Adding MIP to Award List?

Hello,

I have a suggestion to add MIP (Most Important Player) to the award list. 

This is because in leagues like Japan or South Korea, there is an award given to the best player of the runners-up team. It is an award that is next important to the MVP, and I think this should be included as well.

In Japan, it is called 敢闘賞 (Fighting Spirit Award) and in South Korea, it is just called MIP.

Fighting Spirits are a big honor in Japan. I have always missed not being able to include them here

@breakingice  Yes. It's so important as athletes only get one chance for life.

To sum up, two new awards should be added:

  • Most Important Player
  • Best Newcomer

For which tournaments should it be available? All Japanese and South Korean tournaments (all levels and both genders)?

@Volleybox  I'll let @breakingice make the call because it was his/her suggestion but I'd call it “Fighting Spirit” instead of  “Most Important Player” because for those who don't know about it, it might be confusing with the MVP.

All levels and genders in Japan, yes.

@Volleybox yes, Best Newcomer is an award given each season in Japan Leagues.

or “Fighting Spirit - MIP” ?

@sitenoise This seems like a good option. I brought up MIP because that is the name used in Korean tournaments, but is the same concept as the Fighting Spirit Award in Japan. If it is complicated to differentiate them, it seems good to me to write it as Fighting Spirit - MIP.
