2012 Gentleman of the Year: Elite Eight

It is not a Gentleman of the Year tournament without at least one round of suspicious votes.  For the uninitiated, there are actually two competing GotY tournaments.  Much like the AP and the coaches poll, the same nominees are in both, but each bracket has different voters.

First is the People’s Vote.  This vote is held on GentlemanlyProductions.com, you will find the elite 8 polls below.  Anyone can vote in these polls.  And at the end, the People’s Gentleman is crowned.

Then, there is the Gentlemen’s Vote.  This vote is done via email and only includes members of the Chain of Gentlemen.  This vote crowns the Gentlemen’s Gentleman.

In the history of the GotY, only Rick and Daryl have been named the Undisputed Gentlemen of the Year.  As you can see from the links above, the two votes vary greatly, but carry nearly the same amount of prestige.  Will an Undisputed GotY be crowned this year, or will we have a split Gentleman once again?  Let’s find out Read More

2012 Gentleman of the Year: Sweet 16

In this, the 5th iteration of the naming of the Gentleman of the Year, we have made it to the Sweet 16.  The big news coming out of round one was that Jmac the number 3 seed lost to PSY.  Unfortunately for Jmac, news of PSY’s anti-American lyrics from years ago did not surface until voting was nearly complete.

A few people has made comments about the seeding recently.  Here is some insight on this highly technical process.  Starting on Christmas Day, nominations for Gentleman of the Year are allowed to be submitted.  The GOTY20XX chain is monitored by the lawfirm of Piccinich, Piccinich & Terry.  The week after Thanksgiving all CoG members are invited to rank the nominated Gentlemen.  This year there were 40 nominees.  Each Gentleman’s placement on each submitted ballot is then averaged.  The lowest average is the number one overall seed.  Starting from number one, each nominees is added to the bracket in a snake like pattern such that the 5th ranked nominee overall is the Number Two seed in the bracket of the 4th ranked nominee.

Enough of the preamble, here is the bracket as it stands, VOTE IN ALL 8 MATCH-UPS AFTER THE JUMP Read More
