It’s Time To Submit Your Nominees For The 2012 Dubsy Awards

For the fourth January in a row, we here at Dubsism will be handing out our coveted awards for various acheivements in the world of sport.  If you are unfamiliar, you can check out the two previous Dubsy awards herehere, and here. But the one thing we are doing differently this year is opening the floor for nominations for you, the blog-reading public who clearly has nothing better to do than read this dreck.

If you have time to read this, you likely have read a lot of other sports stuff, and therefore likely have a better idea of to whom to give this awards than our drunken bunch of keyboard droolers does. You can always check out our previous awards should you have any questions as the reasons for which the awards are given. You can also Google the people for whom the awards are named; both are telling, but most are pretty self-explanatory.

Having said that, here is the Dubsy award nomination ballot. Simply fill in your nominees (be sure to include pertinent facts; links to supporting evidence are always welcome, and depending on the reason for nomination, may be required by the Dubsism legal department), then copy and paste your ballot into an email addressed to dubsism@yahoo.com.

There are very few criteria for submitting a ballot:

  1. One nominee per category per email.
  2. Nominees must come from the world of sport, and they must fit the category in which they are nominated.
  3. You do no need to nominate a winner in each category
  4. Nominees should have a national presence – as much as your local high school coach might be a perfect nominee, if the rest of us never heard of him, it doesn’t do any good. However, we are willing to make exceptions for awesome stories which have links to back them up.

We also will be giving honorable mentions to the best nominees which are pretty damn good, but didn’t win. For those, we will post your name and a link to your blog/webpage if you wish. If you don’t wish, then don’t give it to us…

Let your voice be heard, Dubsists. There’s over to 800,000 of you out there, so let’s really make these awards mean something…we simply cannot let the ESPYs stand as the standard in sports awards. Who gives a shit about what “30 by 30″ movie was the best? Let’s make sure we are giving award for things we care about.

After all, aren’t we as the fans what make sports matter in the first place?

  2. Mine have been submitted and I’m guaranteeing at least three of mine make the final tally, says Sportschump as he throws down the proverbial gauntlet.

      Without giving away any early results, I will say this. There have been a significant number of ballots submitted, and there is one nominee which has shown up on an overwhelming number of said ballots. I won’t disclose category or nominee, but suffice it to say, you will know which one it is when the awards are announced.
