    Flawed Bowl-ing plans

    [size=12pt]Flawed Bowl-ing plans[/size]
    By Jason Cole, Yahoo! Sports

    NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's suggestion last month that the league should consider moving the Pro Bowl to the weekend before the Super Bowl has received lukewarm reaction.

    "So what happens to the guys who make the Pro Bowl who are on the Super Bowl teams?" said Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, an eight-time Pro Bowler and member of the franchise's 2000 championship team. "They can't play? No way, that's not gonna fly."

    Goodell's motivation for moving the game up is to generate more interest for the poorly viewed event by capitalizing on the excitement surrounding the playoffs and the upcoming Super Bowl.

    "I don't know what you can do, but it's so hard when players and coaches are worried about getting hurt," Jacksonville Jaguars running back Fred Taylor said...

    That is just as dumb as moving the Super Bowl out of the U.S.

    Has Goodell been hanging out with Travis Henry and Ricky Williams recently?

    Maybe they can turn the pro bowl into a flag football game that way no one will get hurt and they can play it anytime.

    On the radio here in Northern Florida Goodell won the D-bag of the week for even suggesting the craziest things.
