Ladies and gents;

This is the one you've been waiting for. You've all bled into these previews. Thank you to everyone who wrote a preview throughout the year - I got a giggle from every one. From the surreal to the downright hilarious, you all put in a great effort.

This year, we had (by popular demand) six top nominations for the UPotY. They are:

Round 1 v GWS - Striker475
Round 3 v North - d33my
Round 8 v Western Bulldogs - Benwah83
Round 12 v Collingwood - Proper Gander
Round 16 v Fremantle - darthsidusfan
Round 19 v Gold Coast - Sir Hugh Percy

How the voting works:

Each mod nominates a 6-5-4-3-2-1 vote order. They can re-allocate votes within that order if they like.

In addition, the board's posters are invited to nominate a 6-5-4-3-2-1. Their votes are collated, and the highest vote-getter gets the 6, second-highest gets the 5, and so on. The board's votes are equivalent to one moderator's votes.

So...let's begin!

Sixth Place - Round 16 v Fremantle - darthsidusfan

A predictor of Hogan's re-signing, this post-apocalyptic time-travelling thriller saw Jack Viney save us all from the clutches of the evil Ross and his terrible defenses. The notable appearance of the Pav-1000 sent shivers down my spine.

Thanks for your posting this year darthsidusfan !

The competition this year genuinely went up a notch - very hard rating you talented buggers this year.

Genuinely lol'd many times on the train to work whilst re-reading them all. :thumbsu:
Excellent. I can't be too s**tfaced yet because I decided to throw you a like and I pulled it off. Did I read that bit above right about the boards votes (I mean THE WHOLE BOARD's vote) are equivalent to just one mod?

Fifth Place - Round 1 - Striker475

Creating the legend of the bandwagon, this piece saw references to the weight of one Clarabel Clarence Clarry Clayton Oliver, slurs about Western Sydney that would make Eddie blush and a marking of the continuance of Biff's encounters with the Grog Squad. The surprise appearance of this UP drew much attention.

Uhh...so...do I thank myself here? This is an odd position to be in.

That's pretty awkward.

But massive thumbs up for really getting the unofficial preview together this year and the bandwagon was inspired.

Awesome effort once again mate.

Cheers for organising and the bandwagon theme was a winner.

Will we have a new theme next year?

Fourth Place - Round 19 v Gold Coast - Sir Hugh Percy

Drawing upon an oft-downloaded incest murder drama, the adventures of the leaders of Melbournos (and the discovery of the finest of steeds, Range Rover Sport) drew many laughs among the collective. Lord Brickhands (may he rest in piece) was a real highlight.

Thank you so much for the creativity Sir Hugh Percy !

Third Place - Round 3 v North - d33my

This journey into the depths - of both Port Phillip and the mind of Malcolm Blight - was oddly surreal and strangely peaceful. Although I do believe that the Jesse Hogan doll somehow floated upstream to AAMI Park.

Thank you for your posting this year d33my!

Just for interests sake this is the way the Posters voted with accumulated points:
1st - d33my - 58
2nd - Proper Gander - 53
3rd - Benwah - 42
4th - Sir Hugh Percy - 36
5th - darthsidusfan - 31
6th - Striker475 - 28
Kind of like winning the popular vote but being messed around by the college vote system.
