By now, you’ve probably read or heard about Gov. Neil Abercrombie’s comments made Thursday regarding the Pro Bowl.
My question now: How does NFL commissioner Roger Goodell react (if at all)? As I wrote around the time of the last Pro Bowl, he’s got bigger mahi to fry.
And: Does this make negotiations for Hawaii to host the game beyond 2012 difficult or impossible? … Or, does it give Hawaii a chance to decrease the $4 million annual hosting fee?
It comes down to who needs who more, and if the players — who always say they’re all for keeping the game in Hawaii — get a vote in it.
