Just bring back the 1970's regulations. Maybe keep the helmet rules (though as a purist, I'd love to see the old school game in its entirety).
I agree, although I think you need to keep the helmets. And not just shrink, but get rid of the hard plastic "pads" and replace them with smooshy foam again.
