    This is the same kind of thing. But since there is a game played, I think they better at least attempt to make plays or no one will watch. I'm not sure who watches it now...
    But having said that, how do you explain that it was the most watched of all the All Star games and was a ratings success? People can't get enough of the NFL.

    That is very true. Sunday Night Football just overtook American Idol as the highest rated television show in America. I think we die hards hate the Pro Bowl, I don't think I've seen it in 20 years, but the casual fan is going to watch.

    I think it's the 'celebrity' affect that has people watching it. not sure. But no doubt it's being watched, just not by me

    Please, tell me these "free rides" they receive in life? They dont get health care after retirement, they suffer the worst injuries out of any professional sports industry and they also have the lowest salaries out of nearly every professional sports league in the country...when the NFL is the largest professional sports league in the country.

    I hear ya but Silvers point remains valid free ride or no free ride. Honestly, I really don't need to watch a bunch of rich athletes yucking it up in paradise and playing halfassed football. Right now the winners get 40k the losers get 20k each. If you wanna make it interesting then get some company to pony up say an additional 25 million to plaster their name everywhere and let it be winner take all for that 25million.....betcha get some hitting going on then

    Yea I know it will never happen but how fun would a Pro Bowl be to watch were the players played like it meant something

    If the NFL Network aired NFL Players playing Croquet or Backgammon, there would be a fair number of idiots who would watch it just because of that "celebrity" effect. I am also of the belief that at least 80% of them live in Pittsburgh
