Is that the spot where you're bent over a Mercedes with a rolled up hundred in your hand, a pile of blow under your nose, and Cisco Adler in your ass?

There’s really only one way to settle the age old question, “Who is the best Off-Topic poster?” Brackets!The following brackets are my opinion. The only proper way to disagree is to make your own. It’s quite fun and I highly recommend it.Now, please note that the seeding was done randomly through a random number function, so don’t get caught up in “OMG, how could he be a #1 seed?!” Also, I don’t have any rules or even guidelines for why somebody should beat somebody else; it’s just how I felt at the time.If you don’t find your name here, you can just pretend you did well in the NIT.On with the show…Posted Image(You'll probably have to click on the image twice for easier viewing.)
I don't see how anyone could complain about any of the final 4 picks through the Champion. The original seedings are the only problem, you shouldn't have made the seedings random. There is no way that Wang and JJJ aren't #1 or #2 seeds.

Stalking is an ugly word, Scott prefers "unwelcome pursuit of questionable moral dignity and ambiguous legality".

well, since you asked..While beans is old school, and is a sentimental favorite, I personally like Lady Ghey's caustic wit, and like her posts more than almost anyones, so I'd have put her in the final four. I'd pick Spademan over speedz. I think he's been posting less due to being posted in Iraq, but I really do enjoy him, and his member's only thread would have pushed him over the top for me. Sour grapes for pulling JJJ in the first round? Maybe.I think that LLY got an easy draw, and his toughest game was an early round victory, shoddily officiated game against shake. But I can't really argue against him in the Final four.The JJJ verses Rod Reynolds was the toughest of the great 8 matches. I think JJJ makes the final four in any other bracket. But RR is a juggernaut, so I can't really argue his win.EDIT: also, wang can't be a 1 or 2 seed, he doesn't post here anymore. At his peak, he, like Mexico, would have been easy 1 seeds.

I think JJJ should spend a full week analyzing GenPo and then make a bracket for them. Then that would put him over the top and he could come back and win this one.

The upper-half of the top right bracket is brutal.

JJJ, what did you use for your brackets/seeding program? I could use a good distraction from studying at some point today.

The problem with that is that I'd be doing the seedings and deciding who wins. A lower seed would never win. In that scenario, I might as well just rank everybody 1-64 and not bother with the brackets. The fun is in the random matchups.

makes sense. There has to be some way to achieve randomness but within reason. For instance, randomizing each bracket individually, or seeding by post count in the sick thread.Rhinestone will now forever be my nemesis.

I would have said the same thing about speedz, but I already hate jews, so it would have been redundant.
