Screw the FH awards, WVDolphan for President.
I'm a VP member here but almost never post there, or even venture into the forum. That might be a poor decision but it was spurred by my early visits to the place, after I apparently was voted in. One poster after another in there was having a jolly time deriding this forum, and specific members. The popular term for this forum was, "The Zoo," as in...I just visited The Zoo and now I need to get back here and take a needed bath. That type of snobby thing. To be fair, I don't know if that attitude persists but it was enough to turn me off immediately. It reminded me of Las Vegas sportsbooks when a big bettor is approached by an everyday guy, asking for a bit of advice, and the whale acts as if he's been wronged if they approach within 10 feet of him. I always have more fun nearby the $5 parlay crowd and that holds true here.
I expected to participate in the voting process here for the first time this year but decided against it. The draft forum, for example, was simply too tough to call. Other forums I had no idea. Some categories it appeared were almost written for certain posters to win, while other logical categories were absent.
Voting at this time of the year probably lends itself to lower numbers. Hold it in the heart of the season and I'm sure the participation would be markedly improved.

Thanks to brother Like2God for the great sig!
I would greatly appreciate it if members truly understood what VIP is about rather than just assuming. It is these members, the great donators, and Matt the owner that help keep this site open for all to enjoy. What would you do and where would go if the site bleed a loss so bad that it had to close up for good? Please give this some thought, rather than just assuming this site will be open no matter what. Yes the staff is all volunteer and we receive no payment for our time.
Maybe the award season should align to the football season. I'd assume viewership is down significantly versus September.
