NFL.com news: Goodell says NFL’s all-stars must play Pro Bowl at higher level

With Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers already having decried the lack of effort by his Pro Bowl teammates, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell called for the league’s all-star game to be played at a higher level.

“We’re either going to have to improve the quality of what we’re doing in the Pro Bowl or consider other changes or even consider eliminating the game if that’s the kind of quality game we’re going to provide,” Goodell said Sunday on ESPN Radio’s “Mike and Mike in the Morning,” according to ESPN.com.

After acknowledging that “fans were actively booing in stands,” Goodell implied that the game has to be less about rest and relaxation for the players and more about giving fans what they want. According to the website, Goodell said he has communicated his concerns to NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith.
