NN NFL Tournament of Badness Opening Round: Week 17 Byes, Rookie Holdouts

NOTE: Please READ the description of the entrants before you vote or comment. Thanks.

Day one voting is now closed, be sure to check out the bracket for the results, which will be updated as soon as possible. Also, I imagine you can just go to the post yesterday and see the results, if they display them once polls are closed. It does look like Dallas Being America's Team ran away with it (these posts are pre-scheduled, so I'm not privy to the results). That being said, we move on to day two, where the eight-seeded Week 16, 17 Being A Bye Week is taking on Rookie Holdouts.

Now, remember, we are voting on what we believe to be the absolute worst thing of the two. If you're voting in a worst food contest, and you like pizza more than hamburgers, you would then vote for hamburgers in that matchup. Get it? Got it? Good.

(8) Week 16, 17 Being A "Bye Week"

It's not something that has had an effect on us as a 49ers fans in recent years, but teams who are a lock for the playoffs have a tendency to not play all of their starters in week seventeen, and even occasionally in week sixteen. It's really not fair, considering another team coughJETScough can get into the playoffs based on those games. Plus it's just ... not a fun game, you know? Yeah, you know.

(9) Rookie Holdouts

This is a problem because, most of the time, it has nothing to do with a player being treated unfairly. Players should be paid where they're drafted, just because they "think" they're better than that doesn't mean they are. However, they can do whatever they want, but it almost never works out in their favor. Michael Crabtree is the most recent holdout, and the deal he eventually got was actually lower than what the 49ers reportedly offered in the beginning. And he missed out on the beginning of the season, training camp and preseason because of it.
