    Now, now. We all know who I was meaning, that fat, goofy teeth, pretty decent striker.

    Re: The Mighty Ducks, Anaheim Ducks as they are now known in the NHL were formed as the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim having been founded by the Disney company after the movie came out. Disney sold them in 2005 and their name changed.

    Just when I was going to point out they'd never won the thing, I saw the bracket and was disappointed

    Not been in this forum for quite a while now, but will hopefully get more than my usual 3-5 right this time. It's a little hard to believe people clean up every question every round without assistance. Maybe I'm not enough of a football and "everything else" nerd.

    Neither have

    It is quite hard to believe at times but some people are genuinely just good at quizzes. I'm not one of those people though

    However, Disney also wanted them to change the 'Ducks' name as they claimed they had a trademark, also wanted the arena's name changed which was the Arrowhead Pond. They got their way on the arena (now the Honda Center), but not on the name.

    Default The Good and the not so good answers

    Baa Baa Black Sheep (AK22) – Best answer for the song by far, even beats deltablue's (below).

    'Yet another chart-bait love song, that's the same as thousands we've heard before this year alone, and is probably a cover of something a proper band once did' by 'yet another manufactured 2d boyband that only exist because Simon Cowell's a greedy git and anyone who still watches his rubbish need to take a long hard look at themselves, and whose members are bound to end up on Big Brother because they'll have such a taste of fame that they'll really be that desperate for a little bit more, and that's what's really wrong with society today, that we glamourize and give these talentless tits publicity. Never mind the strikers, it's these people that should be taken outside and shot in front of their families, by properly talented musicians like Phil Collins and singers like Adele' (deltablue) – Is the wrong answer.

    Flamers (deltablue) – I’m sure he’d be honoured to have the cat named after him.

    Nick Clegg (Nobby and Deisler26) – David Camerons cat again, brilliant.

    Default Round 11 - Erm

    This is where the next set of questions would be, but we've reached the 10th Round and it's all over

    Tune in next week for the kind of Awards Ceremony bit (the **** version of Deislers brilliant Oscars thingy ) I couldn't think how else to describe it!

    Smashing job running this, by the way HC I shall definitely miss the weekly round of questioning in the off-season

    Perhaps we could be loaned out to another quiz that runs during the FMCU Quiz off-season, in order to stay mentally fit for selection for our respective international quiz teams?

    Nick Clegg That is ace!

    deltablue should get a bonus point for the most awesome answer this entire competition though, with the long rant on **** music and PR horny tits.

    At least it sounds like Adele can sing, which is more than I can say about just about any other pop artist. The music isn't half-bad either. Certainly beats the living s*it out of empty shells like... well, take your pick really, it's all crap. I shudder at the thought of A1, Boyzone and all the other Masterw*nkers that spewed their filthy faces and computer-assisted voices with tacked on and equally cringeworthy dance moves up through my teen years.

    With that rant aside, I'm happy with 8 points. I'll pretend it was a 10-question round

    I should get 57 bonus points for the Nick Clegg answer. Deisler should get none as he is already in the top three.

    I was thinking of Nick Clegg, but like the mighty ducks last week, it seemed too predictable. As for the music thing, Phil Collins certainly isn't famous for his looks, and I stand by my fondness for Adele.

    Cheers SnakeXe

    I'm gutted that I've been off the boards recently, only been able to have my say in the League 1 thread and this thread every now and then, but that's life. It was odd not having to think up any questions for this last week...

    It's a while away, no summer tournaments

    I'm open to any ideas for next years if I manage to log on here enough times to keep my sanity and I am up for other people writing the quizzes as well!

    Ditto, have been thinking about questions for a round, but didn't want to steal your thunder. Maybe we should have close season exhibition 'rounds'.

    And thanks Pangaea. Once the idea came into my head, it was initially going to be much shorter, but making the same point, then I thought it would be amusing to make it overly long and decided to roll with it for a while. Good to see that effort recognized

    But I am ashamed of myself

    As for the ideas, the close season exhibition rounds sounds good because if we waited till the next Quiz and had 10 rounds again then not everyone would get to be the Quiz Master.

    Over the summer, we could do mini quizzes. Everyone picks a category and produces 10 questions. Just for fun over the post-season

    I've already thought of a round, mostly. On the same 'alternating football and general' format as this one, plus a 'bonus' question on a career thread.

    Sounds like a great idea. A different person set a batch of questions every week.

    You can go first for coming up with it. I'll have the second week.

    Steady on, we haven't even had the awards yet and we'd just be prolonging the 'quiz' season for ages if we did it too soon.

    Top 10 Answers of the Quiz, The Awards (not wanting to copy Deisler) just the winner and the loser, the stats of each round, which questions I genuinely knew, The Derp Award

    Any ideas would be welcome!
    Here they are SnakXe, just post a comment. I'll be doing most of the deciding but input is always welcome!

    Well as you know, the Derp Award was inspired by the sheer smashing-own-head-with-hammer derpery of Flamers, so I'll vote for him for that.

    I think Nobby's "Suk Mi Dik" way back from the first round has to get into the top 10 answers too.

    Sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry.

    I was so busy yesterday, I've got to make a website and as you can probably understand it's not easy. But I just completely forgot about it until late at night. I'll definitely do it today/now though!

    Default The Statistics

    Now I could be wrong about these statistics but I'm pretty sure they are a close guess. (I know some of the figures are different to last time, I blame myself )

    Round 1 - 63% of the questions answered were correct.

    Round 2 - 59% of the questions answered were correct.

    Round 3 - 60% of the questions answered were correct.

    Round 4 - 56% of the questions answered were correct.

    Round 5 - 47% of the questions answered were correct.

    Round 6 - 48% of the questions answered were correct.

    Round 7 - 69% of the questions answered were correct.

    Round 8 - 57% of the questions answered were correct.

    Round 9 - 61% of the questions answered were correct.

    Round 10 - 56% of the questions answered were correct.

    Default The Top 10 Answers of the Quiz!

    Starting us off at number 10 is Kris0710 with his answer to: Name all 8 planets in our Solar System. He managed to name 8 planets but idiotically put Pluto as a planet and missed Earth!?

    At number 9 is deltablue with what seems to be quite a rant at today's music society or just society in general, this was his answer to: Which song has these opening lyrics: I call you when I need you, my hearts on fire? 'Yet another chart-bait love song, that's the same as thousands we've heard before this year alone, and is probably a cover of something a proper band once did' by 'yet another manufactured 2d boyband that only exist because Simon Cowell's a greedy git and anyone who still watches his rubbish need to take a long hard look at themselves, and whose members are bound to end up on Big Brother because they'll have such a taste of fame that they'll really be that desperate for a little bit more, and that's what's really wrong with society today, that we glamourize and give these talentless tits publicity. Never mind the strikers, it's these people that should be taken outside and shot in front of their families, by properly talented musicians like Phil Collins and singers like Adele' P.S. you didn't spell glamorize correctly.

    So ten minutes later and we are number 8, Nobby_McDonald is here with his 'Suk Mi Dik' answer to: Who is the new Supreme Leader of North Korea?

    Number 7 will have to go to Nobby_McDonald and Deisler26 with one of the simplest answers I've seen: What is the name of David Camerons cat? Nick Clegg. Simple, but brilliant as well.

    Now there were some good answers to this question: Name 10 of the current (2014) Winter Olympic Sports but hursty2's answers stood out the most: Naked Snow Run

    Halfway there and for those of you that can't do Math this is number 5, What nationality is Justin Bieber? The little **** was born in Canada...poor Rancer and Cerud having to share the same nationality! It's nice to see we have a forumer that considers and cares about other people. Maybe Flamers should take some lessons off B.W.G?

    Speaking of the devil, Flamers of course. He comes in at number 4 with Torvill and Dean as the answer to: Who are the current NHL champions?

    The top 3 are the stand out answers and I found it incredibly hard to decide which one went where. It's just my opinion and you might not agree but coming very close to winning it and still finishing 3rd is Pangaea with Played this once utter yonks ago so should get a few at least. Mafia, villager, police, witness. Unless I have mixed this up with another stupid game we played while downing beers that one time. This was an answer to: Name 4 of the original Cluedeo board game charachters/suspects.

    And so we have at number 2, by far the best thought out answer of them all. The one that I sat back and applauded after working out why it was so brilliant: deltablue and his answer to: Which two teams appeared in last years English FA Youth Cup Final? Was: Boca Juniors and Young Boys.

    The winner though and it was genuinely close between the top 3 goes to...















    AK22 and his answer: Baa Baa Black Sheep. The question I hear you ask? Which song has these opening lyrics: I call you when I need you, my hearts on fire?

    And now the end is near, and so I face the final curtain. My friend, I'll say it clear, I'll state my case, of which I'm certain. I've a lived a life that's full, I've traveled each and every highway and more, much more than this, I did it myyyy waaay.

    Is it just me that's tearing up at this moment?

    But yes here is the end of the FMCU Forum Quiz, it's been absolutely ****ing amazing. Obviously it wouldn't have been as good without you lot and your amazing answers but we've had a good 10 weeks plus of pure brilliance at times. So yeah, a massive thank you to everyone that has participated in this quiz!

    *slowly flashbacks of me writing the questions and you lot answering them, then me laughing at seeing the answers, passing them on to you and you laughing even more*

    Okay, now I'm going to leave it here. Before I break the keyboard with my tears.

    You lot are all legend-wait for it-dairy!

    Had a look back over the entire thread a few days ago because I wanted to reminisce. Delighted to have two top 10 entries (and to be pacesetter even though things fell off), and the rest were pretty darn excellent. Nice try on 'glamourize' but as 'Clueduo' and 'Charachters' are wrong, perhaps you shouldn't have thrown that stone B.W.G's was my personal favourite.

    Thank you for the accolade! I'm not sure it's the best, but I'll still take it

    Personally, I like Nobby's 'Suk Mi Dik' answer

    I'm easy, whenever you lot feel you want to do another Quiz. I think the general agreement is that everyone else gets a go at doing the questions as well.

    Are you guys wanting me to be the starter of all this and then let you take over or?

    I may have missed it if you've already started one. I have been in-active to say the least. You know how it is though.

    I pretty much have a round ready to go, as a just for fun thing as I don't want to steal the competitive thunder of the main event, or to do it too soon after. Might get the ball rolling if people are keen on doing that sort of thing, people doing their own rounds for people to have a bit of fun doing.

    Well I can set up the thread, the way I would do it is the winner of each week gets a point so the person who wins the most weeks is the winner. It's the easiest and simplest way in my eyes. I'll participate in the Quiz as and when I can which would hopefully be every week.

    Should we keep the format of 5 football questions and 5 general knowledge, or just do 10 of whatever?

    I've already kept it to a 5:5 split for my round, maybe a career bonus question at the end on our own as well.

    I think 10 what ever would be good, then you have the choice of doing more football questions but I think there should be a bare minimum of three questions away from football.

    I've thought of two alternative scoring systems.

    1. Score as last time, only instead of a points total, use an average points system instead. This will then also not 'punish' people who can't take part every week.
    2. Score the same as last time with the quiz master scoring an average of everybody else's score the week they set the questions.

    I'm up for being a quizmaster one week, I'll do the questions when it's my turn.

    The first one might cause problems - if someone gets 100% on the first round they answer, for example, then if they're "away" for every other round then they'll take a share for first place at worst.

    The second one I like, but how about in order to encourage people to make things challenging, the quiz master scores the inverse of the worst performance? So if someone gets 3 points out of 11, then the quiz master scores 8, or if they get 0, the quiz master gets 11.

    For the first system, a minimum number of rounds criteria could be set, say 8 out of 20 or whatever might best fit.

    The inverse scoring for the quizmaster is a good idea.

    Don't see why it needs to be another ongoing competition though, aside from the issue above, it would take away from the event of the annual quiz, I was only ever thinking of 'off-season' friendly rounds (people doing them for fun, a score after, that's it) and nothing that competitive. Plus it depends on a solid succession of people being able to think of rounds, which isn't easy. But if we did try and go around that route I would be in favour of a retrospective average score added on at the end.
