His piece "As a lifelong Buc fan I sit and I stew...." beat out Cracker Ball's "Stinkeroo" post by one whole point out of a possible 50!
While bias insinuations are sure to be coming up probably as soon as comment one, the truth is I was more than fair in my assesment of the only two stories that were even close to being elegible.
Thanks To keysersoze for trying, but I completely edited his post, thus it was ineligible (and Illegible too if I may add, waka waka). Hopefully next contest we can get greater participation.
Here is the scoring used to determine the winner:
ORIGINAL THOUGHT- Total 20 Points Rob20819 6, Cracker Ball 7 - Reason being I have been kinda saying the same thing lately, and Cracker Balls rant on our draft practices was more original.
QUALITY OF CONTENT- Total 20 Points Rob20819 8 Cracker Ball 7 - I felt both pieces were laid out pretty nice, but when reading aloud, Rob20819's flowed better when reading the two after one another a few times.
PUNCT/GRAMMAR- Total Points 10 Rob20819 8, Cracker Ball 7 - I copied and pasted each story into Word 2008. Cracker Ball had two incomplete sentences pointed out, and one mispelling. Rob had two mispellings but no major fragments.
INTANGIBLES- I had a few friends read both, people who do not read Bucem at all, and 3 of 4 liked Robs piece better. I felt that was security I needed to make sure I wasn't being biased, besides, I agree with Cracker Ball too, our drafting has sucked bad!!
