Shine Bright: 2018 CFL All-Stars Named.

Shine Bright: 2018 CFL All-Stars Named.

The Canadian Football league has named the players who have been selected as the 2018 CFL All-Stars.  The CFL season may be over but in the run up to the festive season the CFL reveals its own pre-Christmas stars.

An early Christmas present from the league to fans who can start arguing over many of the choices straight away! The All-Stars were selected by the Football Reporters of Canada (FRC) and the league’s head coaches.

The Numbers

In total 5 players from the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, BC Lions and Hamilton Tiger-Cats were chosen. 4 from the Saskatchewan Roughriders, and Ottawa REDBLACKS. 3 from the Calgary Stampeders and 1 from the Edmonton Eskimos.

No players were selected from the league cellar dwellers. There is no room for anybody from the 5-13 Alouettes or the 4-14 Argonauts. Not only are half of the East Division teams not represented but the West took two thirds of the All-Star spots.

Western based players outnumber the East 18-9. However that is a distinct improvement in balance on last year when the West dominated 23 to 4.

One of the great things about this years selection is that there are 11 first time All-Stars. That can only be seen as a positive in terms of seeing new talent and having good depth.
