great conversation piece. i am not a fan of shortening the games from 48 to 40 minutes.
i am a HUGE fan of shortening the total length of games.
under 2 minutes: each team gets 1 timeout and 2 ball advances. 3 timeouts total per half, 1 reg and 2 20 sec.
shorten halftime by 5 minutes but keep the same number of commercials for national tv games. in other words, shorten the stupid tv halftime shows.
no replays unless the clock is under 3:00 min in the quarter and replays only on change of possessions out of bounds, foot on the line and shot clock violation. plus, when a replay is announced the refs have 60 seconds to decide. if no decision can be made, call stands.
subs on at the 2nd foul shot or before the and 1 foul shot. if you want to sub the shooter you have to wait for the next dead ball.
no staggered subs. at the dead ball, all subs must be cleared from the scores table within 5 seconds.
