NFL Team Destruct/Construct, Day 5: Say Farewell To The Cowboys, Seahawks Almost Gone

Now the the NFL lockout in full force, it appears that the Arizona Cardinals fans have some hate to share. After eliminating both the San Francisco 49ers and Pittsburgh Steelers on consecutive days, these fans have now wiped out another team and put a second on the brink. The Dallas Cowboys are the third team that fans here on RotB have destroyed, and the Seahawks are likely only a day away from elimination.

Eulogy: The Dallas Cowboys have been a popular team. The proclaimed "America's Team" is not the most hated team among the Cardinals faithful, but it is right up there. Sure you have your championships from the 90's, but the Cardinals have four times the playoff victories than the 'Boys in the last 15 years. Adios!

For his striking blow, Drullin'OverDaCards gets a third action for today.

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.

The teams currently stand as such (in parentheses are the actions from the previous day):

Atlanta Falcons 32
