    I know this is slightly after midnight but I got so caught up in the election results that I forgot all about this. Lol

    So we bid a fond farewell to Fallon Carrington and Bobby Ewing. Bobby's elimination could be considered to be a shock result because he was a finalist in the World Cup of Dallas. It just goes to illustrate the unpredictability of a cup tournament and how ever vote counts and how no character is safe.

    1. Constance Carlyle (I assume there won't be a Flamingo Road WC, so this is her only chance)
    2. JR Ewing (because he hasn't done many matches in the Dallas WC)

    OK my vote

    match 3 - Constance carlyle as i met Morgan F and she really impressed me as one very bright girl with her head screwed on the right way and very aware of just about everything (I feel i should vote Jane Wyman tho as my mum liked her!)

    Match 4- JR Ewing, the biggest TV legend out, cant say anymore than that!! The man who summed up and dominated the 1980s!

    pS Sorry Bobby, loved you on original Dallas, less so on TNT! and as for the naff ponytail..............................:omg:

    Match 3 - Angela Channing - I'm a big fan of both Falcon Crest and Flamingo Road and Angela and Constance were the stand out characters of their respective shows so it's a shame they were drawn together this early in the contest. However, Angela Channing was one the of most memorable and outstanding characters of all time on TV. Cruel and endearing in equal measures but always entertaining and compelling to watch.

    Match 4 - J.R. Ewing - Steven was in many ways a breakthrough character as he was one of the first high profile gay characters on prime time TV that I can remember. However, it's hard to rate him higher than J.R who in many ways defined the prime time soaps of the era so J.R. Ewing wins for me.

    Seeing your post just made me realise I've been spelling her name incorrectly throughout this game, of course it "Carlyle". :embarrassed:

    I'd love to do a Flamingo Road World Cup if there would be sufficient interest in such a game.

    1: Constance Carlyle - while I do love Angela Channing, part of the fun of a World Cup is seeing how far the underdog can go, so that's why Flamingo Road is getting my vote in this one. The show was a smorgasbord of colourful characters (with equally colorful names) and Constance was it's star.

    2: J.R Ewing - Steven Carrington did provide plenty of drama on Dynasty but he's no match for the memorable one liners and the bastardry of J.R

    Simply to be different and to vote for the underdog as clearly JR and Angela are going to ace this round...

    1. Constance (though Angela was a very strong character indeed)
    2. Steven cause he was one of the first gays on tv and an interesting character (and nice too) to begin with. JR of course is Legend but because JR is going to win this round by a landslide I vote for Steven :)

    Not at all, the voting is unpredictable. Who would have thought JR would go out in the first round of the World Cup of Dallas? No one is safe.
