The decision to give the 2014 Super Bowl to New York would presumably mean the 2014 Pro Bowl would be played in Hawaii, as NFL stars aren’t going to want to travel to a frigid location after the season is over.
But maybe that presumption is incorrect.
NFL Senior VP of Events Frank Supovitz told the New York Post that the Pro Bowl might also be played in New Jersey in 2014.
“You never say never,” Supovitz said. “We haven’t discussed that yet, but it’s definitely within reason. It can’t be ruled out.”
This year’s Pro Bowl was played in Super Bowl host city Miami, but the next two Pro Bowls will be played in Honolulu. If future Pro Bowls are played in the cold, the NFL is going to have an awfully tough time persuading its star players to show up.
