Constitutional amendments for team sports.
Seems pretty fundamental. For NBA games it is actually taken for granted. Not so for NFL games. Increasingly in recent decades the integrity of Major Baseball League (MBL) games under commissioner Allen Huber "Bud" Selig has been undermined by many policies that he originated or let become worse.
Playing tournament games in the rain has become common. Regular season games are often played in the rain or at least on wet fields. This is totally unacceptable. Selig should be ashamed but he has no shame.
So what to do? Put lids on the ball parks. What, you say? Most of those parks have been built in recent years under the Selig regime and there are now fewer parks with a roof than before. Gee, maybe Bud should have considered that. Too bad. The new constitutional amendment must be followed. It's not my fault that Selig screwed up just about every issue.
So for open air ball parks, play must be halted whenever the field becomes wet. No, not soaked, just wet. This will cause a problem adhering to constitutional amendment 1, that games must be completed within two hours.
Bud Selig, you really suck at being commissioner.
