This has to be seen to be believed. Of course, I’ve never actually seen the Pro Bowl. Is this normal?
Yes, feel free to get out your frustrations about the Pro Bowl. I’m gathering that the ability to so express one’s frustrations is more popular than the Pro Bowl itself.
I must admit to appreciating the ways in which Pro Bowl participants openly mock the Pro Bowl. kissingsuzykolber.uproxx.com/2013/01/the-pr…

I must admit that the Pro Bowl is a supportive evidence of your argument that football is too dangerous. The pro bowl has basketball type scores and crazy kicks like this because none of the players take it seriously. The reason is simple, they are their in Hawaii on an earned vacation, who wants to get injured on vacation?
I enjoy the ProBowl in much the same way the players enjoy the game. Take Jeff Saturday’s final snap to Peyton Manning. You wouldn’t get to see two old pals, who are in different teams, do this in regular season or post-season. It just isn’t done. All these moments would be lost, like tears in the rain.
The NFL has been openly talking about eliminating the Pro Bowl for a while now; the biggest obstacle is that many players have incentive clauses in their contracts that get them extra money if they make the Pro Bowl.
At least they’ve moved it back to Hawaii, instead of the foolish notion of having it in the same stadium as the Super Bowl, just a week earlier.
Why not move the Pro Bowl to the week after the Super Bowl? That way, many of the players in the Super Bowl can go instead of passing on an obvious opportunity to get injured? It won’t hurt the Pro Bowl’s ratings, such as they are; it may even help.
The Pro Bowl used to be after the Super Bowl.
I have never watched a Pro Bowl nor do I ever intend to. That kick is pretty slick though.
