BFTB After Dark: April 8, 2014

Michael Dodge

"After Dark" is BFTB's nightly open thread for the community to talk about everything and anything.

Supposedly, MLB owners are quietly talking about shortening their games to just 7 innings. Everyone is really, really angry about this. I'm trying to think of what a comparable change could be to the NFL.

Sure, 18 game schedules would throw everything out of whack, but someone who hadn't watched a game in a few years could still turn on a random game and have everything mostly be the same.

I got it! What if they banished Field Goals altogether? Kickers are gone, and the only way to score it with a touchdown! Gosh, that'd be so boring. Don't do it, NFL!

(This is how rumors get started)
