The results of the NFL Pro Bowl fan voting have been revealed, and as expected there are some omissions.

Fan voting can be quite a frustrating beast for many sports fans. It's often the case that the most popular players in the league are selected over much more qualified candidates.

It will be interesting to follow the NBA All-Star voting to see if Jeremy Lin makes the West squad with the swell of Chinese voters behind him. It's the reason why Yao Ming was consistently the top vote-getter in the entire league.

In the NFL, however, it's rare that this happens. The fan vote is compiled with that of coaches and players. Each group gets a third of the final vote.

It's a much better and fairer process in trying to sort through the most-deserving Pro Bowlers.

Here are six players that deserved to top the fan vote in their respective positions.
