Imagine the hue and cry if the PFA had voted Andros Townsend onto the short list for their Player of the Year. And, while they were at it, had not put a single Leicester player's name down.
Now this is not to have a go at Townsend. After a nightmare start to the season at Spurs he's had a great impact in a short spell with Newcastle and might yet help them not be relegated.
But Player of the Year? Seriously? And yet that is what the Rugby Players Association who represent the stars of the Aviva Premiership have effectively done by choosing Andy Goode among the nominees for their Players' Player of the Year award while not honouring a single one of their members from Saracens.
It is remarkable. Sarries face Leicester in their final match of the regular season this weekend having already guaranteed they will finish top of the table, and are 1.9110/11 favourites to go on and win the Grand Final.
They can get the first part of a remarkable double under their belts next Saturday when they play Racing 92 in the European Challenge Cup final and are 2.0621/20 to win that.
Goode, it has to be said, provided a wonderful seven-game cameo for Newcastle Falcons when he came out of retirement in January. He arguably saved them from getting relegated. But since when did seven games constitute a season?
So the fact he's on the list while Charlie Hodgson, who passed 250 Premiership appearances while amassing a record points total, or captain Brad Barritt who is on course to lead Sarries to that double, are not there, says a lot about how the other players view English rugby's most successful club.
Is it jealousy? Scrum half Richard Wigglesworth hinted at that by tweeting a gif of Kanye West saying 'Are you serious right now?' below the title 'The RPA nominations'.
Whatever the reason it shouldn't bother Barritt, Wigglesworth or any of the club's other front line stars as they bid to become the first side to do the domestic and European double since Wasps in 2004.
Saracens aren't loved because of their power game. Their tactics throttle the life out of the opposition. They are big and overwhelming in the forward line. They play percentages, and if sometimes it isn't pretty it still often ends up crushing the opposition.
They are also imaginative in their management. Last week they invited AP McCoy as an inspirational speaker to their players about the levels of dedication it had taken to remain at the top as a jump jockey for 20 years, and how those ideas could transfer to other sports.
That winning culture hasn't happened by accident. It has been fostered over more than a decade and the club is ready to create a significant achievement.
The players might not give them the respect they deserve, but the history books will.
