Pro Bowl Frienships

Posted on Monday, January 30, 2012 in Uncategorized

Yesterday the National Football League (NFL) held their annual all-star game known as the Pro Bowl.  Players are voted into the Pro Bowl by the coaches, the fellow players, and the fans through an online ballot. 1

The Pro Bowl has different rules from other NFL games to make the game safer. 2

No motion or shifting by the offense
Offense must have a tight end in all formations
Offense can’t have 3 receivers on a side
Intentional grounding is legal
Defense must run a 4-3 at all times
No press coverage except inside the 5 yard line
No blitz
Not allowed to rush a Punt, PAT or FG attempt
No calls can be challenged

Challenged

Yes, “No calls can be challenged”, regardless how bad a referee’s call might be it’s unchallengeable.

I’ve made many mistakes in my life.   Our mistakes cannot be challenged and corrected.  Most of my mistakes have affected my relationships with family and friends.

This week I’m challenging myself to apply five friendship principles from Alan Loy McGinnis’ book “The Friendship Factor” that I’m suggesting are part of Pro Bowl friendships. 3

Locate The Trouble Spot

Look back. Try to assess what has gone wrong.

How did we get into this mess?
Where did the misunderstanding or conflict begin?
What solution were you looking for?
What did you hope would happen?

Most mistakes I’ve made with good intentions but misguided logic.
