The law has been laid
 Group admin 
And here's how it's going to work. Everyone who signed up WILL be playing. There are still a few open spots of course, so you may be asking yourself, "How is Chris going to do this?"

Easy, I'm setting up the games as if there were the full 128 players with the brackets filled out completely.

The open spots will be left for anyone who still wants to sign up between now and the start of the games mid August.

IF those spots are still not filled, then those open spots are going to give the player that was assigned to compete against it, a bye to round 2. Obviously, these spots are going to be given to players who played in last years competition first. Then, once all of last years players are given their "bye", I'll randomly assign the remaining open spots.

This is how it's going to work and this is how everyone who signed up will get to play. It may not seem fair to some of you, but that's how it's going to be.

I'll start getting the brackets ready this weekend and assign the blank spots as well.

Questions? and please.. think before you ask.

Oh, Chris you are a genius. Where do you find the time to even come up with such an idea? I mean... that would take me days of sitting at my computer desk in super thinking mode to come up with. And... you are a police man right? That is a time consuming job. Do you like... save time in a bottle and use it all on this tournament? Oh you generous man.

Bravo Chris!
This is very fair. Now, the road to the championship is either 6 or 7 wins for ANY competitor. I think this is the most equitable solution for ALL the partisipants.

You know, funny thing... I could swear that you're going against eggplant in Castle in the first round... that's if I don't lose your entry first.

(funny BTW, thanks for the giggle)

I'm pretty sure that's one of the plagues of Egypt. darkness, sickness, the death of every firstborn, eggplant getting assigned to the castle category...

Yeah, and just think of how embarrased I was when you told me about that catholic school girl thing but neglected to mention WHO had to be wearing it... And I want those pics back by the way.

(See kids, join in on the smack directed at you and it just makes it funnier. That's Phipson's tip of the day.)

I am outraged. I came to this topic of conversation expecting appropriate language pertaining to the rules and laws of this contest, and instead I find the title to be a "tongue-in-cheek" misnomer for, well, the law getting laid, and school girl outfits. Shame, shame to you all.

Just kidding; I couldn't think of any funny smack to say, so I decided to be pretentious and anal... oooh, is that ever a double-entendre.

So I heard from Jack that it was a pretty small 'tip'. and you were constantly having to go downstairs to get extra double A's. too bad, you guys made such a good couple.

So...does that make you an 'Anal Crisp'? And if so, is that some type of suppository snack cracker?

I am going to walk away from this, and so should you. I mean, sure, it would be perversely humurous to talk about dry, salty, suppository crackers in three different flavors of nacho cheese, cool ranch, and crapuchino, but that kind of humor does not belong here. We would all giggle about a mid-day suppository tickle, about the snack you share with close friends to really teach a person about embracing the "90s", but we won't.

Only mildly? Oh, the shock must not have worn off yet. Give it time and you'll be completely disturbed like the rest of us.
