They should have created a new trophy if they wanted an 'international player of the year' award instead of reusing (and devaluing) something as prestigious as the golden boot

It's like awarding the SL trophy to the winner of the challenge cup final

Well done TM for winning the Golden Boot and being the best International player this year. Doesn’t mean he’s the best player in the world this year. I think with the rule changes the award recognition changes. Think some are over reacting and probably need to stop comparing him to previous players that have won it.

Then change the name if the award and give makinson international player of the year or something, why downgrade the award, because thats what is they have done, essentially an insult to previo winners.

Isn't this a forum where people can compare opinions, I think if Johnstone and Makinson are going to be compared; surely this is the place for it to happen?

You're correct on the insults bit, Homme Vaste was out of order.

Eh and why is that sorry? Should there be a separate thread for every player I'd like to compare Makinson to? Surely this thread should be open to discuss anything surrounding the golden boot award; not only Johnstone but any player?

"The Rugby League World Golden Boot Award is a rugby league award handed out annually for achievements in rugby league by Rugby League World magazine. The Golden Boot is given, usually in December after the conclusion of all the year's matches, to the player adjudged to be the best in the world, as determined by a ballot of international media representatives."

I get why you deleted the insults, Homme Vaste was out of order but I think you've judged this one incorrectly.

We set up a separate thread to stop all threads being derailed by the current comparison between TM & TJ. Please use that thread for comparison discussions and this one for discussing the Golden Boot. Thank you.

Interestingly it is the first time a winger has won the award.
