Warning...Please Read


While we want you to support your favorite legacy and say amazing things about them, we WILL NOT accept negative bashing of other people or who they support. A good rule of thumb to go by: If you are thinking about saying something negative, step away from the keyboard. Debate is fine but some people don't understand HOW to debate, so better to just leave it alone. Failure to follow this simple rule will get you banned from EVERY SUMMER E GAMES EVENT and ALL MEDALS WILL BE STRIPPED. This is for fun and nothing more.
