Memorial Day weekend is but right around the corner (Literally) and everybody...
NFL Considering Getting Rid of Pro Bowl
This year, as many years before, the Pro Bowl was less than amusing and fans of the game spent the whole 2 hours or so on Twitter ranting on how the game was a waste of time to both fans and the players.
Perhaps the league could consider having the Pro bowl AFTER the Superbowl, which would allow top players in the Superbowl to attend the All Star studded game.It seems as though the league has picked up on the lackluster enthusiasm of the entire event and are planning of ditching the whole idea.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell stated ESPN’s Mike and Mike in the Morning that after the way last Sunday’s Pro Bowl was played, he will consider eliminating it.
I don’t feel the league would lose or gain anything with getting rid of the Pro Bowl. The game counts for nothing, and I’m sure players wouldn’t oppose to elimating the event either.
According to ProFootballTalk.com, next year’s Pro Bowl will likely be played in New Orleans and since the game does draw good TV ratings, it may not be eliminated any time soon.
