Kronum?

What the?

Now, I'm not going to take credit for finding this on my own. Sportsnation did the work for me, but I felt like discussing it with others.

Kronum

I mean seriously. It looks pretty intense. Speed of lacrosse, soccer, hockey, and basketball.. some physicality of football/rugby. Scoring of basketball. Skills of all the sports.Personally, I'd love for it to become a "real" sport, an ncaa sport, or at least, a pro sport. Obviously, most Americans don't like certain things (soccer), so I feel this would catch on faster in Europe, because they have handball, which is similar.

some rules/conditions

10v10

70yd diameter field

4 goals

2 steps allowed before you have to dribble (I think just when you have the ball in hand)
