We continue the nomination process for the 2012 Matty Awards today, with three more categories up for consideration. If you don't know, the Matty's are named after the site's founder, Matty I, and are used as a way for you to recognize members of the site who keep you coming back every day.
All you have to do is list the award, and the person (or people) you feel should be in consideration for that award. And, since there were no Matty awards last year, previous winners will be allowed to win the award this year.
Remember - this is not the vote. This is the nomination.
As always NO NOMINATING YOURSELF AND NO CAMPAIGNING ANYWHERE ON THE SITE!!!!
- The Jeff Ireland Punching Bag Award – given to the blogger who tends to be everybody else’s punching bag.
- The Yermiah Bell SLAP of the Year Award - given to the blogger with the best smackdown of an opposing blogger.
- The Stephen Ross Infatuation of the Week Award - given to the blogger who started the most ridiculous and hilarious player bandwagon. Bonus Points for a creative nickname.
