You have got that the wrong way around the only award voted by the public was team of the year. Con o callaghan should have been nominated for young player of the year.

Nope you're wrong there. The Sportsperson of the Year was voted on by the public but the voting closed on Wednesday 13th Dec on that award I.e. BEFORE the live TV broadcast. Therefore all the awards were voted on by the public...it's just that the public wasn't aware or couldn't be bothered to vote. A simple Google search confirms the voting arrangements.

Fair enough but the team of the year was a public vote which some on here have ignored
