Pro Bowl TV Blackout
The NFL has issued Hawaii a second TV blackout extension for the Pro Bowl which is due to broadcast this Sunday. If the Aloha Stadium is not sold out by 1130AM on Saturday the NFL will not allow the game to be televised anywhere in the state of Hawaii. As of this morning 1,500 tickets remain unsold which is unusal this close to the event. The only other year that the game did not air due to this blackout policy was in 1982, although it was sold out by kickoff. The Aloha Stadium seats 50,000 people and has been the home for the Pro Bowl since 1980.
