Saturday: And Then There Were Two

The Final Vote for the 2015 Concept of the Year will be between...



JUSTIN C. and RYAN C.


In a match-up that equals that of Brady vs Manning or Gretzky vs Lemieux, Justin defeated his arch nemesis Dylan A.

Full Results
Justin C. (COL v DET) - 31
Dylan A. (FLINT) - 26

Ryan C's Sabres concept took out Tristan's Caps set to move on to the Final.

Full Results
Ryan C. (BUF) - 32
Tristan P. (WSH) - 25


And now there are two. Justin will be looking for his 3rd COTY win in the last 4 years and Ryan makes his first Final appearance in his first full year on the blog! All of the COTY votes for the past 4 years have been without a clear cut winner from the start. This year continues with that trend. Who will take home the 2015 COTY championship plaque? It's up to you guys now. The COTY Final is in the grey poll on the side of the page. You can see Justin's and Ryan's concepts by clicking the link in the poll or by going to the COTY 2015 tab. If you are signed into a Google account you can vote until Friday at 11:59pm Eastern. Go and vote!

The winner of the COTW vote for January 17-23 was Taylor R. Glen's cat put in a good showing in this fight (as all cats do) but there was just too much skill on the other side for that cat to handle.

Taylor R. (TB) - 37
Glen W. (CAT) - 15

 
The new COTW nominees have been listed on the side of the page in the black poll. As is becoming the norm, many concepts were nominated and thus the concepts that were thirded or more move into the vote.

Those with a Google account have until Friday at 11:59pm Eastern to place their vote. You can see the nominated concepts by clicking the link in the poll or by going to the CONCEPT OF THE WEEK tab.

If you have already taken a look at the COTW noms you should be able to figure out who won the 2016 All-Star ReDesign. Matt M!

Now I can join the long list of people who put a lot of effort into a concept thinking it can win a competition only to lose to Matt and in the process realize how far ahead he is of you. Thanks Matt! Matt's entry moves into the COTW vote...as you already know.

A new competition will start next week. We'll let the COTY Final vote get all of the attention this week. If you feel like adding your opinion as to what the next competition should be that would be great!

Jeez that's two competitions in 2016 and two second places for me. Oh well maybe next week. Congrats Matt!

Don't think the winning ASG concept would work in reality as they are all so similar and hard to spot which team is which... But congrats anyway

Wasn't my Preds fauxback concept from Wednesday seconded and "thirded?"

Justin Cox is officially dead to me. Rest in Pieces ex-friend.

What template is Matt using? That looks fantastic!I also will be sending in a few more designs shortly.

Ryan said...

@Lucas: No. You had two concepts posted that day and unfortunately two people nominated you without mentioning which concept. I can't count those.

I was wondering something. I was not able to be online that much last week so i couldnt check the COTW nominees. I was wondering aomething,I created the Wichita State Shockers concept and it was nominated, 2nd and 3rd. Yet it wasnt in the COTW vote that was listed on Saturday. Did I break a rule or something I am just wondering what was the reason and if I had then i can make sure i do not make the same mistake again. Chris W.
