Is It Time For The Probowl To Just Die? in Southwest1's Blog A blog by southwest1 in General Posted February 17, 2012 SOMDColtsfan,To answer your question, yes since the Probowl is endorsed by the NFL with Roger Goodell's blessing & approval, not to mention jersey & merchandising sales, an injury suffered by any player on CBA time would be fully paid for by the NFL. Therefore, this injured player is NOT responsible for any medical costs, procedures, or personal insurance deductibles.It is the equivalent to workman's compensation only 1,000 times better than the average common man or woman's company policy. It's like when a state trooper gets shoot on duty & paralysis results. They are financially compensated extremely well for the rest of their natural born lives.These "variables" you speak of are part of the gladiator sport known as professional football sir. If you can't stand the heat get the bleep out of the kitchen. Every athlete knows what they are in for when they sign a franchise contract on the dotted line. This isn't golf, fly fishing, or chess okay. Brutality & physical punishment come with the NFL territory baby.Either buckle your chinstrap for a real Probowl game or dismantle this pathetic game forever in my humble opinion.
