Default Will Pro Bowl sell out?

What amazes me is the allstar MLB, NHL, NBA, etc. games all sell out. The NFL Pro Bowl has the sound of crickets. Lots of empty seats in Hawaii so why not have the game elsewhere? I still think the game would be played like a practice, but people might want autographs. How about at PBS?

If they made it a series of compititions and a short all out scrimmage afterwards it would probly come off better than the joke it is now.


Although as long as Atkins is making ProBowls the NFC OL's are gonna have to work hard.

It doesn't sell out because the players are performing at half speed so that injuries are limited. Not many people want (or can afford) to pay to go see the pro bowl.

Much cheaper to sit on my couch, grab a bite to eat and enjoy the game at home and possibly have a better experience.

I think they should make it where the Superbowl winning team plays the probowl collective team. I think it would sell alot more tickets.

Why would anyone want to come to Cincinnati right before February when they could go to an awesome vacation spot like Hawaii? Cm'n on dude.

I didn't hear a peep of complaint this year about someone being overlooked. Every season, it seems someone is griping.

Maybe we're at the point, finally, where no one really does care, especially after that fiasco last year.

probably not. Why would i pay hundreds of dollars for a ticket to see a game of flag football?

Dalton is not the problem. Sometimes I think the only reason people gripe about him is because they have nothing better to do or simply like to read the word of their own writing, similar to when people complaining just to hear the sound of their own voice.
