Two weeks ago we had a look at our Dally M Team of the Year, but this time we turn our attention to the unwanted awards.

Not everything goes to plan for every club and player each year, and we at Zero Tackle have decided who will be the recipients of our very own Dummy M awards!

Worst off-field behaviour 

Winner: Corey Norman (Parramatta Eels)

Norman wins this award by a landslide, after being suspended by the NRL for the final eight games of the season and fined $20,000.

The Eels halfback was suspended due to his conviction for drug possession at The Star casino and filming incidents involving apparent drug use and sexual activity among other things, and the ban added to what had been a terrible season the Parramatta club following their salary cap breaches.

It seems as though all of that was quickly forgotten by the Eels bosses, as Norman was re-signed by the Eels on a three-year deal worth $2.2 million.

Notables: James Roberts (Brisbane Broncos), Mitchell Pearce (Sydney Roosters)
