  • I voted for three tournaments, none have been and there's two places left...

    ...I will lose my shıt!
    Not really losing it... but the football crests and World Cup Goals deserved inclusion!

    It simply had to be, imo. An All-Ireland with a twist, and some shocks along the way in the county showdowns to boot.


    All compiled excellently by an incredible game host.


    (He's got a new tournament taking nominations at the moment too btw)

    Not sure I really deserve it as most of my Sheep/Peehs are simple enough but thanks everyone for the votes. I am humbled :)

  • Another individual category for our penultimate Award and it's back to Tournaments for

    Best Tournament Host




  • Very surprised that the Football Club Crests tournament didn't get a mention.

    Maybe people are still shellshocked from the finals of Elephant FC vs Goat FC and the going ons of both camps.




  • In FIFTH Place


    Reberetta

  • Agreed - could probably win boards thread of the year, if there was such a thing. Joyful and educating from start to finish

    I like to imagine Mackers sat in a cave somewhere now, not caring at all about awards. Maybe eating a raw cow. He'll emerge to run the sports venues, then disappear again

    Very well deserved Necro!

    And "simple enough", says the inventor of triple threat and EMU :p

    Only ran one tournament this year but it was a classic, and introduced us to the Second Chance Showdown.

    Maybe 2021 will be the year for a UK/Irish Comedy stars battle royale eh ;)




  • To the podium!!

    Jaysis, wasn't expecting to be in the running fot this at all, as I only had the one and it was way back at the start of lockdown (the OG lockdown that is, in March).

    Cheers again for anyone who gave me votes.




  • In SECOND Place with 35 points

    Silver medal for myself - personally I felt Kol and Strawbs were more deserving than myself but thank you nonetheless for the votes




  • And in FIRST Place, taking home the bacon with 48 points

    Omackeral!!



    tenor.gif?itemid=10692456


    Again, deserving winner here. My 1-2-3 were Omack, Kol and Strawbs here but definitely and completely deserving the title with some classics is our Omack.

    Here's to more in 2021!!




  • Which brings us to our final voting category

    Danke Necro and thanks to those who voted for me.

    Any chance you could reveal who voted for whom so we know who the egomaniacs are who voted for themselves?
