    G'day,

    It's October - must be time for the annual Scarf Awards. Have a shave, rent a suit and send the WAG off to the top floor of Westfield to buy a low cut dress.

    But first, we need some categories and nominations. To start the ball rolling, I think these might be good:

    Best Avatar
    - I nominate Moses (all the animated gifs), Gagger (Kev's nose), barbarian (Waugh/Croft), Riddler (Riddler plays for the Highlanders), naza (homoerotic Wallabies), fatpop (fp's fat guys)

    Funniest Poster
    - I nominate cyclopath, naza, barbarian (just for the Cam Shepherd crack!)

    Yellow Scarf of Friendship for Best Foreign Poster
    - I nominate PaarlBok, Virgil, Thomond78, RedBeard, Scorz, Mainlander

    Lee Grant Award for Most Knowledgable Poster
    - I nominate Lee Grant, fatprop, (no, you can't nominate yourself, naz), Cutter, rugbywhisperer

    Most "Passionate" Supporter
    - I nominate naza, biffo, Spook, waratahjesus

    Clubman of the Year
    - I nominate NTA, Aussie D, boarman

    Gold Scarf for Poster of the Year
    - I nominate Gagger, Moses, Noddy

    This year we'll also have the chance to vote on best blogger, top blog post, and so on. I think Gagger will be along in a moment to explain.

    You can post in this thread with categories and nominations, or send me a PM for more *ahem* sensitive nominations.

    Re: Scarf Awards - 2009 - nominations please

    Kofi Annan award for best peacemaking - Scarfman
    Other than that, pretty much agree with categories.

    Oh yeah, the Robbie Deans award should be for the most unintelligible poster (or most use of psychobabble), or maybe a seaparate Dingo award for such?

    The Ray Charles Award for blindly supporting a favourite player?
