    Default The 2010 PD Forum Awards! AWARDS HALFWAY DONE, WEEK 3 FINALS UP!

    Ok, Hicks asked me to run this for him this year (and I think that's fitting since I am the one that basically started the conversation about having them here http://pacersdigest.com/showthread.p...t=forum+awards) and I think it's one of the most fun things we do over the summer while it's boring. But, I'm gonna start the discussion and nominations now because I've got a few ideas. But first, here are the award winners for the past couple years (2006 and 2007 are gone, did the crash kill them? 2005/2004 are still there)

    So that gives you an idea of the categories we've had over the years and here are the categories I think are the most essential:
    MVP - Obviously, who do you think is the most important member of the board? Who has the most insight? Who always fosters lively discussion? Whose posts do you look forward to reading? This category is the most important one.

    ROTY - I think this one is close to the top because it shows the direction of the forum. Which newcomer wowed you the most?

    MagicRat Award - Shortening this one cuz everyone knows he's funny, so the award should just be his name. (same will go for Tbird.) Who provided the comic relief, who made you ? Who got you in trouble at work for laughing when you should be working?

    T-Bird Award - Who provided the most keen eye when it came to in game situations and player breakdowns? Whose opinion on a player or a team do you trust the most?

    Post More Often - This is less of an award and more of a plea from other posters. We like what you do, do more of it! It's still an honor to get though and I think maybe we should rename it. Any suggestions?

    Darksider/Sunshiner/Moderate - Seperate categories, one explanation. Who were the leaders of their respective sides in debates? Who loved to love the Pacers/everything they do? Who loved to hate their direction? Who played the best Switzerland?

    Best Foreigner/Best Non Pacer Fan - One is from a different country, and one is from another fan base, who were the best?

    PPOTY/PTOTY - The best Pacers related post, and thread, respectively

    OTPOTY/OTTOTY - The best OT post, and thread, respectively


    Inessential awards
    Best Debator - Unless everyone disagrees, I think this category can go. The Darksider/Sunshiner/Moderate awards cover this I think and generally one of those posters is arguing/debating the most.

    Underrated Poster - I think this is covered by post more often. Once again, if I'm wrong or you really love this category, let me know.

    MIPoster - This has been gone in recent years but generally it's kind of insulting since it implies you sucked as a poster before. Generally it awards posters that weren't quite MVP material but I think we have enough other awards for those posters.

    Most Fanatical - I think is covered by Sunshiner.

    Best couple - doesn't apply every year and is generally kind of a joke

    Poster You Love to Hate - Covered by Darksider generally.


    Possible New Awards:
    There are a couple of awards I think would be interesting to add to the mix.

    OTMVP - This is the best poster that keeps discussion lively in the other boards. Who gives us insight into things besides the Pacers?

    Draft King - Kind of a companion to TBird award (and one he could be eligible to win too) This poster keeps us updated on all things college basketball and keeps us informed on who the Pacers/rest of the NBA, should/will pick.

    I'd also be interested in any suggestions for new awards or tweaks for old awards anyone has!


    Post in the thread with nominations for the different categories, suggestions for new categories or tweaks for old, and thoughts about the awards in general!

    Are we supposed to be re-nominating people? If so, I re-nominate cordobes for all the above categories.

    MVP: UncleBuck

    I feel like Buck's been fighting the good fight a lot lately against an overwhelming opponent with little support from folks like myself who generally agree with him.

    Perhaps one of the awards should be named in honor of ABADays.

    I have few ideas :

    "homer of the year": Duke Dynamite, nobody is a bigger homer than my guy Duke

    "devil's advocate of the year": unclebuck, he keeps the conversation going and likes to be positive about JOB

    "Darksider of the year": unclebuck, whoever likes JOB should be a darksider

    "Non Pacers fan of the year": Cordobes, really good poster, one of the best

    "Best poster of the year": Naptown Seth, nobody writes more than this guy in one post, his inside information about NBA prospects is really good.

    "Tin foil in my head": Bills, there is not one post were he does not talk about the Pacers leaving town and for that I nominate him

    "post more often": Peck, we need him to post more, he is one of the funnies guys in PD and his sarcasm is out of proportion and I like that.

    "MPV" Hicks, without him this forum wouldn't be the same.

    If you've been paying attention this year, "homer" is one thing that wouldn't be used to describe me.

    I don't have a real idea on what category best fits, but basketballfan should be nominated for something....if "underrated" is still a category I think that is the best for that, but if not I'll nominate her for MVP. She posts alot of news on here, and on several different topics.

    UncleBuck is another great nominee for MVP, as are Hicks, Peck, Count 55 bball and Naptown Seth.

    I'll give some more thought to the other categories.

    That's a good idea. We should recognize generosity, willingness to help others and openness, and ABADays had all of those in spades.

    I like the outstanding citizen award idea. Also you can nominate more than one person. If someone has already been nominated you can renom then but you don't have to.

    Kinda think the thread of the year should be the one where whoever did the cartoon virtual thing with the guys discussing JOB. That was classic.

    I think the outstanding citizen award in honor of ABA days if the best ideas we've had for this awards show in years.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Division Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 1989, 1990, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008
    Conference Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 2005
    NBA Champions 1989, 1990, 2004

    It's really interesting that this awards show pre-dates PD itself. We had them back at RATS long before 2004, and them brought them over here.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Division Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 1989, 1990, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008

    I skipped a bunch and will provide additional nominations later.

    Love the ABADays Citizen concept, but I'm not sure I see how it'd work. Is this something we should vote on or just ask people to submit stories/nominations and just recognize them all?

    Also, I wasn't entirely sure what the cutoff point is for 'ROTY'. I did a search for folks who joined after April 1, 2009 and had 200+ posts. Here is that list, if others might find it helpful: 90sNBARocked, AlexAustin, cdash, cordobes, DaveP63, Day-V, GrangeRushHibbert, graphic-er, HanSolo, HoosierGuy, IUfan4life, judicata, ksuttonjr76, MLB007, Mr Smith, PacerDude, Psycho T, SMosley21, Sookie, sportfireman
