RE: Rules Changes Could Send Two Sports in Different Directions
It will be interesting to follow the football changes in the coming years. While I'm not stoked about the prospects of kick offs being eliminated, I would respect the decision if it came to that. I would hope that NFL leaders would keep coming together to keep trying to figure it out without eliminating kick offs.
As far as baseball goes, I'm not a fan of that idea either in extra innings. As a fan, I actually really enjoy going to games and never really notice the length of the games. I really think it falls more on it being quite boring to watch on TV with all the constant commercials because of pitching changes, etc. I hope they will explore other avenues before sticking with the runner on second model.
