This link on NFL.com said the probowl in 2010 will be held the week before the superbowl. WTF

It will be held in the same stadium too.

Just a simple way to draw up more revenue.

Good ole Goodell

Couldn't care less. But more people will watch now, players who are to be in the Super Bowl won't play so they won't get injured, and now there's something to watch that long boring week before the SB.

True it has its Pros and Cons. The players just wont get the Hawaii experience anymore though. Oh and John Madden can attend them now.

I didn't think you could de-value the Pro Bowl anymore but I stand corrected.

I think its great, only because it allows people to attend the game, that wouldnt be able to do before. I will make the trip to Miami in 2010 :) Should be great!

Why the hell would you travel to see that game? It's not even Football. It's like going to a baseball game were the pitchers can't throw anything but a BP fastball to major league hitters. Except that would be worst..... because there is no clock. :eek:

It would be alright to have it on the saturday b4 the super bowl. But no one in the superbowl would obviously play.

They rarely played when it was after the super bowl either.

It's likely that both Super Bowl teams will have a decent number of Pro Bowlers on their roster, so that probably takes 5-10 players out of the game. There's no way any coach would let their players risk injury by playing in a meaningless game.

Hmmm, at first I was WTF... now I kinda like the idea... that week of no football action is kind of dull... I bet lots more people will tune into it now

It would practically be cost free for me to go to it so why not? Be a good chance to enjoy the super bowl experience and meet some of the pro bowlers when they make appearances.

Haha I expect all the players in the SB will not go for some reason cause can you see if one of them got hurt or how tired he would be in the SB. Sorry Dumb Idea Goodell. I think they need to try to do something like the NBA dose in like challenges and not just a game. It might be better IMO.

Is the Pro Bowl a cash cow for the NFL and thats the only real reason they keep it on the schedule?
