NFL Team Destruct/Construct, Day 4: Cardinals Fans Eliminate Steelers, Cowboys On The Brink

We are now on day four of the game that is sweeping across the nation. Cardinals fans continue showing the hate. A day after eliminating the hated San Francisco 49ers, the next team to go was the Pittsburgh Steelers. It appears that, despite being a major pipeline for coaches and players, fans have not forgiven them for the last minute loss in the 2009 Super Bowl. After triple-checking, there was some doubt as to whether or not the Dallas Cowboys were also eliminated, but due to the ambiguity of one user who only used one action and not two, Dallas is still in the game, but is breathing its last bit of air.

Eulogy: We now mourn cheer the loss of the team that stole Cardinals fans the only joy they might have ever felt in their lifetime of fandom. That questionable great catch by Santonio Holmes will haunt us forever. Sure they have six championships and they gave us our head coach, defensive coordinator, special teams coach and half our team several players, but your death certainly will not elicit tears (unless they are tears of joy) from us

Thomaldo was the user delivering the deciding blow. As a result, he has for Friday an extra action, giving him three he can use today.

Check out the new points and make your moves. In parentheses are the previous day's actions

Each day, the teams will earn or lose points based on your actions, so the more people we get in on the game, the more pointless enjoyment we can have.

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.
