Football: A Modest Proposal

It's World Cup time, so it's time for the next edition of CIP's ideas for fixing soccer.  (Actually the games I've seen have been very exciting).

1)Keep the damn time on the scoreboard clock.  I mean really.

2)Replace the ridiculous penalty shot shootouts with a seven on seven overtime.

3)Get rid of penalty shots altogether.  Replace with hockey style time in the penalty box.

4)Experiment with replacing the throw in with a kick in.  (Pele's suggestion).

5)Replace the stupid group and knockout system with a seven round Swiss System tournament. This could eliminate the need to play off ties.  Each team plays seven games and winner has highest score after seven rounds.
