Gol D. Roger
Please, for the love of God, vote for Whitebeard.
Yes, Roger is the Pirate King, but we have no idea about his ability.
We CANNOT have a guy we don't know winning the tournament!!!
The Epicness of Wbs death itself should be the reason to vote him.... People have followed him like anything... Why even a question like that is coming ... Whitebeared was a person with no D in his name but seems like he understood well the will of D.,.. out of respect to the character .... I will go for Whitebeared,,,
Guys, if Roger (whose abilities and powers we actually now nothing about) wins here, then he'll most likely win against Shanks (or Mihawk, but lol) in the next round aswell. Making Gol D. Roger the strongest man in One Piece ... which is corny as sh*t.
So my vote goes to Whitebeard, for an awesome final round of this tournament.
Well he shouldn't have been in the tournament at all. Neither should anyone we haven't seen fighting. You can twist and turn it all you want. The fact we haven't seen him fight makes no difference, because, as Oda stated, they were equals. It all comes down to who you like more.
It's impossible to know who is stronger here as Oda himself said so many times that they draw. Sure Roger was te Pirate King, however WB himself said to Roger that he didn't want the title (I don't remember the chapter, they were on an island talking, Roger offered to tell WB where the One Piece was and WB refused) so I'm not using the title as a way to decide the winner.
I'll vote WB for two reasons. One, he was the last survivor. Even if Roger didn't surrender to the Marines, he would have died before WB because of his disease. Second, because if Roger wins hhere, there'll be no discussion next round as he won against WB based on is title not is fighting abilities, which we never saw.
My vote's gotta be for whitey... since some guys are saying Roger wins this cuz he was the king , I'll say he already lost to the executioners
They fought to a draw in the past, but roger was sick in the past, and if a sick roger can tie healthy whitebeard, i'll give it to roger
I'll go with Roger, since by tournament rules, we go by the character as we last saw them.
We saw Roger in his prime, but Whitebeard as old and sick (and as Marco said, not evading attacks he used to be able to).
So if they used to be on par, then the rules dictate Roger wins.
... But it's not like people have actually been voting based off the rules... just voting however they want, haha. *shrug*

WB for me, showed feats and stuff
It leaves plenty of time for skirmishes with Whitebeard. Nobody ever said Whitebeard was born in New World and never left it. They could have fought in several places. Besides, it's not like it took Roger 30 years to get to New World. That's a little too much.
Anyway, it all boils down to Roger starting his pirating career as a kid and ending around his fifties. Which means he was perfectly fine most of his life and we have no reason to think that any kind of illness made him weaker in his fights with Whitebeard.
