Its all about more money for the league.The NFL has forgotton that the Pro Bowl was to honor outstanding performance by players irregardless of how their teams did in the season.The NFL now wants this game as driving force to bring people to Florida and the mega attractions(Disney & Universal Studios) which have been trying for years to host this game,can you say "kickback". Rather than an event for the Players and their Families the NFL wants them to promote the NFL owners and the monies that the NFL will take in.

Let's all say "Aloha" to the NFL. Our system is driven by capitalism. The NFL is clicking on all cylinders. A highly success product. A lot of tickets are sold, nearly sold out, tv revenue and of course corporate welfare.

Where is Sarah Palin and her fellow Republicans? This is socialism at it worst. Why does a successful capitalism product need a handout of $4 million a year?

I like pro football. It's better than the real wars but greed? The NFL is taken the right course. It's too bad our State Leaders don't know too much about success and money. It's the people who are struggling who need the money not the NFL.

Aloha "Greedy NFL" and don't come back Jack!
