Our Prospectus Idol contestants had a task for Week Four that will be familiar to regular readers–to pick a subject and build the perfect Player Profile about them. Selected comments from our judges:
“At the end, I was nodding my head.” — Will Carroll, on Matthew Knight
“I do think you needed an editor — not for writing or grammar, but to decide what to put in here and what to take out.” — Kevin Goldstein, on Matt Swartz
“I love the confidence you show talking about a player that people aren’t considering the way your conclusion does, and the fact that you explained the disconnect between the opposing viewpoints brought up by PECOTA’s optimism.” — Marc Normandin, on Brian Oakchunas
“What we got was something solid but unspectacular–instead of tool time, we got a grinder’s effort.” — Christina Kahrl, on Brian Cartwright
“Ken gets in his own way a lot, from the title to the needless Batman sounds.” — Carroll, on Ken Funck
“An excellent Profile overall, and fine work.” — Kahrl, on Tim Kniker
This was another close week for voting–many voters commented on how all of the entries were solid competitors. But the first rule of Prospectus Idol is that someone goes home every week, and Tyler Hissey will be leaving us this time around. Thank you for all your hard work, Tyler, and we’re looking forward to seeing what you do next.
