NFL players have promised to make the next Pro Bowl more competitive than previous years, so Roger Goodell, the NFL's commissioner, said they could have it in Hawaii again.
"The players have made it clear through the NFL Players Association that they would like the opportunity to continue to play the Pro Bowl in Hawaii. We will support the players on this initiative to improve the Pro Bowl. We have had many discussions with the players in recent years about the Pro Bowl and they recognize that the quality of the game has not been up to NFL standards. We look forward to working with the players toward the goal of improving the competitiveness of this season's game."
The Pro Bowl was held in Hawaii from 1980 to 2009.
Due to less than stellar ratings and the less than competitive nature of the Pro Bowl, it was moved to a week before the Super Bowl, so people would be more likely to watch it.
The NFL players association president said:
"The players believe that the Pro Bowl is an important tradition. We worked hard with the league to make sure the best players in the NFL are honored for their achievements on the field."
So hopefully the 2013 Pro Bowl will be one heck of a game!
