Those who have been on my teams before know that I post notifications and weekly events on every team member's profile page but other than that try to keep wall-spamming down to a minimum. If it bugs anyone just tell me "I got this" and I stop.


This season, regular season seeding actually means something so lets not miss picks. If anyone sees they've got some **** coming along that may prevent them from making picks, just let me know with time to replace them (if it's only a temporary thing I don't even mind replacing them with someone who picks everything and bringing them back when their schedule clears up, I'm loyal like that).

We got ourselves one hellova team. Let's break some bones!!!

@GreenHornet, you can pick whatever you want (I pick whole weekends), only the voted on cards will count for the BLC.

We haven't finished voting on the counting events for this weekend yet, as soon as the captains have finished voting I'll post the weekly thread and let you know which events count.

Looking at your past picks, you basically already picked 99% of BLC counting events so you're not really going to need to change anything :)

Ooookay guys ... we had a pretty sad weekend and the Dilly Dong Cummins handed us our asses.

We're up against the Junkies who are scorching right now and we need to put on our best effort to beat them and get back into contention.

Also, I haven't heard from @cal yet so we may already have the dropped score for the weekend since we've already made our switch for this week and I want to put off dropping @cal until I see we really have to 'cause I like the guy, so each and every one of us has to be on top form (which basically means don't think about your picks, get drunk and go to town with them).

Anyways, with that said, counting events for the weekend are:

[Friday, Feb. 27th, 21:00 ET] Bellator 134: Newton vs. McGeary
[Friday, Feb. 27th, 21:00 ET] Invicta FC 11: Cyborg vs. Tweet
[Friday, Feb. 27th, 22:00 ET] Legacy FC 39: Leite vs. Crowe
[Saturday, Feb. 28th, 04:00 ET] DEEP 71 Impact
[Saturday, Feb. 28th, 09:30 ET] Cage 29
[Saturday, Feb. 28th, 22:00 ET] UFC 184: Rousey vs. Zingano

Let's show we're much better than the last couple off weeks and *read in southern accent* kick some junkie bee-hind, yeehaw!

Well, just got word from @cal, happy to say nothing bad's gone down, just hectic schedule so we're going to have his score dropped this weekend and replace him next week. Sucks, but it is what it is.

Good thing is, I've got time to research and recruit the best possible replacement instead of rushing it, so we'll be cool.

Good enough reason to cancel a fight! Hopefully he gets back in there soon!

Dayum! Sucks, was really looking forward to that fight ... Millender's one of my prospects to watch and Page is always great.

Pretty sure @Nomad would have loved the amount of explosive athleticism that fight was going to bring too.

Not doing too good on the Legacy FC card, but I'm doing awesome on the Bellator card so it all works out (sort of).

'sup guys ... well, it's official ... we're in a rut!

Playoffs just around the corner, we need to get our **** together because as bad as we've been, top spot in the division is still very much up for grabs (yay for being in the weaker division ;) ).

We're playing the Cocaine Cowbows, who just like team joe ker and the Dilly Dong Cummins before them will all make their picks on the same weekend for the first time when matched up with us so we need to bring our A game and kick some butt (starting with me - I've been having my worst BLC season ever, hopefully I can turn it around and get back on my usual level).

Events for the weekend are:

[Thursday, Mar. 5th, 11:00 ET] ProFC Ukraine: Steel Warriors -- THIS IS TOMORROW!
[Friday, Mar. 6th, 14:00 ET] Fight Exclusive Night 6: Showtime
[Friday, Mar. 6th, 22:00 ET] RFA 24: Smith vs. Romero
[Saturday, Mar. 7th, 14:00 ET] Curitiba Fight Pro 3
[Sunday, Mar. 8th, 00:00 ET] DEEP Nagoya Impact

Let's go get 'em!!!

***? I thought DEEP Nagoya Impact locked at 11 PM today?

it locked 4 hours earlier! 

I probably should've picked this earlier, though... sorry, team

EDIT: actually, I guess grizzly didn't change the lock time, it was always programmed to lock 4 hours before 11 PM. my bad.
