Pro Bowl faces axe if not improves quality, says NFL commissioner Roger Goodell – NFL News
The poor quality of the Pro Bowl game has come into the limelight again and the National Football League (NFL) has started weighing seriously if let the event continue in the future.
Almost all football circles have questioned the credibility of the game in the face of its deteriorating quality and the NFL’s commissioner, Roger Goodell, has given a final warning to its organizers to either improve its quality or face axing of it in the
"I really didn't think that was the kind of football that we want to be demonstrating for our fans," Goodell said. "And you heard it from the fans. The fans were actively booing in the stands. They didn't like what they were seeing."
The organizers of the event had earlier come under fire over compromising on the quality of game and asked by fans and other segments of the football community to stop holding of the event. They also believed that having an event like Super Bowl there was
no need of a pro bowl game parallel to it.
Taking a note of the criticism, the League’s office has finally spoken of their concerns about the poor show-off, asking the organizers to work on bringing about progressive changes in the event so that it becomes more competitive and thrilling.
"We're either going to have to improve the quality of what we're doing in the Pro Bowl or consider other changes or even considering eliminating the game if that's the kind of quality game we're going to provide," Goodell said.
The Pro Bowl game features top notch players, who are selected into the game from all or most of the 32 teams around the NFL,  and the participation in the event, which once was considered to be of supreme quality, affects their rating, overall.
There are many players who have been playing the game almost every year on regular basis and are rated high in the league. The recent criticism on the quality of the game has brought down a negative impact on the players, and they have become more considerate
of their profiles and seek to avoid participating in it.
This is something has now been noticed by the NFL and its boss has expressed of his displeasure over the negativity and disappointment around it.
He said that the NFL will ensure that the competitiveness of the event remains intact in the future or will else close down it. If it goes down will be an end of the great era and might disappoint many of its followers.
NFL Players Association (NFLPA) has pointed out at the similar concerns.
Its spokesman George Atallah said via his Twitter account that the players don't want to lose the Pro Bowl from the annual schedule.
