The Pro Bowl possibly saying Aloha Hawaii and moving to AZ


I was reading a new article on NFL.com (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap2000000329238/article/nfl-in-talks-to-move-2015-pro-bowl-to-arizona) and with so much going on in news as way of the combine and pre-draft mocks, this has slipped through the cracks. It does however look as though the NFL is giving serious consideration in moving the Pro Bowl if not Arizona then at least somewhere state side that has warmer weather in late January for 2015 and beyond. It looks as the reason for moving is to lure in more players that would normally opt out, personally I think that is a bunch of bull and that the move is more for the fans. As it is less costly for the average fan to come to the game, then it would be to travel to and stay in Hawaii (This also saves the league millions in revenue. They have to line those pocket books somewhere, right?). Moving the game makes a lot of sense instead of only 50,000 fans in Aloha Stadium sitting in attendance, U of P could expand up to a little over 72,000 for the big game allowing for more fans to attend. Hell, if the game did move to the valley I would even drag my butt down from Prescott and see the game if I were to get some tickets. The big picture however is that it would be an extra source of revenue for the State not to mention the boost for valley businesses. We all know there have been some major changes to the game already in the fact that the game is no longer AFC vs NFC and is operated now by a draft system. So what do you all think about one more possible change to the game? Personally, I would like to see the game come to Arizona as it does help fans to be able to go to the game and the boost to the local economy is always a nice plus. I think the only other place I would like to see the game travel to is Las Vegas as that would make for a nice venue as well.
