Well done, boss. We've got ourselves a pretty well-oiled machine going on, even with the one loss so far.

Not saying my idea would have won us the match, as the Jax Gladiators had a nice ring to it. Was not enthused with the choice of Gladiators that we went with. Doing something with Andy Whitfield's likeness of Spartacus or hell, even Russell Crowe as Maximus would have been more appealing to the younger generation (more likely to be fans of Jax since it was an expansion team). The "American Gladiators" fad was pretty much on the way out before Jax got a team, and I think it would have missed the mark with the generation of the country/city likely to be fans of the franchise. Who is going to pay the outrageous price of admission to an NFL game to play American Gladiator themed mini-games when all of those types of games can be found cheaper. I'm a serious NFL fan, and I wouldn't pay to take my kid (imaginary) to a game only to have to babysit them in the fun zone with these games. Want to do the joust? you can make two pugil sticks for cheap. Want to do that event where they had to dodge the tennis balls being shot at em? use nerf equipment around the house or hell, go paintballing. We all know those were the best two events anyway aside from the eliminator and that kill-the-carrier type game.

going with the Jacksonville Juggernauts (my idea) would have been more appealing than the direction we went. Working a deal with Marvel to get the likeness of the comic book juggernaut for the logo would have been a nice win to get younger fans into the franchise for merchandising alone. Add in Juggernaut animations on the screens and maybe some "juggernauts" walking the aisles, you've got enough entertainment for a kid that keeps them in their seat that you paid 100 plus bucks for.

Plus, Juggernaut is an unstoppable force, whereas gladiator is just somebody that fights in the arena- meaning a juggernaut would have been more intimidating as far as meanings go and had at least a tenuous tie to the city (jax being the largest US city by square mileage).

As far as my track record with the team, i have constantly eschewed ideas that were goofy in nature as I know they would be hilarious, but test hilariously bad. Each silly idea we went with has resulted in a loss for the squad. I came up with the bulk of the last challenge for the crew as well- which turned out to be our only win thus far.

Surprised I got the nod to come in. I strongly believe it was a move by the team leader to remove a strong competitor from the game. Lastly, let's not forget the idea to bring in the mustache was none other than Spastik's, with Newton jumping on the wagon for a mustache ride immediately. Gonna throw me to the wolves? I'll bring you right there with me to the lion's den.

Haha well said! I mostly nominated you because I couldn't think of a real good second person (I mean sure tajikeyrosa hasn't offered good ideas but the pics are hilarious) so there's that.

As for going with the Gladiators...I agree it's dated but with the Hogan connection in Florida and the chance for the games to be more than just games, I figured Florida residents might love the Gladiators idea. That said, I still threw the "any new ideas, opinions on old ideas, further fleshing out of any ideas?" post out there a few times on the 2nd and the 3rd and heard mostly crickets. Lil' feedback would've been nice

If you've missed the events of the last couple days, my character has lost her husband. Now, before entering this contest, I had no clue that I'd feel THIS close to Omarosa, and frankly, had I known this connection would develop, I'd have gone with Rancic instead. So, with that said, let's be a little bit more sensitive to my needs. It's hard to generate ideas at a time like this...

RIP Pooky Bear

It was a great team win - lots of input - kinda sad to see Roadkill's descent into backbiting and animosity.

Haha exactly. I almost picked a different name but it's a lot more fun to play it overly dramatic

I know the decisions are going to become much harder for Mr. DBo once the lazier participants have been fired.
