There's been some pushback on the fair play rule on social media. I highly doubt people would be happy if it had gone to drawing lots, though I haven't seen it before so that would've been kinda cool.
About the only other tiebreaker I've seen be mentioned is time leading. Not sure if it was just time spent in the lead or net time that would subtract if you're losing, but after that there's not much that's actually decided on the field to make into a tiebreaker.
Personally I don't mind the fair play. It's better than random chance with lots.
