This is GREAT news! Screw the Pro-bowl, it's a bigger joke than the NBA all-star game /slam dunk bafoon-athon. In protest, all of our elected players should refuse to participate. I use to go every year, you coudn't pay me to go now. The NFL is not Baseball. The Pro-bowl is an accident waiting to happen, especially now that half of the players are going at half speed. That's when injuries happen. As an aside, Sherm just lost a bit of leverage come contract time (sez the selfish, opportunistic side of me).
Having your views challenged is a lot more healthy than simply jabbering on with people who think exactly the same way as you.
