What? Go back to your regularly scheduled reality show.

They already do that with "All Pro", don't they?

I think the only format an All Star game works is in a non-contact sport.

NHL holds a mid-season no defense laugher.

NFL holds an end season no defense irrelevant game that even the players don't want to play, in a state that doesn't have a pro team.

NBA has a mid-season offensively minded showcase game that the fans like and the players want to be in.

MLB has its' game mid-season, the winning league gets home field for the championship.

Its on the big screen here at work so i'm catching what I can between issues.

I think Kubiak and Schiano should have been the coaches this year.

Hey, I liked it. I think it was better than it has been in several years. Sure, there were some major lapses in play, but that is to be expected with the limited amount of prep anyways...

From what little I watched, it definitely wasn't as bad as previous years.

I don't know if seeing Primetime as a greybeard makes me feel older or not.

Sanders and Jerry Rice basically drafted all stars to their team. Fantasy football came to life. No AFC vs NFC.

I think the new format worked and worked well. Close scoring and final minute win. Fun game to watch. You even saw guys from the same team taking cracks at each other.
