I would like to see across all major North American sports the ability for clubs to "loan" players out to other teams, like they do in professional soccer leagues. Think of all the rookies that get drafted in the NFL, NBA, etc onto really good, stacked teams that won't see any game action unless it's garbage time. Instead of riding the pine for the Lakers atrophying on the bench, if some other team that has an injury crisis actually wants to use and play your rookie for a few months, let them; he actually gets some playing time and you can send scouts to their games to evaluate in real NBA action if this kid is "ready", still needs time, or actually sucks major balls.

It could also be used for overpaid veterans grumbling on the bench - let him play somewhere else for awhile instead of farking up the chemistry in your locker room if he's unhappy but you currently can't trade him because of various reasons.

Misuse of tag because:

A)  Satire
B)  Not amusing
C)  Painfully unfunny

I have now had my respect for the New Yorker diminished (this was greenlit by multiple people there?  How is that possible?)......and whoever greenlit this.

Terrible.

This isn't the Onion's style.  The NY and SNL both have this problem - this is what passes for high comedy inside their Upper West Side bubble, like when SNL makes fun of some weird-ass European channel that nobody outside of their metro gets to see.
