All the votes are in.  I'll be revealing the results very shortly.
11/25/2013 7:24 PM
After all the excitement the vote was as follows:

2 votes for dublinuf
2 votes for hookemhorns

"8) Tribal Council Tie-breaker Rule: If a tie occurs between the top two members receiving votes, a re-vote will occur. During this re-vote, the top two vote-getters who tied DO NOT vote. If any members missed the first vote, they also DO NOT vote. If the re-vote ends up in a tie, the top two vote-getters are now IMMUNE and cannot be voted out. A mini “fire-building” challenge will then occur between all of the tribe members who could not break the tie (except those with immunity), and any members who missed the original vote. The loser of the “fire-building” challenge will be eliminated. 

8a) If tribe numbers are low and only one person would be participating in the “fire-building” challenge, the “fire-building” challenge would then consist of the top two vote-getters."

Per rule 8, polabonez and redraider will get to revote by 11am tomorrow morning.

If after the revote it is still a tie, then we will move to rule 8a(as pola has immunity, so only redraider would be available for a challenge) and dublinuf and hookemhorns will participate in a firebuiling challenge.  I'll post the results/challenge if necessary as soon as I get the re-votes in.

What you mean when Tyson told me that my best move was to vote for raiders he was lying to me?

Shocked I am. Shocked I say. lol

11/26/2013 12:51 AM
hookem chose. Something about your challenge ability...



11/26/2013 12:55 AM
Hey red... Your call on the revote.... But just to quot dubs post from earlier, chapter 7 paragraph 3, lines 8-9

" For the record, if Tyson wins immunity, then you two have to vote with him against me. It is the only way you can win. Then you have to hope it isn't a Final 3 and eliminate Tyson with the next vote."

I'm not saying that's what you should do here... I'm just saying that's what dubs said you should do.

Of course that was before I won immunity.

Do what you will, though.

Dubs, if I vote for hookem here, do you still promise to take me over red to the final two?
11/26/2013 7:02 AM

FINAL THREE CHALLENGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanksgiving weekend is one of the top sports weekends of the year.  We will try to hit a bunch of them with this challenge.

For each sport you will create a starting lineup through a snake style draft.
There will be a lineup for the following sports(all positions based on espn):
NFL
NCAA FB
NCAA BB
NBA
NHL

NFL and NCAAFB: QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, TE, K, Defensive Player
NBA and NCAABB: G, G, F, F, C, 6th man(any position)
NHL: D, D, F, F, F, G (fowards can be centers or wingers)

Scoring:
Football lineups:
Each TD: 6 points
Each FG: 3 points
Each Tackle: 2 points

Basketball:
Each point: 1 point
Each Assist: 2 points
Each Rebound: 2 points

Hockey:
Each goal: 10 points
Each assist: 7 points
Each save: 1 point

The lineups you choose will count any games played between Thursday and Sunday, so in theory NBA, NHL, maybe NCAA BB could have multiple games for a individual player. Most points will win.

I'll have each person submit lists of sport and position and do a snake style draft.
So for instance for the NFL and NCAA FB I'll need a player to list: 3 QBs, 6 RBs, 6 WRs, 3 TEs, 3 Ks, and 3 Def players.
For NBA and NCAA BB: 9 Gs, 9 Fs, 6 Cs, 10 6th men (you cannot list a player on both the G, F, or C and 6th man, player can only be listed for one position)
For NHL: 6 Ds, 9 Fs, 3 Gs

The draft order will be determined as follows:
Pola (for winning the top 5, which became a top 4 challenge) will get to pick the league he wants first. Then the order goes redraider, then winner of firebuilding.  So for each position in the league, thats the order of picking players.  If a position has 2 picks, its snake style, so it would go 1, 2, 3, 3, 2, 1

Redraider gets to pick the next league.
Firebuilder gets the 3rd league.
Pola gets the 4th league
Redraider will get the 5th league.

Just to be clear, ALL 3 participants will have lineups for all 5 leagues, this is just to determine the order of picking players off your list. 

League #1: Polabonez, redraider, firebuild
League #2: redraider, firebuild, polabonez
League #3: firebuild, polabonez, redraider
League #4: polabonez, redraider, firebuild
League #5: redraider, firebuild, polabonez

The league selections will take place in the forum starting 8am on Wednesday morning and will be done by 3pm Wednesday so you have time to adjust your lineups if necessary.  If you don't think you will be around, you can send me your priority list and I can update the forum. Picks will be due by Thanksgiving morning 10am.

If there is tie, the tiebreaker will be most yards by all RBs on your lineups combined.

Please let me know if there are any questions on this.

Ugh, fantasy.

Was really hoping for a 4 day open sportsbook.

Great challenge though, Casey. Both of you guys. All of the challenges were pretty balanced and fun this season.

Except poker.

Good luck to hookem AND dubs in the FB challenge! I can't ever remember a 2v2 scenario in the history that I've seen. Usually a 4 man alliance that makes it and one of them has been the odd man out for a while.

Good ****!
11/26/2013 9:42 AM
Casey,

I want to make sure I understand this. If Pola chooses NFL first, he gets the first pick at QB, TE, K, and Defensive player. He also gets the first and sixth pick at RB and WR. If this correct?

I'm not saying that's what you should do here... I'm just saying that's what dubs said you should do.

Of course that was before I won immunity.

Do what you will, though.

Dubs, if I vote for hookem here, do you still promise to take me over red to the final two?
Tyson,

Sorry I didn't get the chance to respond to you earlier. I considered voting out Dubs based on that very statement. But I made an alliance with him on day 1 of Heroes. I haven't wavered on that. I figued if Dubs is going to be eliminated now it won't be by my vote. Let him and hookem fight it out for the third seat at the table.

Good luck to both of them.
11/26/2013 11:24 AM
Also to clarify something, for basketball - does the 6th man have to not start in the game or is it just a utility type player and we can pick any player at any position?

No Jimmie Graham for you!

My picks are in. Best of luck hookem.

If you beat me, assuming pola doesn't win immunity, you should take Raiders.

I know you feel a loyalty for the immunity save, but the game changes.

Don't forget that in the Autobots tribe that Tyson voted not once but twice to eliminate you in the vote with horvie.

First vote was:
mb, dubs, tsut to eliminate horvie
pola, arfy, horvie to eliminate hookem
hookem to eliminate pola

Second vote was:
mb, dubs, tsut to eliminate horvie
pola, arfy to eliminate hookem

Not saying you should have more loyalty to me than him. That would be ridiculous, but I would be gone by then if you win this anyway. But he didn't prioritize over his alliance. He only prioritized you when they were gone. Make sure to play for you, not anyone else.

11/26/2013 1:48 PM
Man. Everyone is always against pola.
