NN NFL Tournament of Badness: Joe Buck and Racial Profiling A Player's Skillset

In a hurry so quick, recycled descriptions for today's matchup in the Tournament of Badness. It looks like both Pro Bowl options are going to be eliminated, as "The Brady Rule" is handling business much like I expected (good to see my number one seeds hold up). Today, we've got Joe Buck making his "triumphant" return after I severely underrated him in the opening round. He's up against "Racial Profiling A Player's Skillset," nothing to take lightly. Should be a good match.

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.

(12) Racial Profiling A Player's Skillset

This was a vote-in that I assessed to be about a 12-seed. This is not "racism" itself, which is clearly one of the worst things in the history of ... anything, in or out of the NFL. This is incorrectly identifying a player's skillset simply because of his race. It's a minor form of racism that just about everybody is prone to do. Sometimes, the comparisons are apt, but sometimes ... they're really not. Like calling Peyton Hillis the next John Riggins, or Michael Vick the next Warren Moon. It's not harmful so much as it is silly. Silly and stupid and just ... silly. Yes. That's what I'm going with.

(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.
