I really don't see a problem with it as it is, and the fans at Aloha Stadium should reconsider why the hell they are booing. The Pro Bowl has NEVER been very competitive and it means nothing. Frankly, I don't think it SHOULD mean anything besides the "just for fun" game that it is and a token reward for the guys that earned their Pro Bowl honors. So what if it's not competitive. If you can't have fun in a festive atmosphere in the Aloha Bowl in beautiful Honalulu without those guys trying to pound each other in a meaningless game that could jeopardize their ability to actually compete in MEANINGFUL games then you are awfully hard to please. Good god, so what if they only give 50%. Enjoy the experience of being around the BEST the league has to offer, soak up some rays and get some autos. For those watching on TV, have you ever really expected a competitive game? Have you ever seen one? Do you every REALLY care who wins? In the past (when they played it AFTER the SB), it was just one last taste of "kinda" football before it was put away for the season. It meant nothing, I expected very little and I enjoyed it for what it was, passing entertainment.
Frankly, I don't think this is a "player" problem as much as it is a "fan" problem.
The Greatest form of revenge is MASSIVE success.
I dont mind it. I just wish it was still played after the SB , not the week before.

I'm getting to that age where a lifetime warranty just doesn't mean as much to me anymore as an afternoon nap.

I have never watched the pro-bowl, I just want to see Bear players on the list, give them a cash prize, and a trophy at a awards ceremony before the SB call it good.
I never liked the Pro Bowl game. Players can get injured. Just hand out the honors and be doen with it.
End the probowl. Have them do drills instead. Add cheerleaders in really skimpy outfits. Sell beer. Proceeds go to cancer.
