NN NFL Tournament of Badness: Brett Favre's Media Whoring and Fans That Take It Too Far

We've another number-one seed in action today, and it is one of the more maddening things in this tournament. Fooch has grown accustomed to referring to him as "He Who Should Not Be Named" (though he's not adverse to tagging articles concerning him with his name for the page views!), but we'll just call him Brett Favre. That's right, after blowing out the new AFC and NFC Championship trophies, Brett Favre's media whoring is back to take on a very strong eight-seed in "Fans That Take It Too Far". Should be a good one, folks.

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.

(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.

(8) Fans That Take It Too Far

This is on the bracket officially with "Eagles fans" added to it, and I want to point out right now that not all Eagles fans are bad, and we do indeed have a large community of great folks over at Bleeding Green Nation. That being said, when you're talking about something like this, the examples that come to mind come in the vein of Philly fans, so there's really nothing that can be done about that. Note, of course, that EVERY team has people like this, including our 49ers. Be it fans who freak out and call for a player's injury, or fans that take it too far and cause bodily harm to other fans or other fans' property, this was one doesn't need to be explained more than that. I hate it when somebody calls for injury or celebrates injury (recent example being certain Diamondbacks fans and Buster Posey), and it's obviously a horrible thing to be physically attacked due to your fandom. Fortunately, the latter doesn't happen as much as one might think.
