How Awards Are a Year Behind
I hate that when you refer to the year something wins an award, it actually happened in the previous year. Like people will say The Kingâ€™s Speech won the Oscar for best picture in 2011, but in reality it was the best picture of 2010. Shouldnâ€™t the award be called the 2010 award? I find this same phenomenon with the cover of Madden. In a year a player has success, but the year they are on is delayed by two years. Peyton Hillis had a great year in 2010, and is on the cover of 2012. His 2011 has been forgettable, and at this rate heâ€™ll be out of the league in 2012? Why canâ€™t they just name things for the years they actually occurred?
