The NFL has been trying to tinker with it’s Pro Bowl schedule to try to reinvigorate interest back into the year end weekend celebrating the best players of the previous season. It’s long been viewed as a drag of a weekend that has a meaningless game attached to it. The players usually don’t care at all–and why should they? There’s no point in playing hard and possibly getting hurt all for an exhibition game.
So the NFL has decided to add a little fun this year by implementing dodgeball into the week of festivities leading up to the Pro Bowl game. All the other leagues–the NHL, NBA, MLB– have fun activities that sometimes take the spotlight away from the actual All Star game, like the Home Run Derby and Slam Dunk Contest. We thought we’d have a little fun ourselves and put together a team of six current NFL players that we think would make the best Dodgeball team.
Let us know if you think our team would beat Globo Gym in the comments.
