WTF? Pro Bowl ‘clown show’ features NFL star wide receiver Stefon Diggs kneeling behind cheerleaders

The NFL had a problem with its Pro Bowl, in the sense that no one watched the annual game or paid attention to the outcome. There were also concerns about players injuring themselves in a full-contact matchup that was largely meaningless.

Unfortunately, in the eyes of some, the solution Commissioner Roger Goodell served up on Sunday is not likely to help because it looked more like a “clown show.”

Case in point, Buffalo Bills star wide receiver Stefon Diggs participated in a stunt where he lined up behind a group of cheerleaders and sprinted to a trampoline, bouncing through billowing smoke to try to catch two balls that were thrown at him almost simultaneously.

And while Diggs failed to catch either ball in the attempt above, in another take he not only caught both balls but also caught plenty of attention after crouching behind the cheerleaders.

The player can be seen donning a mask as he kneeled down, the camera angles doing him no favors as it shows his close proximity to the…uh, backsides of the cheerleaders — as seen in the clip below, Diggs scores this time around:

The reaction to the stunt was predictable, albeit a little surprising considering how “woke” Commissioner Goodell is:

The NFL announced in September 2022 that its annual showcase of its top stars was “undergoing a transformation in 2023,” a move the league explained was prompted by players’ concerns.

“All of this is intended to create a fresh take on what had become quite stale,” the NFL said. “At its core, the purpose of the Pro Bowl is to show off the abilities of the best football players on the planet. But with the game comes a risk of injury, and the top athletes in today’s game are understandably unwilling to give it their all in a game that matters for nothing but, well, bragging rights.”

The Pro Bowl Games consist of a multifaceted skills competition highlighted by a number of seven-on-seven flag football games. All Pro Bowl players are required to participate and scores from the various competitions and games are complied to determine a Pro Bowl Games champion. For their participation, members of the winning team receive $84,000 and members of the losing team get $42,000.
