ZERO.id – The motivation to play the Pro Bowl: the winning team earns more than the Super Bowl loser!. The Pro Bowl is probably the least important star game of sport in the United States. The NBA, NHL, MLB and even the MLS have a more attractive format for fans and players, since they have something in dispute.
In the NFL, the game of stars is becoming a glorified tochito display combined with a testing laboratory for new rule ideas, but that doesn’t mean that players don’t want to win it; in fact, they have 70,000 reasons to do so.
According to official league figures, the winning team players receive a $ 70,000 bonus, a figure that is more than what the team members who lose the Super Bowl receive, while the Pro Bowl loser receives the Half, $ 35,000.
NFL postseason earnings
- Appearance in the wild card game as a division champion: $ 31,000
- Appearance in the wild card game as a wild card team: $ 28,000
- Appearance in the divisional round: $ 31,000
- Appearance at the conference end: $ 56,000
- Super Bowl Winner: $ 124,000
- Loser of the Super Bowl: $ 62,000
- Pro Bowl Winner: $ 70,000
- Loser of the Pro Bowl: $ 35,000
While it is true that all the way to the Super Bowl can represent a maximum of $ 242,000 to each player (if his team goes through the wild card round as a division champion or $ 238,000 as a wild card), the direct figures are peculiar and for that reason It is that younger players rarely miss the match, since their contracts in their early years are limited since the new collective bargaining agreement entered into force in 2011.
For example, the first selection of 2019, Kyler Murray, is the one that can win the most of that generation of the Draft, with 35.1 million in four years, but those chosen in the third round or later average 1 million annually or less, so 70,000 dollars do not like anything bad.
