I have a feeling this will come down to HBO vs AMC. I think HBO should win, but I'm guessing AMC is going to win since its Free Tv.

I think the Cable A vs Cable B match up is going to be the toughest side of the bracket.

Not to blast the guy who is doing this (because I have done one of these years back and it's a lot of hard work), but yeah I think a more realistic seeding of these competitors would have been each broadcast network as the 4 seed in a region. The broadcast network bracket is going to be obliterated by HBO. In fact, I hazard that HBO and AMC are no brainer winners of theirs. I have no idea what broadcast network will win, and Netflix versus FX is going to be tight in my mind as well.

Now man I hope you don't get too dejected. I think it got put on the second page over the weekend and just wasn't bumped. If you are really out and people want to finish it out, I'll do the heavy lifting.
