NFL Hopes To Make Decision On Future Pro Bowls By April; Game Hinges On Player Effort

FLIP THE SWITCH: In Honolulu, Dave Reardon writes to the NFL Pro Bowlers, "Enjoy. It could be the last go-round for your all-star game if you don't knock each other's blocks off out there at Aloha Stadium on Sunday. Unlike all the other games, where you have to play nice-nice." This has to be "confusing and difficult for the players." Football "isn't an endeavor where you can turn the intensity up and down at will and still provide a genuine and entertaining product." Goodell "won't pull the plug on the Pro Bowl until a lot more TV viewers do." If it "does survive, I doubt the Pro Bowl gets moved from Hawaii again in the near future" (HONOLULU STAR-ADVERTISER, 1/23).
