I also suggested this, way back when, but I didn't even see the thread until the brackets had already been made. I kinda felt butt-hurt when nobody patted me on the back for the obviously brilliant idea.

The hard part setting it up was for the OP to decide what molds to put in and how to include all the different types of discs. Who goes in, who gets left out, should there be more drivers than putters? Problem solved with one region being putter, one mid, etc. and the final four being the winner from each category.

One way to decide who makes it to the dance is to have a conference championship, of sorts, and let that set your bracket for you. Start with 32 molds of each type with no seed based matchups, that way almost everybody's fav at least gets a mention and more manufacturer/molds can be represented, and then the top 16 based on popularity make it into the overall championship. The popularity of the 16 that get the most votes then determines the seeding and matchups, instead of it being arbitrarily decided by one person's opinion. My 2 cents, but it's fun no matter how you do it.

The mold class defining each bracket also sounds like a great idea to me. But again, I'm all about leaving it up to polls.

Edit : maybe even the top two for hall of fame would be better than top four.
Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. You definitely can't just have the winner of each year taken out, or we'd have the Roc win this year, the Buzzz next year, then the Teebird, then the Leopard, and so on. This way the Roc v Buzzz conversation will only happen this one year. I love it.

I really like jusractnormal's idea for seeding. That would work good and be fair and could easily just be a poll on here.

i think next year it will be a voting poll in which everyone submits their own 64 ideals maybe a month / week prior, and top 64 move into the bracket.

hooray! Finally my interweb skills have been 3rd party validated!

Although, I did just realize that if you were to put 32 molds of a given type together and then have a popularity contest to see which ones will be put into their side of the bracket, then there would be no need for the bracket and you might as well just skip to the final 4. You'd need to mix the mold types for any of the other rounds to matter. So maybe I'm not so brilliant after all.

To explain what I mean, think of this. Imagine mids are north and fairways are south. You put up a poll and have people vote for their faves narrow 32 down to 16 to go into their respective brackets, seeded based on popularity. Roc wins top seed in the north and teebird is top seed in the south (naturally). If the same people vote on the same matchups again i.e. mid v/s mid/ fairway v/s fairway, the #1 seed will always win b/c it was the most popular to begin with. The mid that was most popular out of 32 choices will still be the most popular out of 16 choices, and 8 choices and so on. There would never be any "upsets" b/c the initial popularity contest to determine the #1 seed will still be the most popular given fewer and fewer choices. See what I mean? Might as well skip to the final 4.

The only way to do it is to start with 32 and have a popularity poll to determine seeding of that disc respective to its "peers". Then you gotta mix the 16 winners up. Putter v/s Driver, Mid v/s Fairway and so on.... all mixed up. It's still very likely that the #1 seeds will win their bracket. If they don't then you will end up with something like 3 drivers and 1 mid in the final 4 or 2 putters and 2 drivers, something crazy like that but at least it will make for some interesting matchups along the way.

Sometimes what initially appears to be a brilliant idea becomes a complete pile of sh*t on closer examination.

Just voted on the Round of 16. I'm in 61st place... that's what I get for picking molds I throw (i.e. voting with my heart, and not my head). It still have a few decent horses in the race: Leopard, Challenger, Buzzz... but those early rounds killed me.

FTFY:

Was j looking and notice that the op pretty much nailed it as the only disc outside a four seed to make the sweet 16 is the gator, and its a 5.
