    All-Star Games ?? Are they a Waste ?

    I know Most Gamblers don't care for them.

    Should they Get Rid of them ?

    Not saying they shouldn't have an Break, But I think they should get rid of the Games.

    Just My 2cents

    Agree with WNO. The pro bowl is a waste. Nobody cares.

    I like the NBA weekend and MLB all star game

    In sports with higher injury risks I don't see the point since the players don't try hard anyway.
    PM me if you have any questions about SportsOptions.

    The NBA weekend is exciting because you have many others involved in the entire process.

    They could replace the NFL with a NFL oldtimers game like baseball.

    Have to agree with some above that the NFL All-Star game is the primary one that they should do away with..

    All-star games are practically the ONLY games I watch. I like to see the best athletes compete on the field at the same time. To me, regular seasons, playoffs..etc are a bore, as you are not seeing the best the sports have to offer. NHL All-star weekend is to die for. And if you can't get excited for the Pro Bowl, then you'd better check your pulse.

    I can't believe nobody touched on the obvious.
    As long as AS games makes money, they ain't going anywhere.
    Baseball 3 day all star extravaganza last summer brought in beau coup money to NYC.

    It's all about money. All-star games ain't gonna go anywhere. I always thought it would be cool to figure out some sort of reward for the division/league/conference that won the all-star game across the sports. I'm not sure what would be appropriate, but it would sure as hell make things more interesting if there was something at stake.

    Voted for don't care. But there is a lot of people that enjoy all the festivities that go along with the games and not just the games themselves.

    The only one that is any good is the Baseball All-Star Game.



    I think they should hold the NBA All-Star Game in Vegas every year.

    I loved it when the fucking thugs took over Las Vegas and people were afraid to even come out of thier rooms.

    I have a good friend that lives in Vegas and he told me some stories about what happened there during the All-Star Game. Unbelievable.

    I always enjoy the MLB/NBA festivities and the game itself. However, the probowl needs to go. Simply a snoozer.
