How could I forget him?
after his black qb post..i think u should have kanyedabest in the deadhead region....
u have Universial in 2 regions....
WizardofOz is the 7 in the Enigmas region
i think your chances look good since you are probably in the weakest region
im headed for a first round exit haha its a cool idea though, do we vote whos the better poster or will there be some type of debate?
you know what grampy, you got a pretty creative idea.
You missed some good users like TC_42, BasterdinaBasket, itsDwightHoward, surve, iguapops, apb540... and some others I can't remember
Also, BothTeamPlayHard a 5 seed? That's kinda weak. I know he's a little fiesty but I would have him at A 3 AT LEAST!
I think you might have a good idea, maybe you focus on one region a day and give a 24 hour time period for people to vote and then tally it up to decide winners.
Bit of a bummer I didn't make the final cut, was looking forward to going Butler on this tournament, but I guess I'll have to just watch from the sidelines, should be interesting if it pans out (this is ProudGrandpa we're talking about here).
proud grandpa u dun goofed
Sorry, man. I had you at a 9 or 10 seed when it was a 64 team thing, but you didnt make the cut. Apologies to basterdinabasket, surve, omphalos, sakitsapuwit, symbol, itsdwighthoward, and others.
I May Be Based-I feel you. I wanted BTPH higher, but I thought that might just be a matter of personal preference.
As for the format, I am just fishing around for input. The idea was to have voting on just the best poster, but some people have mentioned a debate-style competition ala Around the Horn
You are in the Goofball bracket, not the Enigmas bracket
Yeah,a debate formula would be much better..
Some guys on here have 4 or 5 accounts and vote for themselves..
i'm in the same group as jnix, nothing weak about being in his class...
i want Mc-****** and NoMoney's input, but they are only ever on here at 4 am.
So let me get this straight I have to have a serious debate...about basketball...to win?
Hey why am I not in it.....I came up witht he debate idea
Thats not a win
This sounds like a cool idea, but I think I'd rather just watch. In fact, give my spot to omphalos. McBubble and I can be the announcers or something.
I bet people would take this more seriously if you changed the name. I wouldn't mention Forum MVP or anything like that, and instead stress that it is a big tournament that challenges user's intelligence. I'd also mention in the body of the topic that there will be a big audience viewing and plenty of points to go around.
Not sure how you'll actually pull off the debates, get enough people to participate or decide a winner without seeming biased; but this would be really cool if you organize it right. Good luck.
ProudGrandpa I want in
You have only 816 posts (and before people point ou that I have less than that, I am in the negs and get an 8 seed), only 320 pts, and you have little site acitvity recently. And no one is really sticking up for your inclusion
Im trying to decide if we should debate or just vote for hte most intelligent/valuable user
Anticipating that 2nd round match up Me vs McDunkin lines up right with other epic battles of the past century. US vs Germany, Hogan vs Andre the Giant, Drago vs Rocky, Vegeta vs Goku, Eddy Curry vs Food
So that fact that you are in the negs and im in the positives makes you get a spot on top of that how many people have been on the site as of late with the lock out there isnt much to talk about. Anyway if a guy isnt interested I am I love debating and I'm addicted to winning
I'll give up my spot for Charlie Sheen, would be too hard for me to debate with the 12 hour time difference I've got.
you hear that proud grandpa I'm in I hope I see you
I am pretty sure I would be in the, "This guy just seems like a bro" region. But, alas, on here I am seen as semi-cereal (I guess I take basketball as cereal business). Honestly, basketball has been one of the things I have taken the most seriously in my life, for better or worse. Still, I have no idea how you would get this done.
Maybe investigate in a polling site or something to that extent? Maybe have weekly posts (hopefully in the Off-Topic board, but, if you feel you must, like many seem to, the main board) with match-ups and counting the votes. I think the divisions are a decent idea, but I feel like it does not necessarily show the diverse abilities of some posters. Again, I feel that butidonthavemoney is the Forum MVP, and that if he were not included, it would go to JNixonIggy.
So, are the 8 seeds going to have play-in games? Well, either way, I think if you took the time, you could easily make this a 64 team tourney. Also, omphalos, I would be glad to try and debate you with the 12 hour time difference. But, I do not think this should be a debate centered thing. I think you nailed the one seeds by region, though some of your seeding beyond that could maybe use some work. I have had a really hard time getting a gauge on you as a poster, you obviously seem to be a long time observer or poster of some sort. Well, good luck with everything.
Mikey you got Jimmered...won that big ol MVP award and you still couldnt get a 1 seed
How is that "getting Jimmered", by the way? Are you saying that Jimmer Fredette is the reason I am losing my hair as well? That I actually am not genetically balding, it is just Jimmer coming into my room every night with a razor? Did Jimmer convince Cliff Harris to try and return that punt from the end zone, thus giving up our only two points to Colorado? If so, than "Jimmered" I have been. But, I am happy enough to have won the award at all than to have to whine about seeding. All of the #1's have more points than I do and have been more consistent posters as I used to tend to take hiatuses. Now that I have a job where I can come on here every once in while, it is almost like juicing I suppose. Well, nonetheless, in honor of my current award of MVP, I will let Big L explain things:
Heres how this'll work:
No debates. this would be too hard having to get the guys on here.
I will start a thread for each matchup, starting with the play-in games. Everyone can post their votes and argue why that poster is better.
Omphalos is not even in the tourney, so not spot for him to give.
MikeyV you ranting at me boy?
And I am afraid of what kind of right forearm strength TLI will come out of his dreaded basement with.
Ranting at your use of the term "Jimmered" in this particular situation. I do rant at you all of the time though, how is this any different. Also, McDavidStern, I will go Dwyane Wade on you if you call me "boy" one more time! MOP bring their mic stands and help! AHHHHHH! :)
Naw! I am in the strongest region! LL, MDymes, No Money, Joe Wolf(who just got back onto the site) and Paradigm. I really wish this would be a debate. Oh well, good luck ll perez, and please, go easy on me, lol.
Why are you just doing votes gramps? You realize that some people have alternative accounts and just give themselves thumbs up, so that means that Tli is going to win.
Wait a second Mikey...what does going Dwayne Wade mean?
See David Stern v. Dwayne Wade in the lockout meeting. There was thread about it somewhere.
Yes, it is not spelled the normal way one would spell it, but more like the way Whitley from "A Different World" would say it (For those who do not know, "In two years Dwayne Wayne became Dwyane Wade" from "Glory" by Kanye West references that show as well). Seeing that you were the bearer of off-colored and bad news, I assumed you were aware of the heated exchange between Dwyane Wade and David Stern. I guess it was only a verbal exchange, but being a person who can snap off when provoked at times, I imagine David Stern probably being a little shaken up and maybe "Checking himself before wrecking himself".
