You make it sound as if sporting events are constantly running over their
time slots by hours. That doesn't seem to be the case, and wouldn't require
the extreme changes you are suggesting would be required.

On the weather front, there's a simple solution: If you have exhausted your
buffer time, due to weather, it's time to call the game and reschedule.

I don't even care how large the buffer period is. Want two hours? Fine!
Just make things predictable.
