From now until 3PM Wednesday (I will try to make this go by that time every weekday), everyone has their chance to vote for the 2004 Most Pessimistic Poster.

The Nominees Are:
efx
indytoad
Kstat
Shade
zxc

Kstat
06-22-2004, 04:45 PM
I'm not even sure why we need to vote over this one. :laugh:

ChicagoJ
06-22-2004, 04:46 PM
I always have a hard time keeping the 'alphabet guys', efx and zxc, separate.

Can somebody help me learn the difference between these guys?

Shade
06-22-2004, 04:48 PM
Toad will win this one in a landslide. Others will get votes, but they shouldn't. :laugh:

Personally, I'm probably third-most pessimistic amongst the nominees, behind Toad and zxc. ;)

Now, if we trade Ron for Bonzi, I may be climbing the polls very quickly... :mad:

zxc is classicly known for pointing out something negative during the game, and loves using this to end each statement: =/

Kstat
06-22-2004, 04:51 PM
efx always struck me as more "realistic" than negative.

Kstat
06-22-2004, 04:51 PM

It doesn't matter, nobody can beat the Toad.

zxc is very similar to Toad in his pessimism concerning the Pacers, but slightly less vocal. Most of his posts sport a "=/"

efx is pessimistic about pretty much everything. I don't think I've ever read a post of his that wasn't pessimistic to some degree. :laugh:

Come to think of it, I'm not as pessimistic as him either. :p

Shade, I nominated you for this category, but I could have nominated you for the most optimistic also, you run hot and cold.

But I voted for Indytoad, Pacers might beat the Spurs by 15 points and he would be pessimistic about something. Don't change though, we need all kinds

That's right, he primarily posts during games, and I rarely get to...

I know which lilly pad that my vote is going to 'hop' to.

I think it was pretty much your famous "We (the Pistons) suck! We may as well call it a year!" speech pre-Sheed that got you in. :laugh:

Hicks
06-22-2004, 04:57 PM
I'm not sure how kstat even made this one.

There were basically the "big 4" with a lot of nominations, then Kstat just has like 1 more vote than the sea of people who got 1 or 2.

Shade
06-22-2004, 04:58 PM
Looks like I have a couple fans. :laugh:

This will make me 0-5 on award nominations this year. :laugh: :cry: :shrug:

Hey...maybe that should win a forum award... ;) :devil:

MagicRat

Ok, who are the knuckleheads that voted for shade :laugh:

I did, on the strength of the most memorably pessimistic post of the year, IMO....

Miami will win this series. And in 6 games, I might add. Backdoor sweep..........

......When this is all done and we've suffered another in a long line of playoff failures and underachievements, Miami will go on to get swept by the Nets, who will in turn be swept by the Lakers.

It sucks to be an NBA fan.

I figured that might be it.

Still, does anyone here think we ould have won the east WITHOUT Rasheed? I mean, I still dont think it was an unrealistic thing to say, even now.

I TOTALLY forgot about that post...... :o

That probably moves him up to #2 on my list, but it would take a LOT more to pass up IndyToad....

I guess I'm suffering from Bender syndrome. One big post does not overshadow a full season of consistant pessimism. ;) :laugh:

Kstat
06-22-2004, 05:04 PM
IndyToad is like the shaq of pessimism. People can have brilliant flashes of negativity every now and then, but at the end of the day there's no doubt who the most dominant force is. :D

ChicagoJ

I dunno, that's kinda your "Christmas Day" game. :P

I remembered that post, and you had several similar comments that week. Now that you've shown the potential, we'll expect you to deliver on a consistent basis next season. :unimpressed:

Woo-hoo! Second-place! :rockon:

BostonConnection
06-22-2004, 05:25 PM
Personally, I feel if you've ever read a game thread, you can't not vote for zxc.

:confused:

But that's only because zxc tends to post more in game threads than Toad does. I keep an eye on the game chats while the game thread is going on, and have witnessed posts by IT that even had zxc taking a step back and saying, "whoa, that's a little too much even for me"! :laugh:

Kegboy
06-22-2004, 05:28 PM
Well, the difference IMO is I've seen Toad write funny stuff, and thoughtful stuff, he's not pessimistic all the time. I can't say I've ever seen a non-pessimistic post from zxc.

Yeah IndyToad never seems serious, some of his posts just way over the top. Even I had to go with Shade, seems like he is really about to jump off a bridge or something sometimes when things aren't going well.

As for me, well, suppose not even being in contention is a good thing? Maybe =\

I voted Shade.

I believe Toad's schtick is to be pessimistic, so I couldn't vote for him.

I don't know how KStat got nominated for this category. :confused:

I don't know too much of the other guys.

Good luck, Shade!

May the force be with you!

I'm just so proud that neither Bball or myself are even considered for this anymore.

If I'm not mistaken didn't you (bball) win this a couple of times over on the starforum?

Either way, whooo hoo I'm officially a member of the sunshine brigade.

Bball did win this at least once, and Peck you were always in the runing for this award.

But this past year there was not too much to be pessimistic about.
