Quote from: Jesse on February 07, 2022, 11:42:14 AMDidn't watch, but saw some of the things being talked about online.Right of the bat, I don't feel there's anything insulting to the game at all. It's just players having fun. Which is all the pro bowl ever was - it is not and has not and will not ever be a game of serious football. The only reason players went was to go have fun in Hawaii.They changed the format because no one was interested in watching a fake game of football, so they're trying to make it more appealing to players and fans alike - I get that.I do think that having any kind of game is kind of silly and there should just be a skills competition. I've also seen a 7-7 game thrown around as an idea.

Quote from: blue_or_die on February 08, 2022, 02:01:35 PMI hate all star games and think they're just a giant disruption to the season. This is especially true in the NFL, where it kills all the momentum of a fabulous January of playoffs every year. With the pro bowl and now a 17th game added, NFL doesn't end until mid Feb when it could cleanly end right at the end of January.
Quote from: theaardvark on February 08, 2022, 03:47:10 PMWith the "pro bowl" filling that advertising void between the finals and the SB, it begs, do you need a 2 week turnaround to the SB? Every other league, every other game in the NFL is one week turn around. Why 2 for the SB? To squeeze another week of advertising and the "Pro" bowl into there? Plus, by all measures, many of the players that should be featured in a "Pro" bowl are in the SB... and will not be seen in the "Pro" bowl...
