2011 WTForum Player of the Year

This thread will be updated each week with the results from the forum-wide Player of the Year poll.

Each week fans are asked to vote in the front page poll, giving 3 votes to their “best” player from that week’s game, 2 to their second best and 1 to their third best.

The votes are tallied by the server, then at the end of the week the player with the most votes is given 3 points, 2 to the second highest polling player and 1 to the third highest.

If two players poll the same amount of votes, both players receive equal points based on their polled ranking, with a total of 6 points allocated each week unless a tie occurs. (eg. if two players tie for first place, both receive 3 points and no other players receive any, or, if two players tie for third, they both receive 1 point each).

At the end of the year the player with who receives the most votes will be awarded the WestsTigersForum.com 2011 Player of the Year.

hmm, kul, I do agree that the system needs to be changed, I’m staggered beyond belief that consistent good performers such as Utai and Ayshford have missed out.

I think your cumulative totals idea is worth looking at - that was if someone like ayshford/utai is always 4th, he has a shot at still being player of the year due to his consistent form.

I put this in the other thread.

Going off the proportional system, the ladder would be:

Benji Marshall - 1234 points
Matt Utai - 635 points
Chris Heighington - 605 points
Keith Galloway - 538 points
Robert Lui - 444 points
Andrew Fifita - 391 points
Robbie Farah - 382 points
Blake Ayshford - 382 points
Chris Lawrence - 381 points
Wade McKInnon - 377 points
Simon Dwyer - 340 points
so on…

as I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I won’t change the system unless there is overwhelming support. So far more people are against the change

as opposed to….

R. Lui [144]
K. Galloway [117]
C. Heighington [58]
B. Gibbs [38]
M. Utai [35]

If people wish ro recognise constant performers then they should allocate there points as such.

I have had points going to Utai and Heighno as they have been deserved.

does anyone know a statistician or someone more qualified who can give an opinion?

*fifita and farah both finished with the same votes

Why did people continuously vote for benji? He is a talent, but, look at consistent players such as ayshford and brown and how hard they work. Watch the game not just the stars.
