Title: World Idol 2017
Post by: Nige on March 20, 2017, 09:29:03 PM
Everybody's favourite knockout competition is back!

To quote the great former admin - ossie85, here's how it works:

A simple game...

The lowest scoring team is eliminated each week, until we have a winner!

You can get immunity from elimination if you had the highest score the week before (up until round 10) - in which case the 2nd lowest scoring team is eliminated.

So, who has what it takes to be World Idol?



Eliminated Teams
R1: London
R2: Cape Town
R3:
R4:
R5:
R6:
R7:
R8:
R9:
R10:
R11:
R12:
R13:
R14:
R15:
R16:
R17:
Winner:

Firstly, major apologies for the delay in this. I was quite busy last week and just had no chance to get anything done.

Round 1

Unfortunately for London, they put in an effort they're almost certainly embarrassed by and it was something they'd hope to never repeat.

Round 2

If you told be that Cairo would be the last African team standing in World Idol in 2017, I'd have believed you. Yeah that's right, Cape Town have made a rather unexpected early exit from this battle royal.

Cape Town with an early exit! New York would breath a sigh of relief

We don't need to aim anywhere, the team we've assembled will win it all on its own.

If I were you, I'd be focusing on how pie dublin are, particularly when its been proven you cannot perform in finals.

will re post this

my finals record in the last 2 years.

is

174 Won Round 1
147 Won Prelim
147 Won Premiership
160 Won Round 1
136 Loss Prelim

Average 153

I have had 1 bad game in 2 years (or should i say 1 NDT caliber game).

142 Won Round 1
133 Won Semi
156 Won Prelim
136 Lost Grand final

Average 142

basically you had 1 lucky week in the prelim and were lucky to make it out of the Semi's.

essentially it comes down to this, my team is far superior but if i catch you on a lucky week and im having one of my poor weeks then you will beat me. My average is almost better then your best score.

Can confirm. Cloke is the barometer.

Did someone say a new feature to World Idol? Oh yes, it's happening!  :o We're now gonna give a shoutout to the team that might want to just do that little bit better to avoid being the star of our show next week.

Round 3

This week we say goodbye to our Russian friends as Moscow bow out of World Idol after a less than inspiring performance and we're not sure who'll be more disappointed about it - Jukes, Torp, Putin or the playing group!

In the firing line:

Buenos Aires haven't been setting the world on fire after sending Scott Pendlebury back to Toronto and they barely survived this week, so they might want to lift their game or face the boot.

Griffen - 10
Waite - 4
McVeigh - ?
Wells - soon
Roughead - 6-8

Can't see us holding on until these guys are back.

Can't see myself picking the correct captain any week this year.

Round 4

We called it and it happened, Buenos Aires have finally fallen victim to their consistently poor scoring. Honestly, we should probably commend them on surviving this long but instead we'll smile and wave.

In the firing line:

Last week we mentioned ol' Scott Pendlebury who returned back to Toronto - rumour has it they're contemplating giving him a bit of a rest so he can carry them for the rest of the season. Big if true, but that option could spell the end of their 2017 Idol days.
