Pro Toilet Bowl
The NFL may as well just not have the Pro Bowl. It is just a waste of time, and wasted effort. It may as well be called to Toilet Bowl, because it has all gone to waste. Now it is being held in Miami, and a week before the Super Bowl. While it was suppose to be a game to anticipate the Super Bowl, instead it is just a wasted attempt to see who players try to get out of playing in the game.
While it maybe considered an honor to be selected onto the Pro Bowl, it does not seem to be that way among the players. For them it is simply a way to earn more money and get higher salaries by saying that they are Pro Bowlers. Half of them try to come up with the lamest of excuses, in order to not have to play. I f a player really is in fact injured they should not have to play, but if they have a dime sized bruise on their leg they should not be able to escape the honor. That is one thing that I do not understand. It should be a honor to make it into the Pro Bowl. You are being recognized as one of the best at your position. Why would you try to escape such an honor. For 30 of the teams at this point the season is over, so you have nothing to really lose. If it is injure that players are worried about look at how few injures players actually get that take longer than a week to get better. Also the players that actually play in the Pro Bowl don't play as hard and physical, for the most part, because they don't want to get injured and they do not want to injure anyone else. Therefore the "game" is pretty much a cat walk for really good Pro football players to be seen by the public. The fact that the NFL put it in Miami and a week before the Super Bowl, in my opinion was a terrible idea. The two teams going to the Super Bowl are most likely going to have quite a few pro bowler on their team and now they will not be able to play in the game because of the slight risk of injury and practices. The NFL is making the Colts and Saints go and see the Pro Bowl I believe. This is honestly just making the Pro Bowl look more pathetic than it already is. Hawaii, by the way, sounded like a better spot for the Pro Bowl. In conclusion, I commend and congratulate those who were voted to be Pro Bowlers and those who are actually participating in the game. For those who are you better have a darn good reason. For those who are just pansy's, you are pathetic and should a decrease of pay since you are already making millions.
