(SportsNetwork.com) - When it comes to the Pro Bowl, its time to tap out. And pulling the plug on the NFLs All-Star game wouldnt exactly be comparable to Daniel Cormier begging off to Jon Jones on the UFCs biggest stage. Ending this fruitless exercise would be more like a tree falling in the forest and its not going to spark any meaningful debate with the dozens and dozens who actually still care about it. Interestingly it was Andy Daltons Pro Bowl recognition on Tuesday that set Twitter off as if an average quarterback playing in a meaningless football game is some kind of calamity. The laughable aspect of Daltons inclusion to the detractors is the fact that he was the seventh alternate at his particular position, a development that really highlighted the ridiculousness of the process. Originally, six QBs were named to the Pro Bowl and just two remain from that pool, Andrew Luck and Tony Romo. Ben Roethlisberger and Peyton Manning were the first to drop out due to injury and top alternate Drew Brees was tabbed to replace Big Ben. Philip Rivers was next in line to take Peytons place but the veteran Chargers star begged off due to his own injury. Third alternate Russell Wilson is busy with Super Bowl business so the fourth option, Detroits Matthew Stafford, got Mannings spot. When the Patriots won the AFC Championship Game last Sunday, that took Tom Brady, who was part of the original six, out of the equation and No. 5, Atlantas Matt Ryan, stepped up. It was only a matter of time before likely MVP Aaron Rodgers would throw his get-out-of-jail-free card into the middle of the table because of his high- profile calf injury and that domino fell Tuesday, making room for Baltimores Joe Flacco expect for the fact January Joe had no interest because his wife is expecting their third child. And thats how you end up with the seventh alternate playing quarterback in the Pro Bowl. Im expecting my invitation on Saturday. While Daltons presence magnifies the nonsense that is the actual game, the real jump-the-shark moment for the Pro Bowl came last year when the NFL pulled the plug on the traditional conference format to cater to the millennial audience with a fantasy football for real mentality. These days players are assigned to two teams through a draft and this year Pro Football Hall of Fame receivers Cris Carter and Michael Irvin are serving as alumni team captains for their Pro Bowl squads -- Team Carter and Team Irvin. Fellow Hall of Famers and former teammates John Randle (Team Carter) and Darren Woodson (Team Irvin) serve as defensive co-captains and the ex-Vikings and former Cowboys handled the draft process while being assisted by two active player captains and the winner of the NFLs Fantasy Coach of the Year program. Full disclosure forces me to admit a deep dislike for fantasy football, an activity thats lone contribution to society in my mind is FXXs laugh-out- loud sitcom The League. However, it would be disingenuous to say fantasy hasnt proven to be a cash cow for the NFL and everything from the Red Zone channel to rule changes skewed toward the offense have been put in place with an eye on picking the pocket of the short-attention-span crowd. And from a purely business perspective its a sound short-term strategy. On an average week, Ill do about a dozen radio hits across the country and the who should I play this week people now far outnumber the astute football fans, who are actually invested in the strategy of the game. Catering to the least common denominator, though, is never the long-term solution because theyre moving on quickly and not really invested in the product. Even fellow fantasy fans have no interest in watching one of their own live out his wet dream while Rich Eisen pretends its relevant. Which brings me to my biggest fantasy, halting the goofy game known as the Pro Bowl. Adidas Superstar White Australia .

Coming off a 6-0 drubbing at Chelsea on Saturday, Arsenal endured another demoralizing result after rallying for a 2-1 lead -- only to concede a fluke equalizer.LONDON -- Tottenham has faced a barrage of criticism this week from FIFA, players unions and medical experts over the clubs handling of goalkeeper Hugo Lloris head injury during a Premier League match. On Wednesday, Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas hit back. In a passionate defence of himself and the London clubs medical staff, the Portuguese coach rebuked the "incompetent people" who have attacked Tottenham for allowing Lloris to continue playing after being briefly knocked unconscious against Everton on Sunday. Villas-Boas was particularly unhappy that club doctor Shabaaz Mughal and physio Geoff Scott have taken some stick. The pair played key roles in saving the life of Fabrice Muamba, who suffered an on-field cardiac arrest while playing for Bolton against Tottenham in an FA Cup match in 2012. "I find it extremely disappointing that two people -- a great doctor and a great physio, who saved the life of Muamba -- were heavily put into question by lots of incompetent people, with absolutely no experience on the pitch, no experience in the action, no experience in the moment," Villas-Boas said. "That is extremely serious and disappointing." Lloris was knocked out when his head smashed innto a knee of Romelu Lukaku as the Everton striker chased down the ball in the 78th minute at Goodison Park.dddddddddddd Lukaku didnt escape Villas-Boas wrath, either. "I find it remarkable as well that nobody has dedicated themselves to find out if the player could have avoided the keeper and Im disappointed that Lukaku hasnt contacted Hugo," Villas-Boas said. "I dont question Lukakus integrity or human side, I have maximum respect for him and I think he has for me, but from all this excitement from something that is so negative Im surprised no time was lost to study this. I dont want to question Lukaku, hes a young player, wonderfully gifted but I think he could have jumped over Lloris." FIFAs chief medical officer, professor Jiri Dvorak, said Lloris "should have been substituted" while the FIFPro players union said Villas-Boas and his staff had "failed to protect the goalkeeper." Brain injury charity Headway has also been critical. "My medical department has followed the Premier League guidelines for this type of situation," Villas-Boas said. Lloris is in contention to play for Tottenham in its Europa League match against Sheriff Tiraspol on Thursday. ' ' '
