ABSTRACT
In every AFL season, there are usually one or two round matches that end in a draw. This situation is handled in finals matches by playing extra time. Whilst the scoring systems used in finals matches could be applied to round matches to eliminate draws, we devise new alternative systems that have better statistical properties by increasing the probability for the stronger team to win, increasing fairness and spectator interest, and reducing the likelihood of long matches occurring. Further, these new scoring systems could also be used in finals matches.
