Bouncy Sports

Making sports more exciting by adding bounce.

This kind of idea could be applied to some sports already in existence or become it’s 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 it’s own self-contained room with padding and nets with the spectators behind Perspex screens.

I am serious about this idea, this isn’t 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)

       I knew somebody would bring that up but [Admiral Hackbar] I hate to break it to you, the sports bra will make such dreams a thing of the past. “Only the balls should bounce”, whose stupid idea was that!?
