A Bloody Genius

A former coach in Israel shamelessly steals one of the greatest (and among the only) ideas ever proposed in the august salon known as Eleven Devils: that no points be awarded for 0-0 draws.

Apparently, the Israeli league is in the grip of a savage goal drought. Negative play abounds. So, would a tweak to the league-table system solve this problem? I think it might. However, I also have devised an EVEN MORE RADICAL solution...if anyone cares to hear it...um, hello?
