The issue is not how entertaining or meaningful the game is. The issue is whether hosting the game has a positive impact on our economy, or not. The analysis of that should not be too difficult.

State of Hawaii wake up. What has been the long term payoff for Hawaii and professional sports having the Pro Bowl here? Does the positives outweigh the negatives? We are a minor league city (maybe not even) that is good for a 1 shot deal a year. Something better than nothing?

Maybe Hawaii should be looking at bringing a pre season pro game here whether it be baseball or football.
