ProBowl Ruined Forever

At least it's still in Hawaii...

The NFL and the NFLPA have released massive changes to the ProBowl this year. In case you couldn't tell from this article's title, I'm not at all excited. In fact, I'm fairly freaking outraged.

Among the many changes that the NFL implemented this year is the complete removal of the Kickoff. The ball will now be placed at the 25 yard line at the beginning of every Quarter. The Ball will now change possession at the beginning of every quarter as well. The Return Specialist roster position will now be replaced with an extra Defensive Back.

Also, say goodbye to the AFC vs the NFC. There will now be a player draft where Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders ( with the help of some fantasy football nerds from NFL.com and allegedly fans) will pick the teams. I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried. The draft will be broadcast the week before the ProBowl airs which should bring in even more revenue for an organization that clearly and desperately needs more revenue.

Other changes include Game Clock Chaos, Play Clock Chaos, and the addition of Cover 2 & Press Coverage ( except in goal-line situations). All of these changes have been implemented with the intent on making the game more enjoyable for fans. What they have succeeded in doing is changing the game, so much, that it should no longer be referred to as Football. If I were an emo-kid I would be cutting myself right now.
