Pro Bowl Switching to Fantasy Draft

So for those who haven't heard, the Pro Bowl is ditching the classic NFC-AFC match-up. Voting for the Pro Bowl will remain the same, but the players that make the cut will then be divided into two teams, fantasy draft style.

There will be six total captains (three on each team). These captains will consist of the two players who received the most Pro Bowl votes, two NFL alumni (Deion Sanders and Jerry Rice), and two NFL.com fantasy football champions.

This Pro Bowl fantasy draft will, of course, have its own television show and be made into a much bigger deal than it really is.

Personally, I usually don't watch the joke that is called the Pro Bowl, but I do think the fantasy draft will be at least mildly interesting. I probably still won't watch the actual game, but my interest level in the Pro Bowl has raised slightly.

With the fantasy craze, this new version of the Pro Bowl is sure to draw in some bigger ratings than in years past.

Questions: Does anybody actually care about this switch?

Will you tune into the fantasy draft show?

Will the Pro Bowl be more or less entertaining to watch in your opinion?

Along with the fantasy draft, other rule changes include 2-minute warnings in the first and third quarters (WHY?) and there will be no kickoffs. Further details can be found in the link below:
