View Full Version : New NFL Pro Bowl Format

I happen to agree with Jerry Rice's opinion that he's not sure the pro-bowl can be saved. New format, no kickoffs, coin toss to see who get's the opening drive, ball placed at the 25 yard line after a score (since they are removing kickoffs), teams will be chosen draft style and other changes.

Personally I really don't care, the pro-bowl is a joke, the players don't play, there is no Defense, no one want's to get hurt and they treat it like a free vacation to Hawaii, people pay a lot of money to go to that game and the players don't exactly give them their money's worth, also the timing of the game means players from the two best teams won't be involved anyway.

I haven't watched a pro-bowl in years, what's your take, do you care?

"If they want a vacation, go to the Bahamas," said Rice, who also works as an ESPN analyst. "Back in the day, it was an honor to play in the Pro Bowl."~ J. Rice

Can't remember the last Pro Bowl I watched. Don't know if I will ever watch one in the future. If it happens to be on while I am having a cigar at the Shilo Inn, I may glance at the screen and accidentally see the game :)

Like you, have not watched the Pro Bowl in years and these changes will not have me tuning in. The Pro Bowl is BY FAR the worst of the All Star games, unwatchable.

NHL>Baseball>NBA>I won't even slot the Pro Bowl here, because..well....why? Just ax the game and do a "Battle of the Network Stars" like competition, including the wives/girlfriends/cheerleaders... The players get their vacation and the network gets something to broadcast.

Are they going to introduce DEFENSE to this years game?

Haven't watched in years and I love to watch Football. Hate that the players on the two Super Bowl teams don't even play. Why bother voting, let alone watching it cause it just dont matter. The people you want to see won't be there.
