Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
How about basketball? The NORMAL situation is that you run down to the other end of the court and get a basket; the UNUSUAL case is to miss. Therefore, the scoring should be like golf: you get a point when you miss an attempt, and the low score wins. Then you would have results in the thirties instead of over 100.
Then you could just exhaust your possession to lower the number of attempts...

The question is Basketball is how quick you can score.

By laying out pros and cons we risk inducing people to join the debate, and losing control of a process that only we fully understand. - Alan Greenspan
