Anyone else actually wanna see East square off vs. West?
Is it bias of me to vote for a TiCat player for every position?
Nope. I do the same thing lol
Sure it is. And why would you do anything else? (What? You think fans of other teams cough Riders cough aren't doing the same thing?)
Last year, everyone wanted to vote for Thigpen as a returner, but he wasn't on the list. Something tells me that we might have the same issue this year with Williams. I don't know if Williams will at some point take over from Thigpen as our primary returner or not, but it wouldn't surprise me if he did.
Which goes a long way to explain why these polls have absolutely no value or validity.
Fans only count for 25% of the votes. But with that being said I still am voting for Ti-Cats at every position!
Fans can Vote once per day, so keep voting for your favourite Tiger-Cats !!!!!!!!
It doesn't matter how many times you vote, you won't out-vote "Rider Nation."
Each time you succeed in helping a Tiger-Cat be named an all-star, you're spending a few thousand Ti-Cat dollars on a contract bonus. Those bucks are then not available, under the "cap," for spending elsewhere. It wouldn't amount to much in the big picture, but every dollar counts. While having a player named an all-star is good for player (bonus, recognition, an improved bargaining position) it's a financial negative for the team.
The east and west are seperate voting so it doesnt matter what the Rider Nation does, were going up against the East All Stars !!
SO KEEP VOTING FOR YOUR HAMILTON TIGER-CATS :thup: :thup:
The biggest problem I'm having is that my conscience won't let me vote for Ticat players across the board. There are certain positions where I just don't see us having anyone worthy of voting for, or at least not enough to fill all the positions available.
Not that I'm voting for other teams' players instead. I've been leaving those spots unassigned.
Am I a bad Ticats fan for doing this? :?
LOL just kidding. I say if you can't vote for a Ticat don't vote for anyone. Good job. I have no conscience so that's not a problem for me.
Rather appropriate tagline you have there. REALLY appropriate on this forum.
keep voting !!

Everyone still remembering to vote every day?
I actually vote for who I think are the best at their positions. The only Riders I put up there are ones I believe are some of th best at their positions this year, I have Freeman, Dressler, and Butler(mostly because he is a rookie and looks good playing that position). I thought other fans would vote for who they thought were the best too, but I guess not ticats fans.
I'm with you. I'm not a "black out" voter; there are a number of positions that I leave blank because I just don't see any Ticat player as All-Star material there. And I sometimes vote for players from other teams when they are just that good, even if it does mean I'm risking my Ticats membership card. (But never an Arrgh-Ho.) And as I don't know the western players as well as the eastern players, I tend not to vote that side. I'll leave the to the fans who know them better.
But I know there are fans - from all teams, not just Hamilton - who will fill the entire roster with their own team's players. Which is why fan votes aren't the only determining factor for the All-Stars selection. Otherwise, players from teams with the most rabid fans (wonder which team fits that description the best?) would be the only ones selected.
Did you happen to vote for any Ticat players yourself? Just curious.
