NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was about to cancel the 2013 Pro Bowl until NFL players stopped him from doing it.
But it still hasn’t changed the commissioners mind for the future as he is thinking about eliminating future Bowls. Goodell feels the Pro Bowl game is not living up to it’s standards:
“The players asked if they could take another crack at it to try to work to get the game more competitive. Obviously, I support that. But if we can’t accomplish that kind of standard, I’m inclined not to play it any more.”
