What changes in any particular sport in your opinion would make it more exciting and interesting for the viewing T.V. public?

Get rid of the instigator rule in hockey. It's completely destroyed the credibility of the game.

Along with the shootouts and goalie play area.

i think they should shorten the MLB season to a 100 games and add some sort of coaches challenge or reply system and you might say itll make the game longer which is part of the problem and this wud oly make it worse but if the coaches could actualy challenge a play then that would eliminate the 10 minute yelling matches.

Also, what's funny is that people say baseball takes too long.....I bet your average NFL game telecast is longer than you average MLB telecast.

I'd like to see international soccer re-adopt the Golden Goal. I personally thought it was most exciting with the golden goal rather than the pre-determined time added on (30 minutes with 15 minute halves).

I'll have to agree with the American football starting and stopping...but then again, I'd probably still rather watch it than baseball. There should be a time limit on baseball games. Those go on forever!
