This list is…odd.

Good see Ciraco from a true rook starter to a solid all Canadian. These votes sre done by the players themselves.

Some of these players have obviously been voted in based on past years performance, like Bighill for example. He’s been mediocre.

Jones over Steinhauer for coach is shocking. Says a lot that Harris is omitted and Lawrence made the team. Do sick of people comparing the two suspensions when one makes the player a cheater and the other just make a bonehead move in the heat of the moment. Obviously Lawrence is still respected by most other players, while Harris… Not so much.

We have stellar receivers and DBs. Odd that only Banks was selected out of those two groups. ???

It looks like a “spread the wealth” list.

Other teams have good players too. We can’t be the best in the league at every single position.

Exactly.

Choices are based on somewhat fuzzy criteria, politics, and sentiment for any award that isn’t strictly statistically based.

I think this is a true reflection of what the players feel. Here is what is said on 3Down Nation about how the team is chosen:

This team was voted on by current members on the nine CFL member clubs with 430 ballots being cast.

Only players who have played 12 or more games during the season are eligible. Players may not vote for any player or coach who is a member of their own team.

This vote is unique in that the players only vote for the all-stars in the positions they go head-to-head with since they can best judge the abilities and skills of these players. For example, receivers and slotbacks are voted for by defensive backs. All players and coaches may vote for the head coach and special teams player.

The voting is conducted as follows: each player selects three players at the specified positions on their ballot and ranks them first through third. First place votes receive three points, second place votes receive two points and third place votes receive one point. After all votes are weighed, the players with the highest point totals for each position are named as CFLPA all-stars.

True. But Ed Gainey? I guess I have vastly under-rated Mr Gainey.
