Seems like we are a little poll-happy in this off-season but after watching the Pro-Bowl I had to vent…..
This game is a joke. There is no excitement from the players that are there and so many of the players that made it stayed out due to “injury” that the product that is now being put on the field is an insult to fans. The fear of injury or lack of desire to play in the game makes the game useless…...
I think the game needs to be ended and replace the name of “Pro-Bowl” player to “All-Pro” and call it a season for those who made it.
The younger players (Wilson, Luck) seemed to really get something out of it, being around the Mannings, Brees, etc. But yeah, those games are pretty boring. Wasn’t it Sean Taylor that got blasted for hitting someone “too hard”, now they just wrap up and gently fall to the turf. They probably should cancel the game.
They should still vote for the Pro-Bowl teams though. Players get bonuses for making it, I’m pretty sure. All-Pro is different from Pro Bowler. All-Pro is pretty much equivalent to 1st team All-American in college.
I think they should do something similar to the MLB.
The winning conference of the Pro Bowl (half way through the season) should get to host the Super Bowl on their own turf. Instead of always hosting it in Hawaii, let stadiums bid for it like the All Star Game(MLB).
I’m glad the Superbowl will be hosted at the Giant’s stadium. Why not have a superbowl in Seattle? In the Meadowlands? In Greenbay? At soldier field?
I’m tired of New Orleans, Miami, and Tempe Arizona hosting the big games. Also, I like how Minnesota (the college team!) built an outdoor stadium. It would be nice to see Syracuse do that too! That’s a real home field advantage!
