So seeing as the team nominees will soon be selected for the year end league awards here are my predictions on who our finalists will / should be . So have a look and see if you agree with me or if not then tell me who you would select instead .
Most Outstanding Player : I’m thinking a toss up between either Tim White or James Butler.
Most Outstanding Canadian : Stavros Katsantonis
Most Outstanding Specials : Carthell Flowers-Lloyd
Thanks Iceman . It’s a toughee right now between White and Butler for MOP at the moment . They are IMO virtually neck and neck for the nomination and I would think it will comedown to how each of them performs in these last 5 regular season games . Now with saying all that , you did ask me to make a definitive pick so I will lean towards Butler to get the final nomination .
As for Simmy getting the Defensive honours ? I would personally LOVE to see it . . When one stops to think about it we really haven’t had only one player stand out on our defense this year . It seems like every game there is a different player or players who have taken turns stepping up to the plate .
How could you possibly have CVZ as your top Canadian but not as your top O-Lineman ? . Fontana I grant you was a noble and worthy pick but come on man over CVZ ? Also I think that in your Specials and Rookie category the nomination should actually read “Most Outstanding Specials and Rookies on the Suspended List Category”
Finally in the Most Improved Player category it should read as “Most Improved Player that Actually Never Really Played Category”
I agree . The problem is that the majority of reporters that get to vote on these awards only look at who is catching the punt or kick and not on who is doing the tackling . I do agree though that McCallister is also a worthy nomination for that category .
Hopefully CF-L gets rewarded with a year end selection to the Eastern and league All-Star team for his outstanding accomplishments and contributions this season in leading the league by a wide margin in STT .
MOSTP award was established to reward returners. Full stop. If there isn’t an exceptional one of or even an average one only then do they look at K/P. A great, consistent downfield tackler is never going to win it.
