Mover and Shaker - Week 1

The 2011-2012 season is now 3 days old and with the end of the short week now passed, today marks the start of the weekly mover and shaker awards. As it always has been, the first award is based on the end of last years stats and serve us mainly as a starting point for the year. It's clear to all that not much can be fortold in the early days but, this first award does paint a picture of where things may go as time pushes on.

The clearest picture at this point is the difference a GM can make. The 7th season of 'The Dub' features two newbies into the fold who have both bought failing teams. One of these GM's has already made quite a splash in first few days by not only improving the placement of the failed team, but by doing so in massive fashion. GM Keith bought the ever struggling TeamSniperElite and it's obvious today that he didn't just change the name to Roly Snipes. He also made some incredible improvements to said team. After finishing last place (by a long shot) at the end of last year, in the first 3 days he's gained a whopping 137.5 points (which by the way smashes the record for these point gains). This massive point gain in the first few days should surely open some eyes and if that doesn't, the jump from last place to first overall definitely will. With this incredible achievement over the first few days, it's very easy to declare this newbie the Mover and Shaker for week one, and with that win comes one free move dropping him from 4 moves used to 3.
