Right, i'm running this one, so the rules will be made up when i can be bothered. Like a true leader, i'll do it my way and **** the rest of you.
Battle of the dictators has been done, but what about those 'Good leaders?' (oxymoron). This competition will sort the men from the boys, crossing time, continents, types of government, even religion.
The qualification process will begin now, with 4 of the top ranked contenders recieving an automatic place in the draw to be held just after I sober up in new year. Expect between now and new year a selection of profiles of some of the top contenders to be posted up (half based on fact, half based on malicious rumours in regard to their football skill I may or may not make up).
Any leader, be it President, Prime Minister, Dictator, Monarch, Military Commander, Pope, Medieval Tyrant are allowed (Premiership Managers are currently negotiating the TV rights for their breakaway league that could start as soon as March).
Unfortunately, at the moment Adolf Hitler is suspended following missed drugs test, his appeal is in to the IOC but not eligible for now.
Already Qualified (hey, I'm a leader, i'm choosing those I feel deserve a spot, my comp!)
Henry VII (England - King)
Duke of Wellington (England - Military/PM)
George Washington (U.S.A. - President)
Mohandas Gandhi (India - Spiritual Leader/Political legend)
Nominations to begin, to be rounded up by Christmas, Limit of 5 Nominations and 5 seconds (obv dont need to second the above), will decide numbers and such when i see the uptake, not adverse to having a massive frist round (thinking, if needs be, 5 in a battle, get 2 votes each round, top 3 go through)
This battle will change your lives
