    dumb idea IMO, what if someone in the superbowl is in the probowl they dont get to go.... you would think after a superbowl win a nice trip to honolulu would be nice

    I think after the Superbowl win you'll be more than happy to pay your own way to Hawaii. :lol:

    Pro Bowl is unwatchable as it is. Perhaps this will make it a little more interesting. With players who actually might go out there and give a little effort.

    I think it's lame as well.

    I could see players from the two Super Bowl participants withdrawing from the Pro Bowl to avoid possible injury.

    You can count on it, so let's say some 6-8 players per team would be about 14 SB players declining to play, plus add some conference championship participants too bang up to play

    Bank on it. If I was a coach/gm of one of the SB teams, no way in hell would I let any of my players go near the probowl.

    I see no problem with the change, for those of you who don't watch it then it shouldn't matter to you because you don't care.

    Not a good idea. But who cares, the pro bowl is a waste of time.

    You can bank on every probowl player that is in the SB will NOT play the probowl game.

    If I was a coach/gm/owner of a SB team, it would not just be a NO, but a Fuk NO!

    Probowl sucks at the current time of year, and I never watch it anymore. I am curious to see if it is any better the week before the SB. Can't hurt to see. :icon_shrug:

    I think this may turn out to be a very good idea, we'll see. If nothing else it will be a financial boon for the host city.

    Pro Bowl can't get much worse IMO, so I understand tweaking aspects of it.

    Not a bad idea. I've watched most pro bowls. They can be exciting. Not to mention many super bowl players, and teams that make it deep inti the platoffs often decline the invite or simply don't play choosing to take a break instead.
