When the news broke some time ago that the NFL was considering putting a merciful end to the woeful AFC-NFC Pro Bowl there was not much of an argument raised against the idea.
Let’s face it–the game sucks. Some players have been fond of the event (a free trip to Hawaii) while others could not be bothered to attend if their lives depended on it. Therein lies the problem. The best of the best get voted in, but rarely end up playing making it more of a mediocre event rather than an all-star one.
