    We played this game in the Falcon Crest Forum and it's now coming to Dallas.

    How It Will Work
    The World Cup of Dallas is a popularity contest between different Dallas characters in a knockout competition with the same format as the knockout stage of the FIFA World Cup.

    I will take 16 Dallas characters and randomly pair them to compete against each other in a match. Forum members can then vote on who they want to win each contest and the one with the most votes will go through to the next round and loser will be eliminated.

    After round 1, the 8 winning characters will go through to the quarter finals where they will again compete against each other to qualify for the semi-finals and then the final where the remaining 2 characters will compete to be the winner.

    How You Can Take Part
    Each week there will be 1 or 2 fixtures and if you want to take part, post the names of the characters you want to win each match. You can provide reasons for your vote (which may influence how others vote) but there is absolutely no obligation to do so. In the event of a tie, the choice of the person who posts first (excluding my vote) will be the winner of the match.

    Details of the first match will be posted later this week.

    If you have any questions, please post them on this thread.

    The following 14 Dallas characters have already been selected to automatically qualify for the main game based on the number of episodes in which they appeared or their significance in the series:
    [​IMG]
    Jock Ewing, Ellie Ewing Farlow, JR Ewing II, Sue Ellen Ewing, Cliff Barnes, Pamela Barnes Ewing, Bobby Ewing, Ray Krebbs, Donna Krebbs, Lucy Ewing, Clayton Farlow, Jenna Wade, Katherine Wentworth and Afton Cooper.

    The remaining 2 places for the main draw of 16 will be determined by a play off between the remaining characters and decided by your votes. The main contenders are the following 9 characters:

    [​IMG]
    April Stevens
    Jeremy Wendell
    Dusty Farlow
    Kristin Shepherd
    Wes Parmalee
    Jamie Ewing
    Digger Barnes
    Micky Trotter
    Mandy Winger

    You are requested to vote for the TWO characters you would like to join the 14 who have already qualified to be part of the competition. You may chose from the list above or select another character or characters.

    The reason for your choice is up to you but it could be a favourite character of yours, a participant in a favourite storyline, the impact they had on the series overall or just someone you think deserves to be in the final 16. It's entirely optional whether or not you post the reasons for your decision along with your choices.

    Remember you are voting for the character and not the actor.

    The poll closes at midnight on Monday 15th January.

    My votes for the qualifying round.

    1. Digger Barnes - The Barnes-Ewing feud was central to Dallas which makes Digger one of the most significant characters of the series.
    2. Wes Parmalee - was he really Jock? Wes Parmalee's storyline was one of my all time favourites.

    my 2 characters

    Digger Barnes - as said above, central to the show and its back history past and present - the link with Jock and Miss Ellie, the father of Pam and Cliff and her marriage to Bobby and Cliffs hatred of all things Ewing

    Dusty - one of my favorite supporting cast members and lovely chemistry with Sue Ellen, i loved him from S2 onwards and was always glad to see him dip in and out of storylines

    (Wes would have been my 3rd choice)

    1. April (because she was in 125 episodes which is more than both Afton, Katherine and Jock)

    2. Kristin (because she shot JR!)

    I’m trying very, very hard to not say ‘Well that’s 125 episodes too many’

    Oops I failed

    Sorry, couldn’t resist. Cheeky ;-)

    Digger Barnes, cos he was the one who found the oil that the Ewings have been suckin' outta the ground for all these years!

    Mandy Winger, the goddess of lingerie!

    The Ewings wouldn't smell oil if someone rubbed it in their faces.

    Digger and Papi Ramos were the real oil men (and Blake Carrington too, of course).

    1. Digger. The character has too much history with the Ewing family not to be included.
    2. Kristin. Gee whiz I wish the writers had kept her character around. Such a great find in Mary Crosby.
