NFL Pro Bowl To Be Shut Down??

| Filed under: Etc.Business BlitzFootball

Pro Bowl Suspension

Wow!!

It really does seem like the Pro Bowl is in some trouble, because apparently it's on life support and in danger of being axed completely!

Commissioner Roger Goodwell is unhappy with the quality of the game and is straight up threatening to get rid of it!

Chris Mortensen from ESPN said this:

"The league is moving toward suspending the Pro Bowl, possibly this year. As one person told me last night, it is DOA, Dead on Arrival. At the same time, the league, I believe, will instruct teams to continue to put Pro Bowl incentives in contracts; if players have Pro Bowl incentives, to go ahead and pay them so they don't have a problem with the union.

"Right now, the Pro Bowl is on the calendar for the week before the Super Bowl, but there's no game site that is listed, if you look at it closely. The reason why is, after a lot of discussion, I think this commissioner Roger Goodell and other league people, and even some of the players, are basically saying, as Aaron Rodgers criticized last year's performance, that there's no reason to play in the Pro Bowl."

Apparently back in February, Goodwell basically foreshadowed this by saying that the Pro Bowl's time had passed. People are claiming it's a less intense version of the Super Bowl, which airs the same week, and that because people don't play hard it's pretty much a waste of time.

We can understand that, but we definitely feel like the NFL can be unnecessarily violent at times, too, to get that sense of urgency the fans love!

Would U be sad if it went by the wayside??
