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

That and how do you qualify what a kneel down is? They could just hand it off to a RB and let him fall down.

Apply Rooney rule to require teams to have one white cornerback on their roster.

I don't think they need to get rid of it, but if they wanted to they could put in a rule that unless the ball breaks the plane of the LOS the clock will stop.

I like the option of just saying to the ref "game over" instead of kneeling it a few times.

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

what would the penalty be if you miscalculate when you call game over?

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

NFL:

1) allow 2pt conversion fumbles/interceptions to be returned for 2 by the defense
2) if u are backed up at ur own 1yd line, you can basically be called for an infinite amount of false starts and a few other penalties without consequence. punish this by moving the 1st down marker 5 yds further from the original one.

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

also re: the nfl

put some meaning into the pro bowl game. it's easily the worst all star game in any sport due to the lack of effort by the players and the limited formations u can run.

looking for someone to branch off of this with ideas for incentives. i.e. whichever conference wins, each team in that conference gets 2m extra added to their salary cap or whatever.

Move the basketball hoop up 3 feet, compensate by moving the three point line 3 feet forward.

Also, goals aren't scored enough in hockey and soccer, make the goals bigger in both of these sports.

This could be achieved by having the refs add "injury time" to end of games. Only the refs would know how much time is left, thus teams would have to play to the very end.

What I'm saying is that the guys needing to cut weight via aggressive dehydration/other methods should be fighting up a the next class.

You could make it so that one month prior to the a fight, both fighters must weigh in once a week and be no more than 5 lbs over the limit.

So you'd basically have guys cutting weight 4 times within the month leading up to a fight. The current system, as imperfect as it is, is the best.

removing fighting to the extent they have via the instigator rule has probably caused more injuries and serious incidents than it has prevented. you know, save for all the goons that have punched themselves out of the game... (but that's their choice, amirite?)
oh garbage. pure pure garbage. 72off, why must you do this? do i have to go get a bunch of youtubes from when the instigator was around to show us all how much safer the game was?

i think fighting has its place, but the logic above just makes me facepalm really hard. this is like tsn comments level posting.

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

soccer needs harsher penalties for diving, i'm sure that's been said already

i don't think all the talk about replay/goal line ref/ added technology is feasible because fifa needs all nations to be able to do it

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

apparently in college football (not sure if this applies to the NFL as well) if you muff a punt (as the punter) and kick the ball backwards out of the endzone it is only a safety if the ball is already in the endzone. if the ball is not in the endzone then the defense gets the ball where it was kicked. that seems dumb to me.

fine... let's just remove the weight classes altogether LOL

You all know where I am coming from and the current system is not the "best". It can and should be improved.

In the NHL, goalie interference calls are getting out hand. The offensive guy gets checked into the goalie and HE gets a penalty? I know this should not be called in this instance as per the rule, but it is often called this way. I think the refs should be allowed to review the replay for certain types of penalties (e.g. goalie interference, delay of game (specifically; puck over the glass in your zone and possibly for defenders covering the puck w/ their hand in the crease), anything resulting in a game misconduct, etc.)

should have cost unc the game against fsu but lol kickers

the rule is that its a penalty anywhere to illegally kick the ball, and obv a penalty in the end zone is a safety. its not the act of kicking the ball from there or not in itself.

to create discussion, i guess. seemed like the kind of thread this is...

Quote:

i wouldn't say it was safer, but it was different. people didn't get out of line as much, which meant there very few Matt Cooke/Jarkko Ruutu/Sean Avery types because they just wouldn't survive if they had to back up their BS. goons fought goons for the most part (unless someone got out of line), and there seemed to be a M.A.D. agreement that sissy star players were left alone to do their thing, for the most part.

break it down then. i intentionally went overboard to get a reaction, but i definitely think there's some truth in it.

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

god i just don't buy this at all. people got out of line all the time, it's hockey.

it's impossible to break it down without anecdotal evidence but there absolutely were players who were constantly causing trouble - guys like ciccarelli and verbeek. yes, these players had to back it up with fights, but it doesn't mean that all of the dirty play just went away.

Since Lesnar and Fedor will probably never fight in a cage--have them both learn how to skate, then join the NHL.

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

If you're in the top level of NCAA football nad go undefeated you get a chance at theh title. So if 2 teams finished undefeated then those 2 play for it all. If 3 finishes undefeated they play #2 and the top team with 1 loss plays number 4. Then the 2 winners play. If 5 finish undefeated the world actually ends.

I Googled teams win/loss from the last 20 years and coudn't find anything. But I wonder if 5 teams finished undefeated. Then there would have to be 8 teams in a playoff. But has that ever happened?
