Who is Goodell kidding? The only way the NFL drops the Pro Bowl is if the ratings drop far enough that the network stops airing the game. Since the ratings for the 2012 Pro Bowl drew 12.5 million viewers which was the lowest rated NFL game of the year, it still out drew the Major League All Star game which was the highest baseball broadcast up until that point in the season.

 

If it were up to me, they never would have played the Pro Bowl in the first place. It’s nothing more than a Hawaiian vacation for a bunch of rich guys who get enough for nothing. But the fans seem to like it and more importantly, it makes money.
