    Ubiquitous March Brackets

    Here is a thought. Why don't we set up a field of 64 theme and create a bracket. Like best sports movie or best villain. Seed them and then vote on who should advance. Set voting to be for one or two days and those with the most votes advance to the second round. Time the rounds with the actual tournament so the final coincides with the actual final.

    CyBookie could be used to create some action but that might get sticky with some mutiple voting. But no one here would do that though right?

    Thoughts?

    We'd never get past the controversy with the seeding around here.

    Yeah that would be an issue. Would probably need some mod help to seed. Just like the real selection not everyone is going to be happy.
