Pro Bowl talks delayed by war

Advertiser Staff

State negotiations to land a better deal for the rights to host the NFL's Pro Bowl have been delayed for at least several weeks as local tourism officials assess the effect of war on tourism.

The Hawai'i Tourism Authority originally planned to discuss the issue with the NFL during an owners' meeting this week.

"We need to get a better idea of what's going to happen as the war progresses before we sit down with the NFL," said Rex Johnson of the Hawai'i Tourism Authority.
