Pro-bowl idea
#1
I was thinking today about how they have the pro-bowl in Hawaii and nobody is ever in the stands for it.  That got me thinking about how the NFL wants to expand into other markets like England and Mexico.  Given the number of people that have turned out for the games in London this year why not have the pro-bowl in Mexico City?  The knock on Mexico is that they have never been able to decide on whether a regular season game should be played there.  So why not pack one of those Olympic size stadiums to the gills for a pre-season game or the pro-bowl?

I always heard that one of the big reasons some players participate in the pro bowl is a free trip to Hawaii, I don't know if a free trip to Mexico would be as appealing.

It is a good idea though.

They'd probably have more high points if they played in Mexico.
Because I said so.

Instead of Hawaii?

Well as it stands the pro-bowl is pretty much a loss instead of a gain for the league. They have a hard time selling seats and revenues are poor. If they decided to make it a foreign exhibition game they could increase their market share and possibly make some money off the game.

It is an outstanding idea. I am objecting only to the notion that Mexico has better herb than Hawaii.
