NBA Member Mayhem Schedule

Ladies and gentlemen, we are now ready to start the NBA Member Mayhem for NBA playoffs. I know you have all been waiting to see this after the great turnout with the March Madness Member Mayhem (or MMMM ). It is very similar to that, but we tweaked it a little. For anyone that doesn't know the rules here they are:

Rules:

A) Only posters from playoff teams can make it in.

B) We will have 2 representatives for each team.

C) A poll will be put up along with the question asked, and each member must give an essay form answer to the question. Other members can vote in the poll to decide the winner.

D) We will have we 3 way voting:

1. Starters (1st representative) get to answer question No. 1

2. Reserves (2nd representative) get to answer question No. 2

3. Since we are having polls, we would have each 10% count for 1 vote. That we would add it up between both members of each team and who ever has the most votes wins. That way we there would be less of a chance of a tie. In case of a tie, I would ask a tiebreaker question.

Schedule:

First Round: 2 days per matchup (48 hours)*
2nd Round: 3 days per matchup (72 hours)
Conference Finals: 4 days per matchup (96 hours)
Finals: 5 days (120 hours)

* for the First Round only we are posting the starters question on the first day, and then the bench on the next day. There will be 16 total matchups to vote on in the first round (including starters and bench), and I don't think we should have more than 8 matchups going at a time. For all the other rounds, all matchups will be posted at the same time.
Here are the matchups:

East Matchups:

(1)LogicMan/thefarnz vs. (8)axesstar/BucFan40

(4)BuckeyesROK/LBJ-MVP-08 vs. (5)Viktor Crapper/gazzso

(3)North Harbour/Frady vs. (6)takman777/
doc1394

(2)DJTANKELITE/Sheeds-Law vs. (7)Miamigregory/Huyho924

West Matchups:


(1)lakers2408/bosh4prez vs. (8)CowboysForever9/Bronco4life24

(4)Cowboynut_73_/slcmoney vs. (5)whoosh/toby20708

(3)Hornsstampede/Spurs Fan 4Life vs. (6)ChrisperJ10/wildcatsfan1

(2)RFMoldaner/GoHornets21 vs. (7)mavsyear/slim33chance

Make sure you come to the NBA boards and vote on all the matchups.

I apologize to everyone that has showed interest in this and has actually participated in this, but this is officially canceled. Half of the people involved didn't show up to participate, and we were not getting much interest from the rest of the community. Maybe next year we can organize this better and getting a better result.

Again, I'm sorry to all of you who tried and really wanted to this. I promise, I will make sure we are better prepared next year.

Bib B,

   Here's a thought as we go forward.  Is there any way to suggest that maybe people not post their thoughts on the matchup thread?  There's the possibility that it could influence how future people vote, because they base their decision on different information.  For instance, if someone posts that you left out this or that or has a different opinion, a different member sees that and decides to vote differently.

Just a thought.  So maybe set up a different thread for everyone to go to and discuss their opinions on the responses?

Yeah, it does or should even out if you vote for yourself.  I also like it cause you can see the percentages.

As for Vincesanity; he only votes on VC polls or Kobe polls.  LOL  (basically, his own)

whoosh,

You can vote on your matchup, and anyone elses. Just think about it; if both guys vote for themselves in their matchup, it cancels out. As long as you don't use more than one account....cough..Vinceanity....cou

gh.

Question on voting, Big B.

I'm assuming you cannot vote on your own post.  However, can you vote on a post for the same team done by the (Starter/Reserve) whichever one you are not?

Good job Big B. It turned out that 32 posters were a bit too much. I haven't figured that we haven't got that many regulars, otherwise I wouldn't suggest the pairs. You made it happen. Nuf @$$ licking - give me the questions!
