I guess the title says it all. I don't want to bash anybody or anything, but that imaginary tournament on slash by that Michael Coale guy is kind of... well... lame, I guess.

Am I alone here?

It's being simmed on TNM 7, which to me is nice because it's sort-of an objective view on how all the matches play out. He might have done some tweaking with the stats and such, but at least it's not one of those tournaments where people put over their favorites.

But, on the other hand, I guess I'd kinda like to see more of the fantasy booking that goes along with it, like what would have happened during the match, was it give-and-take or did somebody pull off an upset or sneak out with a win, etc. Speaking from experience, I know that writing a fantasy booking to go along with your fantasy tournament is rather time-consuming, so maybe that's some of it. If I agree with you on one thing, it's that just having a box score with who won and a mild analysis of the matchups isn't that interesting. But, it's just for fun, so why not just go with the flow and enjoy it for what it is?

Oh, and his name is Mark Coale. Michael Cole is the gay guy on Smackdown!

A lack of time and space has led to less description on this year's tournament.

For those wanting more info though, I can tell you that the Final Four and Championship matches are done and will have full running play-by-play. Those of you TNM veterans know of what I speak and how long and cumbersome it can be, especially with the HTML tree.

(Look for those results to be released thursday or friday.)
