What rules do you think need to be implemented?

After years of writing the Mailbag in fits and starts, I am legitimately committing to writing it every week. This is it. I’m doing it.
The Mailbag is now for subscribers only. That’s going to do a few things: it will keep me committed to writing it every week. It will reward subscribers with a weekly column they can count on (and we have more weekly content rolling out soon!). And it will allow us to offer, every week, a free one-month Mini subscription for the best email or comment we get and publish in the Mailbag. If you’re already a subscriber, you get a free extra month (or a discount). If you’re not, you can come in and check out the benefits.
You can email me anytime at [email protected] with questions, comments, ideas — whatever you’ve got.
Shout out to everyone who sent in great questions this week. I couldn’t get to all of them, but keep ’em coming. I’ll eventually answer most of them!
Q: Hey Chuck, it’s ya boi Matt. Could you actually and explicitly say what your ideal set of rules would be?
- Field size
- Stall count
- Subs on timeouts
- Timed games (probably not?)
- Observers do the count?
- Yardage penalties for stuff?
- More TMFs?
- Foul counts leading to fouling out?

A: Hoo, boy. This is a tough one. In general, I would categorize my thoughts on this into different bins: rules that should absolutely exist, rules that should probably exist but might need tweaking, and rules that should be experimented with. I wrote an article a couple years ago that mostly captures my current thoughts but doesn’t dig into those categories. So let’s get detailed.
