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 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?

I like the idea. No players from the Super Bowl teams will be allowed to participate, fans get a look at the rest of the "best" players (hopefully), it becomes more accessible for NFL fans to see "their" favorite up close. From what I understand the players that have a Pro Bowl clause depend on being elected (opposed to actually playing) for it to pay out. It sounds pretty plausible to me.

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.

It stated in the article that players elected, that were on the Super Bowl teams, would NOT be allowed to play. That won't be an issue.

This is so stupid. I hope it's temporary... does anyone know? Very stupid move I believe. Hawaii should be somewhat involved in football, now the state will have nothing to do with the NFL.

^^^ most states don't.

I said this on another thread about this. I think they should make the HOF game the Pro Bowl. That way 2 teams don't get 5 preseason games and it would be a good way to kick off the new season. IMO

They do... The NFL just doesn't air it till sometime in the offseason...

I'm with Ashor. I don't mind them moving the game to the week before the Super Bowl but why move it out of Hawaii? Hawaii needs to build a bigger stadium and try to get one of those stupid "international" games.

I do like the idea of having the Pro Bowl also be the HOF bowl. That really would be a great way to start the season, however you are probably going to run into more issues with players rehabing from offseason surgries. Not to mention that most pro-bowlers don't even want to play in a preseason game so after training game I'm not sure how many would want to play in a preseason pro-bowl 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

This is exactly how I feel.

Was WTF, now think it's a good idea.

Still will have to factor in a plan for what to do when a team(s) from large audiences like NY/Chicago/SF/Wash etc make it to the SB as their fans will have voted a large number of players in who wont be able to play.
