Re-Writing The Rules

Introduction

The rules governing sports seem unassailable. The rules are, well, the rules.

That said, this doesn’t mean they are the best rules or the best way to play. Well-meaning rules have unintended consequences. And some rules are just plain bad rules.

This small book suggests some new rules. It offers fans something new to think about, and the opportunity to explore some possibilities and potential outcomes.

These suggestions are not meant as recommendations to the governing bodies of any sport. read more

The Most Useless Time In America
