March Madness - Footballers' Edition!

Postby aterford » Sat Mar 21, 2020 7:12 pm

Hi all,

Put together a small survey/bracket for just a bit of mindless fun - take your mind off of all the coronavirus craziness for a few minutes, especially with many of us now being mostly stuck at home for the foreseeable future.

It's a 64-participant March Madness-style bracket, only it's pitting 64 footballers against each other.

I took the top-64 most valuable players on Transfermarkt to populate the field. The first through fourth-most valuable players were given 1-seeds; fifth- through eighth-most valuable given 2-seeds, and so on, all the way down to 60th-64th getting 16-seeds.

Once those blocks of four-per-seed were established each one was randomized and inserted into the bracket. 1-seeds play 16-seeds, 2-seeds play 15-seeds, and so on.

So, it's pretty arbitrary, based just on TM value, but I couldn't think of any other 'objective' way to get a 64-player field that wouldn't take ages to compile, so it is what it is. Anyways, like I said, just for fun, so nothing to take too seriously anyways.

Here's the link for the first round of the "tournament". I'll let it run for a day or so before updating for the second round, just like NCAA tournament format.

Have fun and stay safe out there.

Oh man! Rookie mistake. I had copied over the format from the first 'round', which I closed off for responses at the 24hr mark. It should be open for submission now.

We're on to the sweet sixteen. This time it shouldn't be locked, though....https://forms.gle/xqibk9NrZ52nhzbp6

Some big upsets (IMO)!
Varane over Kane (I really rate Varane, but that surprised me!), Havertz over Silva, Dybala over Trent?

Down to just the final eight now. Unfortunately one of Lewy/Alaba must go.
