TFK's favourite The Wire Character - nominations thread

Right folks,

Below are a list of The Wire Characters I have thrown together. I have split it into four groups.

I will randomise them into four polls with the top 4 in each poll going into the last 16. We will then have polls pitting two characters against each other with the winner going to the next round until we have one left standing.

I have around 40+ characters listed - if I am missing anyone feel free to nominate them here and I will include them. Will set up the prelimary polls on Friday

I will randomise the names in each group into 4 even number heats. So it won’t be a case the top 4 law and order.

Its been years, I will need to watch it all over again and get back to you

The black lad with the scar. Him

Bill Rawls will be hard bet.
