While we are on the brink of a new CBA and what changes it should include,How about the IR rules that have been going on forever? Shouldn't the IR rules be changed to rules like the other sports where a player who is injured goes on the disabled list and comes back when cleared by doctors.....Why does an injury that MAY heal fully before the end of the season cause a player to miss the whole year? I am a baseball and limited basketball fan and I think the rules regarding injured players are working well for those sports leagues. Do you think it would be an advantage to have the IR rules changed?...for example it might not work out for us if a division rival player like Revis gets injured and then comes back in time for the playoffs but it also might help us if a guy like Mayo was injured and was able to return later? I think teams put players prematurely on IR lists every year without 100% probability that they are not able to return and that certain player could definately make a difference to whether a team wins in the playoffs or even gets there. I think there is also a safety issue for that players health and well being for one of the reasons for ignoring a change to the policy,but they are payed to play a violent game anyways....why not change it before the new CBA is said and done?
