The Topics announced!
First the ground rules
- These topics are here for the ENITRE tourney- so if any are not taken they are fair game- If I mark them TAKEN do not use them.
- Ok people, I know vote swapping goes on- and people do cheat here- I am ASKING you all to NOT do this for the tourney- If you can win this LEGIT- then you are the (wo)man – if you win by cheating, you are simply sad.
- The top seed picks THREE topics and puts them below- I would PREFER you place sports that BOTH of you chose- but failing that- then place 2 of any sport you choose and 1 either in the sport of your opponent or the general sport topics
For example, If I faced Stowe- and I was the top seed- no WAY would I place a baseball topic there- but Stowe also lists NFL as his second choice – so I’d place all 3 of my topics as NFL- BUT if Stowe was the top seed- he could place 2 MLB topics and ONE NFL topic – but such is the advantage of a higher seed.
Now Say GOAT faces Stowe- GOAT has NBA and NCAA – so If GOAT has the top seed- he could list 2 NBA topics and 1 General Sport topic Stowe on the other Hand could list 2 MLB and 1 General.
Since 27 of the 32 players have NFL on the List and 18 have MLB – hopefully we won’t run into too many issues.
4. I will send out the list of COMPLETED TDs EACH and EVERY Day – To the FNC and the Elite TD group – they will be identical
