Thursday's Dump & Chase: NFL to Copy NHL All-Star Format

New, comments

The NFL is going to add a fantasy draft element to the Pro Bowl this season, copying a format the NHL has been using the last couple of years. The Pro Bowl is pretty stupid, but here's the problem...so is the game they're copying! I can't stand the fantasy format, but maybe it will work for the NFL, given the popularity of fantasy football. And Leon Sandcastle is going to be involved, which is never a bad thing.
