On Wednesday the NFL announced some changes to try and get some interest going again in their All-Star game, the NFL Pro Bowl. The NFL will be taking a page out of the NHL’s handbook and is scrapping the AFC-NFC conference head-to-head game in favor of a fantasy draft or sorts. Captains will pick the 43 representatives of each team regardless of conference affiliations.
The process of choosing Pro Bowlers will change as well. Instead of fans voting for starters in each game their votes will determine who will captain each team. The top two vote getters will captain their respective teams in addition to Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders and two NFL.com fantasy football winners.
