Alright, sorry it took so long! I blame GTA IV!

Current Point Standings

1. JBond - 41

2. Dr. Gonzo - 16

3. Forenci - 15

4. Sarf - 13

5. Paul 9

6. Broth223 - 5

7. BrownsTown - 5

8. Bantx - 4

9. Go_Eagles77 - 2


Anyways, here's how it works:

There are three different ways to accumulate points, whoever has the most points wins.

1) The Public Poll - As you see there is a public poll, it is there for all NFLDC users to give their input on our teams. Each vote a person gets will account for (1) point towards their total point standing. (Also, please note that what you're voting on is the overall 'appeal' and coolness of the total collective draft of that person. Make sure you don't vote for someone just because they have your all-time favorite character. It's about the overall draft! Thanks.)

2) The Judges - Caddy, Scottyboy, and Woot have all kindly volunteered to be our judges. They will rate their top 3 teams. 1st place votes will receive (10) points, 2nd place votes will receive (6) points, 3rd place votes will receive (3) points.

3) The Participants - Those of us who took part in the draft will also judge amongst ourselves in the same way the judges did. However, the point total for each 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place vote will be less to help redeuce bias. And of course, you cannot vote for your own draft. 1st Place votes get (5) points, 2nd Place votes get (3) points), 3rd Place votes get (1) point.

Okay! Now with that all done, here are the teams! I just want to thank everyone involved for making it go smoothly!

Just looked over the teams and this is going to be a tough decision. I will most likely post my standings later in the night.

Oh, and why the hell did nobody pick Leisure Suit Larry..

Ugh, I was going to but every time it was my pick someone else popped into my head.

It would have been a great pick.

Dr. Gonzo
05-04-2008, 03:06 AM
**** me. I had been saying from the start on IRC I would take Leisure Suit Larry somewhere in the 1st ten rounds and then I got busy so I started to make quick picks and he ******* completly slipped my mind. Fact is I got Toe ******* Jam and **** sucking Earl. I win.

Had to go with Broth's team. Has the best antagonist in all of video games (Sephiroth), Sega's biggest symbol on virtually all of their consoles (Sonic), the casual video game player's biggest symbol (Pacman), and multiple badasses (including my favorite FF character Vincent and Super Smash Bros.'s greatest character Captain Falcon).

Very nice.

Judgment will now be passed:

1st Place: Jbond - Nailed the first few rounds in my opinion and had some solid mid-late rounders.

2nd Place: Forenci - Nice top end picks and good value picks in the mid rounds.

3rd Place: Dr Gonzo - I thought the Luigi pick was a big reach, but everything else was great.

Please I should be tops in this race. I got the steal of the draft with Asshole dog from duck hunt.

Toejam and Earl? please PaRappa is 10X the Rapper those two are.



Sephiroth (FFVII) No character has better theme music.

Vincent Valentine (Final Fantasy VII) Vampire with guns
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1pSP1U6s-A

"The Doom Guy" (Doom franchise) Who didn't love Doom?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-kg3oy0g6Y

PaRappa (PaRappaTheRapper) Before there was DDR and Guitar Hero there was PaRappa The Rapper
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6eZcV1UuUzI

Dog (Dunk Hunt) - Everyone wished they could shoot the damn thing Most hated character EVER.

Had to go with JBond

Vega is #1 in my books, then follow that up with Killer 7, Master Cheif, Samus, Falco & Guile and you got your winner

Brothgar
05-05-2008, 11:28 AM
Oh and for my participants rankings

1) JBond for aforementioned badassness
2) Paul Good variety Sweet Tooth pwns all. Although Big Boss may have been a reach but he is the father and mother of both Solid and Liquid.
3) Dr. Gonzo although very MGS heavy (Seriously Decoy Octopus?) He did get some of my favs like Wesker Kefka and one of the best characters of all time Conker.

SuperMcGee
05-05-2008, 11:32 AM
I'm a little disappointed to see nobody from the Punch-Out games, but I guess I'd give an edge to JBond over Gonzo's awesome Mario characters and co.

People love bad ass

Makes it cool and gives me a style. Chief and Samus could be the most deadly lovers since Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

I also think, for a team with a theme, I got a wide range of guys.

You have classics, like Donkey Kong

Fighters like Sub Zero, Guile and Vega.

Sidescrollers like the Double Dragons (which were absolute steals BTW,)

And then some mid-late solid picks like Bomberman, James Earl Cash, Commander Shepard, and all Killer 7 in a sick game.
