    @scartissue @Jel

    I know we've discussed this before about bringing this back, i forget the poster you told me that used to do this. But would the rest of the Classic Forum like to do this ? We all score a controversial fight each week, and then compare eachothers scorecards ?

    Hi, the problem I have with this kind of organised activity is I spend so much time doing boxing stuff that being organised by other folks just isn't really an option for me. I already do so much reading, writing, watching, modding and discussion on boxing and it means it is almost impossible to commit to doing something every week with the group and following through on it. Which is a shame, because it would be fun.

    I do have 70 billion scorecards in the scorecard thread though so I 100% would be involved if you don't mind re-posting old cards, but you should maybe think about disallowing that, because you can just end up with a bunch of copy and paste and no input.

    If I get the time I'd be happy to join in occasionally depending upon what you boys are running. I'd like to suggest you include the following resource though, Eye on the Ring. You could post the average card every week as a part of the discussion.

    Hello mate I certainly don't want to overload you if your too busy with other projects on the forum. It was just an idea really but if it's not really feasible for you that's totally fine.

    Yeah, it was Fight of the Fortnight. @PhillyPhan69 used to set these up, then @George Crowcroft picked up the mantle for a while. I’m definitely under the kosh life-wise at the moment (hence my lack of posting scorecards recently) so not sure I’ll get to it each week but happy to contribute when I can.

    I haven't watched a boxing match that wasn't live in almost a year. It certainly won't be me picking it back up.

    Probably best just to leave it then as it doesn't really seem feasible atm. I hope you feel better soon mate BTW.

    Actually, if you want, i'll stick in. If you want to postpone it a bit, cool, but we could probably make a stab at it the four of us. If @Austinboxing and @BoB Box were still game.

    Count me in. If all else fails then I'll just rescore the chosen fight twice and debate myself.

    Defo need all the help we can get :lol:

    What's your set up going to be @Dynamicpuncher? You going to pick the fight each week, rotate it? And when does the watch start and when you going to announce all that sort of ****? Or just catch as catch can?
