I dont like golden point, but I am for extra time. It creates a buzz around the ground that you dont normaly get as everyone can sense that some are injured whilst others pick them selves up and keep trucking. E.T is exciting and is a litmus test...G.P diminshes this somewhat

Meh I like it..
But if they were to can it , they should switch to something like rugby's extra Time for semi finals ..
Two ten minute halves. Who ever is winning after that wins .. Semi finals are two big to be decided on a flukey field goal

whats the point of extra time in a regular season game anyway? you play to win for 80 mins. it would still be a field goal thing anyway with extra time

Simple, everyone wants a result.

At the end of regulation, both sides score a point.
They then play for 10 more minutes and whoever is ahead at fulltime gains an extra point. They will play for tries and field goals will come right at the death.

Hate it, hated it at the beginning of the year, hated it last year, hated in as soon as they introduced it. Just a dumb idea to have it for the regular season.

I have always hated Golden Point, but would've been pretty happy if we won last night...

The fact is we blew it. I don't think any team in the history of Golden Point has been gifted 3 sets in a row and not won!

I was thinking the same thing. We had our chances in Golden Point and blew it

I think from memory they said our record in GP is 3 and 8? You think we would know how to play it after so many cracks

Never liked golden point, can't stand in fact. If I was in charge it would be gone by lunch time. I don't mind extra time where if the the scores are still locked then it's a draw. Nothing wrong with a draw in regular season.

Both teams should be rewarded after a game like that. But what is totally wrong is that there will be a team this week that gives up and gets flogged and they will get the same reward as our blokes........that is simply wrong.
I'm not a complete idiot.............there are some pieces missing!

Exactly Farrah had a perfect opportunity but blew it. I don't like golden point. They should play 2x 5 min halves and then we either get a winner or a draw. In the finals they should just keep playing until there is a winner

I've always thought there should be three points for a regular win, two for a golden point win and one for golden point loss.

Some consideration for others would be nice, its not all about you. I'm really starting to believe that you are just a troll along the lines of a Bug or Damo. Nobody and i mean NOBODY could be this bitter and angry at the world when things don't go their way. I can't believe i'm saying this cos i've never said it before but there are other things to life you know. Its a nice sunny day today why don't you take a walk in the park or something and try and enjoying life for a change

no golden point this year.
wests-tigers would be sitting on same points.

its time for it to go.
not just because wests-tigers suck at it.
a good game like last night, each team deserved some reward.

Would have loved the draw. There is so much wrong with golden point.
But loved our effort and that we're the only team to truly rattle the dogs (credit to broncos to having them at half time)

Wont happen people start kicking field goals anyway with 10 mins to go with the score leveld now
