DO NOT bring back the mile.
If you really think this will "save track and field" and lead to more people attending meets or even get more TV coverage you are truly delusional.
The rest of the world runs 1500m and the US just needs to adapt. Simple as that.
People that really care about running can identify with the 1500m. They know what it means to run 3:50 or 4:20.
For those who cannot identify, they also do not care truly if I run 4:03 in the mile or 4:04. My non-running friends sometimes ask me "what is your mile PR"? I simply convert my 1500m time to the mile (add 17secs). That's because I ran the mile only once about 8 years ago.
But don't think they choice of 1500m or mile has an influence on them whether they would attend a meet or watch TV coverage. Either way they would not do it.
