    I don't know if it's workable, but I think for these later rounds it would be better to leave the votes open for a certain period of time rather than just getting 5 votes. Why should just 5 people on this site have a say? This would also give you a chance to drum up more interest.

    Just a thought.

    I wish, but unfortunately we're lucky to be getting the five votes needed to win. I've PMed five or so people just to finish off the rounds.

    The Houston Astros cheated Major League Baseball from 2017-18!!!!

    They cheated their way to a couple of League Championships & a World Series!!!!

    Is that how we teach our kids to play the game now?????
