Who watches the Pro Bowl?

In Uncategorized on January 26, 2013 at 1:58 PM

As the NFL’s biggest game if the year approaches, I felt that I should share a few thoughts on the subject.

Right out of the gate, I have to ask who watches it? It used to be held the week after the Super Bowl, but a few years ago, Roger Goddell changed it to to the week before, and moved it out of the state of Hawaii. I feel that no one watches it, because no one cares. The big teams, who play in the Super Bowl are not only not playing, they aren’t even in the same town.

When it was held after the “Big Game”, the broadcasting station saw viewership drop. Then the change to before the Bowl happens, and the players don’t even act like it matters, because it doesn’t. It is just an excuse for the the NFL to milk more money from their fans, and it can say that they have an All-Star game.

Several reasons for the lack of support could be that, A, your stats don’t matter anymore, and B, if you where a good player, you and your team would be in the Super, and not the Pro Bowl. Not to mention that no one cares about the Pro Bowl because they are only watching the Super Bowl for the commercials. OK, not everyone will watch for that, but the true fans will watch for the game. I myself may watch the Super Bowl, if for no other reason, than to watch the Ravens and harass my brother. That is, of course unless the NHL decides to broadcast a better game at the same time. If thus where the NHL’s Winter Classic, which is held on New Year’s Day, there would be no Doug that I would be watching that.

Will you be watching the Super Bowl, or even the Pro Bowl? Either way, comment and let me know.
