i must be bored of "normal" football because i keep wanting to see all these crazy rules changes. here's the latest:
stop putting the ball between the hashmarks. i say, when a play is over, the ball stays put. unless you go out of bounds, in which case it goes on the nearest hashmark.
this way, if the ball carrier is tackled near the sideline, the teams would line up lopsided and we'd see all kinds of plays that either take advantage of the huge expanse on side one (return of the option?), or tricky, precision plays that go down the sideline.
it would also be interesting to watch a team trying to run out the clock, having to be wary of straying too close to the sideline.
so i want to see that, and of course giant footballs.
