    Surmo is who I immediately thought of. Maybe he'll be back next year.

    I originally thought it was a MF alt because it was the while not having Cleary thing

    Appreciate the compliments Jele cheer Awesome work you've done with the community team this year too. Helped keep me involved when I might've gone quiet otherwise.

    Re. Meltdown of the year, coming from a former champion, it's gotta be Surmo. The Cleary whinging every game, crapping on about groupthink and accusing people of stealing his KFC zingers or something. Then came back and doubled down when Cleary got injured.

    MF's was more sudden and I didn't see the Taffethegoat one. I thought he just deleted his account, but maybe I missed something epic Laughing

    I'm not sure it was Surmo because there was a bit of 'you're all a bunch of woke pussies' involved in it and I wouldn't associate that with Surmo (could be wrong). It started out as 'Cleary rage' from memory and then spread far and wide on a number of topics

    I think MF's was purely Cleary rage and Surmo's was similar. Slug's was just the usual shit

    Edit : high possibility I'm wrong...it could be Surmo

    The "Cleary captaincy ruining the game" rage quit was 100% Surmo. I went back and found some posts the other night to double check and although his posts are now by "Guest", when he's quoted it still says surmo

    How did I forget the Surmo meltdown when voting? He racked up a few 16s in Fantasy Fantasy once Cleary got injured, so I guess he was vindicated??

    Surmo also flipped out about "Bob Jane" the year before, but that was at least funny as he came up with a whole squad of cryptic nicknames to make his point.

    My pride n joy, wish it stuck more than a year. I still threw the name Bob Jane out their a couple of times this year, just for ole time sake, got a couple winks.

    I didnt see a huge MF spit, didnt he just say a few things and say I'm off.

    Problem was Bob Jane wasn’t fantasy relevant this season.

    But if he can hold the starting spot he’s got now into R1 next week, it’ll roll back into mainstream use

    @Jele wrote:at the risk of forgetting or offending anyone, just wanted to highlight the contribution of a few posters:

    - EasyTiger's general posts, running of the POD comp, team tracker thread
    - Cookie Monster's running of the fantasy fantasy comp, and loopholing genius 
    - L-Jimmy's posts cracked me up all year
    - Camo123 always on the spot with mail, injury reports, general info and great judgement
    - WT2K is the twitter king
    - LB because its always good to wake up to his posts getting the fantasy thread running each morning
    - Winfield for just being an all-round legend (with a great avatar)
    - shoutout to Concussed and Pacey, who are on track to finish 1-2 in the VSDT comp 

    Thanks to a bunch of others too - maybe the more usual suspects who know who they are - for your advice, humour, banter throughout the year

    Thanks, Jele - but I'd say your contribution should be top of the list.
    Personally, I find it hard enough to keep on top of running my own team - let alone the job you've done throughout the year running the Community team.

    Honestly, you're contribution each and every week is outstanding and very much appreciated - I'm sure by all.
    I've got to say, you also seem like a top bloke who is a real positive influence amongst the fabric of this forum - so always great reading your posts.
    Cheers!

    I kinda don't know how awards work.. I probably should've promoted my POTY nomination to get more support Laughing

    Before I start with the announcements I wanted to say it's been a great turn out for votes this year, a little up on last year. Many of the winners still came down to a single vote and there were loads of those who received multiple votes and still didn't get into the top 3 for each category.

    May have been a shit year for fantasy for a lot of us but the forum has still been humming along with good vibes.

    On to the first category!

    TEAM NAME OF THE YEAR 2021!

    3rd Place:

    Papa Don't Bleach (Papadontbleach)

    2nd Place:

    I started with milf HELP ME (ytsb)

    1st Place:

    Probably helped by the fact that we were cheering him on near the top of the rankings for a fair chunk of the season so his team name would've been front of mind for a lot of people. Also the avatar helps!

    Congratulations MULVY - You've gotta be made of Molo

    Trophy
