In their never-ending effort to make the Pro Bowl something fans actually want to watch, the NFL is reportedly considering reworking the event so it’s “more like a game show,” according to ProFootballTalk.com.
This would include having incentives available to players throughout the game in order to, according to the NFL Network’s Albert Breer via PFT, “make it so every single minute of the game has some sort of thing that’s going to keep fans interested and engaged.”
The idea is that since no one really takes the game seriously as is, they might as well drop the charade of treating it like an actual football contest. Breer went on to say that the league doesn’t “feel the need to keep the integrity of what a normal football game is.”
