I am all for making the Pro Bowl more awful than it already is.

Brothgar 10-09-2013 01:28 AM

I don't really care. I haven't watched a pro bowl in years.

Brothgar 10-09-2013 01:36 AM

Adding this to the more quiet changes might make me watch it at least this year. After that ... we'll see. They've gimmicked me into watching it again.

Those are going to look so awful in Aloha Stadium. Anything that gets the Pro Bowl closer and closer to getting demolished. It's kind of funny how the NFL tries to keep this on life support and will do anything to save it's revenue, despite the fact that the contest is a joke and contradicts it's apparent quest to make the game safer overall. Just got out with some dignity and cancel the event if you are as noble as a league as you claim to be.

They just need to bring back the skills competition and I will care about the Pro Bowl... well kinda.

Raiderz4Life 10-09-2013 10:42 AM

The skill competitions were awesome.

killxswitch 10-09-2013 10:50 AM

It's the Pro Bowl so I don't care.

They still actually play a Pro Bowl game?

Those all sound like deliberate attempts to make the game even more pointless than it already is. Why on earth do they even bother at this point?

I'm interested because there were all things that Roger Goodell has proposed in the past. I always wondered what the NFL would look like if he got his way on everything.

The Pro Bowl is already awful so I don't reallly care.

This is just a bid to make more $$$$.

I don't mind that Nike is doing crappy uniform changes. I just wonder why they chose the colors they chose.

mqtirishfan 10-09-2013 12:43 PM

Yes, because the old Pro Bowl jerseys were so amazing...

BallerT1215 10-09-2013 02:10 PM

Oregon vs. Oregon St.

Should be a dandy.

These new ones make the old Pro Bowl uniforms look like Hall of Fame jackets.

That's a good question. For years we've seen the uniforms reflect the colors of the two conferences, red and blue. Now that the Pro Bowl isn't recognizing specific conference anymore they can do anything.

vikes_28 10-09-2013 02:37 PM

Those uniforms are ugly as ****.

nepg 10-09-2013 03:22 PM

I never watch the thing anyway, but those are pure trash. I never liked Nike getting the NFL contract. They always want to **** **** up. That the NFL allowed Nike to bring Oregon-Oregon State inspired uniforms into their league is insulting to NFL fans, imo.

It's a big middle finger.

How... It's just a uniform color.

DeadEagle 10-09-2013 03:46 PM

Just when you thought the XFL was ACTUALLY dead...... :facepalm:

Brown Leader 10-09-2013 04:17 PM

I don't think they're that bad. I could get to like them. I bet they had some nice helmets to go along but had to scrap them after the no change lid rule a few weeks ago.

FlyingElvis 10-09-2013 04:25 PM

:facepalm:


Skills competition would bring me back. The game is bad and these uniforms are worse. The fantasy draft gig is a cool idea but nothing will save the pro bowl except the skills competition. That won't really save the pro bowl, per se, but it will help the ratings.

vikes_28 10-09-2013 04:29 PM

Some of the new uniforms that Nike is putting out are great. It took a while, but seattle's uni's grew on me and I like them quite a bit, especially the all gray. I like Minnesota's new ones, and miami's new uniforms/ logos are pretty great as well. I was like WTF to Jacksonville's, and more recently these uniforms. Oh well. It's just the pro bowl. when more uniforms like this start popping up int he NFL is when I will be annoyed with Nike. For now, I am fine.
