    The Boogedy Man Walked All Over Me!
  1. I'll play! Any team will do.
  2. AIM: Nickname (if applicable): LuckyTool Email: Availability: After 10PM ESTusually Can you host?: Yes? List 4 Team Preferences: None What's your location/timezone?: Eastern Why do you want to join HSTL?: Sounds like fun.
  3. If winner goes a) or b), then coin flip loser gets his choice of controller AND a ) his pick of team from the winner's matchup choice or b ) has to call the matchup, and then coin flip winner gets his choice of team. If winner goes c), then loser either calls the matchup (and winner gets his choice of team) or forces coin flip winner to call the matchup and loser gets his choice of team.
  4. Since everyone would prefer to be P1, there are really two types of people: those that strongly prefer to call the match-up (I am in this camp), and those that strongly prefer to not call the match-up (I can't imagine any "upper-level" players in this camp, but maybe there are... and the rules shouldn't only cater to that group anyway). Under old Madison rules (and buck's equivalent system), a player that hates calling match-ups might get double-boned by "winning" the toss (they have to call the match-up and they might get stuck with P2 as well). A player that likes to call match-ups is guaranteed to get a match-up call or P1. I understand the complaints. Under the new system, a player that prefers to call the match-up automatically gets double-boned by losing the coin-flip (they don't get to call and they are P2). A player that hates calling match-ups gets a push regardless of who wins the toss. Here is my suggestion for a more equitable system where neither side gets double-boned. There are two choices: 1) choose your controller or 2) choose who has to pick the match-up (the person who doesn't pick the match-up will get their choice of team). Whoever wins the coin toss gets to choose one of these and the coin toss loser gets to make the other choice. Here, if I strongly prefer calling the match-up and I lose the toss, I at least get player 1 and my choice of team as a consolation (I get my 1st and 3rd ranked choices or 2nd and 3rd ranked choices). If I hate calling the match-up and lose the toss, even if homeboy forces to call the match-up I get P1 (again, I get 1st and 3rd or 2nd and 3rd ranked choices). Neither type of person would get stuck getting their 3rd choice only. Coin toss winner gets their pick of the litter and the loser gets the other two. The coin-toss winner could still get two of his three preferences if the players have different tastes. Nobody gets double-boned. At Kumite we used the new Madison rules (essentially), but we needed to save some time because our process of drawing ping-pong balls each round was lengthy. This year we are not drawing ping-pong balls and there will be a coin flip, so O'Dell and I will have to determine how it goes down. If this system has any glaring flaws that I missed please let me know!
  5. Kia needs to sponsor Madison this year... winner gets a 2017 Sorento!
  6. Will the controllers be able to be adapted to work with a PC or with the regular console or will they only work with this new contraption? Having new controllers produced by Nintendo would be a plus.
  7. Congrats to Ted for making the playoffs with that roster!
  8. Classic fail at the end of the first half!
  9. For your enjoyment: HSTL 28 NFC Championship Game...
  10. Hahaha I was pretty wasted by that point. What a blast.
  11. I'm in! Will be trekking across the Great White North with O'Dell to get there.
  12. GG bruddog! Not much to complain about in this one. We both got a break on our first drives. Later I lucked out on a Pagel to Blades I think with Fulcher standing there and no pick. Good clock management at the end of the first half left me down a score. When I kicked the FG I thought to myself "your D has been your strength" so I put faith in coming up with a stop. I didn't know about Tim Worley! I should have played the kickoff conservatively. The fumble was the icing on the cake, but the game had been decided by then. Looking forward to the final!
  13. This result guarantees a different league champion for each of the five seasons. GoNick can join War Machine as the only players to make two finals. Good game, dudes!
