The novelty wore off? Or maybe I just was in a different mood? When I go into these things, I always go by my current mood, I never try to compare the current round to any round that had come before. This round was heavily influenced by me thinking that I would have preferred other bands in the final round. Not necessarily mine (I wouldn't have complained, though, I'm convinced that this draft had my best band so far). I think that Caleb had a good band. Kazzar had a good band. Kuhan had great individual picks. And then there was Keyser, who Kuhan and me made up on the fly because we only had seven players and I didn't want the luck of the bye to be a deciding factor in this draft. Compared to all of those bands (and that's just from the top of my head), I thought that your band was really weak this time around. And so was Abin's. And with the semi-finals being neck to neck for the majority of the week, I really would have preferred a Hairs vs Beards finale.
That colored my mood when it came to voting. Which might have led to this tie.

Exactly all of this. Except I voted for Surly anyway.

Thank you, Kuhan.
We still should have done this one back around Halloween, thematically speaking.

Yeah, but back then, we had too many other drafts going on.

Abin would probably agree with you on his band, as Kuhan stole everything, but I loved my band. My two favorites are the ones which won. I liked the Jays, too, but it's hard to top the Blunch Blacks and the Christ Punchers.

If Abin had voted for himself instead of for Bruce, Abin would have won 5-4.

What was going on there?

That's not sportmanship. That's taking a dive in the third round.

Maybe Abin didn't think he belonged in the third round. There's teams I would've voted for over myself... not in this draft, but in others, I would've (and did)
