Round two seeding. (http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/showpost.php?p=6809691&postcount=423)

In our second matchup, Rooster Cogburn is going to die.

This is just unfair. Look at Rooster. He's all "WTF?"

Even so, we'll give John Wayne a good send off.

I think the only Batman Rooster could defeat would be Adam West, and it would still be tough.

How the hell did we end up with this matchup? That is like a number 1 seed that gets the winner of the play in game.

That's kind of what it is. The person with the highest percent of votes in Round 1 takes on the person with the 32nd-highest, 2nd takes on 31st, etc. It minimizes the odds of the two strongest contenders facing each other early in the tournament.

Batman in an easy victory. This shit doesn't last more than 10 seconds.....max.

We might as well declare Superman the winner than because he could beat anybody on this list. Or everyone could bring kryptonite to the party and Superman would die in the 1st round.

I was pretty sure this wasn't a "who could beat up who" action hero deal, I thought it was a popularity contest, like with smells.

I like it.

I'd hate for Bourne and Batman to meet randomly in round 1 while random seedings also somehow create a second round match that includes the winner of a random Rooster Cogburn v. Foghorn Leghorn battle in the first round.

I think we'll see a few upsets this round anyway (particularly when we move away form 1 v 8 seedings)--and not many easy battles in the second round because of this system...

I think the general criteria for entry into the tournament was that the person could not have superhuman powers. They had to compete as God or Darwin or some DARPA laboratory made them.

We've got a few contenders who may cross the line a little bit, but for the most part that rule holds.

So, for Round 3, should I stick to the initial seedings, or create new seedings based on round two?

I think you stick with initial seedings like the NCAA basketball tournament.

If a #7 seed (Wolverine, for instance) knocks off a #2 seed, it should be playing the winner of the #3 vs. #6 match. #1 seeds (assuming they all win) should be playing the winner of the #4 vs. #5 match.

My initial thinking was to reseed, so if someone got a really easy random draw in Round 1 it wouldn't affect their whole tournament. A strong contender will continue to rise in the seedings.
