Is there a good reason why the Pro-Bowl is being played before the Super-Bowl this

year? This means that players selected from the Colts/Saints will not play in the Pro-Bowl. Why have they changed the order of the games?

Not sure but i think it is because they wanted to give the pro bowl more attention.

well there's 2 reasons
1. A failed attempt to get the pro bowl some more attention
2. More hype AFTER the superbowl, so all the buzz the following week won't b about how stupid and pathetic the pro bowl is

From paragraph 3 of wikipedia.org's 2010 Pro Bowl:


The game was moved up in order to prevent a conflict that would have taken place if the game had taken place on February 13 or 14, with the game facing against the NBA All-Star Game, Winter Olympics, and Daytona 500. Due to the change, players from the conference championship teams—the Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints—will not be participating.

They should have never moved the game from Hawaii the week after the Super Bowl. It gave the players a nice perk to look forward to. It gave the fans out there some NFL football to watch. And I always thought it was kind of a nice follow-up to the Super Bowl. I'm not sure why the moved the game to the week before the Super Bowl, other than wanting to offer fans football on what had been a football-free Sunday.

Because people don't want the Bye week between playoffs and superbowl with nothing going on. It is pretty stupid though because none of the people playing in the superbowl will play in the probowl because they don't want to risk getting hurt.
