I agree that the long putter should be banned. To brace the putter against the body takes away the natural golf swing for putting, definitely helping to keep the putting stroke on line without any sway.
Probably what Tiger suggested, that the putter should be no longer than the shortest club in the bag
is a good idea.

Or, since it is not against the rules then all players should go to the long putter and then nobody will have an advantage.

That would seem the most logical action.
So the "short putters" would quit whining too.
A win-win situation.
