    I really don't care too much when it is played. I don't think it matters too much to the majority of people out there.

    But I caught the tail end of a PTI segment and they were talking about Colts/Saints players in the Pro Bowl. Don't know what they said but I was thinking of cheesey and more watered down the Pro Bowl will be if SB teams do not participate.

    Imagine a couple teams with 8-10 Pro Bowlers just sitting it out. That's almost 20 players who get the Pro Bowl recognition that don't deserve it. On top of the players who already claim injury to sit out, you could be going 5th or maybe even 6th alternate at a few positions.

    Just kind of sucks for the players who earned an outright nod to go. They don't get any more recognition than a guy who wasn't top 5 worth of going but is.

    Genius move by Goodell, got people who couldn't care less about the Pro Bowl talking about it.

    I don't plan on taking more of a notice when the game is played. It might be on but I won't watch more than a couple minutes.

    I don't think too many of the players on the Super Bowl and Pro Bowl rosters care, since most players don't want to play in the "game" anyway.

    Few fans care becuase few fans watch it.

    Regardless of where and when it's played, the Pro Bowl is far and away the weakest major sport all-star game and really just needs to go away.

    I think the NBA is far crappier. They literally do not play defense. The NFL doesn't allow blitzing but the NBA seriously does not play defense at all.

    And I think there are players who care.
