Another season spent inside creating “quality”content.
5 votes through 1, with 5 being the good one, obviously.
Extra awards / commendations welcome as always:
5 - @scotty21 - standout season, or should I say STANDOUT SEASON THE TIGER ARMY WONT LIKE THAT ONE BIT DARCE
4 - @Drapersmullet - super intelligent and takes no sh.t from anyone, I dig that
3 - @Glu - another standout year of posting impeccably logical content and being immeasurably patient
2 - @Lefty - for forever hoping that straight sets is going to happen.
1 - @westozziebomber - for outstanding football and meat related content
Special award - Thread of the year - undoubtedly the Olympics thread. Hilarious and the coverage of obscure sports was brilliant. Loved every second.
Your turn. Who will join previous winners such as DJR (who counts the votes - surprise surprise) and last year’s super ironic winner Nino (he won didn’t he? I lost interest towards the end…) - edit, it was actually @nackers that won - my apologies!
Thanks to everyone who makes this place a good joint to waste time, particularly over the last few years when people have been struggling with not doing their normal social activities. I know I appreciate people’s good humour, robust discussion and kindness when the chips have been down and I’m sure I’m not the only one. You’re good eggs
5 - @nackers them training reports!
4 - @nickers forum charity game wouldn’t work without his help
3 - @theDJR timelord of the watchalongs and running them when I got dicked by work
2 - @Stallion gotta look after my boo
1 - @brem06 MVP of the Olympic thread
Thread of the year: Without a doubt the Olympics Thread
Post of the year: @Bomb_Doe photo shopping Kim Jong Un onto Hodge’s lite n easy ad. Legit spat out my weeties
Im voting for @Hot_Ganipganaps. So there!
The Olympics thread was just amazing. Dare I say the best Olympics thread ever
It was extraordinary how it morphed from “who the ■■■■ cares about the Olympics” to “■■■■ yes Olympics!” so quickly
I think the timezone and lockdown played a huge part on the popularity of it this time round
anyone in the cooking thread gets a vote from me
and Ivan for turning every thread into a best 22 discussion
5 ANNOUNCE @scotty21 Consistent all year, stood up in the big moments. Clutch performer.
4 @nackers Puts in a lot of work on the training track and delivers week to week.
3 @theDJR Just continues to excel, year in, year out. Just when you think he’s gone, he comes back. Like a boomerang. Or something.
2 @redbull Plenty of interaction between us, and gives me a good laugh on the regular.
1 @westozziebomber Blitz wouldn’t be Blitz without WOB, and you all know it.
Thread of year: Olympics thread. Haven’t laughed so hard so regularly in a long time.
5 - @THE_DON1 for the enormous amount of work he puts into draftee profiling & answering endless Qs (mainly from myself). Have also had the pleasure of kicking a footy around with him in the forum games - the man can play!
4 - @nackers kinda goes without saying. Training reports are internet gold, especially during lockdowns. Also one of the loveliest Blitzers I’ve had the fortune of meeting (another forum footy pal!).
3 - @scotty21 Forum footy organiser, 2MP manifester and all round cracking bloke.
2 - @westozziebomber for so perfectly highlighting the passion and frustration of an obsessed Bomber fan each week, dishing up some absolute pearlers along the way.
1 - @saladin for making sense of everything in this absolute asylum (at times) of a forum. One of the more articulate, insightful posters on Blitz.
Shout outs also to @Saucy & @Henry_s_Angry_Pills for some top shelf satire, along with news-breakers @Wanderlust & @Speedy_Gonzales for always being first on the scene with the Bomber goss.
All threads lead to the best 22. It is known.
You should have to name the best 22 threads and best 22 posters
5 - @Bessie. Our shared love of all things Hooksy is a thing of beauty.
4 - @Hoffy. How you manage your own life/work plus the Covid thread is beyond me.
3 - @Koala. Just a deadset non judgemental (well you might be but you don’t put it in writing) ripper of a person.
2 - @Heffsgirl. Canberra correspondent and speaker of common sense.
1 - @em2009. For contributions to the cooking thread, covid thread and an epic @swoodley take down.
Honourable mentions to @bigallan, @miss_ellie and @Wanderlust.
What about if they don’t cook meat?
The Olympics thread was one of those ones that only comes along every 5 years or do.
- How many goal
- Caddy thread
- why is the game played on ANZAC Day
And so on
Special award: Sustained excellence in Worsfold hatred: @efc1robbo (special commendation @wimmera1 )
At first glance I thought this said “Stop the ■■■■!”
I don’t know I have sort of forgotten about it already, hardly will be worthy in future reference
