Hello Mutherfuckers. The 7th season of the Bloody Elbow Civil War will start in just under a week. The last event of the current season will be next Wednesday, August 28 with UFC Fight Night: Condit vs. Kampmann 2. The first event of the next season will begin on Saturday, August 31 with UFC 164: Henderson vs. Pettis. Needless to say, there's a lot of ground to cover in a short amount of time. So let's get started with the sign-ups, shall we?
RETURNING PLAYER SIGN-UPS
If you are returning from last season, this is the form you need to fill out in order to be eligible to return. New players, please don't fill it out, I'll get to you in a moment.
Please fill out every part of that form. Especially the last part, which is absolutely necessary.
Captains, an email was sent out asking which players you would like to keep, please fill those out. For the players, you can elect to remain with your team or become a free agent. Just fill out the question asking if you would like to be kept by your previous captain in the appropriate manner and it will be handled. Please note that you are not obligated to return to your previous team.
DRAFT DATE AND TIME
The draft will happen sometime from the 29th up to the 31st. Captains, please be sure to fill out this Doodle with the time that works best for you. Most captains have filled it out, just waiting on PFP and Andy Davis.
If a captain does not fill it out, he will be declared a no-show and be replaced by an alternate. This doodle is only for captains, so if you're not a captain do not fill the form out.
The returning captains for next season will be:
Paulo Filho's Psychiatrist
In addition, these players' captains stepped down and their teams will be taken over by:
Our Bovine Public (replacing ScorecardOTN)
Hayabusa2000 (replacing Andy Anderson)
Finally, these two captains will start from scratch, as no one from the other two teams stepped up.
Sonnen's Political Advisor
For players looking to pop their BECW cherry next season, please be patient. New player information will come in the next few days, so be on the lookout for that. One thing that I will mention is if you want to be a player for next season is that the new players do not have to be from the prospects camp. Just go to MMAPlayground.com, make a new account if you don't have one, or sign in if you do, and make picks for UFC Fight Night before the picking deadline. Just know you have a better shot of getting picked if you have picked multiple events, proving to be reliable.
Captains, talk shit, be rude, be ugly, be unpleasant and be everything that Lanky is in order to make rivalries that will determine how divisions will be made. And if someone has creative names for divisions, please share them, because we pretty much had nothing last season.
That is all the information for now, so handle that if you want to return for next season.
