So what's the incentive of this game again? The players receive a free trip to Hawaii, they get paid cash bonuses for winning and losing, oh, and the MVP gets a free car on top of all of that. Out of control.
I'm sure this has been discussed ad nauseam, but there needs to be some sort of incentive for the team to win besides cash. At least in MLB the winning team grants that division home field in the World Series.
This game only exists for 2 reasons: it is an opportunity for NFL execs to go to Hawaii for free and get some really good golfing, snorkeling, drinking and fingerbanging in and it is another game they can make a ton of cash on with TV rights, sponsorships etc.
There is no and there will never be any football relevance to this game.
