What if the NBA’s Eastern Conference disqualified players after their fifth personal foul, while the Western Conference stuck with the traditional six?
Or if the NFL’s AFC used spot of the foul for pass interference penalties, while the NFC went with 15 yards and an automatic first down.
How about if the NHL’s Eastern Conference used the five minute four-on-four followed by a shootout method to settle overtime, while the Western Conference played five-on-five until someone scored?
And imagine if the method used was determined by the conference the home team played for.
MLB’s American League using a designated hitter, while the National League sends their pitchers to the plate?
Quite simply, the designated hitter needs to go.
