We will once again run the Yellow Sash Award in 2020.

As we did in 2019, I'll post the voting form at the conclusion of each match during the season. This year, I hope to post the results much quicker than in previous years :)

I've posted a poll to determine if you'd prefer to keep the 1-2-3-4-5 voting format that we've used in the past or it you'd prefer to mark each player out of 10.

A check of the votes so far show a unanimous vote for scoring from 0 to 10. If that continues until the end of the voting period, we'll need to define what to look for when voting.

To start things off, how about:
  • 0 - The player played a very ordinary game - hardly got a touch.
  • 1 – A very poor game. The player had no effect on the outcome of the match.
  • 2 – A poor game. The player had little or no effect on the outcome of the match.
  • 3 - The player generally had no effect on the outcome of the match.
  • 4 - A below-average game. Not a consistent enough effort.
  • 5 – An average game. Contributed to the team effort and held their own.
  • 6 - A better than average game.
  • 7 - Showed some good patches but wasn't consistent over 4 quarters.
  • 8 - Played a good game. The player had some effect on the outcome of the match.
  • 9 – An above-average game. Dominated for most of the match.
  • 10 – An outstanding game. Was clearly the best player on the ground from either team.

Can someone improve on the definition for each of scoring levels?

Do the definitions matter? It’s simply a scale that people like to use

I like the sharper definitions.
Perhaps Injured during the game can be factored in too.

I guess that it largely depends on when the injury occurs - e.g. first 5 minutes like Round 1 last year with Rance or during the 3rd or last quarter.

As you'll notice on the Round 1 voting form, I've gone with the 0 to 10 option.

I've created a text box next to each player's name in preference to having 11 boxes to choose from. I think that it looks a bit nicer. The text box will only accept integers between 0 and 10 so anything else will produce an error message.

Who will be the first player to score a unanimous 10?
