    Okay, here we go. What I did was I used a list of the teams and how they’re ranked/expected to go, then I drew the first team for everybody completely at random, then that meant they also got another corresponding team depending on their strength. So everybody’s either got a strong team and a weak team or they’ve got two medium strength teams, nobody can get two strong teams or two weak teams. There’s no way I can make it so that everyone has an equal chance though. If I’m being brutally honest, there are probably only 8-10 teams that could win, but you never know. Upsets do happen. And even if you don’t get one of the top chances, it doesn’t stop you following your teams just to see how far they can go.
