Thanks BLBL.

But it's not great news for Hawaii.

They are considering moving it around with Hawaii being one of the locations.

They are also talking about player captains choosing there teams from the entire group of all-pros.

So it would no longer be AFC against NFC. It would be a mixture.

I see no chance of that going over with the fans, though it might work as a novelty for one year.

Years ago the extra $$ for winning the game meant something to the players.

Now with the multi-million dollar salaries, the extra $$ for the players an the winning team is a drop in the bucket.

I recall discussions with you and others around the table a couple years ago about the impact on Hawaii ... whether revenue generated actually off-set the cost of the event.

Well, anyway - there's the announcement.

Was I at that table? By the way, I didn't think that they were going to do away with the AFC vs. NFC format, only that the captains would choose their team mates. Regardless of what the NFL is saying publicly, I think the game will stay in Hawaii.
