This year, we're running the tab headlines first, and the Main page contest after, with the other contests (wordplay, context, etc) after. Just a heads-up that all of the subtab headlines are going up today: Sports, Geek, Entertainment, Politics, and Business. Each of them will show up both on the mainpage and also in each respective subtab. I'm going to keep each stickied to the top for a while for voting purposes.

Here are your final candidates for Fark's Sports Headline of the Year. These are the top 20 sports headlines as voted, with the top five from each quarter of 2014. Now you get to choose the one you like best. Enjoy.
