[Ported from the comments because I really DO think this could be fun]
I need the following information: when do we have to submit a representative?
Because if we’ve got at least through this weekend, I’m putting together a little BRB Madden tournament to determine our representative. The rules are as follows (I’m making them up as I type):
[Two Rules Modifications]
- Assuming we have the right number of players, a single elimination tournament. No seeding, match-ups completely arbitrary.
- After a night of sleep and a well-reasoned response, I suppose it makes sense for everyone to play as the Texans. So Texans ahoy! BOTH players as the Texans and may god have mercy on us all.
- 5 minute quarters, NO clock run off, All-Pro difficulty
- Register by replying to this post, registration closes at 12am CST TOMORROW night. I’ll make up the brackets and post match-ups Wednesday morning, with an eye toward starting games Wednesday night.
- Aim for a game each night, hopefully crowning a champion by Sunday evening (SBNation requirements permitting)
I’m obviously open to modifications to the rules. But I think this could be a fun little exercise to pass the time until the season starts. I see a lot of gamertags above, but if you could re-post that would be swell.
The results will have to be on the honor system. I don’t believe I can monitor a Madden game online, and anyway I don’t have my wireless card hooked up (fuck you moved modem!). For those interested, I’ll get your emails off your profiles or post them if you don’t have them (and don’t mind them being on the interwebz). Daily results up as a fanpost!
Is there honor amongst Texans fans?
Vini, vidi, Madici.
Gracias, DT. Also, we need to have a rep by Tuesday, September 7. - bfd
