We are down to the Elite 8 fighters in the SUPER BRAWL tournament. Each bracket is now holding its Finals. Many thanx again to everyone who has played their matches, win or lose. The success of this tournament is directly attributed to every member in this league. With 7 matches remaining in the tournament, we are looking at the best fighters in the league. As of this posting, there are only 7 fighters remaining as one fighter has reached the Final Four in the 6th Round.
For the second time in this tournament, all the matches were played & completed in the 4th Round. That is something I am very thankful for as I really do not want to ‘decide’ any more matches this season, especially this late into the tournament. Congratulations to all the winners for advancing to the 5th Round – The Elite 8 of the SFCCL. And for all the fighters who saw their season come to an end in Round 4, I think can I speak for everyone in the SFCCL community when I say "Thank You" for being part of the SFCCL & this great tournament. Now join the rest of us sitting back & watching SUPER BRAWL results come in! Hopefully the majority of these final 7 matches are recorded for everyone to watch.
As a reminder, no fighter may advance twice in the tournament via forfeit. However, I believe all matches going forward will be played out.

MATCH OF THE WEEK
As in last week, I’m going to refrain from spotlighting any one particular match as all remaining matches in the SUPER BRAWL tournament would be worthy of a Match of the Week spotlight.
Here is a listing of the Finals of each Bracket:
RED BRACKET: #17 seed ElGeneral GUILE (28-5) vs. #104 seed Haduken3 RUFUS (4-0)
GREEN BRACKET: #68 seed Skrface13 GUILE (7-3) vs. #5 seed Deltron2020 RYU (12-4)
BLUE BRACKET: #63 seed Nd2130 SAGAT (8-1) vs. #90 seed SFGodfather SAGAT (10-4)
BLACK BRACKET: #78 seed Zti890 CAMMY (5-0) vs. #54 seed Skrface13 BLANKA (10-1)
The winners of these matches will face each other in the Final Four 6th Round. The winner of the Red and Green brackets will fight, and the winners of the Blue and Black brackets will fight. Had the highest seed in each bracket made it this far, the Red Bracket #1 seed would play the Green Bracket #4 seed, while the Blue Bracket #2 seed would play the Black Bracket #3 seed. None of the top seeds made it this far.

Finally, I've added a few things to the website. The home page now has a picture of the full SUPER BRAWL bracket and is linked directly to the SUPER BRAWL page itself for more info. I've also brought back the SFCCL Chat Box, but instead of having its own webpage, I've added it to the Community page (the former Forums page) above. Check it out and let me know how user-friendly the site is. I'm always open to making the league and site better.
Good luck to everyone in the 5thh round and get ready for the FINAL FOUR of the SFCCL SUPER BRAWL tournament.
