I hope we dont get any injuries is my only real opinion on the game.

A Pro Bowl thread? Really? :confused: :D

*actually, the Pro Bowl draft will no doubt create a lot more talking than the game itself, so fair enough.

I have never watched the Probowl and doubt I will this year to be honest.

No interest whatsoever. As others have mentioned before, just give the players the recognition of being voted to it and leave it at that.

The fact that the league actively encourages players to tweet on the sidelines via dedicated booths says everything about the type of event this is.

The. Pro. Bowl is pointless rubbish - the end.

I agree the game is a waste of time. No argument at all.


However I have yet to ever see a single suggestion of what could replace it, thus attracting all important revenue stream for the league, honouring the players who have excelled at their positions throughout the year (or been voted in on the strength of their name!) and actually amuse a televised audience as much as a game of football does. (even a nonsense game of football like this one)

QB Drills and skill tests are all well and good, but they're not primetime entertainment, lets be honest.

I wonder how much revenue it actually brings? If it continues the way it has, then surely interest will wain even further. I think most would agree, just get rid of it.

With the Shrine Game/Senior Bowl coverage growing, the whole pre/post SuperBowl fanfare, and then FA and even more draft analysis, surely the NFL could fill their air time with that.
