There is no clock in volleyball. Some Track events. What other sports
don't use clocks? How about a goalie in bball or football. Hard to do
though. Scoring would go down. Leave kicking game in football alone that is
part of the game. College bball gets too many timeouts I think. Tv Timeouts
that is. Can't watch it more than 5 minutes at a time without commercials.
Used to not have media timeout before free throw do now though.There is a real mickey mouse mercy rule used in High School games. Idaho used
to have one for 11 man don't anymore but in 8 and 6 man football if a team
is ahead by more than 45 points after halftime game is over. Who invented that
stupid rule. Also in Idaho in basketball if a team is ahead by 30 points in a
regular season game during the 4th quarter running clock is used. Same as some
areas of 8 man football. Who invented those silly rules?
I have to agree with most of these. I'm not sure how you put a time limit
on baseball. Its a nineteenth century game designed for people with way too much
time on their hands. I suppose there could be a rule to allow only 30 seconds
between pitches or something. That's about the only thing I can think of
that might speed things up.
How about just allowing contact in basketball so I don't have to watch 30
minutes of foul shots every game.
Soccer: you don't need to make the goal bigger, just make the field smaller
and make it 7 vs. 7.
Soccer. Make the goal 2 meters wider, and 1 meter taller. Nil/Nil games are so
uninteresting. Maybe allow 5 points for a goal, 1 point for kicking it above
the goal. And dump the red/yellow card thing and implement a penalty box like
Stop the referees in the NBA from giving superstars VIP treatment with their
calling fouls. The game should be decided by how hard you play not how many
underwear endorsements you have.
Get rid of soccer 'flopping'. If a player goes down on the field
holding a leg, head, ankle etc. that the referee stops the game to investigate
and the player isn't unconscious or doesn't have blood gushing or a
bone protruding will either be disqualified from the match or be required to
play the remainder of the game naked
would like to see changes for soccer and hockey nets. That way goalie would need
to stretch more like splits position and longer arms.Leave baseball
I don't agree with you on the baseball change, Mike. Baseball is the only
team sport without a clock which makes it unique - if you ad a timer it beoomes
like every other sport. Besides, players already pay a penalty for slow play -
if a pitcher keeps throwing to first or shaking off signs it puts his defense to
sleep and keeps him from getting in a rhythm.No clock needed in
What about the offsides rule in soccer. Goals would go up if that was not a
