Pro Bowl, no mo ... PLEASE!
The Pro Bowl is like a race horse that is past its prime and it's time to put it out to pasture.
No shooting horses or NFL all-stars, please. Let's be critical, but civilized.
Folks, the Pro Bowl passed up "joke" status a long time ago, steamrolled past "trainwreck" and is now simply a black eye for the most popular professional sports league on the planet.
It's an embarrassment to a league that outside of diva receivers and defensive backs with Twitter accounts isn't used to being embarrassed.
There is nothing redeeming or entertaining about watching 70 millionaires - fresh off the beach in Hawaii - half-heartedly run up and down the field for 60 minutes and get $22,500 for LOSING. That's what the Pro Bowl has degenerated to.
The game doesn't include players from the two Super Bowl teams - makes sense not to have any of that talent on the field. The coaches wear ugly shirts and leis, which would be like coaches at the NBA all-star game in Dallas wearing cowboy hats and boots with spurs.
Be done with it, Commissioner Goodell. Nobody cares and nobody will miss it when it is gone.
Mercy! That's what your fans should be yelling having to watch this rubbish annually.
