The Generation Game

Recommended Posts





Can you not just disqualify him for being stupid?

just let it be man. No big deal I'm only off by a couple of years.
Then you'll never win the game :lol:
generations aren't unverisally agreed on anyway. Some people would classify downie,brackneil and Christie as baby boomers anyway.



That's why the OP specifically sets out which definition of generations is being used and where it's sourced on. Argue Bracknell a baby boomer all you want, the rules of the competition aren't going to change because you think they're wrong.

By all means keep your ineligible picks but you will never win and any hits you have put in the wrong generation won`t count .

MTM was my 10th hit, and four of them are Baby Boomers. Not bad, though Craig Spector will probably block my team for a long time.
