Why should they be able to throw the ball away when nobody is near by. Just throw it near a receiver.

thanks dudd.

re grounding, they should enforce it strictly. the ball needs to cross the LOS, inbounds.

It's nice to have athletic feats to cheer for in a game instead of the QB being allowed to whistle the play dead anytime the other team looks like they might be able to achieve something.

Do you think if a pass is incomplete they should lose yardage?

if they throw it in less than 2.5 seconds, it pretty much is

Football refs should have a limited number of flags between them. Really think I'm onto something with this one.

Then wouldn't the players/coaches know when they are at the limit and be able to do whatever they want? I agree though that the number of flags is really aggravating

Yep.

Strategy.

Edit: If refs are going to be the third team on the field, at least make them think about it. Imagine the game day threads.

"LOL! Nice last flag dumbass. Way to waste it on block in the back."

Re: Post a rule change that you think would improve a sport

Good news: It looks like the MLB will use a pitch clock starting next year

Bad news: It's 20 seconds per pitch, and the average pitch time last year was 22 seconds per pitch. A mere 2 seconds saved per pitch.

What is the median pitch time and how many pitches per game are thrown after 20 seconds? Also 2 seconds per pitch seems valuable when almost 300 pitches are thrown in a game. That's shaving 10 minutes off the average game time if the average goes to right around 20 seconds.

They should eliminate refs for the NBA all star game and let the players call their own. Will lead to hilarity and as a bonus will cut down greatly on Carmelo Anthony talking.

Who is the ******* pitcher that takes like 45 seconds between pitches? John Lackey?

Re: Post a rule change that you think would improve a sport

What makes baseball take so long is the incessant pitching changes from the seventh inning on. I think there should be some sort of penalty for changing pitchers in the middle of an inning, that's what holds up the game.

There are dickhead batters, like Marwin Gonzalez, who literally step out and readjust their gloves between every pitch.

The first game on Championship Sunday should be at 1 PM like the regular season games. None of this 3 PM bull****.

It is at 1:00 for people who live in the proper sports time zone.

NFL

If the independent doctor rules a player out, the player that received the penalty for the hit is also out for the rest of the game once the injured player is ruled out

Yea, the National Anthem is so full of **** today. Gov. shut down, troops overseas can't watch the game, and they have a token black guy singing. The Trumpkins love it but it's not fooling anyone else.
