What would you do?

I'd return the Oilers name, logo and colors to Houston

I'd move the Falcons to Los Angeles.

I'd move the Hawks to St. Louis.

I'd move the Braves to Montreal.

I'd move the Thrashers to Winnipeg... oh wait.

I would ban the name 'Pelicans' from use in the NBA.

I said pro sports but this should be done. My girlfriend is fairly feminist and even she thinks it's stupid that football is counted.

Love how you unintentionally admitted that Alabama specifically and college football in general are essentially pro sports...

I'd take it a step farther and do away with Title IX. frick that shite.

Murder Gary Bettman and return hockey.

But actual rule changes for each sport...

FOOTBALL
Allow defensive backs to make contact before the ball is thrown again. Go back to 1970s rules in the passing game, essentially.

BASKETBALL
Widen and lengthen the court. Owners will howl from lost ticket sales, but the players are so much bigger and there is no space. Make the court bigger to allow for more creativity on the court.

SOCCER
Eliminate offside when the ball is with 20 yards of the goal. Force defenders to actually play defense instead of just stepping forward. It's exploiting a hole in the rulebook, and it rewards not playing soccer.

BASEBALL
Any reliever that comes in to the game must face at least two batters before he can be removed, unless he is injured.

HOCKEY
Actually enforce interference. The neutral zone trap is illegal. As that's not really a rule change, I'd also add no touch icing.

I'd sell Jerry Jones every other NFL team except the Falcons.

He'd have to be active GM and control all day to day activities for all teams in his contract though

1. Fire Roger Goodell and Gary Bettman

2. Go back to pre pussy hitting rules in both sports

3. Shrink the NHL to 24 teams, contracting all the deadweight, and moving some to Canada

4. Create 1 sanctioning body in Boxing

5. Take away the HOF vote of anyone who doesn't have Barry Bonds first on their ballot.

Football: The NFL is pretty good as is, but I would give consideration to moving MNF back to ABC. I would keep the regular season schedule, but I'd cut the pre-season from four games to two. I would encourage coaches to wear suits on the sidelines.

NBA: I'd give the "Jazz" name back to New Orleans and the "Hornets" name back to Charlotte. Lakers also need to find a new name. I would shorten the season, reduce the number of teams in the playoffs, and shorten the length of the first round or two of playoffs. Seriously, the NBA season and post-season are ridiculously bloated.

MLB: Shorten the season. The World Series must end before Halloween. I'd abolish the DH. I would do something to speed up the game (maybe introduce a pitch clock). I like the idea about making all pitchers face a batter unless they are injured. Any new stadiums must be serviced by public transportation for approval.


NHL: No idea, I'd need to do some studying.

NFL - Overturn that Green Bay / Seattle debacle.

MLB - Give Armando Galarraga is perfect game

NBA - Flopping would result in suspensions.

NHL - Dismantle the league

Simple. I would permaban Joe Buck from entering any amateur or pro sports stadium or arena for life and also every studio that has broadcast rights to televised or radio games.
