Default Re: The one perfect answer to the Pro Bowl.

Make the entire thing a skills competition, and prescribe each different event the same amount of points (meaning that the linemen will make up the ground they lose in the 40 yard dash in the strongest hit tackle bag challenge).

Each player in the pro bowl gets prescribed a small-middle sized town from somewhere in the USA. The overall winner of the Pro-Bowl earns his representing town a pre-season game for the next year, and $500,000 to a charity of his choice.

Boom - guaranteed viewership in 90 small towns throughout the nation - a chance for the NFL to showcase it's caring side through the player's selected charities and football fans who want to see the players face off against each other are appeased.

Pro Bowl saved.

I'm off to copyright this idea. And get a pair of Mega Watt sneakers saying 'Pay Me Roger' on the heel.
