I am glad to see the Pro Bowl back in Hawaii. But it is still before the Super Bowl, which keeps key guys from getting to play and now they are going to relax league rules and allow the guys to Tweet away.
From NFL.com “Mobile devices will not be allowed during the game. The NFL said Wednesday it will set up a computer on each sideline where players can use Twitter. The players will be able to tweet from their phones before the game and at halftime.”
The current NFL policy does not allow players to tweet 90 minutes before games all the way until they fulfill their postgame media obligations. NFL officials say the Pro Bowl experiment isn’t being considered for the regular season or playoffs.
Then what is the point? This is just another example of the lack of interest by the NFL in this game. Stop moving the location, put it back after the Superbowl and keep the same rules as regular season.
