|Voting is open for the Supporters' Player of the Year for 2017 - i.e. the North Sydney player voted on by the fans. The article from the NS website, including a list of players and a link to the voting, is at www.northsydneybears.com.au/2017-supporters-player-year. Voting closes at midnight Wednesday. It's always a bit ambiguous when "midnight" is used - while it's the start of the day (clocks set to zero, fireworks go off to herald the start of a new year), it's often seen as the end of the day. As I result, I don't know if "midnight Wednesday" comes at the end of Tuesday or the end of Wednesday. Vote by Tuesday to be sure is my suggestion.
The winner will be announced at the club's presentation night on Friday 22nd September. There'll be a separate post about that in the "Upcoming Events" sections.
Some years have had a 3-2-1 but this year it's just one vote. That's a shame, there are a few players I'd like to give a vote to.
Apart from 2015, the it's been awarded annually since 2005, initiated by girvie and/or Bears4Life if I recall. Previous winners, including links to pages on TMB (where applicable), were:
1st: Eli Levido
Not awarded (I don't think we were asked)

2017 SUPPORTERS’ PLAYER OF THE YEAR
September 11, 2017
by Steve Little
The North Sydney Bears’ season is over but we have one last task for our supporters in 2017.
The Bears are inviting you to vote on who you think was the best North Sydney player in 2017.
Below are some basic stats for those players who made seven or more appearances in the Red & Black.
When you’re ready vote online via THIS LINK. www.surveymonkey.com/r/TSNRWPN
The player that receives the most number of votes will be annouced at the Club’s Presentation Night.
Voting will continue until midnight Wednesday 20th September 2017.
So get voting.
At the end of the article, there is a table with the names of 23 players showing how many games they've played divided into W-D-L and a Win Percentage. Interesting, but I'm not sure of the value of this. It implies that the higher win percentage a player has, the more valuable a player he is. I don't think that's the correct inference to draw at all.
Anyway, the table doesn't copy very well but the players and the number of games each has played are:
Anthony Cherrington 15
Brad Deitz 23
Adam Doueihi 13
Tom Freebairn 7
Tyrell Fuimaono 8
Jack Gosweiski 9
Brett Greinke 11
Jamal Hunt 7
Luke Kelly 21
Eli Levido 23
FJ Mauala 13
Abbas Miski 14
Sitiveni Moceidreke 18
Ed Murphy 21
Cameron Murray 13
Dane Neilsen 11
Latrell Robinson 11
Piki Rogers 18
Toby Rudolf 22
Patrice Siolo 7
Tautalatasi Tasi 18
Dave Tyrell 13
Cheyne Whitelaw 21
The cut-off seems to have been seven appearances. See the list of season stats at www.mightybears.com/viewtopic.php?t=6581 (compiled by 092016).
