The World Cup is like the Olympics, not a professional league.  Barca and Real did not face-off in a UEFA Third Place Game.  In addition, the risk of injury in football is far greater than in futbol.  No sense in risking it for a meaningless competition.

you're looking at it the wrong way, and have no idea how incentives work. pro bowl= no incentives.

what's the incentive for being third place? a worst draft pick than 4th?

 

i don't see why it matters or how a team would benefit by being third. first is all that matters. the rest just didn't get the job done.

 

it's an empty honor in thus setting.

I'd watch. It would definitely be better than the probowl.

To be fair...there are  LOT of pointless end of the season games! I believe this game would add revenue and more bragging rights! I believe coaches would use this game as a measuring stick just incase their team faced another high octane team in the playoffs. IF we eliminated the probowl and had a 3rd place game I believe this would get more ratings than a probowl game. The game would have to include a bonus for all involved especially the winners of the game.  I have to say from experience from playing in 3rd place game there still is a fire inside of everyone who plays and they do put forth a lot more effort than a meaningless probowl....

From that point of view its a big winner, I agree. I am just a fan though, no vested interest.

frikkin putz can't handle someone disagreeing with him with out turning into a pissant.

I think they should replace the Probowl with your idea. The game would have a little more meaning. Hey, it could work! You could also use this game for draft positioning....so it would have meaning in that aspect.

yea if you offer money to the teams and the 28th draft spot for the 3rd place finisher, there's plenty of incentive to play... and if youre concerned that players wont risk their bodys for meaningless games, ill refer you to the preseason.

C'mon son.. you can try a wee bit harder than that.
