Ok, after a steward's enquiry we have a tie-break between Alba Thistle and Highland Terriers.

You are invited to vote for your choice as to which team should be the Striker World League's first Scottish club.

We didn't make the rules clear last time, so let's fix that. It's one vote per member and only one vote per IP address.

Votes will ONLY count from people who registered as members by August 4. Voting closes on Tuesday, August 7, at 6pm..

Happy voting and may the best team win...

I voted Alba Thistle. I think is the Alba Gaelic for Scotland? Seems cool. https://files.jcink.net/uploads/strikerworld/e5251633.gif

This whole saga is ridiculous and needs to be sorted otherwise the comic won’t get past the first 12 weeks. I believe it’s that serious.

Well spotted. Dazzy. It took me around 26 sconds to fix so you were quick off the mark.

Seems a bit harsh this. As at 6pm alba thistle had 26 votes to highland terriers 31. (I came online to check) Even with the 3 possible votes from 1 ip (surely in that case even 1 vote should count and just 2 be taken off) highland terriers won by 2/3 Unless the suggestion is that same ip voted many more times now.

I think some clarity would help on this as it looks like the name has a winner and it’s been reversed for no clear reason. I have voted for highland terriers this time, I didn’t last time but it kind of feels like they are being robbed of the win currently without any clarity.

I should add, making additional rules at the end to change the result doesn’t seem too fair. It’s better that’s it’s clearer this time but I think much more clarity should be provided.

I voted for Angus terriers first time. I think Alba describes Scotland a whole lot better than Highland does but I think terriers strikes more fear than thistle does so on this occasion ive gone for Highland terriers.



Just a thought on the two team names. How about a compromise on the two and make the team name. Alba Terriers.

I can understand why it may seem harsh but there is absolutely nothing to read into it and no reflection on either Alba Thistle or Highland Terriers. This is the first poll of its kind and procedural lessons can be learnt from it..

Neither I or anyone running Strikerworld has a vested interest in who wins.

That would be down to Terry and Swarfie to agree on.

Sort of the same reason I went for it. But as I was the first to suggest The Highlanders I’m claiming it as my own. Haha.
