Wait how did this make it to 6 pages? I was only here for page 1, and I thought it was pretty much settled when I realized that 3 posters above me posted pretty much the same thing in a row.

I bet the chicks just dig that.




From what I can tell, your idea is not going very well for you. Too many holes in the theory. Contrary to your fotbol intellect. POFEFESSIONAL football players are conditioned to work to be the best. They would not want to play for third place.

Two sets of fans would watch this game. Fans of the two teams. And the ones that tune in because nothing else is on. Most sports fans played sports. They don't care about third place either. So the ratings would probably suck.

The incentives you speak of would not be enough to sway players into playing. You couldn't offer much more than Prow Bowl money, and I don't see Pros playing for that little in a meaningless game. Because offer enough to entice the guys to play could cheapen the Super Bowl.

Also, why would fans tune in for a glorified preseason game? Where the stars fans really want to see may not even play? Sounds like a sure fire ratings nightmare. I'm sure advertisers would line up for this. So I don't see enough money for the NFL, to make this feasible.

Sorry dude. Your idea won't fly. But hellz, I'll give you credit for the idea.

I never thought about that point either that the stars would not play. it would be like the preseason- a great chance for The second string guys to make a name for themselves and pointless for everyone else.

Exactly.  There is no silver medal in football either just another loser so why have a bronze.
