NFL Pro Bowl

Not sure why they play this. Publicize a list of the All Pros and be done with it. Why risk a serious injury? Of all the major sports this All Star game makes the least sense.
wondering how many players and how much money in incentives some get for "making a pro bowl"? think about that.
What an awful product and I am sure the TV ratings reflected this. I have seen some marketing studies on how to keep this thing going and none of them moved the needle at all. A true flag football game, skills only challenges, playing other team sports like softball, celebrities' added to the rosters, all mean nothing to the average fan. Does anyone here have a suggestion for the weekend before the SB that is based in LV to salute the better players of the year?
