    Are all listed here. I'm e-mailing them with the statistics... yes, actual STATISTICS, rather than media perceptions and asking them to justify their selection of Laurenitis as the winner, because, really, when it comes down to it, the only real justification was that they are on drugs, or they just didn't bother to look at the candidates.

    I encourage all of you to do the same!

    http://www.butkusaward.org/ then click on the selection committee link.

    When I get home from work tonight I'll work on putting together an e-mail list for all the names.

    PM SanDiegoBuff for emails. Not going to post them publicly for a number of reasons.

    So, when can we expect the announcement that the vote was overturned and rightfully given to JD?

    I wrote a nasty letter last year on behalf of Mason Crosby but to no avail, the problem with these awards is that they will always take into account a team's record because the people voting on these awards really don't take it seriously. Mason at least has spoken in the end, leading the NFL in points this season.

    Except that his percentage is the worst of the top 15. That isn't good.

    Not many Big XII guys on that list. Dizon is twice the LB that Lauranitis is and the stats prove it.

    I'm sure JD will use it is motivation in Shreveport.

    That is just like his senior year at CU, though. He has more attempts from 40+ than anybody in the league except Janikowski out in Oakland - and his % is lower than Mason's. Probably not a coincidence... :huh:
