re: If you were pro sports czar for a day...


-eliminate salary caps and floors. Maybe not minimum salary, but minimum team salary, max team salary, and max player salary/contract all go


-revamp MLB playoffs. 4 teams from each league. No divisions, strictly goes by best record. More doubleheaders. All-Star game no longer decides WS home field.

-Shift MLS schedule more in line with the rest of the world

-Goes against the rules but, old bats back to college baseball.

-agreed with Baloo, expand the NBA court.

-make some sort of reform on NFL rules pertaining to DB and WR contact. Something to balance out the passing game.

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


Too easy to be exploited. If you pull the pitcher for any reason before the two faced batters the next batter automatically is walked

Switch NBA mascots with Utah.

Get rid of the NFL's stupid assed pass interference rules.

Not big on the rule to begin with because it would be exploited. Even with this change I don't like it. It would cut back on exploits but penalize legit injuries. Its just one of those things that sucks but would require too much extra BS to do away with.

If a pitcher only faces one batter, he must be placed on the 15 day DL.

There's probably several things I'd do, but this would top my list.

The NFL is pretty good as is, but I would give consideration to moving MNF back to ABC.


That's a lateral move considering ABC & ESPN are both owned by Disney.


I would:
Fire Roger Goddell and allow safetys to play safety.
Change NFL overtime to the same format as CFB, but require that they start at the 50 yard line.
Give college baseball more tv time on the big networks.
Require ND to join a conference for football.
Reinstate SP.
If you committed a NCAA infraction, no bolting for the pros. 3 year ban from the sport (I'm looking at you, Pete Carroll).

Upon further thought.

MLB- DH rule gone. Shorten season to where it ends on Labor Day and the top four teams from each league play in the playoffs. No division winners.

NBA- shorten the season. Start on Christmas Day.

NFL- get rid of divisions. Top 6 teams from each conference play in the playoffs.

NFL- do away with the new pussified pass interference rules, punters can be flagged/fined for flopping

NBA- must be three years removed from high school (see what i did here? improves NBA AND CBB), shorten season to begin on Christmas every year

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.

I like this, but make it 18 yards and extend the line at the top of the box across the entire field.

-I would disbanded the MLB.
-End the NHL lockout and ban Bettman from anything relating to hockey.
-Professional athletes can compete in the Olympics with no age restrictions.
-Qatar and Russia lose the right to host the World Cup. One will be given to the USA, the other to England. I would allow England to co-host with Wales, Ireland, and Scotland.
-MLS will convert to the international schedule. if that means they can't play in Canada in the winter, then so be it.
-I would put 2 MLS teams in the southeast. Possible locations: Atlanta, Nashville, New Orleans, Birmingham, Charlotte, and Raleigh.
-Create a farm system similar to MLB or NHL for the NFL.
-No more one and dones in CBB. Either enter out of high school, or stay in college for 3 years.

Why and why?

I'd do away with all guaranteed contracts in all sports. There is no profession in the country where an employee is guaranteed a job beyond at the most one yr. Most are earn your pay jobs. Forget the "risk factor". Most professional athletes work less than one full yr & earn in one yr what they'd never earn anywhere else in several. Shut down the womens' basketball league would be my only other mandate.

Steal the Thunder back from Clay Bennett and put them back as the Seattle Supersonics.

1) I really just don't like baseball and it's all the sports networks talk about all summer. I also like to see real top 10 plays, pick any day in July and the top 10 will have 5 diving catches. They aren't THAT great.

2) I think both World Cups will be major failures. Russia's transportation is horrible and Qatar is not going to fulfil their promises.

ETA: I'm 100% convinced that both countries paid for votes. USA finished second in the voting to Qatar so I will give us that one. I think England was in the running for Russia's.

Instead of MLB celebrating Jackie Robinson every other year to attract more black fans I'd celebrate Minnie Minoso Year.

Notice the cross handed grip.

12' rims in basketball.

Hockey to be played by 3 teams simultaneously -- 3 nets in a triangle at the center of a roughly Wankel rotor-shaped rink.

Lou Holtz and Dick Vitale go into the Thunderdome. (then the doors are welded shut and everybody leaves)

World Cup skiing covered the same way the Europeans do it -- all the racers, good announcers.
