Addicts Bracket Challenge: Best Season of The Simpsons, Week 8

It was six years ago, just after the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs bracket was complete that I thought it might be cool to do a The Simpsons Tapped Out bracket. Here we are six years later, and it’s time for our seventh TSTO Addicts Bracket Battle!

How much longer EA can keep Tapped Out going is up for debate. It is equally debatable how long The Simpsons will keep going. But what isn’t debatable is that there have been A LOT of incredible seasons of The Simpsons. 32 in fact. But which of the 32 seasons has truly been the best? With that in mind, we present to you TSTO Addicts’ The Best Season of The Simpsons Bracket Battle.

For rules and regulations, check out the Week 1 post here.


First, for the results from last week:

Season 4 (78.1%) defeated Season 5 (21.9%)

Season 9 (64.7%) defeated Season 14 (35.3%)

Season 17 (75.0%) defeated Season 21 (25.0%)

Season 25 (64.5%) defeated Season 30 (35.5%)


Here’s the updated Bracket unveiled (click on image to view enlarged version):
