Bando SUCKED for the first half of 2010. His incredible increase was fantastic to see, and he really did break out this year more than anyone.

Marvie, however, really did increasse his quality and deserves some major props.

I can make a case for any of the finalists... and I think I will!

Marvie: Marvie has gone through an evolution over the past year on AF where he has experimented with different writing styles, argued with increasing clarity, and generally just upped him game.

Bando: Bando went from some guy who didn't really post much for the first 5 or so months to one of the top contributors on AF. He brought AFW to the forums along with a shit ton of stats and throat punches for all.

Shade: Like it or not, Shade is going to let you know what he thinks about wrestling. You have to admire that Shade sticks to his guns even when it is unpopular. In 2010, Shade was everywhere and was a massive contributor to AF.

G-Sizzle: The Sizzler is one of the newer AFers (as in he didn't come over in the schism) and has been contributing admirably in his short tenure. Hopefully, in 2011, he continues in that manner and wins this award.

I took Bando here, but it could have gone to any of the guys. I just feel that Bando has really come out of his shell in a big way this year.

I know. But since he is not here to promote himself, someone has to do it.

I nominated Marvie, so I may as well vote for him as well. Don't get me wrong, bando had a great year. It's just, I've always thought he was a great poster, so I don't see why he'd be "breaking out" to be honest. Marvie on the other hand started out kind of rough, but has made leaps and bounds to improve his overall posting through out the year, so he gets my vote.

I sort of think Bando had a lot of lurker in him before. Like, he was a member and posted every now and then, but he has really come around and gotten over big time in the last 6 or 7 months.

And that is not to take anything away from Marvie either who helps solidify the very foundation of AF.

I think SHADE is getting overlooked big time here though. It's really a tough call to make.

Well, since PRETTY RICKY didn't make the poll, I'll have to go with my backup choice: MarvelousMe.

Besides, anyone who reveals their uber geeky side with no qualms deserves an award.

Yeah I ended up voting for Marvie. As much as I love Bando and his work, I know very well how hard it is to come in and make your mark on a community. I didn't vote Bando because I've always considered him a great poster, hell he's up for Poster Of The Year and I seriously considered him for that. Marvie joined us, had a HORRIBLE posting style (haiku and all lol), he listened to his critics, stepped his game up and has seriously become a pillar of the community in a very short time.

Happy posting Marv, here's hoping you'll continue to step it up and make a run for poster of the year next year.

I voted Marvie, I always look forward to reading his reviews after shows and just anywhere else he always has something good to contribute.
