Please Read

If anyone has any legitimate complaints regarding their throwdown topic (such as the topic not being fair to both TDers involved, confusion over the topic itself, or even say you've done the topic before) please send me an FM.

I tried to scan all the TD topics before adding them to the tournament but made a few last minute changes. It's also impossible for me to make sure guys with hundreds of completed TDs (like DJ, Rude and Chosen1) are getting topics they've never TD'd before. I have a small list of potential back-up options. But I saved what I consider the more interesting topics for the tournament.

If anyone goes MIA between today and Sunday, September 19th - without a heads up or explanation - they will be at risk of being replaced with a substitution. If you need extra time please give me a heads up.

I'd like to thank everyone for trusting me to run this tournament and wish you all good luck!

i love the 1983 draft topic.

September 10, 2010  07:13 AM ET

so in mine and rude's should we do a snake draft or something so its fair
he gets his #1, i get #1 and #2, he gets #2 and #3, then i get #3

if he chooses his top 3 i dont think that would be fair

Sorry, I had intended that to be just the players. I'll update the picture later.

I had prepared everything on Excel spreadsheets. Rather than retyping everything I just cut / pasted an image to this blog. (and I think it looks cleaner this way)

The 2nd image should say:

#14 seed BringThePain sends Direct Challenge to tdbubba15
Topic: Best player taken from the 1983 NFL Draft

If these images aren't showing up for some of you I'll type it out.

I see it now that I'm on my personal computer. My work computer is lame.

My work computer does the same thing. It won't show any images or videos. Which sometimes is probably for the best considering what people post on this site...

There's nothing that says you can't overlap choices. Guys picking the same choices happens on list TDs all the time.

Would you be more comfortable with a "Rank the 5" worst roster transactions... ?

"It's also impossible for me to make sure guys with hundreds of completed TDs (like DJ, Rude and Chosen1) are getting topics they've never TD'd before"


I'm pretty sure I have never did a throwdown on the topic you have assigned to me plus it is a good topic so I have no complaints

September 11, 2010  01:54 PM ET

Gonna wait until Monday to get this started. Don't know if skoorb is around during the weekends

September 16, 2010  09:42 AM ET
