The purpose of the Featured Throwdown of the Week! (FTW!) is to pit two talented TDers with a common interest or theme against each other. In most cases these TDers wouldn't normally face each other but I'm going to act as a fight promoter to set up premier matchups.
This isn't a tournament. It isn't a league. This is simply setting up a premier, quality matchup each week.
Week 1 results
I hope you had a chance to check out the epic showdown between Clint Eastwood vs Arnold- Deadliest Warrior style.
Our simulations showed that in one thousand battles, Clint won 533 and Arnold triumphed in 467 - and in the TD, Clint Won 16-14.
It seems Clint's cold-blooded, calm, and controlled (and alliterative) manner led to more precise long-range shots. Arnold, while superior in close combat and with mass destruction weapons, had difficulty closing on the smaller, more agile Eastwood. When Arnold was able to close, the Magnum .44 couldn't match the explosive power of the shoulder-mounted rockets. In hand-to-hand combat, the Eastwood "punch of immediate unconsciousness" had little effect on the metal-alloy jaw of the Terminator. Unfortunately, for the big man, in the majority of cases he wasn't able to get within range. And that made Clint's day.
Congrats to Outlaw/UH on the inaugural FTW win.
Thanks to Jim77 on an entertaining and excellent counter-argument.

This matchup is still in progress so stop by and read the arguments between the previous champions, the New Orleans Saints and the always competitive and NFC Vick-tors, the Philadelphia Eagles.
The arguments are outstanding and close. Please read & vote.
Nice guys can finish first. It's a given when two of FanNations most creative and likeable characters square off.
