NN NFL Tournament of Badness: Divas and Too Many Commercials

New, comments

It's an extremely close matchup at the time of writing this, almost completely 50/50 with just a couple hours remaining in yesterday's matchup. "The Brady Rule" looks like it's going to survive and become the third number-one seed to make it into the final eight entrants, but it does only hold a five-vote lead at the time of writing over "Joe Buck." Either way, we move on to the final matchup in the round of sixteen to trim us down to eight, as the 14th seed "Divas" is up against the number two-seeded "Score, Commercial, Kickoff, Commercial." Should be a good one, though my money is on the latter.

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.

(14) Divas

Players who think they are God's gift to football, who think they deserve only the best treatment, who blame everything on other people. T.O. is a good example of a diva. He's actually one of the best examples of a diva. Some people might say Michael Crabtree is a diva, and I don't agree. At least not yet, but there have been some tendencies that get him partially there. He's got a whole career to prove one of us wrong, though. Either way, divas are just awful, and now I'm wishing I spent more time on the right side of the bracket because I feel like this is seeded way too low. We shall see

(2) Score, Commercial, Kickoff, Commercial

For one, there are far too many commercials during football broadcasts. Rather, there's far too much advertising, which is leading to less cheerleaders and things of that nature, but as to something actually important, the whole score, commercial, kickoff, commercial thing is so annoying. It actually really takes me out of the game. Sometime the game will fade to commercial immediately after a touchdown before there's time for a replay, and then it'll come back finally and we'll get a kickoff. Then another commercial. It's infuriating, and takes me personally out of the experience. I'm sure it does for some of you as well.
