  • Although Hawaii does not have an NFL team of its own, the Pro Bowl games played there from 19802009 were still subject to the NFL's blackout policies, requiring the game to be blacked out within the state of Hawaii if all seats were not sold out by the specified 72-hour deadline.[10][11]

  • Because ABC Sports had rights to both the Pro Bowl and the NHL All-Star Game, through their association agreement with ESPN, from 2000 through 2003, excluding 2002, ABC aired both games on the same day. ABC dubbed these doubleheaders as “All-Star Sunday”.
  • In 20042006, ABC (who by the early 2000s, had been suffering through several years of dismal ratings) sold its rights to the Pro Bowl (which had been part of the Monday Night Football package since 1995) to sister network ESPN. In those years, the ESPN Sunday Night Football crew covered the game. Prior to the game being moved to ESPN, ABC considered moving the game to Monday night.
  • Under the eight year television contract beginning in 2006, the network that broadcasts the Super Bowl would also get the Pro Bowl. Typically, CBS and Fox would utilize their "B" or "Number 2" broadcasting crew.[citation needed]
