My fellow Browns fans whom are on the Internet. I love you.

A few years ago on a different site regarding a different sport we did battles. These battles were fans of sports team taking on other fans of sports teams and it was a lot of fun. Each team had 5 participants and they would dual 1-1, the field of battle was the internet and the mind.[/i]

More precisely the form of battle were essays, we would write essays about Rugby League and them submit them to a moderator who would then grade them and then post them when the results were in. Sometimes we won, and most of the time we lost as we were genuinely not as smart as some other posters.
But even as we lost, we actually won because you end up reading 10 great essays that are of very good quality, like better than a lot of internet news media quality.

Brothers (I am assuming there aren't sisters here...) I say we form an internet team, an army of Browns fans.... I am asking you to imagine beating the Steelers forum on FF, we could make a public spectical of them.

SO this off season, would a team of FF Browns fans like too unite and take on another team and have an essay battle??

Let me know if you are keen and I will pick a fight for us.


I was thinking we could do a 1 off battle and if it was worth while we could do a small tournament?
Rules that I have thought of are 1500 word limit, which is not that much.
It is not an academic essay, you do not need to reference.
One image or GIf no videos.
Grading is on the quality of reading, not grammar, or spelling....
We adhere to all forum rules as previously stated, no religion, race, sexual things in the essays.
the theme is football and this can be addressed as the writer sees fit, it could be scouting, going to the game, throwing the ball with your dad, CTE anything really....
Moderated is by a neutral person ie Steelers fans don't mod Browns v Steelers.
Scoring is football based ie
TD and 2 point conversion 8= awesome work
TD and Extra point 7= Great work
TD and miss the conversion 6= good work
FG= decent
Saftey= fair
shut out did not submit.
It takes place over a week. Teams formed, mod announces who is taking on who....

The win goes to the team with the highest total.

Thoughts? keen to participate?
