WELCOME TO MARCH MADNESS 2017 - THE END

Recommended Posts

Some of this was originally written by Jae

DVDVR MARCH MADNESS VIII

March Madness started in 2009. I think. It was a bit messy with more emphasis on madness. In the second year it became the sort of Wrestler of the Year competition though it really isn't.

The field this year is 80 entrants. (Entrants meaning man, woman or group from all over the world). I didn't really intend it to be 80. I had actually wanted 72 but math is stupid and I spent 6 fucking hours over two days getting the fucking bracket predictor to do what I fucking wanted. And so much moving around guys.

I know that a lot of you haven’t seen shit from a big chunk of these folks. I ask that you at least give each unknown a shot before voting. A match or two isn’t asking much and who knows maybe you’ll find something you can watch considering how many of you are hate watching the WWE. And you are going to have like 3 or 4 days on the first round.

RULES
Eligible Work is from March 1, 2016 - February 28, 2017
 
Generally speaking one votes based on a wrestler's performances over the last year. People are allowed to argue in favor or against any wrestler, as well as post any video evidence needed to back up said arguments. However don't take shit personally - this is all in good fun, and any trolling should be recognized as such. At the heart of this - it should be about watching good wrestling and the exposure to more of it.
 
IMPORTANT: If you take things too far, or become too much of a nuisance - you'll be getting a time out. So if you're trolling and having a laugh - my patience is very little. If you're being trolled, wake the fuck up. Above all: Don't be an idiot.

Oh my those are some nasty brackets, so many difficult choices just in round one. I only see a handful of matches where I saw a clear vote for myself. predicting this bracket is going to be a tremendous challenge.

This feels like a personal attack on me.

I already both love and hate this thing.

My predictions are the DVDVR account and they really are there just because I wanted to make sure the predictions correctly worked through all the brackets.

I really was in a "Fuck it - people stupidly like this guy" mode

I'm pretty sure you did not, and posted this one just to remind people Bayley is defending champion :)

I noticed that. I log in and it takes to my previous predictions but not the new tourney.

Where's the Revival? No Broken Matt?

Sorry if I've messed up.

You found Revival and the Hardys are listed as a group (under Smash I believe)

The plan is that the "play-in games" will go up Wednesday March 1 and close Thursday March 2

The entire 1st round will then go from Thursday March 2 - Monday, March 6

Basically you are going to have 4 1/2 days to watch stuff and vote on

Can we have a general thread for the multiple Pick'Ems (one single one would do I guess), where people can make cases between now and then?

Oh my gosh looking at the brackets I'm going to get more grey  hair than I already have.  First round isn't too terrible but round 2 on is just absolutely brutal.
