The word is that in spite of listening to multiple options for improving the game NFL Commish Roger Goodell is leaning towards scrapping the game altogether:
Sources say that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who has previously voiced his displeasure with the lack of competitiveness of recent Pro Bowl games, is strongly considering suspending this year's game, sources say.
Beyond 2013, another league source believes the Pro Bowl is "DOA (dead on arrival)."
If the game is suspended, the league still would have a Pro Bowl balloting process to identify the season's top players and would direct teams to negotiate Pro Bowl clauses into player contracts and to honor Pro Bowl incentive clauses to avoid any serious conflict with the NFL Players Association. Those players also likely would be honored in some fashion during Super Bowl week.
I'm all for scrapping the game but not sure about what should be done in its place.
