Hawaii Gov. Makes Conciliatory Remarks As State Negotiates With NFL To Keep Pro Bowl

SWITCHING COURSE: In Honolulu, Dave Reardon writes the "off-field action is a lot more serious than anything you'll see from the players at practices or even at Aloha Stadium this Sunday." Abercrombie has "already reversed his field a few times, mixing stiff arms and hip fakes." But Reardon asks, "Is he making any positive yardage?" Reardon: "I just can't see the NFL caving, not when it looks like a high-speed game of chicken -- with Abercrombie in that little yellow Checker cab he used to campaign in, going up against NFL commissioner Roger Gooodell piloting the Madden Cruiser." Reardon notes in a few hours, Abercrombie had "once again gone from kicking okole to kissing okole." Shifting course is "often good and often necessary." Reardon: "But unless we don't want future Pro Bowls, we can't afford any more public changes in direction from our top elected official" (HONOLULU STAR-ADVERTISER, 1/25).
