    Re: Poster of the Year Award

    Awe shucks Youk (blushing). Here is what happened midyear: Breidey (who can feel free to add his input too) stated here that there are three posters here that he automatically assumes are wrong and that he is right about whatever they wrote. I know I was one of them; I think Georom may have been another (or DGalehouse) and a third who I cannot recall. He went on to say that these three are fair game for ridicule whenever he sees fit to do so. That lacks objectivity since he is not right all the time; sometimes even WE are right. And to feel free to ridicule ANY poster here brings the board down a notch. No one here deserves ridicule. You either debate someone or you just ignore them. In fairness to Breidey, he has improved over the past several months and has been able to have a reasonable dialogue with anyone here. However, the award is for ALL of 2013.

    It wasn't Galehouse.  We occasionally disagree, but not too often,  The #3 was ADG.  Anyone who criticizes our #1 pick for being a slow-footed white OFer, when the guy is an SP, with excellent speed, just has to be criticized.

    And you can pull out my exact response if you want, but I believe my response was 'if you and I disagree, I will always assume I am right'.  I think I posted that in one of three threads.  It was either the 

    • Your late May thread when you said the season was over
    • The final 35 thread when you predicted 17-18
    • The thread where you said Doubront was a #5, at best
    • Or the thread where you said Lester was a #5

    I was wrong about all four of those comments. And many more, no doubt. However, if you and I disagree it does not mean that you are right and I am wrong every time (no, I am not going to go back searching for examples) nor does it mean that I am right and you are wrong. Sometimes neither of us is right because its a matter of opinion rather than a matter of fact. And as I wrote NO ONE deserves to be "ridiculed" here (=speech or action intended to cause contemptuous laughter at a person or thing; derision; Toridiculeis to make fun of, either sportively and good-humoredly,or unkindly with the intention of humiliating. ) Debated, sure. Or ignored. I stand by that opinion and although we have actually had some civil discussions of late, probably because both of us have toned it down, I think that whole exchange brought the board down a notch. Other posters have managed to avoid doing that entirely.

    We are all here to share our opinions and our love of the sox.  Do we really need a poster of the year or the worst poster of the year?

    I think you guys have too much time on your hands.  Pats are in the post season, follow them and don't worry about who the best or worst poster is.

    I'll obstain from voting as I didn't read even one compelling comment the entire year, including my own. No poster made any earth shattering comments which weren't influenced by some article which he read somewheres else! How about as posters you each give yourselves a pat on the back, I can at least claim I was suspended for 90 days because of some whiny little school boy or girl complaining to BDC mods. I'd like to thank that person for helping me improve my golf game as I went from a 28 handicap to a 15, amazing what you can accomplish when you utilize your availible time properly.

    Only having 37 posts over the span of 1/2 a year, I don't think I qualify to even vote, but I'd have to choose Southie. Also, this is completely off-topic, but where the heck is Softlaw? I haven't seen him since... Ellsbury left, so I assume that he went to a New York forum to badger them about "Bellsbury".

    Softlaw makes cameo appearances under a different user name from time to time. His writing style is easily recognized by the regulars here.

    I am not going to vote either. There are too many worthy candidates.

    I agree it's a team effort. I have also enjoyed reading the posts of all those nominated who brought lots of knoweldge, strong opinions and generally avoided nasty personal feuds. Thanks to all.

    Re: Poster of the Year Award

    That's a pretty motley crew of posters. These things need criteria. Does getting it right mean anything? How much does insight and intelligence count? Some people here are actually fans of trolls and would vote for them. Some people have multiple identities promoting themselves. One bozo has a thread here solely to garner pity for himself ( as an alternate identity ) as "worst poster of the year" potentially and we are supposed to line up to make him feel better?

    Honestly, this forum is a microcosm of society and as with our country's political processes, the public is incredibly misinformed. I don't find the democratic process particularly insightful or effective at choosing it's "leaders" on this forum. It's like a high school class voting the guy they like as class president instead of the guy who actually gives a darn and would do something both contructive and positive. The capable, intelligent and informed guy gets near zero votes and the guy who doesn't even show up to the student senate meetings gets elected. Look at the work Moon gives this forum, not to mention the insight and level of detail. He blows eveyone else on that list away. It's not even a contest.

    To get chosen by your peers for excellence would mean something. But it ends up in a process like this. Zero voting criteria. Little regard for excellence. 

    Yet another cluster you know what.

    I nominate every poster on here who took time to post and get involved in this forum. Without all of us this site would be useless . So why pick and choose who should be . Like the sox last year this is a team effort not about this poster or that poster. To all who posted on here the award goes to everyone for another great year .

    [/QUOTE]

    Agreed!  Everyone must get a trophy.....  My self-esteem just can't handle this.  ;)

    [/QUOTE]

    Ditto, there are a lot of great posters here who should all get credit for making the forum worth coming back to.  Trying to single out three or four does all the others a misjustice.  Anyone who can see both sides of a debate while bringing solid facts to the table to back up their statements through an honest and friendly discussion are equal in my book.

    In response to youkillus' comment:


    No, everyone should not get a trophy, and if you agree with that, well, you have something in common with Bill and Dad. As for the slate of nominees, all fine candidates, I'm sure. Let me take Moon off the list, he's more than qualified, and knows more about the Sox than I do, certainly, and he's more dedicated than I am too, but, his obsession with Softlaw being wrong is, I'm afraid a character flaw that blocks his path to the award. See, the thing is, we all know Softflaw is wrong, so enough. HFX, good poster, probably a great poster, but his posts are so vanilla,( to me) I can't remember one. Beantowne, good stuff, cheap. Notin, on point, and funny, and that's worth a lot in my book, but sometimes cruel. He's the smartest guy in the room, and will make sure you know it. So that leaves JoeBreidy, yes it does, so what's wrong with having a guy that's smart, funny, and realistic? Nothing!  Plus, I think he challenged GeoRom to put up or shut up, and he won that too. Virginia goes for Breidy! 

    P.S. I'd put Hugh and Southpaw on the slate if I could.



    See your not a team guy... So we trade Youkillus to Yankee forum and if you don't like it ? Try the Japan forum..... Enjoy your New Year!! ...LoL......

    In response to dgalehouse's comment:

    I nominate Ice-Cream for poster of the year. It is time for a change from the usual suspects. Ice -Cream is a loyal Sox fan, is always pleasant and friendly, avoids controversy and brings his own subtle sense of humor to the forum.  Ice -Cream for poster of the year. 




    You know.....now that you mention it, I agree with you completely. 



    Ice Cream is a reasonable addition too. Truth is, the addition of nearly all the posters here could be justified. Each poster has good moments and bad, and since no criteria has been developed for who should be poster of the year, I nominate everyone but Conan....oh wait...he was banned. Never mind.



    This a very masturbatory thread but since this seems to be a theme I will also go with Ice Cream.



    You got that right.

    The fact that a few very good posters aren't included, demonstrates what a circle jerk this thread  is.
