AFL has the Brownlow Medal.
SANFL has the Magery Medal.
ABL Central has the Halls / Woolacott Medal.
Even Australian TV has the Logies.

Maybe, it's time for HOOP.COM.AU to have an awards ceremony!

Awards could be given to the ALL-STAR 5 (top 5 posters), ROOKIE OF THE YEAR (Best new poster), MOST WANTED (Most Wanted posters), MOST INAPPROPRIATE (person who received the most backlash), etc.

although almost half of Bo Hamburger/Satish Dogra's posts would be up for selection, my nomination for funniest post is...

re: BODY SUITS.... Hot or not...? (#42806)
I love wearing nothing more than bathers to play in. I especially love it when every step i take rides that lycra further and further up my legs until i choke.
I love that I can't eat pasta or anythign milky for fear of the dreaded bodysuit-bloat. I love going to the toilet during half time and exhausting myself trying to get that sweaty, clingy material back on reasonably. I love the search for my g-string in my crack after the game. I love sucking my guts in all game and worrying more about how my arse looks than how I'm playing. I love that in those cold winter games everyone can always see my headlights.

So in short, Bodysuits are HOT.

(Mod: Nice. Still laughing.)

Dr D,

I appreciate your sentiments but feel you vastly overrate me: I'd be happy with a strike rate of something like 1 in 10, or basically whatever John Starks shot in that Game 7 of the Knicks-Rockets finals whenever that was. :)

The more important question here is: what could these awards themselves be called?

I think the answer is easy: the Isaacs. "...and the Isaac for Funniest Post goes to..."

Perhaps we should give them honorary names, similar to the AFL, where the Best and Fairest is the Brownlow, the most goals in the season is the coleman...


"The Bizzy, for most posts goes to Dr Bullshit"


"The Isaac, for the most sensible and reasonable post goes to EC"


"The Manute Bol, for the Token Minority poster goes to Smooth Butter..."

I thought 1000 posts would be a Hall of Shame or get nominated for the Isaac for "Poster who Most needs a Life"

I'd have to say it's a tie between THE "Not being able to mention names" THREAD and THE "Under 10s" THREAD

(I think everybody knows which threads I am referring to. These two got a lot of ppl talking)

Most controversial threads are any of the threads containing the words 'BASA' and 'junior competition' in the same sentence.

I want to see the following awards:

'Most random spray at a poster who is taken out of context or misquoted'

'Moest inpreSsingly baddest usage of teh EnGlish LaNguaGe' and

'Most useless post complaining about the 'Moest inpreSsingly baddest usage of teh EnGlish LaNguaGe' of another poster'

Or just shows that they tend to use one topic for their entire season rather than split it up into individual games.

If the whole ABL season was discussed in one thread, I think we'd have had a winner...

I nominate the thread 'False allegations laid to rest' (In_the_know 06/09/05) for the following awards:

Most obtuse post;

Post with the most confused readers; and

Best use of a cliche involving sheep.

Most controversial thread would have to go to the South Adelaide thread that was removed due to the threat of legal action

Although I love the idea of the awards being called "THE ISAACS", surely there will have to be an award for biggest stuff-up on this post. It can be called "THE OC" in relation to another award stuff-up... The Woolacott going to OCSAR, instead of Oscar!

This guy just bumped a 15 year old thread. How do you even find that?

Just by searching long time posters you can usually click through and many older threads will appear. Or use search function if you're after a particular thread.
