Sixth Annual Doomie Awards Poll

I hope that everyone is having a great Super Bowl weekend.  After getting through a busy January, the Doomies are taking place a little later than previous years but we will hold them again to measure the best and worst of the wrestling world.  Ballot information is included after the jump.

We will be debuting some new categories this year per people’s requests from last year.  These will include votes for best/worst commentator, a new category for best Blog column that is not written by Scott (although Scott’s columns are still eligible for Column of the Year), and a renaming of the “Poster of the Year” category to “Commenter of the Year” because there was confusion over the last few years about whether the former referred to people who post columns here.  Voting information is included after a brief history of the awards:

For each category, identify and number THREE choices, with your first being what you most want to see win and third being your third-best choice.  The way awards will be determined is that the ranking of each choice will have a point value.  A first place vote will count for 5 points, a second place vote for 3 points, and a third place vote for 1 point.  The recipient of the most points will win the award.  When voting please include the heading of the category you are voting for and then put 1-(Insert choice), 2-(Insert choice), etc.  Note that you do not have to include three choices for each category if you do not want to but it is encouraged.  You also do not have to vote for every category.

E-mail your votes to me at [email protected] (or you can post your votes as a post below).  I will confirm that I have received your vote via a return e-mail within 24 hours of you sending it (or post).  The deadline for voting will be midnight next Saturday (February 8).  I will post the winners late Tuesday evening on February 11 (probably around 10 p.m. EST or so), with a link to a Heisman-style spreadsheet letting people see what received votes for each category.
