    I am going to collect and propose some categories for the "Peoples Choice Awards" and I look forward to inputs and suggestions from all you manic and obsessed BCers out there! :D:D

    Please note: Some are serious, and some are just for fun. But none of the categories are created to run down any player, or association, or country. I just think I should make that clear. :D:rolleyes:

    Here are the categories I have come up with so far. Please add or comment. We can then ask Mods to set up the Polls for each category. :)

    We need to have a deadline, and I propose January 10, 2011. Is that OK?

    Yeah, it qualifies if it needs repairs/replacement. Nowadays it's cheaper to replace than to repair!!! :D

    One more vote for HHB/MJ as defective partnership from me. Or maybe mismatch? And CWC/CYC also in WD.

    I would like to propose Ko Sung Hyun/Yoo Yeon Seong as partnership of the year in MD. They have only been paired up this year(Ko Sung Hyun replacing Cho Gun Woo) and they have won 2 SS titles (Swiss Open, Hong Kong Open) They have also made a name for themselves as an MD to fear and they have always beaten KKK/TBH. Other big names that have fallen to them are JJS/LYD and MK/HS.

    Hmmm... but what about CY/FHF? They won some significant titles this year as well. And don't forget Boe/Mogensen. Maybe KSH/YYS could be proposed as Shooting Stars of the Year? Just like Ratchanok was proposed for WS...

    Okay, I think I got the wrong meaning for Partnership of the Year, I thought it should be a newly paired partnership or something. :) Sure, shooting stars are totally fine with me.

    I would prefer ZN/ZYL as Shooting Stars of the Year as they have only paired up last year. Shooting stars/Partnership of the Year seems pretty similar to me. O.O

    Don't agree with ZB/MJ as Sad nor Mismatch as they only played in one(?) tournament this year which is the WC and they won. LSM/CYC definitely not shooting stars, TJM/TQ would fit it more than LSM/CYC. :)

    MS
    Player of the Year - Lee Chong Wei
    Goofball - Let's go along with Tago
    Resurgent - Lee Hyun-il?
    Cyborg - Chen Jin
    Shooting star - Wang Zhengming
    Saddest story - Don't know. Go along with SDK.
    Handsome - Don't know. Girls would be better to decide. For me, maybe Boonsak/Lin Dan?
    Popular - Lin Dan
