The NFL is Finally Considering Killing off the Pro Bowl

Michael Garcia - April 27, 2012

The NFL Pro Bowl has long been considered a joke. Guys don't want to get hurt, so they don't go full speed, it becomes a glorified game of flag football. Now the league has heard the criticism, especially after this year's embarrassment of a game, and is considering taking the game off life support.

ESPN reports that the Pro Bowl could be 'suspended' but why even try to keep the thing alive? The players don't try, which is understandable. However it was so bad this year, that even Aaron Rodgers was calling out guys for giving such little effort.

More than anything else, the players who get selected are just looking for the free trip to Hawaii. They can all afford it, so let them pay their own way from now on.
