As every coach and player in the Chatham Cup final stood in nervous excitement during the penalty shootout, Declan Edge sat almost emotionless on a plastic chair near his dugout.

Each penalty elicited some form of response from those around him, but the Western Suburbs coach and Ole Football Academy technical director sat motionless throughout.

Win or lose at that stage, he didn't care. Penalty shootouts aren't his thing. His team hadn't got the job done in 90 minutes of normal time, or 30 minutes of extra time, so it didn't matter to him who won the lottery from 12 yards.

Player: "What bloody game are you watching ref?"

Ref: "The one where you've had three shots and haven't hit the target."

It is not a lottery, you still need skills and mental strength to convert.

I can see where Edge is coming from though. At this level (e.g. amateur) he wants to build a team that has the skills and mentality to win during regulation time.

I am one of the few people in NZ who has NO OPINION whatsoever on Ole - but I totally agree with Edge on this point. 

Even when AS Roma or the AWs win on penalties, I always feel a bit cheated.

its not about paying for the paper, its about having to pay for specific parts of the paper. Its like buying a magazine and then being asked to pay more for a code to access the centre fold.
