Twitter users have a case of Pro Bowl apathy
The Pro Bowl is on. The Grammys are on. The Royal Rumble is tonight. The result? The Pro Bowl is getting blasted on Twitter.
The NFL nearly canceled the Pro Bowl due to a lack of interest from fans and players as well as the cost of the game. After the beating the NFL's version of an all-star game took on Twitter, the NFL may want to reconsider the game. Again.
