I’ve been thinking about this for awhile and popular US sports are things like football, baseball, basketball. There can be minor rule changes but a field goal is always worth 3 points. ...
Still, the governing bodies do make small rules changes each year. For instance, Major League Baseball periodically reviews whether there are enough crowd-pleasing home runs or if fans would rather see a pitcher's duel. Then they adjust the instructions to the referees about how wide to call the strike zone the next year.
