Hey Tailgaters. There's a thread in the Stadium right now urging ESers to vote for Orakpo for the cover of Madden NFL 12 on ESPN.com. I wanted to create this thread to not only draw attention to that, but to also start up an ExtremeSkins bracket group on Facebook. The brackets correspond with the ESPN voting.
Check it out, submit your bracket, then join the public group "ExtremeSkins" or the private group "ExtremeSkins Members" (which is private, the password is st8307), both created by myself (SonOfWashington). If we get 20 entrants, the top member earns a free copy of Madden NFL 12.
The deadline to submit a bracket is Monday, March 27, at 4 p.m. EST. It can be edited up to this point. You have to be 18 or older, and can join up to three groups.

Points will be awarded to Entrant based on the amount of correct NFL players predicted to advance through the seeded bracket in for (4) rounds of elimination based on the ESPN site results after the Contest Period.
