This kind of idea could be applied to some sports already in existence or become its own hybrid sport. If players wore spring compression shoes or boots they could perform ludicrously amazing and stunning attack and defence manoeuvres which would make a game more stunning and exciting. It could be played
in its own self-contained room with padding and nets with the spectators behind Perspex screens.
I am serious about this idea, this isnt some take off of roller ball this is a genuine idea that I think would make sports more exciting (and probably more dangerous).
Just imagine an American footballer running toward the end zone with 3 opposing players bearing down on him and then
bounce he flips straight over their heads. (All players would probably have to ware neck braces though)
