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

@HappyWithVolleyball Ah yes, I agree! Best Newcomer is an important award in Asian Leagues.

@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.

@Volleybox Is this still on the todo list or has this been implemented? I'm looking at https://women.volleybox.net/women-all-japan-intercollegiate-championship-2020-21-o18481/best_players for a Fighting Spirit award to give

@sitenoise I haven't started working on this.
To be honest I don't have clear message which exact tournaments has that additional awards (“MIP”, “best newcomer” awards won't be visible for all tournaments, only for specific ones). Links to the tournaments would be helpful for me (both men and women tournaments, and for all age types: senior, U20, U18 etc. from that list: https://women.volleybox.net/clubs-tournaments and https://volleybox.net/clubs-tournaments).

@Volleybox  okay, I'll get to work on it, but I can only share with confidence Japan women (I imagine men mirrors women, though). Maybe @HappyWithVolleyball and @breakingice can help in other areas.

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.

@Volleybox 

Fighting Spirit - MIP Award:

https://women.volleybox.net/women-japan-vleague-division-1-tt185

https://women.volleybox.net/women-japan-vleague-division-2-tt423

https://women.volleybox.net/women-v9-champ-league-tt978

https://women.volleybox.net/women-all-japan-intercollegiate-championship-tt626

https://women.volleybox.net/women-japan-vleague-division-1-v-cup-tt1129

https://women.volleybox.net/women-kurowashiki-tournament-tt413

https://women.volleybox.net/women-kanto-university-autumn-league-tt1233 (There are other university tournaments I may add to the database that will have it)

Basically everything female in Japan (including Summer Leagues) except the High School Championship and Empress Cup gives the award. I assume it is the same for the man version.

Best Newcomer Award:

https://women.volleybox.net/women-japan-vleague-division-1-tt185

https://women.volleybox.net/women-japan-vleague-division-2-tt423

Best Newcomer/Rookie isn't as prevalent in Japan (that I'm aware of). They do give it for summer leagues but I haven't added those here yet.

I, personally, give a new face award to Japan Division 1 each year called the Cute Rookie Alert Girl Award. It's for a player, usually a HS or Uni star who joins the V.League mid season and whose camera time is disproportionately out of line with their playing time. But you don't need to include it 😀

@Volleybox  I meant to add that as far as I know it's only a Club thing, not a U-Squad thing.

Update on Korea. The Korean (KOVO) Cup awards to a “rising star”, I imagine that is a best newcomer. I'm unable to find the korean v-league awarding either the MIP or newcomer.

@sitenoise @Volleybox apologies for the delayed reply. Best newcomer in the Korean V-League is called@sitenoise  ‘신인선수상’ and is shown on the website. The best newcomer for 2019-2020 was Park Hyeon-ju from Heungkuk Life. https://www.kovo.co.kr/stats/44100_19-20_vleague-award.asp
