New RotB Community Game: NFL Team Destruct/Construct, Day 1

As a change of pace for you all, we have come up with a new interactive game to play here on RotB. We get to discuss a lot of draft information and we get to read about the CBA and current negotiations. But with no games actually being played, something fun is in order.

So without further adieu, I present to you NFL Team Destruct/Construct, where the aim of the game is to see what teams outside of the Cardinals are the most beloved among us and the most despised.

The rules come after the jump.

To begin, all the teams in the NFL (except for the Cardinals -- since they are our team, we will not subject them to possible destruction) will begin with 32 points.

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.

Why do the game? Why not? It will kill a few minutes each day and we can eventually rate the hate we have for the rest of the league.

So let the game begin! Again, you can act on any team but the Cardinals. The standings begin as such:

Atlanta Falcons 32

Carolina Panthers 32
