 It is a forgone conclusion that cheating is prevalent in throwdowns. It is disturbing how such a fantastic idea has become completly warped.

 for instance I will give you two examples that bother me the most. 1, a person started a throwdown that suggested Jim Brown is not one of the top 5 running backs in NFL history and won. 2, while not having to do with sports at all but proof that the system is faulty, a person stated that Bruce Springsteen is the best rock and roll musician ever. While that point is debateable, another person accepted the throwdown  and argued a porn star is better than Springsteen and won.  While there are many like it both of those examples are plain ridiculous.

 Here are my suggestions to make the throwdowns fair for everyone that is participating.

 First make the Throwdowns annonymous. When we go to the throwdown home page we see the title of the debate and have no idea who started it or who accepted it untill all three arguements have been submitted and all time for voting has expired.

 Second, when a person puts out or accepts a throwdown that I.P address ability to leave a comment and  post on a fan group page becomes suspended for the duration of the throwdown.

  I understand that there would still be ways around these suggestions such as multiple computers in a house or work area, but if people want to go to that much trouble they have a serious problem. I believe that if my suggestions were put into place, throwdowns would become what the people as SI/CNN had intended.
