Sorry if there's been a thread for this. Had a some ideas, nothing drastically different but a few things:
Added NEL punishment:
-In addition to the Speed Bump, why not increase the stakes by adding even further incentive for teams not to slack off if they ever suspect that it's going to be a NEL by having the teams that check in last during an NEL henceforth not be eligible to receive any of the prizes if they win a leg? But to be fair if they do ever win a future leg, they can choose to give away their prize to another team (that isn't also penalized by this) or not give it to any team at all.
An international intersection
-I know everyone hates the intersection and saw it as totally pointless as did I, but given that many countries are starting to have their own versions of tar, why not bring back the intersection and have the American teams intersect with a foreign version's teams? Or is this an idea that's only good on paper and would casual viewers not care and/or want to see this?
For certain tasks, forbid teams from sharing answers and/or working together.
-It's not fun seeing a team do minimal to absolutely no work and get rewarded for it, just because they are friends with another team. I'm specifically talking about mental tasks that require things like counting or deciphering a phrase.
