    i'm inventing a new sport
    it will include a full court basketball court
    it will use tennis balls as the sports ball
    it will have ping pong paddles for the players to use
    the basketball hoop will be 12' instead of the regular 10'
    the rim will be 8 inches instead of the regular 18 inches
    the three-point line will be half court
    if you can get a basket from full court that will be 100 points

    the players will have to use the ping pong paddles to dribble the tennis ball down the court, they will have to use the paddles to pass the ball to their teammates, there will be a 20 sec shot clock and you have to get across midcourt within 4 sec or you turn to ball over and the other team gets to shoot free throws, and you have to shoot free throws within 3 sec or you turn the ball over, none of that standing around for 10-15 sec them make or miss everybody and thier cousin fistbumping the free throw shooter.

    there will be a 1 hour game timer, no quarters no rest
    each player will only have 3 fouls to give
    this will be 4 on 4 where one player stays at the goal and defends while the other three try to score

    more rules coming as I figure them out

    it's suspicious because it was fixed and people will still throw that number around forever like the sport is squeaky clean

    it was not always like this, from the 50s to the 80s they let the players decide who was gonna win and who would play in the championship game, more so than not the refs would let the guys play, bang hard, give hard fouls and not call fouls on every ticky tack touch, the NBA was tough back then, and you could not be a crybaby. These players today are good and skilled, but 9 out of 10 would not have held up back in the day.

    Well that's interesting. Radio has a program on that is talking about how surveys are being used for people's voices and then those are transferred to AI and manipulated to then call people and make them think a family member is in trouble.

    sports just ain't what it was at one time
    I wish the NFL would keep letting the players celebrate in the endzone after a TD, they did to a degree last season, but previous seasons it had been taken away. I mean come the fuck on, it's a GAME < FUN

    and the league wants to stop celebrating? they treat it as a business only, when in fact it's a sport, competition, it's for the fans to enjoy, so stop with the BS and let the hard working high priced ticket buying paying a fuckin mortgage to get a parking spot near the stadium paying $5 for a hotdog and $4 for a Coke... have some fuckin FUN

    they did to a degree last season?? Did you watch any Eagles games? Youre right. they used to penalize group celebration. Last season, Eagles would have a dude set up as umpire, catcher, pitcher, then the guy who scored was in the batters box swinging for the fences. haha

    I'm sitting here thinking about this.... ping pong paddles dribbling tennis balls could work. The paddles are sturdy enough and the balls are big enough.
    I'm thinking there might be a lot of wild shots though. This would break up the fast-paced game.

    Yeah. Altho' the players aren't blameless there. TO running to the 50 to spike the ball. That kind of thing deserves a taunting penalty. Even stuff like the Fun Bunch and other organized celebrations took extra time. Not great for a league that has been trying to decrease game times. Now the Ickey Shuffle or Billy Johnson type stuff should have never been banned. They even harassed poor Ickey when he did his dance on the sidelines. No Fun League.
