   1. "Offensively, Spezza's propensity to make behind-the-back passes to nobody makes him such a big offensive black hole that he could swallow up the entire cast of Futurama and Leonard Nimoy." - Redwing (2008 Zing Tourney Champion)

     2.  Left blank in honour of one of FN's foremost Zingers, the Emperor rstowe - famous for his Forfeited Turn and bconngemini Zings. The Emperor departed the FanNation today following the Live Feed debacle. He will be missed.

Reproduced here: the Emperor's Ultimate Forfeited Turn Zing:

" Instead of 'Forfeited Turn', the forfeited argument should read:

- I'm a lazy bum who, after starting a TD, was either getting my butt handed to me, was making no sense, my dog ate my keyboard or some other really lame excuse (talk to TFo, he's good at making up lame excuses) for not making my argument. I apologise to my opponent who took their time and effort for this TD, and to all other members of Fannation who, even though I know I was right, are forced to vote for my opponent, because, as we all know, you never vote for someone who forfeited an argument (weekends not included)."
 

 

 And, for old times sake, a bconngemini Zing:

"The idea of other countries being better than the US in something makes his inbred, racist, xenophobic body ache."
