Even the traditional to last minute, game-snatching DG (or extra-time, cup snatching) has become less attractive. So many penalties can be 'won'/milked from breakdowns (or even open play) and with the referees' bias towards the team in possession another phase becomes more attractive. Additionally the line-out from penalty option after the clock is red has reduced the haste which last minute scoring opportunities once created.
