    I struggle really bad with these long lists. I just don't have that many favorites. More than half of my picks are fillers. I can't do it.

    Yeah “favorites” was kind of a stretch for a bunch of mine, but since I like them more than other boxers, I guess it’s still an accurate description.

    QUICK UPDATE! I'm actually going to compile the "sister Survey" in the General, first. It's deadline is a few days earlier, and this one has a far grander scope.

    Please everyone who has already participated, or is about to do so before the deadline - if your list isn't already logged from the previous post (which is just 11 of the first 12 names), PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK YOUR LIST! Make sure there are 35 names, and do your best to ensure there are no duplicate names. Thanks!

    @TheMikeLake - I forget, where do you stand on having yours finalized?

    I have 35 and rechecked for duplicates. No changes since you caught the duplication earlier so if you’ve logged me it should be good as is.
