    You need to fix your website! The voting is not fair. I have tried to vote AND have not voted and it keeps saying I cannot vote for a breakout player! I also have friends who are having a problem voting too.

    If someone else in your network has voted then you are unable to vote. It is set up that way so someone doesn’t sit there and voted 500 times for one athlete.
