Never going to happen!!!!
The nature, history and meaning of the games is totally different.
Getting back to the nature of the thread, what do you expect from an All-Star game? It's a chance for overpaid guys to flaunt their egos and celebrate their bigness in front of the nation.
Correct me if I'm wrong but is it really supposed to be competitive. I thought it was a game for all the best palyers to play together and play a relaxed game for the public. It doesn't mean anything really so why risk injury.
One way to make it more exciting (this is for all you idiots who beleive in the contract year hype) is to offer the players much bigger contracts if they play really well, surely then we would see a good games and players playing hard right?
The All-Star game is nothing more than a glorified photo shoot and that's what it is supposed to be.
