Greatest Footballers Of All Time Tournament

Postby ChrisP on Sun Apr 10, 2011 1:29 pm

Hey fellas, I'm back after quite a while away from this forum. Sorry about how the world cup one ended but my father had been taken sick, so had no time for this..

Ok, so to what I'm doing this time.. I've created a march madness style bracket with 20 of the greatest modern players of all time, and 20 from the past.. You will vote and can also predict who you think will win each matchup with a bracket software website i've found on the internet..

I'm going to be starting this in about a week time, and by the end we should have the greatest player from the 90s-20th century, and the greatest player from the past.. Pele vs Maradono, Messi vs Zidane? All matchups are possible in this bracket..

So go to the websites below and make your predictions and we'll get this tournament underway when there has been enough brackets filled out by you!

I've created 2 brackets, one for the modern and one for the past, you'll have to make your predictions for both.. below are the websites..

http://challonge.com/bestfootballers

http://challonge.com/bestfootballers2

All scores will be logged and the bracket software is like what Dark uses for his character cups, so the winner will be the person that makes the most correct prediction.. 1 point for every correct prediction in round 1, 2 points for round 2..

So get voting, and hopefully we should get this underway next week!

Sounds like a great idea. Will fill out the brackets. :D

And he has finally found a way to love himself. The bamboo sways across the blue sky. And Jack Shephard's eye closes one final time. He is gone."
