NN NFL Tournament of Badness: Seahawks Alternates and New Referee Rule

Due to the ... awful news regarding Eric Heitmann that Fooch posted a couple hours ago, this matchup in the NN NFL Tournament of Badness was pushed back until 4:00 p.m. Tomorrow, the new post will go up at 2:00 as usual, but this one will still be in voting until 4:00. We had another extremely high vote total yesterday as "Dallas Cowboys Being Referred To As America's Team" blew "Rookie Holdouts" out of the water. Today, those hideous Seahawks alternates are taking on the new referee rule limiting the no huddle offense. The Seahawks alternates beat the old Buccaneers uniforms handily in its first matchup.

So make the jump to read the descriptions of the participants for today, read full results from the opening round of the bracket, 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.

(5) Seahawks Alternates

Wearing these uniforms should be considered a war crime. They are just awful, and most Seahawks fans will neglect to defend them. They are an abomination and an affront to VISION everywhere. I spit on these uniforms. I bite my thumb at them. I have nothing more to say.

(13) Referee Rule Limiting The No Huddle

This was initially in the elimination round, and it made it through. There's a new rule that says the referees have to be set behind the line of scrimmage before a play can begin, which severely hinders quick playcalling. I've seen it have an effect on offenses that weren't even running the no huddle, that's how slow the referees are to get to it sometimes. This haven't affected the 49ers much considering they were lucky to get a play off before a delay-of-game in 2010 anyway, but it still sucks. A lot.
