    I want to see a grizzled Doc come down to the CF tournament like Logan in the movie last year just full of rage and cynicism.

    I think being disillusioned by the current WWE is the basis of so many excellent columns. It's the agreeable type of columns that lack fire.
    And Jacob wrestled with God.

    Leaf - It doesn't matter how many more we get now, as the first seeding round will also whittle us down to 16 writers.

    As I said to Plan, its okay for you main pagers to admit youre scared and dont want to enter. Just be honest with us.

    I understand his feelings. I'd have a heart attack myself if someone like, say, Winter un-retired, just to take part in this.

    See, going on precedent alone, any time you say anything related to the CSI it automatically becomes suspicious! I'm now sat here expecting Winter to pop out of a bush or something.

    I’m flattered considering I’m not even his favourite. Anyone seen Shane recently?

    On a side note, I’d pop a gasket if BC came back, but I’m not sure how well he’d fit these days. It’s a much friendlier place now.

    Shane O was active around here during the spring and summer months. I remember him doing a Roode series back in August but nothing beyond that.

    It’s time like this where being a judge makes me sad, because I can’t partake.

    However I’m in for some tough decisions...

    Oh yeah, we’ll have a Bears Bookies before we kick off

    Damn you, I just went to the whole trouble of doing a column up and at the end stating Bear's Bookies wouldn't have odds out yet you are here saying there will be one. Makes me look like a liar.

    I thought it bared repeating here just to point out how crazy this line up is. Just qualifying is going to be a big effort, no warm up rounds or gimmies here.

    I think I did the maths right. Not counting Doc but including Trips?

    You know what would really impress me? If 75% of those names actually show up for the qualifying round.

    My bad. I should definitely have mentioned the super, super sexy judging panel.

    Out of interest, what the the judges be scoring out of? 5? 10? 100? A shoe?

    'Plan, if I may direct you to the opening post:

    judging everyone against a scale of whatever fits their whim that particular day
    (Realistically I'll be asking for somewhat normalised scores from us all, so they are all at least our of the same total, even if Skul wants to rate people using maple leaves)

    Hoping to get the seeding round up early tonight, with the obligatory topic and stipulations, so this can be for more general discussion as we role on. Of course, it's CSI - anything that can happen probably will happen.

    And also, as previously stated, people don't need to declare themselves here to enter and can just post a column if they feel like it.

    I had assumed that was tongue in cheek. But this is CSI. I should have known better, to my shame.

    You're pretty close!! It'd be a miracle if Shane got involved with this, but I really might have a heart attack if he did.

    Question! I just posted a column earlier today (you can read and feed it here if ya want.http://http://www.lordsofpain.tv/sho...-of-The-OutLAW)

    I've started working on my qualifier. Do I need to worry about the three day rule here? Or am I posting it somewhere else? #firsttimecompissues

    Can’t speak for the others but I’ll be scoring based on a very complicated system. It’s pretty much whoever I like get loads of points, and everyone else i’ll be going to the dog racing, allocating everyone a dog, and the order in which the dogs finish determines their points.

    I’m openly accepting bribes and compliments

    Not at all mate. You just need to post before the stated deadline in the Seeding thread.

    Yep, absolutely Jay, you just need to post your column based on the topic and meeting the stipulations (see the pinned thread) by the deadline. Always good to have new blood!

    As someone who has judged a few things around here, I've always been very grateful for the low word limits in the early rounds. Allows you to still have something of a life.
