Christmas Comes Early For A Second Year In A Row

8 By Ian  |   The Ball  |   December 10, 2010  |     70

This time last year, we celebrated winning a Gold Award at the When Saturday Comes Webwatch awards, and we are delighted to be able to confirm (for those of you that aren’t involved in Twitter and/or haven’t bought the brand new edition of the magazine yet) that, in a decision that startled us as much as anybody else, we have again been bestowed with that particular award. As I said last year, there is no greater honour than to be praised by such a venerable publication, one that I have now been a reader of for a scarcely credible twenty-two years. Our thanks, as they did last year, go to whoever made the final decision.

The most significant change to this site over the last twelve months has been the introduction of some our regular contributors to the site as effective co-owners of it, so this year’s award is for Ed Carter, Gavin Saxton, Rob Freeman and Mark Murphy, who have done so much over the last twelve months to keep the place up to date and ticking over. I can promise further tweaks over the coming months, too, just to keep us all on our toes. As ever, we should also thank those of you that bother to stop by and read what we have to say. It would all be a bit of a waste of time if it wasn’t for you lot.

Finally, it would only be fair to offer a nod to the other sites that were included in this year’s awards. It’s an honour and a pleasure to be mentioned in the same as these guys, all of whom are more than worth a place in your bookmarks folder.

    Doesn’t surprise me. This is the best blog on the net, and against some strong competition at that. Congratulations again.

    Dear Team 200%,

    I am writing from Fantasy League Limited ( – if you are not familiar with Fantasy League, we launched the fantasy sports concept in the UK in 1991 and are now Europe’s leading supplier of fantasy sport games.

    We have just launched our EURO 2012 games and I’d like to involve 200% in our promotions. There are a number of revenue streams available to you, including:
    • Becoming an affiliate of our Classic Euro game, where you would earn 40% commission for every registration you generate

    • Potentially we could look at offering you a free league for our Professional game (worth £300) in exchange for game promotion

    • We also are about to launch Fantasy League Sweepstake for EURO 2012 which may be of interest to your audience

    I look forward to answering your questions, discussing the above in more detail and hopefully working together over the summer.

    Kindest regards,
