You really want to shorten games? Limit teams to 25 passing plays per game.  There is no penalty flag for exceeded that number, but for every passing play you go over, the other team is awarded a point.

I like that, but I think that it should be balanced somehow. Like maybe if a team hits 100 points exactly, their score goes back to zero.

I would like the nuance of a team being down 4, passing for a TD, and then going for two because they gave up the point.

These are all fantastic ideas.  Most "sports" leaders are frankly terrible entertainment producers.  This whole "sanctity of the record book" stuff that we see in sports is ridiculous.  No one is telling Spielberg that he can have only so many CGI stunts in a movie, or telling those Game of Thrones guys they hit their maximum boobs shots. 

I nominate Jordan Peele, Judd Apatow or Seth McFarlane as the commish of the new college football organization that breaks away from the NCAA.

One of my favorite things about esports is that they are absolutely unafraid to change rules or balance issues, even radically at times.

Yes, and their heart was in the right place.

I like spectacles.  I like to be entertained.  I want to see someone take crazy ass risks with sports.  Some may fail, whatever.  How about soccer, but with zero rules other than the ball needs to go into the net?  It would probably just turn into a unresolvable rugby scrum at midfield, but I'd sure love to find out.

I think the most innovative coaches in my new America Zero Rules Soccer League would handle it a bit like an MMA fight.  Everyone go lock up their man in a ground-game strangle hold, and then hope your fastest guy gets the ball and just beats his man in the open field for the goal.

Rugby scrums are highly organized and tightly officiated

Pete, your game already exists. Just need to popularize it.

XFL 2.0 had a great thing with 1, 2, or 3 point PATs

Tiebreaker: the two head coaches have to get on an enclosed trampoline with about 15 paint-covered nerf footballs and bounce around.  Whoever gets paint on their clothes first is the loser.  Socks don't count since the trampoline will probably be covered in paint anyway.

If the head coaches aren't medically cleared for sudden death, they may choose a proxy from the coaching staff with the exception of quality control coaches.  It must be a position coach or coordinator.  Or maybe there is a succession of who must be chosen...like HC > DC > OC

I think the same rules as apply to a coach who would want to coach a full game in the nude.  We don't want to overcomplicate things.

They don't have to contend with historical context, which absolutely matters.
