Here are the standings entering Round 2:

Per the rules page, we will be reseeding after each Round.

- Seeded according to vote win-margin in Round 1

- Largest win margin gets #1 seed, second-highest win margin gets #2 seed, etc.

- (Re)seeding tiebreaks go to Round 1's higher seed

Sorry for the delay on the topic posting. My internet was down through the weekend.

If anyone has any valid complaints regarding their topic (such as it being unfair to either TDer -or- if the topic is confusing / poorly written), please let me know. I have a solid list of back-up topics available.

Results

Tnerb 5 - Outlaw 3

Rudedog 2 - Alchemist 5

Baron 1 - Chosen 5

Update posted Tuesday, 11/09/2010

Veteran Newbie: Shank Em has withdrawn from the tournament. I will not be seeking a substitution. Save Me Jebus will advance via default.

I will begin preparing Round 3 tomorrow, Wednesday 11/10/2010.

The pass blocking rules were extended to permit extended arms and open hands.

Shortly after he started the TD, I relayed to Shank the info you FM'd me. I believe his intentions are to send you the direct challenge on Monday, Nov. 1st.

I think he hit the forfeit button to get it off the board... personally I would have let it time out.

I still don't know how to attack this TD topic. How can you undermine or belittle the work of a Hall of Famer like Deacon Jones?

Was one of those topics that I had a lot of angles in mind... and I knew it was a unique topic...

So I included it to keep things interesting, in case TDers had an arguable case they could present against Deacon Jones.

Because I also have a lot of boring topics I'm trying to avoid handing out. Like a boatload of "Rank the 5 best"...

But if neither you nor Shank feel comfortable arguing against Deacon Jones, I really can't deem the topic "fair". So I can give you guys a new topic.

I'll handle the rest over FanMail.

I don't think it will go over well with the voters. Shank will say it should not have an impact on his legacy which is true. I honestly, don't think this is a arguable TD topic.

Baron missed his second argument and forfeited so do I go on or do we redo it?

There was a similar scenario that came up in two other tournament throwdowns (one this round, one last round). To remain consistent, in the event of forfeited turns there will be no redoes.

Okay, I just posted a new (hopefully more fair) topic for Veteran Newbie and Save Me Jebus.
