Talk:last sixteen

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

"Sweet Sixteen" is the exact analogue to "last sixteen" as the entry at that page demonstrates. Where terms are exact analogues, it is reasonable to note it. Cheers. Collect (talk) 20:15, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

I'm not sure what you mean by "exact analogue", but regardless, the problem was apparently that the entry linked to [[sweet sixteen]], which was clearly irrelevant. —RuakhTALK 21:00, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
And I emended it. Cheers. Collect (talk) 21:07, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
Yes, I saw. That's why I wrote "linked" rather than "links". :-)   —RuakhTALK 21:09, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

last sixteen[edit]

This just seems to be last X where X is an integer. Last 64, 32, 16, 8, 4 and 2 are most common just because that's how knockout tournaments work; you can be in the last three as well (the gap between one semi-final and the next one, there are three competitors remaining). SoP, delete. Mglovesfun (talk) 20:11, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

IMO this ought to be at RFV, where it would need to be cited as defined (a particular round in a tournament) distinct from the number or group of competitors that make up the round. Equinox 22:14, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

delete per Mglovesfun. --Hekaheka (talk) 03:53, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

Sweet Sixteen is a specific term for one particular last sixteen - US Basketball. The elimation stage of the World Cup would not be called the Sweet Sixteen, and it would be misleading our readers to redirect it there. Smurrayinchester (talk) 11:58, 15 May 2012 (UTC)
@TAKASUGI Shinji, I'm not disputing its correctness, only its validity here. Mglovesfun (talk) 12:08, 15 May 2012 (UTC)
Okay, in that case, we must explain it in last. — TAKASUGI Shinji (talk) 14:41, 15 May 2012 (UTC)
