At 8:44 AM AZ time on Thursday morning, the Baltimore Ravens became the 21st casualty in the fan hate game. Now only 10 teams remain and it looks like it will be a struggle to drum up something more than indifference.
Who will be the next victim? One would think that a team like the Bengals would be an easy target, considering the antics of talented, yet eccentric receivers Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco. Or maybe it will be the Panthers, who logged one of only two season wins against the Cardinals in 2010.
In any case, only ten teams to go.
Eulogy: The Ravens are gone. No birds are left. Yes, there are some likable players like former Sun Devils Todd Heap and Terrell Suggs or former Cardinal Anquan Boldin, but there are also some players you don't want to like. Ray Lewis, as great as he has been, can elicit hate. Maybe it is because they won a Super Bowl with Trent Dilfer as quarterback and every time he opens his mouth to say anything on ESPN we want to punch him in the mouth because we don't consider him a real former NFL QB. Maybe it is simply because there is a line between love and hate, and that line is hard to comprehend.
Robloosi shot the BB that felled the Ravens, so he is the owner of a shiny new extra action for today.
Each day, you have two actions. You can destroy or build. In the comments, simply write your actions:
- Destroy (team name of your choice), Build (team name of your choice)
- Double destroy (team name of your choice)
- Double build (team name of your choice)
Each "destroy" subtracts a point from the team. Each "build" adds a point to the team's total. Once a team reaches zero points, it is eliminated from the game and the next day with the game update, it will receive a brief eulogy.
The player whose "destroy" is the eliminating move will get a congratulations and a mention in the update and an additional action for the next day, giving him/her three actions for a day.
