NFL Team Destruct/Construct, Day 9: Raiders Gone, Patriots Dead, Then Saved, Then Dead Again

New, comments

The past 24 hours was exciting for this game. Two teams were eliminated, but there was some drama (if you want to call it that). The Raiders are gone and it looked like the Patriots would follow quickly. But one user saved them, putting them back on life support. Too bad for them was that they were promptly killed again. All it did was give a different user the kill shot.

Eulogies:

Oakland Raiders: You have died, but your scary looking owner has not (at least that is what they say). We really don't like you or your fans. The bravado, the masks, the tattoos and the overall freakiness is just a turn-off.

New England Patriots: You thought you were too good for death. But you weren't. Tom Brady's girl hair and Bill Belichick's hoodie and secret will not be missed. Oh yeah, so will Brady's chin.

RottPhiler for his elimination of the Raiders and AlaskanCard for the second and final kill of the Pats get three actions today (Sorry, J Steezy, Jessesb is the culpable party)

Previous days' results:

Day 8 Day 7 Day 6 Day 5 Day 3 Day 2

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
