Better Sport: Football, Basketball or Baseball

We just can’t go wrong with sports. Whether it is football, basketball or baseball. No disrespect to soccer, tennis, hockey or other sports; they just aren’ t on the same level as the first three I listed, in my opinion.

To start things off, my favorite sport is football, with basketball a close second, followed by baseball.

Just the excitement that both, professional and college football brings, is just unmatched. Every weekend is something new and fun.

Too look at the NFL first, we all know that the Seahawks, Patriots, Packers, Broncos, Ravens and the fast emerging Colts will most likely be in the 2015 NFL Playoffs. But, there is always 1 or 2 teams that come out of the blue and surprise the league.

In College Football, there are like 20+ legit teams that can win the National Championship any season. Then comes the 5-10 teams that come and surprise the nation.

With the NBA, it is pretty much the same teams that are competing for the Larry O’Brien trophy: Spurs, Cavs, Warriors, Heat, Clippers and a few others.

MLB hands down has the better playoffs year in and year out, in my opinion. I guess the season being so long kind of makes it lose points in this.

In the MLB, it’s a new team every season  it seems like. Take a look at the Kansas City Royals, they were 1 win away from winning the World Series, after being  a no show in the playoffs in the previous couple of seasons.

To recap, I think that football is the best sport, and is definitely my favorite.

Should the NFL Keep Experimenting With New Rules?

In my opinion, football is the best sport in the world, and also my favorite. Each Sunday, nothing is guaranteed except for pure fun. I wake up, watch football and go to sleep every Sunday during September-February. Yes, even when the Falcons are struggling, I still religiously watch them.

So, that brings me to the topic-Should the NFL Keep Experimenting With New Rules?

I think that they should not, only if it is for certain that it would help the game. But, let’s be honest here, can the NFL get any better than it already is? Probably not.

Here are some of the things the NFL is experimenting with over the pas few seasons:

NFL might experiment with making extra-point attempts longer

NFL to experiment with narrower field goal posts in Pro Bowl

NFL rule change: Extra point moved back, defenses can score

I am not on board with making PAT’s longer. I mean, it is called “extra point attempt” for a reason, right?

The NFL did get it right with the new concussion protocol, I will admit.

I just don’t want the great sport that is the NFL to mess up something great. If they keep adding new rules, then eventually it will change the sport in a negative way.

The only rule they need to add is the: “Let the Falcons win every game and the Super Bowl in the 2015 Season”. Because let’s be real, it is time for the Atlanta Falcons to win a championship.

Should Fans Be Allowed To Vote Player’s into All-Star Games?

Fan voting is something that has been added into sports the last couple of seasons. The NBA, NFL and MLB allows fans to vote players into All-Star games. This is a good thing, but also could be an unfair thing. I will discuss the pros and cons of All-Star fan voting; starting with the positives.

Who wouldn’t want to see players from his/her favorite team not be in the All-Star game? Didn’t think so.

What Yankees fan wants to see a Red Sox player having an incredible season start for the American League? Well, I would not.

Having fans vote players into the All-Star game was a smart thing to add to the game. It makes sports even more fun.  Allowing fans the option to vote let’s us decide who we want to see start in the All-Star game. It also allows us to be able to not vote for someone deserving.

I like the idea of allowing fans to vote, but I think that it should ultimately be up to the players in the league to vote.

For example, the Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers are hated NFL rivals and do not like each other. But, Joe Flacco, QB for the Ravens, had a remarkable season throwing for 4,500 yards and 40TD’s. Those numbers are certainly Pro Bowl(NFL All-Star game) worthy.

He doesn’t get voted in, but instead Ben Roethlisberger, QB for the Steelers, gets voted in because Steelers fans’ voted for him millions of times, although he had a pedestrian season.

The point of this blog is to say this: Sports leagues allowing fans to vote was and is a great idea, but shouldn’t be factored in heavily at all.
