Looks like the counting lobby has a chance to dominate the awards this year.

in honor of the counting lobby, i'm going to count throughout this thread and I encourage other posters to do the same in nominating a counter as rookie of the year!

As a former ROY, I think the Duke far and away deserves this year's award.

Yes, I know he also qualifies for another award, but I'm not going to let it take away from my vote in this instance.

All respect to Kester, who is without a doubt a very close 2nd.

count55
04-28-2008, 06:35 PM
While duke dynamite clearly is the favorite, I counted two things against him:

1. He's campaigning for the award
2. He voted for himself

Kester gets the nod from me.

04-28-2008, 06:42 PM
Gotta give it to Dukie.

I likes the kester also, but Dukie shot up the post count leaders in TCT faster than I've ever witnessed. That is impressive.

Nothing wrong with a little campaigning nor with voting for oneself. Do you think Hillary is voting for Barack?!!

Not turning this into a political discussion, just making a point. Every person is obligated to vote for the person they think is best suited for the title. If that person is you, vote for you.

I'd like to see who t-bird voted for, as the reigning ROY.

Kinda sad that the other previous ROY winners (Soup, Jay and Pacers_girl) aside from myself really aren't around anymore.

maybe we counters could somehow influence the ballot so that d00gie and kesty end up even?

yea, I was also snubbed by the nomination commitee. And yeah, Duke joined in 06 apparently, I smell foul play... unfortuantly I didn't realize this till after I voted for him. :D

I created my account then, and lurked until the middle of March. At that time I changed my name.

Thanks.

I think before I started posting last month I think I did my two mandatory posts, then maybe 2 more after that. Then I just lurked because I thought logging into a forum took too much work. lol

It's an honor just to be nominated... :D

heywoode
04-28-2008, 10:04 PM
just so we're clear....

There was some discussion as to whether Dukie would be able to be nominated and the consensus was that it ought to be roughly the last year instead of rigidly the last year because of the situation of joining and getting a date stamp, but not actually contributing (to the level that might earn one a ROTY award) until later. The rules for nominations stated as such.

I would hope everyone would be flexible enough to recognize the possibility for a little bit of limbo where official join dates are concerned...

Let's face it, everyone who was nominated for ROTY has made enough of a name for themselves to be solid contributors around here, and that is the positive we should all be focusing on! Nice crop of rookie prospects this year...We are certainly looking to be flush with quality contributors for the future...

Another close call between New Guy and K-Man. I went with K-Man in the end, but have New Guy at a very close second. Go counters!

One of these years I'll get nominated for one of these awards. I think I may be the only poster that has attended a forum party and has no noms.

04-29-2008, 03:12 AM
I think when you stepped up and set up that UnPD to replace the politics forum, you earned a big oorah, Pig Nash man...just don't know what category...maybe a special service award???

I've been lurking for a while before joining and several deserve this award this year... It's a close one but my vote eventually goes to the Duke :)

It was between Double D and K-Man for me, but after reviewing the ultra important "Threads Started" link in his profile, Double D got my vote. I didn't realize he had taken and shared game photos.

NOW you start holding your tongue?!?! Thanks for nothing.


I'm was surprised to find out how many posters I thought had been around a long time were really up for ROY. That's a good sign when you don't get the Endless September vibe from them.

duke dynamite
04-29-2008, 01:54 PM
Speaking of photos, I am in the works of a "Best of" gallery for the season.

Be on the lookout for it!

duke dynamite
04-29-2008, 06:30 PM
I hope I get the honor of making a ROY signature.

Do we get a trophy during the forum party if we win?

Sorry, but OT:
This was the rookie year for my new camera. It really did exceed it's expectations. I'm hoping I will have better photos for next.

Thanks Mal, and salute to PD.

It's an honor, and I have to say, a bit of a surprise to me. Lots of better basketball minds than mine on this site, and funnier folks. Respects to jeffg-body, count55, DgR, pianoman, iPacer, GrangerRanger, and the ever-enthusiastic duke dynamite.

This site has been a joy to me...one of the best things I've ever come across on the web...good community, good admins, good people (and counting Canadians!). This round of virtual beer's on me.

So here's hoping for another great year of Pacers Digest, and a really good year for the Indiana Pacers.

A) too late chump, Redd already beat you to it. Maybe bump this right before the vote next year for funniest poster.

B) I would think that Stanko, err, you would be pretty familiar with all of Europe.


Nice crop of rookie posters, but I'm shocked that one of the LA posters from the summer didn't win.

Let's be honest, other than peaches there isn't much difference between SC and Armenia. The both speak pigeon English for starters.*



* for those keeping count** I think that's item #6 toward "most insulting" in the 2009 vote. Make sure to bookmark appropriately.



** that shouldn't be a problem around here, I mean it even smells a bit like maple syrup in this thread.

It will be my duty, and my desire, to meet your every post with a negative comment about your grammar, your stance, and your argument.

I WILL SMASH YOUR FACE INTO A JELLY!

As long as you keep Stanko off me.


ps - what flavor of jelly? Can I suggest Mixed Berry as a personal preference, or Cherry. But not that preserves crap, I don't like chucks of fruit on my toast. "I'm eating my own face".

It might be just 1 degree removed, but that whole sentence has the faint whiff of TWSS on it.

Naptown_Seth

You want your face beaten into a syrup?

You realize this is not in the cookbook sense, such as mixing your face with a syrup, nor the Willie Wonka sense such as smashing your face down into a giant purple bowl of syrup.

The kind of beating it would take just to get your nose into a syrupy state is unthinkable. And then there's the whole concern with the kind of smelly*, count-addicted Canadians that this would attract.


* #7 on the offensive comments campaign, I'm winning that ba***** * in a landslide

* #8, thus the extra * at the end
