7 Things We Don't Want To See In 2011

What Would You Like To See In Sports In 2011?

One Great Season

Typically around the turn of a new year, scribes like to share what they'd like to see in sports during the upcoming calendar.

Jacqueline Conrad, St. Louis Cardinals Blogger — I would love to see Major League Baseball institute an instant replay program similar to what is used in the Little League World Series. It's simple, quick and effective. If that doesn't happen, then how about the MLB renaming all divisions after middle-school YMCA leagues? The Big Ten had so much success, it should cause a groundswell. Gooo Legends!

Paul Daugherty, Cincinnati Enquirer Columnist — Eliminate instant replay in all sports.
