    Thank you for opening up this thread. I like all of these nominations. But, I will suggest to add more nominations. Something like Smash of the Year, Backhand Shot of the Year, etc.

    Lol, so much biases for Zhang Nan in the best male player award. Well, nothing wrong for that.

    How dare you don't nominate me as best minions fans and put yourself as the best minions fans? It's BLASPHEMY! :D:D:D

    Haha well considering how awful his partners had been performing this year, yet he managed to win 2 bronze medals in BAC, 2 bronze in WC, China Open Final and all while both partners were sort of playing against him. And even more for being unbelievably supportive, patience and composed all the time with his partners when any ordinary human being would have probably lost it long long time ago. :D

    In short, Zhang Nan is a God. But, he is not the only one. Try putting God Hendra in the same situation as Zhang Nan and see what happens.

    Any chance to move this thread to "2018 tournaments" section? This thread fits more in that section and also it will attract lots of members here.

    I won't call anyone God lol.
    Well, still Hendra has never been in the same situation with Zhang Nan. His permanent partners had been awesome so far.
    Anyway, that's not what this Award about isn't it? It's for things that have happened this year.

    I take offense at not getting your nomination for 6 & 8-11 as well. I'll argue my point later, when I have time to write up the necessary essay.

    Hey, @j4ckie . Do you have someone to be nominated? I thought you are the objective one. So, your nomination will be a great help.

    Edit : I just checked that @Nine Tailed Fox did nominate the others in the category that you left out. But, I will wait for your argument some day.

    Your member popped up vociferously in the LYD thread recently and ejected '' Underrated Shin Baek much better than OVERRATED LYD in all aspects of the game ''

    I remember you were absolutely furious with Chris and Marcus Langridge bagging Olympic Bronze and I will reveal here, it made me chuckle a bit :p
