Now, this award thing…..

Filed under: snookerbacker @ 11:18 am

Last week I was nominated for a Shorty Award in the category of Best Blog and the blog is now in the top ten in the world having received nominations from quite a number of people, including my great pal Steve Davis (we go way back), Stuart Bingham (mee old mukker), Michael Holt (he loves  SB) and the one and only MJW (King Float).

Oh and look who else has decided to nominate? Only World Champions Ken Doherty and Shaun Murphy, that’s all…

It needs to get into the top 6 to get to the judging phase when it will surely lose but the competition closes in a fortnight so I would be very grateful if you could take a second to tweet your vote. I even did an interview to boost my chances which you can read by clicking here.

All you have to do to register your vote is to copy and paste the tweet below onto your Twitter account and tweet it.


I nominate @snookerbacker1 for a Shorty Award in #blogger because (then give your reason) 

Thanks to everyone who has voted so far.

(Oh yes, any Snookerbacker Classic players that haven’t voted will be docked 4 frames in their next match)

    a bit of bribery doesn’t make you a bad person SB! just on another note i see that Stephen Lee has been listed as one of the 32 players to qualify for the PTC Grand Finals on world snooker?

    • snookerbacker

      @davedale – Yes he is included but the get out at the bottom makes me think that he might not play. The latest I have heard is that the integrity unit are waiting on papers from the original investigation from the police and crown prosecution service, this explains the delay somewhat.

    There is a bit of a proviso saying “If a player withdraws or is determined ineligible to play before the draw has been made, the player will be replaced by the next player on the Order of Merit list from which the withdrawing player had qualified. If a player withdraws or is determined ineligible after the draw has been made then no replacement will be made and the opponent of the withdrawn player will be awarded a walk over”. Presumably all this means is that they intend to announce the result of the case before the draw is made…………
