The last half of the Sweet Sixteen. Only two men will remain standing in each bracket after today's voting.
Yesterday's results, revealed below, have left me wondering about the integrity of this whole process. Methinks that some (many?) of us are voting based on what we currently think of certain players and less based on how we felt about them in their appropriate era. If that's not what's happening, I can't understand how Robb Nen won in a landslide over Orestes Destrade yesterday. I expected Destrade to win, but could see Nen winning. It shocks me that it was a blowout though.
If you're just joining us, check out the entry from Day One, which gives something of an overview for the whole process.

If you'd like to write the brief description for a particular player (or players), send me an email or create a diary with your text. I'll be happy to use it.
Feel free to use this thread to discuss who you voted for, who you think others should vote for, etc. Or, if you'd prefer, you can create a separate diary too. You can also feel free to include any objections/suggestions/criticsm in the comments.
