My Sports Wish List

Divya ParmarSenior Analyst IMarch 10, 2008

A couple of days ago, I was thinking about what I would want changed if I could change anything I wanted. I thought about making a wish list with a few things on it. There are a lot of things in sports that are very messed up. But here are a few I would want changed more others.

1. College Football Playoff (no BCS)

I don't care who is preventing this. College Presidents, coaches, conference commissioners, TV networks. I don't give a crap who it is.

A playoff would be exciting and fair. We would get a true national champion. I would personally prefer a 16-team playoff with the 6 conference champs, plus 10 at-large teams with a requirement of at least 2 non-BCS teams getting in.

I don't care how, but we all deserve a freakin' playoff system already.

2.  NBA Playoff format change to best-16 teams instead of 8 from each conference.

The Western Conference is so much better than the Eastern Conference that a 50-win team will MISS THE PLAYOFFS in the West while a 35 win team will MAKE THE PLAYOFFS in the East. 

My idea would balance out the conferences by giving deserving teams from the stronger conference a chance in the playoffs. That would be a fair system for all the teams.

3. MLB salary cap (both maximum and minimum payroll)

 This would create some equality between teams. The Yankee's and Red Sox couldn't just buy a championship, while the Marlins and Nationals couldn't act like Scrooges and be cheap. 

The teams in the middle of the pack would benefit from this.
