Why do people complain about the Pro Bowl and want it gone?
No ones forcing you to watch it.
I think people like to complain just to hear themselves.If you hate it so much don't watch and stop crying like a baby.Some people DO enjoy watching it.I'll watch any football that is on, whether it is the 35 college bowl games every year, week 3 of the NFL regular season or yes, even the Pro Bowl.
I don't see why it's a big issue. If people don't like all star games then don't watch. The players like the trip to Hawaii as a reward for their success to mingle with other players from around the league. I think they deserve it after what they put their bodies through to play the entire season. It's not different than the lack of effort we see in other all-star games where guys goof around and try not to get hurt.
I didn't watch the Pro Bowl this year, but usually watch the all star games. don't watch basketball as I'm not a fan though, but I do watch their skills competition. Speaking of which, I think the skills competition in the NHL/HR derby in the MLB are the most exciting parts. What happened to the skills competition type thing the NFL did years and years ago? I liked watching those.
As others have said, the AllStar games suck. There is no defense and all offense, but I do like seeing the best of the leagues together in a game.
