#NRL 2014: Round 1 #NRLTweetPOTY Votes

Round 1 POTY Votes and Tipping Results

2014 National Rugby League Premiership

By W D Nicolson - March 11, 2014

The new season is upon us and The @NRLTweet Player of the Year Awards are back with weekly collated Votes here on www.wdnicolson.com and real-time Voting on Twitter.

The plan for 2014 is to post the Leaderboard every month (every 4 rounds) to keep things a little interesting week to week and the Voting Panel for this season is:

| V Parmar @vinnyparmar |
| J Gemmell @godofcheeseau |
| T Schroder @troy_79 |
| J Davies @DragonPunk12 |
| M McLucas @Jebadude |
| N Wilbow @parramatters |
| G Delaney @AussieGreg84 |
| B Hoese @GunnerMcDagget |
| M Vickers @MercurialMattyV |
| M Perry @Chandler_BANG |
| D Chapman @Mr_DC11 |
| M Duncan @MrPeninsula |
| W Nicolson @NRLTweet |

And we are still recruiting during the early Rounds of 2014 - so if you are interested in being part of The @NRLTweet Player of the Year Awards please Email Warrick Nicolson here.
Our Round 1 Tips didn't quite go to plan... Full Breakdown below the #NRLTweetPOTY Votes

The voting is broken down into 2 Voters per game and they vote 4-2-1s for the 3 best players on the field. Ideally each voter goes into each game with no bias towards either team - though voters do get to vote on games involving their own teams but are watched very closely in case they get a little too excited!

But that's what makes our system work - 2 voters means you are accountable to the other voter. While it is clearly possible for voters to see games totally differently, if a voter goes for a favourite who did not have a particularly good game - it is painfully obvious and over the years we've been able to weed out voters who may have operated this way in the past - meaning we have as best as possible - a limited-bias factor in our voting.

Votes are put up on Twitter either immediately following the live game or by the next morning - so feel free to engage our voters and ask them to elaborate on why they voted as they did - they'll be happy to do it as 140 characters is only enough to literally give out votes and include game hashtags and our #NRLTweetPOTY hashtag.

So without any more delay - below are the Votes from Round 1.

Our Round 1 Tipping Results follow the Votes.

HEADS UP: We do have an NRL Tipping Comp for listeners of NOT The Footy Show - go here for the details. Hopefully we have a show up again sooner rather than later.
