    Is Witherden, with 20 votes in about 10 games the best effort from a first year player since Geoff Southby in 1970?

    I thought we just used Mr Ripper's memory for anything useless like that.

    Witherden getting so many more votes than Mayes shows the flaw in not giving everybody votes like in the B&Fs.

    Either that, or Witherden had a better season than Mayes. ;-)

    I don't know it's really a flaw, just a different measure. If we had, say, been voting top 10s, Mayes would have made a lot of them. A substantial majority of them I suspect. He definitely played his role. Witherden was more spectacular but played fewer.

    Voting top 10s would probably make us more accurate at predicting the M-M medal order, but is that the goal?

    Goal would be to judge the best player of the year but a more accurate top 10 would be nice too.
