If this week has a theme, it’s some pretty outlandish ideas. Here we go…
Crazy idea #1) Should we relegate half the Premier League each season? It would certainly liven things up a bit. Mid-table mediocrity begone! Weirdly, as the Guardian points out, it’s a idea that’s been around for a while… (since 1926)
Crazy idea #2) Should we make hooliganism a sport? An idea that has come out of… Russia.
Good idea #1) Let’s simplify and speed up golf.
Good idea #2) Why not create an Olympic city to stop the financial ruin of hosting the Games? Or perhaps create a pool of 5-10 cities that rotate. Less waste!
Interesting point #1) Football managers have way less influence than you think. Ranieri wasn’t a genius, and nor should he have been sacked.
Interesting point #2) Sports writing (esp in the US) is a liberal profession. How did that happen?
Interesting point #3) Wimbledon’s football rebirth is, arguably, the greatest sports story (n)ever told.
