The New Tribune A Tha Talent Production Table of Contents --INTRO-- --SOAPBOX-- --A GRAND FINALE-- --TALENT'S TOP TEN-- --ONE'S TO WATCH-- --OUTRO-- Intro fun week in store, and tournament around the corner...you'll want to read on. Soapbox So the tournament is on a lot of minds, i'm sure...it's big news...the last one was won by Omen, and the previous tournament was a Tournament of Champions, won by Richard Corey...those two legends have earned their way into the 2004 Champ of Champs 3-Way battle for best tournament competitor of 2004...the question now looms, who will be the third wheel...or will one of those fuckers win another tournament, making it a two way...anyway, the league will shut down for the first two rounds of the tournament, sorry folks...so sign up and make sure you win at LEAST round one...let's make it a classic. Grand Finale Vern Acular Leaves Us by Tekneek For those that do not know who the true identity of DOYEN is? let me break it down for you. He is probably on paper the best ever in the RSTL? he's locked it once more ? despite that a NS title win from ATHEIST this week was lackluster as it gets in the final outcome? but no matter how its done, the end remains official? DOYEN aka VERN-ACULAR exposes his true colors and at the last moment before his leave of the RSTL, he wins. Mr. VERNACULAR? Mr. RSTL 7x? Mr. Champion-1-Last-Time. --- It's difficult to hate this guy. He's done the moderating? he's done the competing? and he's done the slaying? taking out opponent each week? you gotta love him. If anyone inspires with accomplishments? its VERN. But the guy didn't have to disguise his name or make an alias? what point is to prove with that? ? He does nothing but wins almost on every occasion. And the voters in the RSTL are pretty much honest and very legit with what they comment on without the use of riding VERN. I just gotta say that as his farewell to bootcamp *I believe* I personally just want to say congratulations to the man and may all the things he do in his future stay light before him. With his leave, and with the coming 64 man tournament that's been rumored, we can definitely feel relieved that VERN's presence would be absent... subtracting one deadly writer in the competition? just hope that he doesn't have change of plans in which he WILL participate, otherwise whoever faces him during the run would be most likely assed out in the competition. In conclusion, VERN is now Mr. RSTL? but with the Richard Corey's? the Trap's? the Talent's? etc, just how long will his seat in the throne remain hold? --- There are 8-11 good writers now this week in the league who are on the verge of total greatness? so to see VERN remain in the RSTL would be a mountainous climb to complete dominance? but with his leave? maybe someone can take over and lay VERN in the shadows.. but that time is too distant. --- VERN shines now and shows us again why he is the champion of the RSTL.
