The game is worthless. Its not entertaining and means nothing.

Cancel the pro bowl and just have a skills weekend. It means nothing, but at least its extremely entertaining and the players try harder at that than they do during the actual game.

If I am around and it is on, yeah. I usually catch some of it while doing something else. I won't make it part of my schedule, but I won't avoid it.

I'd be fine with this. Still spring for the all expenses paid vacation for players in Hawaii, but scrap the game, come up with various obstacle courses and drills for players to run, may the best man at their respective positions win.

Eh, I may tune in for a bit to see how Calvin does. Other than that no. It's horrible.

I'm not aware of any other Calvin on the roster Think, so I'll assume you're talking about Megatron. Calvin pulled out of the PB with a knee "injury."

Whether it is entertaining or not, I do have one question. Why do so many people want it canceled? If you aren't watching it, what would canceling it accomplish or changing it to a skills competition? Not that I would be opposed to it. But really, I don't see any issue with the Pro Bowl game itself. Of course nobody is going to go hard but it doesn't disappoint me because I don't expect anyone to go hard anyway. I watch it for the sake of.

The only change I think that needs to be made is if someone drops out and you take there place, you should not then be considered a Pro Bowler. You can play in the game but I don't see why it goes on your resume. But the game itself, I don't have an issue with and I don't think canceling it would accomplish anything.

I voted no, if any explanation is required, the Chiefs now have a 3:1 Pro Bowler to Win ratio.

They've been showing the 2005 NFL skills challenge on NFL network all day, just scrap the game and bring that back. I'd watch that, definitely watch that. It's leagues more entertaining than the actual game.

To answer the question, I'll probably just do this.

I haven't watched the Pro Bowl in a long time. I am definitely going to try to catch this one so I can see Andrew Luck play with a top notch line and some great receivers, granted that top notch line will face less stress then anything Luck faced all season

What's this Pro Bowl?


Is it a professional eating contest?

I'm definitely going to watch it. Heck, it's another game, and we only have two left for the year until next fall.

Also, in spite of the large percentage of players who are just going through the motions, you still get to see some good stuff. I vividly remember the monster hit that a now deceased Redskin safety put on a lowly punter a few years back. I also loved hearing about Ray Lewis complaining that Adrian Peterson was running way too hard in an "exhibition" game. Laughing
