What Rice is saying is probably true. Rice was a Prima Donna and Egomaniac himself, but he used that to fuel an amazing drive to be perfect on the field.

Rice feels like players aren’t taking the Pro Bowl seriously enough and even though he is a part of the new Pro Bowl changes, he feels the game is doomed.

“You’ve got prima donnas, egocentrics, who act like it’s not an honor,” Rice told USA TODAY Sports. “Plus, they’re thinking, ‘Why should I go and jeopardize what I’m doing?’ But it should be for the fans.

“How can you get the players to recognize that it’s an honor? You’ve got to play your best football in the Pro Bowl. So the spirit of this needs to be changed. I’m not sure that can be accomplished now.”
