Joe Thaman of Superman’s Wheelchair won Player of the Week Honors for Week 1.
This was the first week that that public vote was balanced with a vote of the PWL Managers. Thaman came in tied for second in the public vote to Benjamin Turner of the Garbage Plates who ran a strong campaign collecting 59% of the website tally.
One of the previous complaints about the online voting was that is was more indicative of who could run a web-based turnout program than perform on the field. The Managers vote helps to balance out a campaign of this nature. 16 of the 20 Managers voted this week.
