Why not play the Pro Bowl the week before the season starts. It would be so much better to end the NFL season with the Superbowl rather than drag it out for one more week. You could then play the ProBowl wherever you liked, or perhaps merge it with the Hall Of Fame Game and move it to Canton, and wrap up the Hall of Fame inductions, Pro Bowl and maybe an all college game into a weekend, with skills contests and what have you.

I can see moving the date. But pleaaaase dont take the Pro Bowl from Aloha Stadium. High School football is played in the same staduim as the Pro Bowl.

Other than the occational concert and Swap Meets, that stadium is useless.

I guess I forgot UH Football...well its not useless, I take that back. Just the nostalgia of holding the Best of the Best in the Best place on earth. Its a natural neutral place to hold this Event.

The Pro Bowl could never be moved to the preseason because nobody would want to play in the game. Under the present postseason format, if someone gets injured in the Pro Bowl, they've got the entire offseason to heal and recondition. You don't have that luxury in the preseason.

The game is a reward and contract bonuses are often tied to it, so you cannot have it before a regular season. Also, who would coach the teams if your idea is set? Coaching staffs are busy making their 53 man rosters.

Orlando attempted to gain the event about 4 years ago, but the NFL strengthened their committment to the Rainbow State.

I would nt mind seeing the game moved to Canton as part of the HOF weekend, but I understand why they wont, and becuse tehy wont it will never be a good game, because no matter what many players will pull out.

When I played in the ProBowl, part of the attraction and excitement was the trip to hawaii. I say kep it there, but move it to the week between the Championship games and the Super Bowl. Dont let superbowl teams have players in it, cause they get their reward by playing in the "big game."

I gotta tell ya, that really cracked me up. I happened to read it on my Blackberry during a dreadfully boring Cabinet meeting. Thanks for making my morning.

By the way, I sent a link to this to a couple of my fellow Apollo astronauts.
