This project has several deficencies we need crowdsourcing to overcome:
7
There are 100 total ballots. Each voters ranks five players awarding scaled points for each place. The player with the largest sum wins the MVP award.

METHODOLOGY: We attempt to find confirmation of each media member's vote and confirmation they have a ballot.
