And out of the four people brought back, all 4 will be asked to argue their case, and one person will be fired from each team.
Whoa. A twist in the boardroom always makes the game more interesting.

This sounds absolutely delicious. However, since we are on opposing teams, I must now say that I hate you. So here goes: I hate you.

So freakin' good. And the best part is, prior to this, my wife says "So what do you want, thanksgiving tacos or beef brisket bar-b-que sandwiches?" I almost said both.

Is it even possible for it not to be a sell out? That would've broken the tie and we would've won. That's why I shouldn't be fired. The freebie idea killed us.

And you didn't say both?!?!? Those are both awesome choices. I was wondering one thing about the Thanksgiving taco. Was it served in a flour or corn tortilla or something different, like torta bread?

Totally legit and a good comeback...I'll bring mine in a bit. As for naming you, I felt pretty crappy doing so but the bulk of this idea was tajikey (and we didn't lose so I can't call him out) and clarka was the guy I called out in my first loss. You remain, and I agree you've been a heckuva strong member and you'll be strongly missed if you're gone. But it's gotta be someone if not me. I'm hoping we win instead!

Hard for me to explain, maybe clarka could, but it's the same shell their duck taco is in. It's flour but it's not soft and it's not your typical hard, it's kind of wavy and crispy and really hard to eat without everything falling out. But it is delicious.

As for tortas...when I lived in Bloomington our local Mexican place made the best carnitas torta in the world. So so so so delicious.

Okay, as for me - the first time I was PM I tried to go my own way a bit and it was shot down (even though I feel it was a solid idea) so with this one I really wanted to incorporate pieces of everyone's ideas. In the end the idea was a little bit me, a little bit tajikey, and a little bit Clarka. Wish it was a bit suns too, but the idea you had didn't really work with what we had so...kinda hard to make that work with us.

As for the idea itself, I think it was real solid. And obviously the Donald did too since we at least tied. I don't see how you can hate on an idea where Matt Cassel gets his due. I like the other team's idea as a baseball fan, but I feel our idea meets more of the entire fan experience with the mixing of sports/entertainment and would make a whole lot more money with auto signings/paid raffle entries/etc. We're gonna meet the needs of a lot more people and that's an awesome thing. The other team is gonna get Royals fans and people who dig baseball in general, which is fine, but we'd have more people interested in being there.

And as for you personally sunsfan, I really mean no hard feelings. You've been freaking awesome throughout this thing and I really hope you aren't voted out. But it's late in the game and someone has to go and you contributed the least to this challenge. It is what it is.

Haha thanks man, and I totally understand. I was very tempted to name myself because you're such a strong member, but at the same time I'm not ready to go either. Our team is real strong and I'm taking the risk that we'll all stick around with someone on the other team losing.

Heres the problem with hoping we lose one of you is going home regardless. As DBO put it one person from each team will be fired

Whoops. Well if I go I'll still play cheerleader for the remaining guys. So tell you what Donald...I nominate myself to be tossed. Sunsfan has some solid ideas and I'd rather see him use those than me. It's been real though.

Whoa, what a turn of events. For my team, I just want to say thanks for all of your help. No hard feelings but I am going to have to pick SportCardBuffet to come into the boardroom with me.

Have you guys learned nothing? Throwing yourself under the bus doesn't mean that the other guy won't get fired too.

Ouch, after my good idea.

My argument:
Not much to say. I contributed my ideas to the team which were used in the final submission. Our team did great, in the event of a tie I think it should fall on the PM since they were not able to pull us through to victory.

It's true, but sunsfan has been an idea wizard in this thing. Do I need to go back and find good quotes to prove his worth? Aka the anti-boardroom? Support the other guy instead of supporting yourself lol

The idea you mention I used was suggested by cinnakoak as well, exact same thing (seriously I have the pms) It was a tough decision but cinnakoak and ilovethelakings both submitted from the beginning and contributed to form the initial idea. I just feel that the other two members contributed more from start to finish and as we come down to the final 6, it should be members that are active.

DBO - I would like all the members on the chopping block a question. Who would you fire if you were me from the nominated members that are not on your own team?

I'd fire sportscardbuffet. He's been solid but Nodie always cracked me up on the other team.

man, i didn't read DBO's first decision post clearly, because I was wondering why my two guys were clawing at each other in the boardroom!

I would go with Spastikmoss. Without knowing who contributed to the final idea, the fact that the event was free seems absurd. The task was to see who had the highest attendance and having a free event will of course pack the stadium, but it has too many assumptions about owners picking up the tab and footing the bill on everything. Also, it assumes the Chiefs will get involved as well. Seems like an unrealistic free event that could never happen.
