Roger Goodell says Pro Bowl's future is in doubt

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says that if the Pro Bowl doesn't get better in the near future, it could be the last of the league's annual showcase in Hawaii, reports NFL.com.

Goodell made his comments during Sirius XM's "Town Hall with Roger Goodell" on Monday and said that he was "leaning" towards eliminating the league's All-Star game earlier this offseason before players stepped in and kept the game going.

"The players asked if they could take another crack at it to try to work to get the game more competitive," Goodell said. "Obviously, I support that. But if we can't accomplish that kind of standard, I'm inclined not to play it any more."

In last season's game, which the AFC won 59-41, The Associated Press categorized the game as players "hitting each other as though they were having a pillow fight."

The next Pro Bowl will be held at Aloha Stadium, Honolulu, Hawaii on Jan. 27, 2013.
