leagues allow for draws. To me this is a valid result for the reasons mentioned above. Tennis does not allow draws as it is a knock out competition (generally speaking), golf consists of individual competitions that require a winner. Most team sports are generally played in leagues with only 'minor' amounts of knock out competitions.

Is it fair on the teams, fans, broadcasters and the TV viewers to watch, for example, a baseball game that goes into extra innings and finish in the middle of the night just to get a win, especially when the teams may be playing in a different part of the US the following day?
