Yesterday, we got things started with the elimination rounds in the NN NFL Tournament of Badness. I've decided to let all of the matches for the elimination round to run until Sunday at noon, so be sure to head over to the post we had yesterday with four of the twelve matchups and vote on those if you haven't yet (or even if you have already!)
That's right - even if you have already. Take advantage of your chance to cheat now, because you won't have it later on. We're using Google Docs for the poll options (so as to have multiple polls in one post) for these elimination rounds, so go for that with gusto. Again, yesterday's link is right here, so go there and vote ... two of the four matchups are extremely close, you could be the deciding factor! Now, we'll get on with today's four polls, right now.
But first! Do remember that you are voting for which thing is the absolute worst of the two. At the end of this, we hope to have what is, in fact, the worst thing in the NFL. If you like pizza more than burgers, then you would vote for burgers in a "worst food ever" tournament. Does that make sense? Good ... now make the jump.
Thursday Night Football versus Less Cheerleaders
This one is pretty straightforward, no? Thursday Night Football is annoying and they make up for it by calling them "primetime" games, but in reality, they're just promotional tools for the NFL Network. It makes sense in the scheme of things, but they can be terrible inconvenient. Also, seeing as how most of us are men and a good portion of us are creepy, there's also the fact that cheerleaders are getting less and less face time on gamedays. Sad, no?
Now, I'm not a fan of a lot of the new rules and I think the definition of "defenseless player" is far too broad at this point, but Hines Ward really does play like he wants to hurt somebody, at least in my opinion. On the flip side, how awful was it that McNabb didn't even understand that the game would be a draw if they failed to get things done? A little silly, if you ask me.
The Cutting Of Kory Sheets versus The Dancing Robot On Fox
This is pretty self explanatory, no? Our future being severed from us against that annoying robot that can't even break it down well.
The Abomination That Is The New Cowboys Stadium versus Cheeseheads
Again, this is very self explanatory. The stadium that they continue to pack people into with multiple blind spots and a whole lot of unnecessary add-ons that don't even contribute to the fan experience? Yeah, that one ... up against chesseheads. Those annoying hats. for Packers fans. Grr.
So, go ahead and vote below and go with which you think is the worst between the two. Vote multiple times if you want! Voting ends for this match at 12:00 p.m. Sunday (pacific).
NOTE: IF YOU ARE GOING TO VOTE FOR AN OPTION AND THE BOX IS ALREADY FILLED IN MY DEFAULT, CLICK THE OTHER BOX FIRST, AND THEN CLICK THE VOTE BOX FOR THE ONE THAT WAS INITIALLY FILLED. THE POLL RESULTS MAY OR MAY NOT ACTUALLY COUNT THEN WHEN YOU LEAVE IT HOW IT IS, YOU HAVE TO SWITCH IT FIRST!
