Basically, each NFL team will be given a certain number of points. Each poster can choose to "Heal" a certain team (that they like) and they will be given a point, or "Kill" a team, and a point will be taken away. You can perform two actions every 24 hrs. You can even "Double Kill" a team if you really, really don't like them for your daily two actions or "Double Heal" a team if you really, really love them. Once a team is eliminated, obviously you can't vote for them anymore.
Philadelphia Eagles: 8 points
St. Louis Rams: 14 points
BigBlueIntervention: Save St. Louis and Kill Filthadelphia
Philadelphia Eagles: 7 points
St. Louis Rams: 15 points
The point is to get a feeling about which teams BBV likes and dislikes and will ultimately give a ranking from 1-32. Obviously the Giants won't be included and I get the feeling two teams will be eliminated quite quickly. It's simple and pointless, but hey, we do it because we can.
If y'all aren't feeling it, I'll just delete it, but if you are, rec it to keep it up top and I'll edit it daily until we're out of teams. We'll start with 32 points for each team, so let's get it.

ONE PERSON MAY ONLY HAVE A MAXIMUM ALLOWANCE OF 4 ACTIONS PER DAY, EVEN IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN 2 FINISHING BLOWS.
1) Philadelphia Eagles Finishing Blow by OregonBlu. You now have one extra action per day.
2) Dallas Cowboys Finishing Blow by Simms-McConkey. You now have one extra action per day.
3) New York Jets Finishing Blow by tito (eight and oh). You now have one extra action per day.
4) Washington Redskins Finishing Blow by daddyzander. You now have one extra action per day.
5) Baltimore Ravens Finishing Blow by OregonBlu. You now have on extra action per day.
All those who voted already for DAY 9, and any new players, can now vote for DAY 10.
To speed things up, the Titans blog implemented a new rule that gives posters EXTRA POINTS. This is the new rule:
You may use your two (or three) points as usual. If you see a post that you agree with, reply to that post with an "AGREE" to add an extra free point to that action. This may be done ONLY ONCE PER DAY and a post can be agreed with ONLY ONCE. So if someone already used their "agree" action, too bad. If the post is a split vote, you can choose which one you want to help (or hurt). If this results in eliminating a team, congrats! You provided the finishing blow and will be credited for it. For example:
BigBlueIntervention: Double Kill Baltimore
Simms-McConkey: AGREE (-1 Baltimore)
tito (eight and oh): Kill San Francisco and Save Detroit
56 THE REAL LT: AGREE (+1 Detroit)
This game, which originated on the Titans blog by natidog, has spread all over SBNation! I'll be posting links to other sites, so we can see how our beloved Giants hold up in the rankings from all over the NFL.
Pride of Detroit (Detroit)
IF YOU CAN, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD TO OTHER BLOGS. The hope is to have one monster aggregate ranking at the end so that we'll know who the most favorite and most hated teams in America are!
