    1) Ray Krebbs
    2) Clayton Farlow


    Jamie and Cliff’s claim on Ewing Oil might soon be scuppered, after a meeting with Mr. Windham. Night descends on Southfork and Ellie (played by Donna Reed) is on the telephone, (a scene from season 7, DVD-8, 1984-‘85):

    Ellie: “Yes….yes. Oh that’s wonderful news I’ll be sure to tell them. Good bye JR!”

    Clayton goes into the living room. Sue Ellen is standing at the drinks cabinet.

    Clayton: “How you feeling Sue Ellen?”

    Sue Ellen: “I’m just fine, thank you!”

    Ellie: “That was JR on the phone. He has some wonderful news. Evidently Jock left some documents with his 1st wife.”

    Sue Ellen: “Amanda…really!”

    Ellie: “Yes and if she still has them JR thinks he will be able to save Ewing Oil.”

    Clayton: “Jock was married before?”

    Ellie: “Yes but she’s in a mental institution. She’s completely out of touch with reality.”

    Clayton: “In what way?”

    Ellie: “Well, it’s as if time just suddenly stopped for her.”

    Clayton: “In other words she thinks she’s living in the past.”

    Sue Ellen takes a sip from her drink and says, “She is living in the past.”

    Ellie: “Poor woman. The last time the family went to visit her she mistook Bobby for Jock.”

    Clayton: “She did?”

    Ellie: “Yes it was very sad. Bobby was so sweet. Ye know he played along with her and made her feel comfortable.”

    Clayton: “That most have been very difficult for him.”

    Ellie: “Yes it was.”

    Ellie then looks sadly at Clayton and Sue Ellen.

    Ellie: “It’s a pity we can’t do more for her.”

    Ray and Clayton are my choices.

    Ray is one of the 4 Ewing boys, and one of the only 3 that appear regularly. He's the foreman of Southfork, he's Bobby's best friend as well as his older brother, and Ray is an interesting character because he grew up in very difficult circumstances: Imagine growing up in a small town where everybody knows that your father is the town drunk , Amos Kreebs - a total loser! He goes from having a father like that to having such a great, heroic man as Jock Ewing be his father and it changes his life - for the better! Ray was incredible during the Mickey Trotter storyline - possibly Ray's finest performance.

    Clayton is amazing because he, in a way, sort of replaced a man who was practically looked up to as a God by Miss Ellie, J.R., Bobby, and Ray! It would have been a massive mistake to recast the character of Jock Ewing with anyone. What Clayton did do is become the new husband of Miss Ellie and he did a better job at it than anyone could have expected.. I also like Clayton because he has a quiet kind of strength and that was illustrated in the storyline where JR tried to make him throw Sue Ellen off The Southern Cross but Clayton refused even though he had to lay off hundreds of workers. Ultimately he saved his refinery by making a good business deal with Ellie. Clayton managed to get out of dire situations without ever lowering his principles.

    Even though I voted for Donna I'm very fond of Clayton, so I'm glad to see such a close run race between them. I like to think the Texas gentleman is quite happy to concede this one.

    Match 3 - J.R Ewing.
    It's a real shame these 2 were drawn against each other so early on in the competition as they were both potential finalists and it's difficult to chose between them. I found JR to be the more compelling character until he became shuffling loser in the last few season who would let someone like Cally get the better of him. Sue Ellen at her lowest was more interesting than JR at his lowest but at their peaks JR was the stronger character for me and gets my vote.

    Match 4 - Bobby Ewing
    As much as I liked Afton, Bobby wins this match even though his return in the shower damaged the credibility of the show and in the final seasons his role in the Sheila Foley and Jory Taylor rubbish was beyond boring but he still beats Afton and her push up bras.

    I put the names of the 16 finalists in this website which randomly generate fixtures for knock-out cup competitions. Obviously, I've seen the entire draw and I can tell you that J.R vs Sue Ellen isn't the only clash of the Titans we will see in round 1.
