The NFL’s Pro Bowl is the appendix of the NFL calendar. Nobody likes it. Nobody watches it. Absolutely nobody wants to play in it. This being the NFL, it would be fair to assume they would keep on having the Pro Bowl while jacking up ticket prices and doing whatever the hell they want, because they’re the NFL and that’s just how they roll. But no! The game could be suspended beginning this upcoming season!
The NFL sees a problem and wisely responds to it. I do not know what to make of this. Maybe they figure this one smart move will cushion the blow when they float the idea of a 20-game regular season or some other nonsense down the line. Who knows? All I know for sure is that now we’re all going to have a sudden opening in our calendar in next year, irritating those who have already planned their Pro Bowl Viewing Parties.
