Hott Toddy for Rookie of the Year!!!!!!!!! FISH YEAH!!!
The 5 are:
Frank Yallop - Coach of the Year
Jeff Agoos - Defender of the Year
Landon Donovan - MVP
Todd Dunivant - Rookie of the Year
Pat Onstad - GK of the Year
Just for reference.
Wait a minute.... Are they up for these awards? Or is this just that the team thinks they deserve these awards?
Sub-Title of Press Release:
"Landon Donovan, Frank Yallop, Pat Onstad, Jeff Agoos and Todd Dunivant All Deserve Consideration for Honors "
Key Word: Deserve. I think the answer is maybe and yes. I don't believe there is a selection which creates the candidates for award (I.e. MVP can be A, B, or C). Essentially, anyone can be selected for the award. However, you probably already knew all of this...
The league usually announces three "candidates" for each award, which are really the top 3 vote-getters after the votes are counted, and then they announce the winners right before the MLS Cup final.
Well, yeah, that would be why I asked if they just "deserve" the awards. At first I thought this release was the announcement from the league cuz the thread says they are "up" for these awards. Then I reread it more closely and realized that it's just the team saying who's deserving.
Thanks for the false alarm. I expect official releases to be more factual. When the real candidates are announced, THEN you can tell us this. Sheesh!
