NN NFL Tournament of Badness Opening Round: Brett Favre, The Media And The AFC, NFC Trophies

We've got another match that is moderately close going on, as "Player 'X' Is A Football Player" currently is leading "Player 'X' Is A Future Hall Of Famer". When this goes live, obviously the match will be over, but at the time of writing, it's only about half up right now. I guess I did overestimate how much people would care about the "football player" statement ... I figured I might have been, which is why I matched these two up to get one out of the bracket and not convolute it. That being said, I imagine "Player 'X' Is A Beast" on the other side of the bracket will perform especially well.

Today, we're starting on a new section and a new number one seed, as Brett Favre's Media Whoring is taking on the new look of the AFC and NFC trophies.We'll get to the voting in a moment, but first: 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.

(1) Brett Favre's Media Whoring

The man has retired and un-retired like no other. Brett Favre loves himself more than Terrell Owens loves ... Terrell Owens. The only good thing that came of all of Favre's shenanigans is the horn sound they played on the NFL Network when they would flash their Favre-watch logo. Favre is just ... the most annoying guy on the planet, easily. And he knows it. He's indecisive, and he feels the need to drag out decisions to skip training camp when, you know, he can just skip it after making the decision because he's Brett mother [site decorum] Favre. We don't need to know that Favre is thinking about coming back, we don't need to know if he's throwing passes to high schoolers, we don't need ten hours of watching his black SUV and we certainly don't need all these updates about his ... purple helmet. Alright? Good.

(16) New AFC and NFC Championship Trophies

Eww. Here's how the trophies used to look ... I like the old ones. They were different, they looked like trophy should. Now here is the new design, which I personally hate. They look small and flimsy and - more than that - they look too much like the Lombardi Trophy. Winning the conference championship is and should always be a big accomplishment, something a team can be proud of each year ... having the separate trophies to display reflected that. Now that they just look like tiny Lombardi trophies, it's like ... "hey, look at this dinky little trophy you got that ISN'T a Lombardi! Hah!" Displaying these things is sad, the old ones were much better in that regard.
