Pro Bowl Now An Even Bigger Complete Joke

The rosters for the 2013 Pro Bowl were announced on Wednesday and with it came some surprises of players who will make the trip to Hawaii and others whose season will end this weekend. The biggest shock of it all was that the Kansas City Chiefs and their 2-13 record got five players voted to the Pro Bowl. This ranks way up there on worst sports votes of all-time.

How does a team get three more players into an all-star game than they have wins for the season? I understand Jamaal Charles with the comeback season in 2012 but the rest of the crew has no business being there or Kansas City wouldn’t be sitting on the No. 1 pick in next year’s National Football League draft in all likelihood. Why not just give some teams 12 or 14 players then since they have more wins on the season? I know the fans were voting for a lot of these selections but there are many made by coaches and the players themselves. Who is watching these games with Kansas City that shows five Pro Bowl players?

I don’t get it at all, it is a joke and makes this year’s game even more unbearable than it has been in recent years because of how bogus now the selections are. If someone decides to bow out for the AFC, should they just stick another Chief in there and give them 10 or 11 players by the end? How about we just have the Chiefs play the rest of the NFL in the Pro Bowl instead since apparently they are so good? I will not be watching the Pro Bowl this year.
