NFL fans don't appear to be too happy with the state of the league's Pro Bowl contest.

The AFC is currently leading the NFC, 20-7, late in the fourth quarter at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida.

The game is, well, a joke - but you probably knew that already.

This year, we've had a couple of star wide receivers (JuJu Smith-Schuster, Keenan Allen) suffer scary knee injuries.

We've also had a trio of star running backs playing defense and a wide receiver recording an interception.

NFL fans have been taking to Twitter throughout the contest to express their frustration with the state of the game. Of course, there's no real way to fix the meaningless game. "Preseason is trash. Pro Bowl is trash. Theres no possible way to make no stakes football interesting. Football's entire allure revolves around the mythology of these gladiators putting their bodies on the line in their quest for glory.If thats removed, football just isnt appealing," one fan tweeted.

Unless, of course, we maybe went to this...

Still, the game isn't going away anytime soon. Why? Because it still pulls massive TV numbers. "The Pro Bowl drew 8.6 million viewers last year for ESPN/ABC. They will never end this game," Richard Deitsch tweeted.

Of course, most of the people criticizing the game are watching said game on TV.
