FNN Report: NFL Announces Losers Bowl for Next Year



FNN Sports reporter Jock Strapper filed this report after an NFL press conference ended.

Today the NFL announced a new post-season game called the Losers Bowl. The game will be played on the Sunday prior to the Super Bowl and will replace the Pro Bowl.

In the Losers Bowl, the NFC team with the worst record will play the AFC team with the worst record. Anticipating that a game between the two worst teams won’t draw a wide audience, the NFL placed a degree of importance on the outcome: the winner of the Losers Bowl will be awarded the first two picks in the next draft.

Tomorrow, the TV networks can place bids to carry the game. Bids will start at a hundred million dollars.

The NFL also announced the initial bid price for Losers Bowl ads. The one-hundred-ninety ad slots to be shown during the game will require a minimum bid of two million dollars. If more than one advertiser wants a time slot, it will be auctioned off to the highest bidder.

The NFL said the ad prices were high because the league needed the extra cash to pay all judgements in the lawsuits they have been losing.

  1. The Pro Bowl is lame, so I'd actually watch the Loser Bowl. I'm sure it would garner a lot betting in Vegas - who will be the worst teams this year?

    1. The report neglected to say the Losers Bowl will be played outdoors in a northern stadium like Green Bay, Buffalo or New England.

    2. Here in Canada we watch CFL Canadian football League. BC just signed a new quarterback. Which means Lulay's been put to pasture. Typical mum, I feel bad for him. Is it his fault he's got broken bones? Oh, again, maybe.

  2. LOL. This is an excellent idea. The Pro Bowl is such a waste of time. The players don't even try. People would actually watch the losers bowl.

    1. My husband watches American football sometimes. I get mixed up because the rules are different. Their butts are just as cute tho.

  3. Considering a friend and I were the half-time entertainment for our BC Lions team one year long, long ago, you'd think I would have more interest in football, but..... A Losers Bowl has some appeal. It might even generate a following. LOL!

    1. So I can consider you signed up in advance, Carol? Excellent! LOL

  4. Personally, I believe this idea will be snapped up and run with faster than said two first-draft choices running to cash their signing bonus checks. It's a money-maker for sure! :)

    1. All you folks are witnesses that I had the idea first (just in case the NFL tries to steal it)

  5. I haven't watched the Pro Bowl in years. Worst all-star game in all of sports.

    1. I agree. All of them are bad, but the NFL is the worst

    2. We should all let them know about Hank's brilliant idea.

  6. Oh my- with all the bowls out there, I think this one might actually come about. Someone is going to read this and think- that could work. :)

  10. Lawsuits, lawsuits everywhere. Those can and do get expensive for these leagues and their players.

    1. It's part of a full-employment plan for lawyers

    2. And to think, the players in Canada only make on average, 250,000. Poor dears.

      Delete
    3. Maybe the Canadian players need more lawyers. Especially American lawyers.

  11. Hilarious, Joylene!! Actually, I think I'd like to see that game!!

  12. Hey Joylene!

    How's it goin', eh? Have you missed me?

    Right then, let's see what Hank has been writing on here this time. Actually, Hank, dude, that idea might just work. Or have the two teams fight it out for a relocation to England. Loser has its franchise moved to London.

    I'm outta' here....

    1. Gary, maybe the loser has to play its home games in Bagdad for the next season.

  13. I think this idea could catch on. :) Thanks Hank, for brightening my day. Joylene, you are ever the gracious hostess. Have a great week!

  14. Hmm... I wonder if the next news story will involve Jock Strapper suing his parents for that unfortunate name... ;)

  15. Sue? Don't think you can do that even in the USA where predatory lawyers will take on almost anything

  16. The Losers Bowl! What a fab idea, Joylene. Love it!!
