You do realize that the shootout is a rather modern way to resolve ties. You know what they had before the shootout?
They had ties!!!!
If two teams can play for an hour and reach the same results then let those results stand. It is people like you (ok I'm making an assumption but go with it) that don't want equal outcomes that are the problem. Sometimes there isn't a winner and/or a loser (sorry end of rant).
