The Pro Bowl Is Great
Debate Rounds (2)
The game has certainly been on the decline for years now, and the NFL decided to attempt to reignite fan interest by changing rules, adding a fantasy football-like draft and equipping players with fancy uniforms.
Well, it didn't work.
First of all, the rule changes were almost irrelevant. Kickoffs were not really missed, four two-minute warnings along with a change of possession after each quarter quickly got annoying and most casual fans probably didn't notice any changes in defensive coverages.
It is high time to get rid of this piece of refuse masquerading as an football game.
The NFL Pro Bowl is easily the worst All-Star game in major sports. This is because the NFL cannot put a viable product on the field. Most of these players are too concerned about their own well-being and lack of a worthwhile paycheck to deliver any kind of a worthy performance in the modern Pro Bowl.
With $53,000 to the winners and $26,000 to the losers, the dollar figure is too small to warrant potentially ruining their chances for a new multi-million-dollar contract in the future.
Through the perspective of a child, the Pro Bowl is still probably pretty cool. Anyone that claims the Pro Bowl is legitimate football is probably a child and certainly not an actual fan of NFL football.
i think that the pro bowl is fun to watch and again, it is rewarding for the players who make it to play in it and it is in haw ii so of course they would want to be there. for example, Philip rivers declined the invitation to go to the pro-bowl and so did Carson Palmer. so they do want to be play in the pro bowl. so i am obviously right.
