    THE RULES!

  2. Please remember that this tournament is for you to vote using your opinion? not that of anyone else.


  3. This tournament is for your choice for your favorite/best Iconic Image from sports. The ONLY voting criteria should be that it is your favorite or the one you consider the best. .


  4. This tournament will have a new vote APPROXIMATELY every 48hours (except for the final rounds which will be extended additional days for maximum votes).


  5. To vote, all you need to do is look at the most recent vote announcement (one of my posts, and it will have a coloured bar each new round for easy visual recognition) and pick one image from each pair. If you want to vote for one of the pairs but not the other, feel free to do so! But if you vote for anything other than what is up for the vote, your post will be ignored.


  6. Please feel free to engage in some discussion, especially comments as to why you voted for what. This makes tournaments so much more interesting!


  7. If at any time you'd like to see who has been eliminated and who is still in the running, please check the 2nd post of this thread, where I will be highlighting in black all eliminated images. Please note that the region names listed in this post and used throughout the tournament have no meaning behind them whatsoever. They are an identifier only.


  8. No voting with socks!



  9. Many thanks to NYCitygurl who provided the backbone of this opening post.
