Penalties - For Or Against?

Penaltý shoot outs are always decided by which keeper cheats better.
It should be a 45 taking shoot out. More drama as there is those extra seconds to see if the ball dropped over the bar. More skill. Less luck. No cheating. The GAA gave the 45 shoot out a brief run out as if they wanted it to fail.

45 is far harder and there is no real element of chance which isnt a good thing.
There isnt more skill.

How can it be harder but not have more skill?

I'd be for the 'golden score' instead - at the end of normal time, teams play on until one gains a 'two points lead' and wins.
