Does anyone actually watch this game? I know I haven't in many years which is weird since the All Star game for Baseball is always so good and enjoyable.

The winner of the baseball All Star game doesn't get home field advantage anymore. Just a better game though and the events leading up to it.

They need to have a day of contests.

Straight race, shuttle races, relay races.

Quarterbacks competition win longest toss, most accurate, trick throws, etc.

Lineman have lifting and eating competitions.

Kickers are the targets for throwing events. Hands tied behind their backs. They’re allowed to dodge.

Last Pro bowl I watched seemed like they didn't want to get hurt and the game was so boring.

Most pro bowls have alot of empty seats.....Football is a tough sport to have an all star type of game. No one wants to play 100% and risk injury......

Probowl sucks but I blame the league and the owners... I wouldn’t be out there risking millions either...
No guaranteed contracts means it’s all on the player with no financial risk to the franchise...JuJu walked out of today’s game injured... no idea how severe but if it ends up being serious then it could cost him millions in his next contract talks... to a guy on reasonable rookie contract, it could be the difference between being set for life or out of the league in 4 or 5 years

completely agree with just having some sort of competitions, a lot more people would be more interested in it. i dont watch hockey year round but the skills comp is always amazing to watch. love the Allstate game in the MLB as just a better game as played. i get the lack of desire to crush someone on the NFL pro bowl as not worth the risk and just for fun but it does make it a little less exciting, but understandable. should take that into account about how to better promote.

NFL should just award players as being "Pro Bowl" and skip the game. I'd rather watch paint dry than watch that BS.
