NN NFL Tournament of Badness Opening Round: New England Patriots and Joe Buck

Outside of some technical errors I can't possibly foresee, it looks as though the NN NFL Tournament of Badness is back on track. At the time of writing these, we've got an upset on our hands as "Racial Profiling a Player's Skillset" is beating the fifth-seeded "Name Value MVPs" I probably rated the latter a bit too high, but I am happy with the placement of the former. Today, we've got the "New England 'Cheatriots'" up against Joe Buck. Well this one should be ... how you say, interesting.

So make the jump to read the descriptions of the participants for today, read full results from the left side of the bracket and of course, view the entire bracket. 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. Make the jump.

(4) New England Cheatriots

To start, they don't deserve a clever name for their shenanigans. They deserve only the lamest of lame, because cheating is lame. If you don't immediately know what I'm referring to, then you probably just became a fan of football or you literally only pay attention to the 49ers. The Patriots were caught filming this or that and were slapped on the hand for it. Kind of. I don't know how many of their titles you can actually say are tainted, if any, but there is an intense bit of ... how you say, lameness there. Then Josh McDaniels is caught filming 49ers practice after he goes to the Broncos. Well, somebody else did, and McDaniels had "nothing" to do with it. Right. The genius of Bill Belichick can never be overstated, he's just a genius of the evil and underhanded variety at times, as well. Whatever it takes, which is actually something I kind of admire. Kind of.

(13) Joe Buck

So, I typed in Joe Buck's name into Google just to get some examples of how awful he is, and this was one of the first images that showed on the first page. Anyway .. moving on from that. Joe Buck is a terrible commentator, to start. He has no skills during a game, in talking about players or what's actually happening on the field. Outside of that, the guy hates everything and everybody. He's got this air of jealousy about him that you can feel at all times, save for when he's calling a game, in which case he's usually half -asleep and unable to actually function on a jealous level. Look, I don't need to explain this anymore. The guy is turrible.
