I'd take it further. There's no reason to stop the clock when a player goes out of bounds. He gets up and goes right back in. Same thing with incompletions. Just throw another ball in from the sideline and play on.

I like this. The current setup favors three things: use of exotic player packages, TV revenue, and everyone's bladder.

It has unintended consequences for game flow and creates more chances for player injury by increasing the number of hits per game.

Looks like a win for everything except bladder relief to keep the clock running.

On edit: I would still like to see a reversion to the old gridiron layout of the field, too, though that has little to do with stoppages of play.

During most of the game the clock restarts once the ball is spotted on out of bounds, doesn't it? Same idea here I think

What I propose is the clock not stop at all.

This is a terrible idea, football shrinkflation. It would reduce significantly the number of snaps in a game. All because the networks can’t stop gorging themselves with ad money. What needs to go is instant replay.

I'd like to see instant replay go too but that's not going anywhere so you cut back in these areas. I'll add that the clock should start on kick-offs when the kicker's foot hits the ball.

Didn't they try that for a year or two with the kickoffs only to go back to the way it is now?

Yes. It didn’t last long.
