The AFC won the first ever pre-Super Bowl Pro Bowl 41-34. In a game where everyone tries to avoid injury, long runs and high scores are the name of the game. Football is a hard contact sport, where injury is likely on any play. One misstep, one awkward hit can ruin a player’s night, year or career. So, playing a game that means nothing in a sport prone to injury is not a true game. It’s a shell of a game. Even the players commented that it feels more like touch football than anything. And the outcome means nothing. There’s no advantage to winning the game. At least with baseball’s all-star game, the winning division gets home field advantage in the World Series. While I initially hated the idea, I now follow all-star game wanting to know which division will get the advantage. Football needs to do something different with their version of the all-star game.
