Maybe the groups those teams are in? Though that would only go up to H.

Okay, so a couple things to point out about the self and kill clues:

Self Clue: How about school colors? It would seem to me that posting a clue about school colors would be vague enough at this point of the game, and if it can be assumed it was the case, That would point to the assassinator being a regular player. Any regular players have green school colors?

Kill clue: Someone may have already found this and dismissed it, but ill throw it out there anyway. If you take the first letter from every country in the text, and set it with the first letters of the bolded countries of the PAD,(UP), the two letters that convert are ID. This may not be anything, but if the protects haven't turned out anything when the dealine nears, i'll fall back on this.

Sorry, been kinda busy with work.

Just something to keep in mind, look at this wall chart bracket:

http://soccernet.espn.go.com/world-cup/ ... 901&ver=us

Look at where Uruguay is and where Portugal is.

I really can't see any more of a connection between Uruguay and Portugal except the ID if you pad UP. I tried that yesterday and meant to post it for Idaho's sake, but he seems to have got it too.

Because you all seem to be having a tough time:

Zyzzya98 is half correct.

Also, you're making it a lot harder than it really is.

Half correct, lol, after I provided anything you ever wanted to know about the country save the population and first language.

Do we maybe put each group in order of rank?
EDIT: I noticed that Uruguay is first in Group A and that Portugal was 2nd in Group G. I think we put them in order of Group and rank in group. That would get you to:
URU, FRA, ARG, GRE, USA, GER, NED, ITA, BRA, POR. idk if that helps at all
