Topic: YODA CREW AWARDS “2018”

Well, everybody, it’s been another great season of fantasy tennis for the Yoda Crew.

It’s almost time to announce the Yoda Crew trophy winners and award winners for the 2018 season, however, we need a group consensus on three things.....

Most Improved Player??.... Tenedab, Marco or Murreee
Best Newcomer??....Marco or Murreee
Best 2018 Performance is TennisElbow, we just have to decide whether it’s Jamie’s GSFT overall RG combined win or his WTA Madrid bracket win on TDC.

My vote for Most Improved is tenedab (UFTR No.1) and Marco for Best Newcomer (Guru)

Put your vote and comments and thoughts below, I will post the Yoda Crew Awards later in the week. smile


Well, here they are Yoda Crew members, our champions and award winners for 2018......

Re: YODA CREW AWARDS “2018”

My votes:
Tenedab for most improved player
Marco for best newcomer
Jamie's GSFT overall win at RG 18

2016: Rey Saber, Lord Vader, Supreme Jedi, Yoda Crew player of the year
2014: Lord Vader, King Droid, Naboo Champion, Yoda Crew player of the year
2013: Yoda Cup Wimbledon champion, Yoda Cup Guru Runner-up
2012: Yoda Cup Wimbledon champion

Re: YODA CREW AWARDS “2018”

Most improved player I would actually go with Marcus/HTS - two 2nd placed finishes in Obi Wan and Vader - I would call it a breakout year for him
Best newcomer - don't think it's possible to pick between Marco & Murreee, they each bagged a major title, I would favour a joint win.
Performance - Hooray for me - the RG win feels bigger

2018 Roland Garros Yoda Cup
2017 Obi Wan Master, Wimbledon Yoda Cup, Year End #2, Yoda Crew Player of the Year
2016 Obi Wan Master, Year End #2
2015 Lord Vader, Roland Garros Yoda Cup 2013 Winner of Fantasy Tennis Tour

Re: YODA CREW AWARDS “2018”

I will cast my vote to HTS for most improved... But since I don't know the past history would concede mt vote to the group...

I must challenge the votes for Marco as best newcomer (rookie)... Marco did GREAT in the 4 majors and won Guru- but I Won Vader (year long competition) and I placed 3rd in Guru...

I also won 7 ATP Team Events 5 ATP Brackets 4 WTA Team events and 3 WTA Brackets - Placed #1 Overall TDC ATP Grand Slam Team... #3 Overall TDC ATP 500...

Is this award just about GSFT or does the TDC count as well....

I will vote for Murreee for best newcomer... And invite Marco to join TDC next year...

PS: Congrats to BHP for finishing #4 in Vader (Great Comeback)...!!!

2018 Lord Vader
2018 Yoda Crew Best Newcomer

Re: YODA CREW AWARDS “2018”

Hard to argue with this Murreee. Marco absolutely dominated the Yoda Cup and impressed people. But you have a wider resume and competed with us in all comps.

My feeling is you both had standout seasons for your first full seasons, hence my vote for a joint award - unusual, but fair.

2018 Roland Garros Yoda Cup
2017 Obi Wan Master, Wimbledon Yoda Cup, Year End #2, Yoda Crew Player of the Year
2016 Obi Wan Master, Year End #2
2015 Lord Vader, Roland Garros Yoda Cup 2013 Winner of Fantasy Tennis Tour

Re: YODA CREW AWARDS “2018”

Thanks TE...

I did win Vader and place third in Guru... So i placed in two major Yoda competitions

Marco won Guru (4 tournaments) but did not even compete in Vader (66 tournaments)... so he only placed in one major Yoda competition...

Plus I only lost Guru to Marco by 320 points and only 8 points out of second...

I won Vader by 1950 points over second and 2565 points over third (66 total tournaments) And Marco didn't compete...

So in 4 tournaments Marco and I both competed for the title and Marco won a by a very close margin... I competed in 62 additional tournaments and Won the overall title...

Whatever the league decides I will accept but is this about points or popularity..???

2018 Lord Vader
2018 Yoda Crew Best Newcomer

Re: YODA CREW AWARDS “2018”

Guru is the most prestigious title pf the Yoda crew. Yoda Cups are the pillars of the group. And 320 points is in fact quite a lot. Matco became #1 in skywalker after only 4 tournaments, which is close to impossible.

You did great in Yoda and amazing in Vader. I just think Marco's achievement deserves the newcomer award. But that is only my opinion, only one vote.

2016: Rey Saber, Lord Vader, Supreme Jedi, Yoda Crew player of the year
2014: Lord Vader, King Droid, Naboo Champion, Yoda Crew player of the year
2013: Yoda Cup Wimbledon champion, Yoda Cup Guru Runner-up
2012: Yoda Cup Wimbledon champion

Re: YODA CREW AWARDS “2018”

This is awkward! I agree with Arnie regarding the prestigious and historical supremacy of the Guru win:- it requires team picking skill AND match prediction skill AND an informed knowledge of the potential of lower ranked players as well as measured risk taking. It also embraces 4 of these challenging 2 week tests. For that reason, had Marco also played TDC throughout the year, we might not be having this discussion. As a relative newcomer myself this vote for Marco reflects my grasp of the consensus in the group about the relative weight of the different competitions. I do acknowledge though that Murree has had a superb first full year on TDC and I am in awe of his Vader win and had Marco not participated then Murree would be the unquestionable choice.
So, no, it’s not about personalities but it does raise questions re the level of participation needed to qualify for the award and about the extent of the consensus regarding  the relative weight of Guru v other achievements.
Hats off to both!!

Re: YODA CREW AWARDS “2018”

I agree Marco had the most prestigious accomplishment -and he has been rewarded with the most prestigious award “Yoda guru”... and I have been awarded with “lord Vader” ... so it’s not about those awards... it’s about best newcomer to the yoda crew and the Hoya crew competes for 66 tournaments not just 4...

so I feel this award should go to the newcomer who embraced the full completion of the yoda crew..!!!

2018 Lord Vader
2018 Yoda Crew Best Newcomer

Re: YODA CREW AWARDS “2018”

Some good discussion here I see, Murreee has made some very valid points too.

Jamie's choice of a joint win for Marco and Murreee in the Best Newcomer category isn't a silly one I think, it's not often that a Best Newcomer would be the Guru though eh, however with Murreee doing well in Yoda and in Vader he is certainly worth the award too, joint winners is starting to grow on me I feel.

Jamie's RG GSFT overall win has got the Performance Of The Year, thanks for the input there Jamie. smile

My vote for the remaining two awards is now going with.....
Most Improved - Tenedab
Best Newcomer - Marco/Murreee
