After a long, grueling tournament, the Dirty Hippies have been declared the OIL's best uniforms. Congratulations to Trovillo and the Hippies, who also won the 2014 OIL Bowl and Liberty Bowl.
It's been a long road, but the OIL Uniform Tournament is down to its final two teams. Vote below to decide which franchise has the best logo and uniform set in the OIL.
#10 Dead Again vs. #1 Dirty Hippies
The second round is over, and only eight teams remain. There were a few upsets along the way, so nothing is predictable at this point. Vote in the four quarterfinal matchups below.
The first round of the OIL Uniform Tournament saw few upsets, but several matchups were decided by three votes or less. The second round includes the top four seeds who had a bye in round one. Make your choices below.
As promised, now begins the 2015 tournament to decide which OIL franchise has the best logo and uniform set. The seeds were determined by a survey conducted over several months. The first round will last two weeks. For a complete look at every franchise's logo in one place, click here (or the image below). Click on any logo on that page to view that franchise's uniforms.
The Polls (Click on the logo above the poll to see that team's uniforms)
We plan on a "tournament" in the offseason to determine which franchise in our league has the best "brand." In order to properly seed the teams, I'm asking those who are interested to rank the franchises based on:
- Name (including story behind name, if any)
This page has every franchise's logo, and you can click on the logo to view the team's uniforms and backstory.
I very much appreciate any and all responses we get. Once the season is over, we'll start our tournament to help pass the time until next season.
It's time for Fantasy Football March Madness. After the break, you can vote on each of the 32 first-round matchups. Click the bracket for the full size image. Get to voting and let's see who is the consensus number one player heading into the 2014 fantasy football season.
In honor of March Madness, the DBFA and the OIL are once again conducting an NCAA-style 64-player tournament to answer one question: Who is the most valuable player going into the 2014 season? Forget the debates. Forget the split-screen arguing. You won't see anyone yelling at each other here (unlike a certain four-letter sports network). We live in a democracy, and that's how we'll settle this argument.
MGL Commissioner and Visitors Section co-host Josh Hastings ranked his top 64 fantasy football players heading into 2014. OIL Commissioner Justin C. Cliburn turned that list into a 64-man bracket using BracketMaker.com. You may log into BracketMaker with your Facebook account or create an account on the site. Hastings's list is based on standard scoring, even though the OIL uses PPR. And players are listed as belonging to the team they play for right now. Things will change. But this is March, and we're starved for football.
You can access that bracket here, and make your picks. The winner will receive something from the DBFA store. The player who comes out on top will receive a letter of congratulations from the OIL along with memorabilia from the DBFA store.
The deadline to submit your bracket picks is Saturday, March 15, and the voting for individual matchups begins Sunday, March 16. Polls will be posted here for each round, and you, the reader, will vote on who should advance. So, without further adieu, here is your 2014 bracket:
