Did anybody actually watch it?  I have always thought that game was worthless...but at least in the past players were playing for NFC vs AFC pride of their conference.  But not that its just completely randomized...seriously?   IMO they should just get rid of the game itself and have "pro bowl" just a title title.  Football is agame of scheme...and when you take the players who had the best stats..often because of the scheme they played in, and how well they played their assigned roll, and just place them into some generic game that doesn't mean shit..It just seems pointless to me.

Pro-bowl is an excuse for the non-for-profit organization to send it players to Hawaii.

What is this pro bowl you speak of?

I thought we were talking about a new style of toilet.

Much better then recent years.  There have been some big hits by people who normally play on the same team, it's been pretty amusing.

Better all-around effort tonight.

They showed some clips from past ones. This one seemed to have some decent hits compared to them but still not like a regular game. I still got bored.

Watched the first half.  It was a lot better than it has been the past several years.

They should make them bowl at a bowling alley.

Fucking ridiculous marketing gimmick. Shameful how pathetic the NFL has become.

Had some free (good seat) tickets but opted not to, was kinda icky weather. Did watch a bit on the tube and it was certainly better then years prior.

This^^^^^^

It's a joke really. No intensity...plus some of the best players aren't there.....

Because they're Superbowl bound.

Maybe in college I could see your point, not the NFL.

I watched a little bit of it, just cant seem to get into it much.
Link Posted: 1/27/2014 2:34:34 AM EDT


I had put it on for a few minutes and they kept going on about how the one guy from Cleveland had put a hit on his teammate. I was wondering WTF was going on.

Now I know.

I didn't watch. They should just play flag football. It would be more entertaining.
Link Posted: 1/27/2014 2:47:12 AM EDT
I had no idea it was on
Past pro bowls sucked so I probably didn't miss much.

So how did you come to that conclusion?

Absolutely, positively had zero interest in that thing.

Actually, the combined worth of all the NFL teams is about $30 billion. That's just the teams' values, that doesn't include TV contracts and merchandising.
It's the most lucrative sports league in the world.
