    I really cannot vote for anyone other than Bball. Kegboy, you tried really hard this past year but you just weren't quite dark enough - you needed more substance. Sorry to everyone else on this list, but maybe next year.

    I voted for Kegboy because he's obviously the youngest since he has boy in his name.

    I voted for BBall, not because I think he's truly dark, but because "darkside" is kind of a modern way of saying "hardass."

    BBall is the Bobby Knight of the forum. You may not like what he has to say, but what he says is the only cure, and has been since the beginning.

    P. S. No, BBall doesn't throw chairs and mock rape victims.

    All worthy candidates. Since I know Newman on a personal level, I likely exude some form of bias. However, he is definitely what I would consider a "darksider" when it comes to his respective team, the New York Knicks...and who is to blame him?

    Kegboy seems like the only true darksider on this list.

    Had I known I was in the running, I might have been more pessimistic. This season, even being a realist made you a darksider.

    (thx for the nom)

    Nah, I plan to vote for that guy that has old in his name too, if he's up for an award.

    I just figured would use a little different criteria in making my picks this year.

    I thought about voting for Kegboy, but since next year I'm convinced he'll be up for best non-Pacer fan I decided not to waste my vote.

    Since Bball's not up for MVP, I'll vote for him here.

    Most probably wouldn't believe I was a total Sally Sunshine back at RATS. And while I have had a precipitous fall the last 5 years, my scorched-earthdom still doesn't reach the owners like Bball. Though another year under Larry, I might just get there.

    I'm not going to vote because I don't want to get called for jury duty.

    Part of being darksider is voting selfishly for oneself.


    But come on, how is this not Bball's to lose. I'm not darksider, I'm more sunshiner with realistic expectations. After all my preseason prediction wasn't that far off and still I went to more games this year than last. Just because I realize it doesn't look good doesn't make me a darksider.

    Now BBall, I often wonder if he likes the team at all. And yet his posts are well thought out and rarely trollish in the least. Classy darksider if you will, like Darth in a tux.

    Shade is the consumate darksider of this board, but I gotta give it to Bball this year, he had great substance.

    Bball and Kegboy were the two I most looked at for voting. I went with Bball because while you could argue he's just a hard-core realist, I think there are times you could go either way with the evidence on the table, and he seems to lean towards the bleakest result.

    Great. So when I break both legs tomorrow, at least I'll know who to blame.

    You told me, I see you rise
    But, it always falls
    I see you come, I see you go
    You say, "All things pass into the night"
    And I say, "Oh no sir I must say you're wrong
    I must disagree, oh no sir, I must say you're wrong"
    Won't you listen to me

    You told me, I've seen it all before
    Been there, I've seen my hopes and dreams
    A lying on the ground

    I've seen the sky just begin to fall
    And you say, "All things pass into the night"
    And I say, "Oh no sir, I must say you're wrong
    I must disagree, oh no sir, I must say you're wrong"
    Won't you listen to me

    Good-bye horses I'm flying over you
    Good-bye horses I'm flying over you
