Pro Bowl May be Axed says Goodell

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has revealed the Pro Bowl may be no more after the 2013 game because of the “lack of competition.”

Goodell said he had considered axing the All-star game this coming offseason, abortion but the players had asked him to give them another chance to make it better. That was just one of the topics Goodell discussed when he faced 15 fans Monday, vialis 40mg answering questions at SiriusXM radio studios in Manhattan as part of a town hall-style interview conducted by Michael Strahan.

“The players asked if they could take another crack at it to try to work to get the game more competitive, troche ” Goodell said. “Obviously, I support that. But if we can’t accomplish that kind of standard, I’m inclined not to play it any more.”

Lou Imbriano, former Chief Marketing Officer of the New England Patriots, believes the event should be used merely as a warm-up for the Super Bowl.

Speaking exclusively to iSportconnect, Imbriano said: “The NFL Pro Bowl should kick off Super Bowl festivities in the host city during the week prior to the game. It should be looked at more as a fan interactive event where the players showcase their skills, have a “mini game” and interact with fans in various ways.

“There is a value to the league in bringing all it’s super stars together in one place to celebrate the game and their efforts, however the format needs to evolve into more of an entertainment and fan engagement opportunity.”
