    I would never make a thread like this, I would never be this self indulgent and self centred.

    But then something strange happened.

    PM's in the tens of ones flooded my inbox more than when I hosted the song contest. Poster after poster begging me to rank my top seven posts of all time. Here's just a sample of what I received.

    So now I'm left with a choice. Satiate my malignant narcissism by giving the people what they want or... Not sure what the other option is.

    Let's move on to number 7!

    NUMBER Seven
    EKA Disaster Season 22: Sterge admits tgrs stole the EKA.

    Picture this.

    It's season 22, Steve Smith has just campaignered a century against the Pakistan Cricket Team before my very eyes. I was euphoric.

    On the train ride home, I craft this absolute beauty,

    Tgrs stole the EKA.

    My first foray into investigative journalism uncovered a niche for me that exists to this day. The fact of the matter is that nobody can uncover unethical conduct better than me. I am, in essence, the greatest investigative journalist the Sweet FA has ever seen.

    This is where I broke out, and things only got better from there. Some posters would kill for this to be their best post ever. This was my 7th best post ever.

    Taking down Sterge's EKA farm is one of my greatest accomplishments and this thread sits firmly at number 7.

    NUMBER Six

    #Storm: Justice for RU_. The SFA's best captain.

    I may be a raging, narcissistic, lonely, sociopath, but I am not disloyal.

    The league went after RU_, so I created the most powerful defence of a league captain seen in the history of the league. The fact that I tormented him into quitting and handing me the captaincy weeks after this thread is irrelevant, I was loyal to the bitter end.

    This was also the first and last time I tried video as a medium in the SFA. Too much work for very little gain unfortunately.

    This thread is one of the very few to receive the certified legendary thread tag. This is a testament to my unmoving brilliance in my humble opinion.

    This thread also included this witty exchange, perhaps the last time RU_ would set me up for bulk likes before the coup happened.

    It's good to look back on the old times and remember that almost 2 years later, I am still producing quality threads. Let's move on to number 5!

    Also here's the streamable link

    Number Five
    You all need an Education

    Was bringing my IQ into my Sweet FA persona a good idea?

    Only time, and my 39 degrees, will tell.

    You all need an Education was my ultimate diss track. A rookie had the gall to ask me for a small favour and I shut that ****** down quicker than he could say "Vote for BRAB in the Season 26 Beez Trophy".

    To The Jesus's credit, his clap back was just as high quality, proving that high quality media that targets the individual was still alive and well in the modern Sweet FA.

    For many, this thread would be their magnum opus. For me it's a Friday.

    Also, note the subtle SM diss at the end of this thread. Very High IQ.

    https://www.bigfooty.com/forum/threads/you-all-need-an-education.1194864/

    Number Four
    It's Grand Final Week Everyone: Why that matters

    Who would have thought the devil had a soul?

    This tender, loving piece brought the entire league together during one of the biggest grand final weeks in league history.

    Heartfelt, powerful and from the heart, this media piece will go down as one of the most well written and touching pieces of all time.

    This is probably my favourite piece from a writing standpoint. I had a had a pretty shitty year so far and this was my catharsis. I almost don't want to put this in a joke thread like this as it undermines it's sincerity, but at the same time, I have to keep the integrity of the thread in tact, and that involves showing the league every aspect of my brilliance. I do it at much personal cost to me, but the league wants what the league wants.

    Again, potentially one of the greatest threads of all time. As we head into top 3, things will only skyrocket from here.

    https://www.bigfooty.com/forum/threads/its-grand-final-week-everyone-why-that-matters.1196326/

    Number Three
    BRAB Investigations: Kdavva74 is not EKA eligible

    The culmination of my investigative powers, this is another thread that will go down in history as a had to be there moment.

    Using the power of insecurity, I completely took down a first year player in a thread that amassed the most Sweet FA likes in my posting history. Thought out, in depth and completely accurate, this thread is a worthy entrant into my top 3.

    This took my investigative journalism that I had shown off for the past 4 seasons and multiplied it ten-fold. Pure, unadulterated high IQ investigative journalism allowed my to completely take down the rising star of season 26.

    I showed that first year rookie who was ******* boss! All because he said something I didn't like once! Hell yeah!

    The return of BRAB Investigations was much loved by all. I get regular PM's from people every week begging me for another thread, but the Sweet FA equivalent of Content Cop only comes along when things it's needed. Look out for one in the distant future potentially.

    What a thread in all honesty. Genuine brilliance.

    https://www.bigfooty.com/forum/threads/brab-investigations-kdavva74-is-not-eka-eligible.1203984/

    Number Two
    301 Days in the Making: The death of the Cult of Harolad

    So far we've seen investigative pieces, character assassinations and messages of league unity in my top 7. This thread combined all three.

    I'll break my rule and take a small segment from this thread to emphasise just how powerful this article was.

    Honestly spilt my hot milk reading that shit.

    ******* mic drop. That's deadest better than most of the stuff in print media today and it graced you all on a fantasy footy forum. What a piece of intellectual brilliance from myself.

    This was the culmination of the Hawks vs Bombers arc that had poisoned the league for 2 season's straight and what a finale it was. The league were absolutely united behind my posting, and I think I really showed the league what good posting looked like on that day. Genuinely one of my best threads ever. Let's take some quotes from the crowd to emphasise my point.

    Wow, wise words from the league.

    Also, Nakia called me a virgin a year ago, still true.

    https://www.bigfooty.com/forum/threads/301-days-in-the-making.1183839/


    Number One
    Does Match Thread Posting have a Correlation with Qooty Results?

    Narrative is one of the most difficult things to achieve in the league. Setting up your own punchline even more subtle. The most difficult thing of all though? Subtlety of setup.

    Take a thread, present it as an intellectual breakdown of the very fabric of the league and then reveal the entire thing was simply an elaborate takedown of the two biggest teams in the league at the time.

    Aim high, score high.

    What a finale and what a thread. This is genuinely one of, if the not the best, threads of all time. Brilliance in its subtlety, brilliance in pacing and brilliance in the punch line, this was a thread genuinely loved by all who saw it.

    Don't believe me? Have a look at the reviews

    Genuine brilliance and a fitting number one for myself.

    Also read the last two pages for a stats fight.
    https://www.bigfooty.com/forum/thre...ave-a-correlation-with-qooty-results.1168773/

    Again, I didn't really want to make this thread, but several people demanded that I did. I did this for them, nobody else. I hope you've enjoyed this thread!

    Here's the threads that are still quality, but failed to make the final cut sadly!

    Unlucky to miss out

    This is the first compliment I've received in weeks.

    You are my sunshine, friend.

    I will return the favour. Simply read this thread and bask in my objective brilliance.

    Honestly for ****s sake mate, I asked you to do this so you could put at least 2 of my media threads in the top 7. What sort of pro-nunez-eka-propoganda piece is this?!?

    You have been reported.

    I am not a bot. I am a Volunteer BigFooty Moderator. I do not have mod powers but my reports are taken seriously and those who get on my bad side tend to get banned in under 24 hours. I have numerous rules, which you may read in my post history, but 1 is the most important rule of all

    I am an officer in training, and I expect to be treated the same way I would be with my uniform and badge. Watch your back and get used to this face kiddo, you'll be seeing a lot of it.
