Your call Niners Nation

Yesterday I posted something I thought would be fun, about how, or I should say, who on NN should be in positions on the Niners staff  :

It got some looks and comments and I noticed some things:

  • Some called for certain people for certain positions.
  • Some seconded those.
  • Some nominated themselves.
  • Some seconded those. 

It kinda looked a bit political. So with that in mind I have an idea.

I can run a poll up each week 1 for each position: HC, DC, OC, PR, FO slots, even equip manager if you'd like. Something in the mid week range after we all get over the weekend game and the emotions. Something to remind us we are all fans of the same team and can get along regardless of the opinions flying around. Basically for fun.

Now I'm not the type that likes to talk politics and I keep those kinda things to myself. However this could be fun, we can vote for our own NN members (and I don't just mean frontpage people) to take over 4949 Centennial Blvd. next season(it would likely take all season to run these polls).

My proposal is:

  • Set a post on say Tuesday for a position.
  • Have people either nominate their candidate and why, or claim themselves as a candidate and say why.
  • Vote like we do for "caption this" via the rec option.
  • Highest four recs get to go to polls on Thursday.
  • During the poll you can again say why you like that candidate or even pimp yourself if you are in it to sway the voters.
  • Winner gets posted on Saturday.
  • If there are ties due to the recs we could slip in like a green party option and allow more than four.

I again want to say I'm not calling for heads for the team. This would just be some fun in the mid week for us to remember why we all come to this site and are fellow fans.

Now the Poll is to gauge your thoughts on this idea. Please? If you like it tell me your thoughts/ideas to make it work in the comments. If you don't like it.. well go ahead and tell me why also.

This poll again is to see if NN would like it. It's to late in the week to start it so that gives some time to refine the plan by next week.
