2019 Detroit Lions Name Bracket Tournament: The Finals

New, comments

It all comes down to this. This is for all the marbles. You can’t hold anything back. Win or go home.... but you don’t have to go home, you just can’t stay here.

The Name Bracket Hacker has been disposed of. After insulting the age and intelligence of NBH in the Elite Eight, he/she/they made one last desperate attempt to take a stranglehold of the tournament.

I had had enough. This was it. I was drawing my line in the sand. This was the final showdown. Shootout at high noon. It was either him or this tournament. One had to go.

For the first time in Name Bracket history, I threw out the ballots. To those votes that got burned in the furnace, I’m sorry. Your sacrifice was necessary to save us. I spent hundreds of seconds looking for a “hacker-proof” survey service (for free) and I was fruitful in my endeavor. So I posted a brand-new poll and waited for the results to roll in...

OH, WHAT THE HELL, YOU GUYS?

The finals: Leo Koloamatangi vs. Amani Oruwariye

Instead of making my own arguments for these names, I’m going to pass the mic to y’all. Here’s what you had to say about each of our finalists.

The case for Leo Koloamatangi

Isn’t... Leo Kolamatangi the bad guy in “Live and Let Die”?

Leo Koloamatangi saying it out loud reminds me when they used to scream “Shivakamini Somakandarkram” on The League

The case for Amani Oruwariye

Ee Oulo:

Oruwariye is this year’s gold standard in names due to it’s full range of appeal in it’s own tongue twister perfection. Once mastered this complexity elevates the smoothness game in not only flow but muscle gymnastics from forming all the sounds correctly. Ladies, you can thank Amani for our workouts. That’s not even getting into how inherently smooth, and awesome, the Lions have their own tre chic Armani.

Fun fact: Amani is Swahili for “peace”.

VOTE NOW AND END THIS THING

Who has the better name?
Leo Koloamatangi
