Trust me, watching 4 hours of the worst of pro-bowl history would be better than watching 5 minutes of two dudes playing a videogame.

In my fantasy, we would be doing more watching interviews with players and less "watching two dudes playing a video game".

I stand corrected. There is actually something more boring than watching two dudes play videogames... player interviews.

Re: Pro Bowl: Your Thoughts

It comes down to "He was hurt in a meaningless game!" or "They didn't even try!" Damned if you do and damned if you don't. As far as the Saturday to Manning snap I don't see any difference to that and allowing a "suspended" coach to watch his QB get an "all time" record that will be broken next year.

The Pro Bowl is the exact venue for the "last snap" scenario. They were doing it on their own time. They are professional football players aren't they?

Anyone remember this? Screw the pro bowl. Send them to Hawaii and have surf competitions, swimming races, canoe/raft racing, etc.

Saints QB Brees dislocates elbow in Pro Bowl


HONOLULU (AP) Drew Brees lived every player's Pro Bowl nightmare Saturday, dislocating his left elbow on his second series as the NFC's starting quarterback. Brees, who throws right-handed, didn't break any bones. (Posted 2/10/2007)

It's not 'their time' if the fans are paying for the tickets, IMO. You buy a ticket to an All-Star Game, you should get all-star play. They wouldn't allow that kind of stuff during the regular season or playoffs, but you have to endure it for the price of a premium ticket in the ProBowl. I don't agree with it, it makes the game look staged & I would rather just see them stop playing the game.

If you have a situation like Saturday/Manning, Saturday could have retired, signed a one-day contract with Denver & snapped the ball to Manning on one play before retiring if it's that big a deal.
