. .RTTFF. . ? ?

. .sooooper fine job on this . . :D

. .and if the " voting " is still open . .

. .I, too . . like that, once the winner is declared . . game over . . . and we see the winner in the next round . .

. .only having 3 threads to follow is very do-able. . and gets more responses. .

. .maybe at the " end " we can have a Grand Tailgating " to discuss AAAALLLL the Tournament . . ! !

. .again. . .solid effort . . ! !

. .ps. . I also like seeing the " schedule " . .that way I know when to ABSOLUTELY tune in . . ! !

:wink:
. . " and I finally disappear . . . . BUT NOT YET ! ! "

Where is the schedule that says when the next matches will be?

(Never mind, didn't bother checking the previous page )

(Probably should put it UNDER that chart though, would be easier to find ;) )

Just a thought....
I thought about that as well and I see some merits to that because I believe some people will react instead of having their own opinion. However, an opinion could be to follow the crowd.

I wouldn't mind seeing the thread locked until the voting was complete.

I've been having a very hard time with some of these votes. But instead of reading the posts before I vote, I listen to the two songs I have to vote for. Not that I don't know the songs, but listening to them one after the other, I judge the feeling I get with each one. Even though I love almost all of JB's songs, I've realized some move me more than others -- and I don't just mean the dancing in the aisles!!! :wink:

If the #1 and #2 seeds win all the way through it would look like this:

M'ville vs. OPH
Volcano vs. CIP
APLAF vs. CILCIA
Come Monday vs. Fins

That would be very interesting. Where is Jimmy the Greek to start setting odds on the matches?

Some of these 2nd round match-ups are going to be quite disturbing...

How come when I click on the link, it always shows me the results before I even cast a vote? I'm getting kind of bummed that it won't let me vote :cry:
If I had it all to do over again,
I'd just get myself drunk and I'd jump right back in!!!

Hmmmm.. have never heard of this happening. As far as I know, the only way it'll do that is that you click on "View Results" or you had to have voted. :-?

I'm confused. Why is "Knees" showing as the winner when "Cowboy" has more votes? Did someone stuff the ballot box?

I noticed that too, so sent a pm to RoadToTheFinalFour. Hopefully it gets fixed.

Not sure if this is what is happening, but sometimes if you are not signed in, it looks like you have voted. After you sign in you can vote.

RTTFF, this is a hoot! I really appreciate the your efforts!

My BOATS bracket is a disaster, but otherwise, I'm in pretty good shape.

All of my final four songs are still in, so it could be a lot worse, I could have my wife's bracket.

She has CIP winning it all. :o
