Anyway, I think Roller Derby still has the potential to be a good "made for tv" sport....but I would make it unscripted and unrehearsed. My league would throw out "derby names'"....like in the old days, there would be men and women's squads that would alternate periods. It would be on a banked track, the match would be four 12 minute periods with the male and female teams alternating, A jam would last 60 seconds and the jam would automatically end when one jammer achieves a grand slam....if the designated lead jammer achieves this first, two bonus points would be awarded for a maximum of six. If the opposing jammer makes a grand slam first, no bonus would be awarded for a max of four. If for some reason the team's designated jammer is taken off the track either by being forced off or removed by penalty, the team's pivot would take over with no lead designation. The action would always be moving. After the starting formations are set, a whistle would blow and a mandatory "pace lap" would be skated in formation before a double whistle would begin the 60 second jam. As it is now, it looks more like a rugby scrimmage where once the jammer breaks through....the pack just seems to remain stationary waiting for the jammer to come around again.....this is boring. And with unlimited passes for an entire two minutes, scores are ridiculously high. I watched one bout where one team built like a 150 point lead on the other and what's the point? Anyway that's the gist of it. There would be no staged fighting.... punching and shoving would be penalized by removing the offender off the track for the remainder of the current jam. Those are just a few ideas I'm throwing out there.
