    Yesterday's ump behind the plate in the Yankees-Nationals game has me considering instant replay now. That guy was the worst I've seen in years, and cost the Nats the game.

    1. I'd love to see an elimination of offsides. If a team wants to cherry pick, let em.
    2. Two line passes. Enough said.
    3. The instigator rule, let em throw.
    They eliminated the two line pass, the center red line is there for icing the puck only.

    Would love to see golf allow you to tap down spike marks. You should not be penalized because someone has happy feet and no sense of etiquette. The rule is also inconsistent. I can fix anyone's ball marks, but if a spike mark is in my way, I have to let it be. Neither fits the point of golf, which is to play the course as it's presented, but one can be fixed and the other cannot. Makes no sense.

    The rule is seven -- six gets you the penalty. The purpose of the rule (and all the formation stuff) is simple -- it's so the defense can identify the eligible receivers. Seven men on the line, the two men on the outside are eligible and the five inside are not. Of course, you said you wanted to do away with ineligible receivers also...

    I think that sport is called rugby.

    Offsides in soccer. The sport would be more fun to watch if that were eliminated. Again, if someone wants to cherry pick, let them. Or just guard them.
