Unless you and Pep's manager want to call it even?

I think a draw is perfectly fine. Nobody deserves to win this season

On behalf of SimGilga.org, (over which the courts have given me power of attorney, for much the same reason as Brittany Spears has a court ordered guardian) do hereby accept the outcome.

Don't we have a point ranking to determine a winner?

I do believe that Alexis may have bragging rights.....it would seem he accumulated the most points, and the tie breaker in this case would likely trend his way.

Sounds about right. Arguello was proclaimed The Best There Is for a reason. :box:

However the "asterisk's" of the season are many. Including his bit of an advantage from fighting from a slightly upper weight class.

The software/computer combo was a nightmare.

All problems appear to be resolved for any future seasons.

Only if we can make covid null/void. Currently it's all the odd shyt going on that is defining these times. So this season was perfect for it's time., A viral condition....running loose, and creating chaos. That's the sum of it.

This right here. Once the data from the season got lost, it was a wash. There really can't be a true winner decided honestly overall. Even the tournament winner is skewed because you throw away 20 weeks of work.

Bullsh*t. There'll be a rematch. There's no Ties in the Million Dollar Tournament.

The only 2 and Half Time Million Dollar Champion doesn't have as nice a ring to it as the one and only 3 Time Million Dollar Champion.

The season is over....however if/when we begin another season, we can have an exhibition in the first week. By then of course they both would be out of their prime, and it would be simply an exploitation bout.....much like Tyson and Jones.

I'll pass on the next season, we never see 'em through to the end anyway. I'm the 3 Time Million Dollar Champion. Can't get my rematch. So I'll just carry on without the Sim which will crash halfway through. You guys have fun.
