    The red carpet is down, as the celebrity folk from LWOS slowly make there way down through the throng of media assembled to report on the night of nights, the LWOS awards.

    Good evening, im Jon Stamos, and im your compare for tonight :DAs well as seeing highlights of me in Full House, you shall be entertained by an all-star musical lineup. Leading theperformances areJon Bon Jovi, Tool, Billy Joel, Elvis and Pearl Jam.

    Now its been an interesting year on the LWOS boards. Scandals, bitching, backstabbing, crybabies and whingers, we have had it all. Everything from the bizarre to the brilliant. Tonight we are assembled here to congratulate those who have achived, and lament over the less than successful contributions to LWOS over the past year. The year started off in January (as most do), with much hope for the new season. The return of Souths meant a lot for the game.

    But as the year progressed, the LWOS board and its membership base warmed up. Cross board flame wars became the norm. The bluebags forums team was represented in the initial forum 7s, and finished a credible 4th after much argument! Throughout the year, we had many a squabble, many an intruder and many a top poster who just wanted to say their piece. The chat room remained busy throughout the year and had many visitors as well as highlights.

    But enough of the waffle, its time to hand out the awards! Now before i begin, could Rgggggggg in row 6 please stop throwing popcorn, Willow the preaching about the saints at the entrance and El Duque, quit it with the metal shirts please, this is a formal occasion!

    Post of the year: Would have to be the Footy Quiz post. 2,400 and still going strong. Special mentions to the ali is the greatest thread and the WTC thread, that continued on strong with great contributions throughout 2003. Go ahead, ask us anything thread was brillian and informative as well

    Poster of the year: Tough call, there can only be one. For his contributions to research in the field of American tours, it goes to Roopy

    International Poster of the year: Canadian Steve. Well versed in many aspects of international sport and other areas, added some great variety to the forums

    Forgettable Poster of the year: Multi way tie: Yum Yum, Johnny Rico, Bob Carr, Abercrombie Lane, George Bush Snr, George Bush Jnr, The Eye clan

    Come back if your reading post: Goes to anyone who has left. Most notably, it would be good to see Cryptic Messenger, Atillia, JustMeand Warlock gracing our screens a bit more.

    Debut Poster of the year: Everlovin Antichrist and Little Bunny

    Come back of the year: Rasputin during the later part of the year for some great informative posts. Second going to Bronco

    Whinger of the year: Goes to Pepe, for whinging about refs, the storm, his $5 cyber gamble, unfair manager elections, the price of bread and just about everything else. Even his AFL side got a run!

    Argument of the year: Hard to go past El Duque v Warlock.

    Scandal of the year: Undoubtedly the continuation of the WORL/LWOS differences in opinion. Throughout the year, mod forums were hacked, posters were deleted and complete forums were deleted. And this was only the start of the diffrences between the groups

    Most passionate fan: Tie between Legend, Rg, Ozbash and Willow

    Dummyspit of the year: 2 many candidates, ill leave this one for others to fill out

    Alternative posters award: Gorilla and CyberKev, who always put a unique yet brilliant spin on their posts

    Simmering topic never likely to end award: The continuing religious/philosophical debates between many of us

    Stupid post award: Many challengers. No winner, to hard to pick!


    On a serious note, well done to all and thanks for adding your bit, be it big or small, throughout the year!

    Cheers,
    Moff........Oops, Stamos ;)

    Me too - I've never got on with TFF.......and as a result I've lost contact with many great posters.

    I hope there's a LWOS revival of sorts - it was imho a pretty unique site.

    kier and MM, good to see you.

    Bender started a thread over on Front Row, about this place. He and I suggested the old members come back and give it a go once in a while. Don't know yet if any will take up the idea, but we can still hope.

    Wow, I'm surprised there are still a fair few of the old crew still here so I thought I would make a cameo appearance and say hi.

    HI! :D

    They could have at least updated the emoticons.....

    It's not the emoticons that make the site, Legend. [​IMG]

    Good to see you've had a stroll through your old place.

    Hi EA - I alwas thought the community here was too good to fall over and die.........especially given the circimstances of its initial 'birth'........I find it tough to believe that many of the old regulars honestly prefer TFF (or any other forum) over lwos.

    The quality of the posts here has never been consistently matched on any other site I've visited (only totalrl.com has ever got close imho).

    And, in Gav's absence, I assume I am undisputed international poster of the year here still.

    Can't believe how I messed up post #49. If only we had an edit function here.

    I guess Hotmail Ian with all his pictures deserves consideration for newcomer of the year.

    I give myself credit for checking in once a week or so and deleting spam. How many other posters have actually posted in 2006, Bender, besides you and I?

    Kier, definitely made some solid contributions. Legend poked his head in, as did Willow and El Duque. Hotmail Ian definitely made some of the best contributions, IMO, those photos are definitely well worth a look and they have have Leagueunlimited trying unsuccessfully to entice double posts over the front row. When i get the time i might try to look out who posted in 2006, might be interesting to see.

    So, it takes intelligence to start a thread with "McGrath is gay"?

    Noted.

    To quote from AHA's 1985 track Hunting High and Low (from the album of the same name) -- "I used to be confused, now I'm just not sure..."

    Alternative Poster of the Year???!!!

    A quick scan of the trusty Macquarie reveals the following definitions:

    1. a possibility of one out of two (or, less strictly, more) things.
    2. affording a choice between two things, or a possibility of one thing out of two.
    3. (of two things) mutually exclusive, so that if one is chosen the other must be rejected.
    4. offering standards and criteria of behaviour of a minority group within and opposed to an established western society.
    5. not having a mainstream following.
    Presumably you could also throw in a sixth category that refers to sexual preferences... I'm not sure of the category that you good people have been slotting me into here, although I suspect that category 5 is the most likely option. Frankly, I think I'm about as alternative as Channel 9, but I'd like to thank GODOT, The Minister for Silly Walks, The King of Norway, etc, etc for the alternative gong as it certainly beats the alternative (poor pun intended) of a broomstick thrust hard and fast up the clacker. What was I saying again about category six? In closing, I am reminded of that wonderful exchange from the cult movie of the 1980s, Flying High: CO-PILOT: "We have no alternatives" PILOT: "So what are the alternatives?" Tigertread and myself it would seem, going by this thread. Personally, I'm just disappointed that I'm not affluent (effluent?) enough to clean-up in the Eccentric poster of the year category. Yeah, I know there is no such category, but that didn't stop Wacko Jacko from picking-up the Artist of the Millennium non-gong did it? One could never be wealthy enough to roll him head-to-head in a battle of eccentric wills... CyberKev

    Howdy Doodi folks and seasons greatings to all.

    Poster of the year:

    Another tie..this timebetween Cyber Kev and Javaman. A special mention to those like Broncos Fan Baller, El Duque, Kiwi, Legend, Bronco, Willow...and many others that escape me at present. Too many fine posters here.

    Come back of the year:

    Warlock..or is he back?
    Whinger of the year:
    Sorry big guy..but it's you again for the reasons ED outlined earlier.
    Argument of the year:
    Anti Christ versus maybe 8 or 10 others.

    Dummyspit of the year:
    Like someone said, too many to pinpoint out justone.
