I am worried that Pro Bowl Rules may become the future of professional football. No blitzing, no rushing the punter, no sacking. A Pro Bowl tackle is now more like a prolonged hug until two guys fall down together. I stayed up late to watch this seasons’s game but switched it off in disgust after one quarter.
I don’t like the direction this scandal is taking. The big guys on the field don’t need the money, and they like the roughness anyway. Let them carry on but without the extra cash.
