The Pro Bowl is an interesting little event isn’t it?

Before last year, nobody really cared about it anymore, mainly because it had turned into a game of touch football. But changing the format to an unconferenced one helped ratchet up the intensity of the game last year, which helped the event gain a little more attention. Now it looks like things will be changing again, although not for another year.

If I were a Pro Bowl NFL player, I wouldn’t really like this change. Based on what the players say, the game being played in Hawaii is part of the fun. Being able to take a vacation to Hawaii after a long season is a big reason why they actually go. But who wants to go to Arizona for a vacation? Probably not too many NFL players. We’ll see how the change affects the game.
