The National Football League isn’t used to putting on a bad show. But that’s exactly what they did in the Pro Bowl two weeks back in
Hawaii and now NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is considering dropping the game.
Goodell told ESPN Radio that he is disappointed in the quality of Pro Bowl and changes must be considered,l perhaps even dropping the game altogether.
Goodell said this year’s Pro Bowl wasn’t “the kind of football we want to be demonstrating to our fans, and you heard it from the fans, the fans were actively booing in the stands.”
Goodell spoke with the NFL Players Association about his disappointment in the game. He said, “We are going to either have to improve the quality of what we are doing in the Pro Bowl or consider other changes, or even consider eliminating the game if that is the kind of quality of game we are going to provide.
In the game, the AFC won 59-41 and both sides seemed dis-interested in playing any defense at all.
The performance even drew the criticism of Green BayPackers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers even went as far as saying some of his NFC teammates embarrassed themselves.
