Bart Scott opened up today, talking about a variety of subjects, including commissioner Roger Goodell, and his stance on the Pro Bowl. He feels that the commissioner should leave it alone, that it is important to keep:

“It’s an All-Star game, it’s not about the game it’s about the festivities,” Scott said. “It’s about the fans being able to get close to the players and be there during the week to see the events they do. The game is just a cherry on top.  “What are you going to put on the line for it? Who wants to get hurt the last game of the season and spend their whole vacation rehabbing? What do you expect. It’s about the festivities.

Bart feels that the commissioner has no place getting rid of the game, and says the game will be there “before” and “after his reign”.  Scott says they should improve the festivities and/or the weekend, and to leave the game alone.
