Ninjames' Note: We need about ten-fifteen more suggestions, just letting you guys know. We got more than I expected a lot faster than I expected, so now I'm thinking I can start this sooner rather than later. More ideas!
Hello all, this is a fun little contest that I'm delighted to rip off from our good friends over at Bloody Elbow (who themselves ripped it off from a radio show) and alter for our use here on Niners Nation. We're right in the middle of the NFL offseason and we've got all kinds of nonsense going with a lockout and things of that nature, so I figured we'd do something fun for the offseason. I actually had plans to run some kind of tournament bracket in some capacity, but seeing the BE Tournament of Bad gave me the topic.
We're going to matchup at least 64 of the absolute worst things in or about the National Football League today or in very recent history. They'll go up against eachother with polls and all kinds of voting, culminating in the end with one winner, the absolute worst thing in the NFL. I've come up with most of the entries thus far, but I'll only list a few examples and see if you folks can come up with things that I missed, and also see if plenty of you confirm the things that I have down.
Some examples are after the jump for what we're looking for. Go ahead and REC the comments that you agree with as well. I'll move this fanpost to the front page a couple times over the next couple days to solicit ideas.
- New kickoff rule
- Twitter beefs
- Matt Millen's draft strategy
- Rex Ryan's foot fetish
- Brett Favre's media whoring
- Personal seat licenses
- DeMaurice Smith, Roger Goodell, The Lockout
- The Brady Six
- Cortland Finnegan's face
- The Madden Curse
- The New England Cheatriots
- "Now this guy ... is a football player!"
The possibilities are endless, so nominate away, folks! It can be serious things, it can be hilarious things, let your imagination run wild.
