Sweet FA Rising Star - S25


The criterion for this award is a combination of on field and off field performance but does favour on field stats. Each week the best rookie will be awarded the weekly Rising Star award. At the end of the season one star will shine brightest and receive the coveted Rising Star medal. It looks a really strong group of rookies this season, but who will be the stand out?

The Rising Star is a guide to how our rookies are going throughout the season with the ultimate rookie award being the EKA which is decided on Mobbenfuhrer Medal night.

I thought xenxen was taking over, I can give you an updated logo
It's a bit challenging if you're posting off a phone so I took over and will do it as a sole rookie focus and hopefully add some more bells and whistles.

Serious question.

Who decides the weekly winners, then ultimately the winner

Panel, captains, mods, Admin or yourself?

If the answer is you, then I would just love to add that this is possibly the best thread I have read since coming to the SFA.

Keep up the great work.

last season when I did it, it was just me but I pretended to use some formula + a panel of judges that were actually in a group convo but were completely inactive after about the third week.

I'll scan the match threads each week and announce weekly winner. My initial thought is to ask the captains and their LG to vote on the ultimate winner (not allowed to vote for their own player).

With S25 being a celebration of the first 25 years, I plan on interviewing some past winners for their thoughts as well as some rookies as the season progresses. The Heritage games are great start to what should be a cracking season.

I made such a good algorithm and it's all gone to waste. :(

I'd expect some additions to the 24 rookies listed above. Let me know if your team has any additions to the list.

Correction here Dingster. Mt Buller do have a rookie this year and it's a cracker. Please amend the list for the Dee's. Announcing a fine young rookie, give it up for sausageroll. Clearly an early favourite who will surely bring home the choccies this season.
