You got me - I did try to resist, ■■■■ it!
I don’t think @Alan_Noonan_10 has any problem making execution executive decisions…
And i feel like excluding certain voters because they’re ■■■■■.
I would exclude 67% of the population from Voting in a Federal election, plus all of Qld.
From personal experience it is a rather thankless task! None the less I always enjoyed collating the votes and seeing the voting patterns. I could guarantee that there would be far fewer votes to count if we lost and even fewer in loses late in season.
But as others have said @Alan_Noonan_10 can choose how he want to run the thing. I’m sure the way I counted the votes was also different to how @Mero did for many years and how @BomberMcVeigh did it when helping out.
I’d have thought the only different thing I do is to eliminate countbacks.
It does get a tad annoying when you see new posts, and all it is is Bomber_A ■■■■■■■■ about people voting for Hurls.
What you do with dummy votes and where people only vote for 1 person may be different
Ignore the dummy votes or when a person gives all 6 to the same player.
If they mention multiple players for the third vote, it goes to the first named.
There was a case recently where someone gave 3 2’s. I accepted that. I always check that anomalies between the 3’s, 2’s and 1’s are explainable. They often get out of whack, and i might have to start again.
There was someone the other week, maybe vs WCE, that someone gave votes to the 3 players attracting the most criticism. I ignored it.
It’s been quite a few years since I’ve tallied the votes, however I never bothered with votes where people did not follow the basic rules.
If they put three players names, with lesser votes, I just made it 3-2-1,
If they didn’t put three players I didn’t count it at all.
If they put the umpires names in, or an opposition player who stuffed something up I didn’t count it.
That said, usually the best player of the season win the Medal.
