    OK SO

    A bunch of us were talking in #premier that it'd be cool to have end of season awards the way most professional sports leagues do. I think it'd be a little too much work to try to poll everyone in the league, and that campaigning and snowball voting would be a little too effective if we had open polls, so voting will probably be restricted to managers or a couple individuals from each team who are well-connected with SPL as a whole. Obviously people aren't going to be allowed to vote for their own team once we actually do this lol bias.

    That said, there's a lot of potential awards we could do, so this topic is for suggesting potential awards we could vote for and discussing the general concept. A few joke nominations are OK but let's try to keep the drama at a dull roar here there's way too much of that in this tournament already.

    Nominate ideas for awards. We probably won't need players nominated for the awards but feel free and point out people you think should win them, I'm sure whoever ends up voting will read the topic.

    Update:

    - Best Managing Team

    Is this also known as best manager?

    - Lady Byng: A player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability

    - reyscarface: the opposite

    I edited it while you were posting but yeah, it's the best manager equivalent, Paul. I wanted to word it in a way that indicated assistant managers count(ie last year alex's contributions would have counted toward my team for that award and evan's this year and the vote would be for the Scooters, rather than just for me), but instead just made it sound really convoluted.

    These are a bit subjective:

    -"Best" pokemon team
    - Most unique pokemon team
    -"Best" battle
    - Best team matchup / Worst team matchup
