Let's Settle this II

So I posted a similar poll in the FG/SS forum (Lets Settle This), and it shut everybody up about pirates and ninjas and stuff for at least a week.

There is too much bickering in this forum, especially among the regulars. Sydney is condescending, people get offended, people trash-talk lbs's and then the 'Industry Related' guys all sulk.

So, in the spirit of solving problems (and procrastination--I should be writing a paper now), I propose a simple question: who would win in a big fight? Would Sydney stilletto everybody while they weren't looking (with his dagger-like wit)? Would expatriate run over all comers with his tandem MTB? Would Rev Chuck smash his truing stand into everyone's face? Would Seeley lascerate everyone with broken bottles (or whatever?) Would Rayin write in garishly blue text about his love for hockey until everyone just died? What about the mysterious HillRider? What's he got up his sleeve?

My apologies to all whom I've forgotten, and my apologies to Sheldon Brown, who I'd include but for the fact that he'd obviously win (that eagle is dangerous. ) In the spirit of fairness, I'll include myself, but I don't expect to win.

Enjoy!

I vote for Raiyn. He never never never stops. He will tire u out.

now sydney, he stabs once, rolls eyes then hides.

Expatriate? Too sporadic. Does not have the time to read each post in detail in their entirety. (And a good thing that is too.)

Seely? can't take LBS rants on the chin.

Generic - not aggressive. Hopeless.

etc.

Hey, why am I under Sydney? Shouldn't the bottom feeder... Never mind. Raiyn will win. He's bigger than me, and he never tires. At least in his role as the grammar cop.

[edit] The only time I don't read a post in its entirety is those A&S posts about VC. They're all the same.

No, it's about who would win a fight. Of course, since it's by popular vote, it's the exact opposite of the "Who has the biggest internet penis" contest.

Ahh. Well it's true, I'm probably bigger than most of the combatants. Do I get to use a hockey stick? I've got a nice wooden Christian that I've been itching to get a 5 minute major with

SS/FG has some dark energy lurking within. Beware.

My vote was sydney, but then I saw Raiyn pop up, and I started thinking generic's point about his relentlessness was right. The fact that he loves hockey in Florida probably says it all. Now, if there were a sumo wrestler trolling about...

oh, Hell, I'm throwing my vote at Rev. Chuck; he's got a bevy of hardware.

I voted for Rev. Chuck, because he's just always seemed kind of old-school tough, like he'd just hurt you bad. Raiyn would probably remind the judges of some archaic technicality and win by a loophole in the rules, though.

It's always about mentality over size, trust me....
Ever been to the zoo and seen the little monkeys that
are crazier than Hell? They'll take on any of you people,
and whoop some *ss....
I've personally seen some very skinny, deranged guys
that took 3 to 4 big guys to subdue them.
It's all upstairs Folks!

I dunno, I picked The Right Reverend. I think he comes across as just mild-mannered enough to maybe do some devious ****. Of course, if temporary alliances sprung up between contenders, I think anyone would have a chance....
