Its on a lot earlier this year, so I'll probably watch, despite the tag nature of it.

Why do they bother with this crock of Donald Trump? By all means, announce two ‘all star’ teams, made up of those who starred during the year, but dispense with actually playing a sham of a game. Yes, NFL players are highly-paid sportsmen, but, as I always tell my mates who are non-NFL fans, these guys are always one hit or one blind-side tackle away from ending their careers. Look at Bridgewater - blew a knee out in training. Wentz - ligaments gone diving into the endzone. 300lb defensive linemen can easily get their legs rolled over by a guy falling on them. Gronk just got concussed. Serious injury can, and does, occur in situations not even involving the most brutal hits.

If I was an NFL player just through a gruelling season and was headed to the Pro Bowl, I’d treat it like touch football. In my opinion, in a brutal collision sport, sheer madness to expect guys to go into a ‘friendly match’ and play it anywhere even close to normal NFL football.

The Pro Bowl sucks. Bin it... or play it in Mexico City and give us another regular season game.

pretty sure last year there was a highlights show on game pass later in the week but from what I saw the whole "skills showdown" was awful.
