    What realistic sports rule would you change?

    For me

    NFL - No more last second timeouts before field goals

    MLB - No more shift, make the players stay in their positions.

    I always liked the Arena Football rule that in the last minute you had to make forward progress or the clock stops ( no kneeling).

    NFL pass interference goes to college rules and isn’t spotted where the interference happened.

    NFL- no more unlimited PI. It's a 10 yard illegal contact. No more UC/ Roughing the passer if he's throwing the ball. He's going to get hit, unless it's with malicious intent.

    MLB- no more challenges. The beauty of the game is its imperfections. I would also implement a 14 man game day roster, meaning, you have 8 position players, 1 starter, 1 dh, 1 utility man and 3 relievers max (4 in NL due to pitcher hitting). No more 3 batter min, etc. That will speed things up, trust me...

    NHL- goalie pads and equipment need to be reduced in size

    NBA- hand check rule and illegal defense. Let them play zone and let them defend. Also no more challenges/ replay.

    Foul tip caught is an out whether it is on strike one or on strike 2. It hits the bat and is caught it should be an out.

    a lot of good responses so i am adding:

    i would have computerized strike zones in mlb.

    i would eliminate roughing the passer unless it is a malicious hit and then it is a personal foul.

    i would make the nhl only give a point for ties after the OT, not after the 3rd period.

    You know damn well the sportsbook industry will never let that happen especially now as most books are legal crooks.

    Lots of good ones so far, but the list is endless

    OT in NFL is like college, only start at the 35 yd line - they played 4 quarters already so field position should not be a factor - no ties

    College football down without contact - utterly ridiculous

    College hoops over either 10 or 12 fouls is 2 shots PLUS possession - the fouling at the end of games makes a mockery out of the game

    Less timeouts in all hoops

    If you allow hand fighting in football pass plays, you can't call it on the guy that wins

    Either allow them both hand contact and the winner wins, or call it on both guys

    Clock only stop on dead balls inside last 2:00 of each half.

    Both teams have one timeout per half.

    Pass interference is 15 yards not spot of the foul
    Defensive holding is not an automatic first down
    Offensive holding is 5 yards instead of 10
