Thank you all for joining the tournament. Should be very fun and entertaining for everyone involved!
Let me lay down some ground rules for the tournament to kick this thing off.
1. I will not be participating in the tournament or voting in the TDs (unless the TD is tied at the end, see #3). I'm just here to run this thing. Please contact me with any questions regarding topics or any other tournament information.
2. Matchups for the first round will be randomly chosen by me. Topics will be posted next to the matchups so that both members of the TD can see the topic before the TD starts.
3. If a TD ends in a tie, I will break the tie with my own vote and declare a winner.
4. NO fanmailing of TDs.
5. Duping will be dealt with when/if it happens.
So here are the 1st round matchups and bracket structure. The person on the left of each matchup will be the one starting the TD.
1. Kagan vs. Assassin - Is commercial fishing good or bad for our coastal communities?
http://tinyurl.com/3ebg6qd ----Winner, Kagan.
2. UnBiasedPerspective vs. WAMU- Best overall place to go for a big-game hunting expedition?
http://tinyurl.com/667fhsq ----Winner, UnBiasedPerspective.
3. UH vs. Dyhard- Should fish farming be made illegal?
http://tinyurl.com/4yp23ac ----Winner, Outlaw.
4. Bigalke vs. Golden Grillz- Should the ban on the hunting of whales be lifted?
http://tinyurl.com/68yqkxc ----Winner, BIGALKE.
Kagan vs. UnBiasedPerspective in the second round.
Outlaw vs. Bigalke in the second round.
Those two winners TD for the championship.
Topics will be posted next to each matchup soon.
Good luck everyone!
