I have had this idea recently:
If tied after the 30 minutes, Each team will take turns taking corner kicks. A possession is over when A) the team taking a penalty kick scores B) the opposing team clears the ball past midfield.

Of course off of that idea you can adjust it (taking people off the field so it's not so crowded, etc).

If team A scores, team B gets a chance if they haven't gone already. But after the first round if no one has scored, then it becomes a golden goal scenario.

Sounds like college football.....god no.

I've thought the best way to deal with ties are to have a secondary scoring method, Corner kicks or shots on goal, over the course of the 90 minutes. Then play the 30 minute extra time with one team knowing they need a goal to win. If nothing else it would force one team to attack for 30 minutes, providing some very exciting football to end these games. Admittedly not perfect, but the best solution IMO.

The only way I'd like to see them change it is to take a page from NHL. After the first two 15 min extra time halves each team goes down to 10 men and they play sudden death. Every 15 minutes each team takes off a player until you get down to 7v7 (including initial 30 min a.e.t thats 90 minutes of overtimes). If there still hasnt been a goal at that time take away the goalies.

Heck no on that. So the game is being decided by a random stat? Just like the article, I think that is bad idea. Stats are so arbitrary.

I don't want to have shootouts, for the record (I prefer a system akin to what MSantoine proposes), but putting that aside for a second and assuming they stay: It bothered me during the 2011 women's final when Japan had a player sent off right at the end for a professional foul, that there was no impact on the shootout that almost immediately followed. Granted we were poor in that shootout anyway, but I couldn't help think it would have been fair if the player who was red carded was automatically then made the first shootout participant, and was marked down as a miss. In the end, all Japan had to do was survive the free kick and go to penalties, so committing a red card offense was the smart thing to do.

Except I don't favor removing keepers (missed that part)! Have it be no less than 8 on 8 with keepers.
