The negative reaction to the most recent Pro Bowl has the leaders of the NFL wondering about the future of the game.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said on Mike and Mike in the Morning (via Adam Schefter) that Goodell and NFLPA chief DeMaurice Smith have broached the possibility of canceling the Pro Bowl altogether.
Informal discussions about ending the game is a long way from actually canceling the game, but it shows that the league knows the product isn’t very good.
Then again, the ratings for the game are very good. That’s why it’s hard to believe the Pro Bowl will be no more.
