Welcome to the 1st Annual TSG Awards: Madden Edition Nomination Ceremony, now that’s a mouthful, especially with these tusks. Tomorrow night we will crown the winners of the first ever awards for our Madden Franchise, this year there are only 4 awards, hopefully we will expand this as seasons, leagues & years go on. Feel free below to comment on who you think should have been nominated, if you were snubbed or have suggestions for future categories. Since we ended so abruptly due to time constraints, the main prize the “PEYTON MANNING: FRANCHISE MVP AWARD” isn’t as lucrative as it will be in the future. Other than winning Super Bowl’s this will be the award to strive for in the future & will carry more weight going into future leagues & franchises along with a bigger prize attached to it. Currently each award winner will receive 1600 Microsoft Points. Below are the nominees for each award and a few things about that nominee and how they qualify for the award, once again feel free to comment below. Without further ado:
THE DREW BREES
“MOST IMPROVED PLAYER AWARD”
This award is given to the player that has shown the most improvement from the beginning to the end of the franchise, whether it’s getting more competitive, improved game play style, better attitude, overall improvement in all league aspects. And the nominees are:
Rio the king638 (shown left) From his rocky beginnings to his meteoric rise to playoff contender, Rio the king638 is the epitome of what this award is about. From being someone who was called a pushover, easy win, cheeser, cheater, quitter & all around detriment to a franchise has turned around to being one of the most dedicated & loyal members we have. He has made the playoffs for 2 straight seasons, albeit in a rather weak NFC North, & has become one of the members we can rely on anytime we needed someone to substitute.
KornNickel (shown right) His game-play was never an issue, he just couldn’t win. Other than his tardiness on games and tough time scheduling & playing some league games, Korn has always been a model player & bled TSG. With hard work and dedication, the self-proclaimed “King Korn” has risen from an easy win & no contest to someone who can beat you (if you can find him LOL) with his powerful run game with 2 playoff appearances under his belt.
THE ORLANDO PACE
“UNSUNG HERO AWARD”
This award is given to the player that has helped the franchise in many ways & you probably don’t even know it. From helping us as substitutes, volunteering to help in certain situations & giving up their time to help the league keep running. And the nominees are:
cowboys2k9 (shown left) has been a lifer for us over here at TSG back to when Jersey was part of MSPL & I was running MonkeyBowl 2k10. Anytime he was asked to sub or help, he would do it without hesitation. If ever there was an issue or problem he would handle it promptly without any fuss or problem, he is always willing to do what is best for the league. The only issue with cowboys was his occasional problem getting a game in, but usually was due to his college classes and is understandable.
Capt Save A OHH (shown right) has been around for ever, being in our leagues at various times & being in our TSG league from the beginning. Other than resigning his Free Agents (lol) I have never heard one negative thing about Capt, he always plays his games, messages his opponents & helps us with substitutions at the drop of a hat. Due to him rarely being in parties with many of the TSG members & his dedication to the league, he is the definition of an UNSUNG HERO.
THE TOM BRADY
“SPORTSMAN OF THE YEAR AWARD”
This award is given to the player that most represents what TSG is all about. Playing sim, playing hard, playing fair, being respectful, always playing your games, never has to be messaged or penalized. This member is what every TSG member should try to be like. This person also is willing to help out whenever possible & very active in parties & trades. And the nominees are:
Capt Save A OHH (shown left) has been around for ever, being in our leagues at various times & being in our TSG league from the beginning. Other than resigning his Free Agents (lol) I have never heard one negative thing about Capt, he always plays his games, messages his opponents & helps us with substitutions at the drop of a hat. Although active in trades & the league, he rarely is in parties with many of the TSG members, this could be the only factor separating him from this honor.
Cincy life (shown right) is a TSG original, starting with us back in the Monkey Bowl & MSPL days, Cincy has been one of the most dedicated members any league could ever have. He is active in trade discussions, helps when needed, brings many people together in many ways. You never have to question if his game will be played. Cincy is the very definition of what TSG is all about & look forward too many more years of him with us. He has helped dissolve personal issues, subbed & represented TSG greatly in many other franchises & leagues.
THE PEYTON MANNING
This award is given to the player that just couldn’t be beat. Whether it was winning Super Bowls, making the playoffs, dominating their division or even trying to go undefeated. This person no matter whether you love them or hate them, dominated the headlines & was tough to beat no matter who was on the field on either side. And the nominees are:
Chuunin Ninja (shown left) appeared in Super Bowl 1 & 2 against his opponent & fellow nominee MR 463. Losing the first match-up but coming back to win the second Super Bowl. Ninja has always been a dominate TSG member winning 3 consecutive Super Bowls on Madden 10 as part of the MSPL franchise. He was always in the playoff hunt in a very tough AFC & won many division titles in the tightly contested AFC South.
MR 463 (shown top right) appeared in the first 2 Super Bowl’s against his opponent & fellow nominee Chuunin Ninja. Beating Ninja in the first contest, 463 seemed primed for back to back Super Bowls but just fell short. Even then there seemed
to be a bright future for that team but that future quickly diminished with the emergence of Deathpool & Tonic, they made it so a dynasty was never born. He may not of dominated past season 2, but those first 2 seasons the NFC was his.
Julius Jackson (shown bottom right) the winner of the last 3 Super Bowls & the only repeat champion of a TSG member since Ninja did it in MSPL. He didn’t win his championships without controversy or even without A LOT of trash talk. Love him or hate him (I think the majority hate him lol), you have to give the devil his due, with only 4 losses since entering TSG at the end of Season 3, he was a hurricane that tore through TSG, but was his reign long enough to earn him these honors?
