Governor Calls Pro Bowl “So Stupid”, Catches Criticism | Hawaii ReporterBY EDDIE KIM – Gov. Neil Abercrombie caused a national media firestorm with sharp comments given on Thursday about the NFL, the Pro Bowl and the state’s deal to pay $4 million annually to host the event at Aloha Stadium.
The Pro Bowl is “so stupid”, Abercrombie said, noting that “You can’t do things like give $4 million to a $9 billion football industry and not give money to children.”
“That kind of egregious self-indulgence has to stop,” said Abercrombie. “Four million dollars is a lot of money. That’s the kind of thing you have to look at.”
I for one agree, the NFL should move the Pro-Bowl to a state that isn't lead by a short sighted, incompetent nincompoop.
