    Curious what that had to do with diving.

    I'm also pretty sure that the nhl would kill for those ratings as well over the course of a dozen years.

    The trapezoid should be gone altogether…it's a dumb rule. All it takes is a goalie to mishandle the puck in the corner and it could result in a goal, which would probably happen more often than a powerplay happens from a goalie touching the puck there. At that very least, it could result in more excitement just for the fact that the goalie is way out of the net.

    The spin-o-rama shootout rule would be dumb as well, god forbid there's some excitement in the shootout.

    This all stems from a player not putting his stick down appropriately, easy loop hole would be instead, have team mate encroach, causing a different face off violation, if I read this correctly it is only for player say LW going in for a draw and intentionally getting kicked out

    The NHL's ratings relative to soccer have nothing to do with soccer's ratings. The potential ratings for a soccer without diving relative to actual soccer are what matter. The ridiculous diving is one of the top reasons I only care about soccer once every four years. The diving in the NHL is my biggest pet peeve with that league, and the diving in the NBA is way up there as well. The diving in soccer is the #1 punchline when Americans feel the need to make fun of soccer. If soccer wants more people in the US to watch it, they should do something about it.

    That might be the case instead. But that still gives the team a chance to rest a little after a reset.

    In other rule ideas, I've thought that if a team begins a period on a powerplay, then the faceoff to start the period should be in the offensive zone. The team killing the penalty can choose the side.

    Starting the period at center ice means that even if the attacking team wins the faceoff, they still have to take the time to break into the zone, effectively killing time off the powerplay.

    The reason no one in the US watches soccer is because we don't win it and we don't have the best players in the world playing it. It's not "our" sport. That and there's virtually no coverage of it in the country.

    If the reason was because people dive, they wouldn't be getting like 25 million people watching for a US game against Portugal. In comparison, Game 5 of the finals this year got 6 million. If the US team was in the final game of the World Cup, you could bet your ass there would be over 50 million people tuning in. Probably closer to 75. The problem isn't diving...it's the US not being that great.

    It is pretty much standard protocol now. It bugs me.

    The reason for this, when it first was considered, was goalies purposely going into corners to retrieve pucks full well knowing they were not subject to contact from the opposing team. You can almost go in there and beg to get get hit, and if you do, your team is going on the power play. The thinking used to be, if a goalie goes that far out of his crease, then he should not be protected. Or, restrict the space, behind the goal line, to where he can operate.
    As far as the spin-o-rama, the problem is you are suppose to be going forward, as well as the puck all the time. You cannot go backwards, so even lateral movement is hard to judge. Because of the requirement to keep going forward.
