Sin Bin announces their 2018 SPHL All Star Team

Recommended Posts

The Sin Bin's 2018 SPHL All Star Team

Quote

LAFAYETTE, LA — For the third year, The Sin Bin is proud to announce their SPHL All Star Team for 2018. Unlike the last two years, which the SPHL team was crafted to take on a fictional FHL All Star Team for an exhibition game, this season splits the league into northern and southern divisions for an intraleague three-on-three match.

Twenty-two players – twelve skaters, six defensemen, and four goaltenders – and two coaches were selected to this year’s squads. Four of the players – two forwards and two defensemen – were picked through a record-setting fan vote.

The highly competitive fan voting totaled an unbelievable 448,617 votes for 60 finalists, sparking some controversy as to possible automated voting. After discussions with many participants and within our own website staff, we are confident in the legitimacy of the voting results. Modern browser technology gives people the ability to cast votes with never-before-seen speed and efficiency. We at The Sin Bin are thankful for all of the SPHL fans – the best and most passionate fans in all of pro hockey – for their countless hours of casting votes for their favorite players.

I don't understand why Spraggs made it. If he made it as the equipment manager or water boy then that would make sense.

He was the forward with the most votes by fans in #TeamNorth.

Obviously, but it still doesn't make sense when there are way better players.

Never underestimate the power of "highly competitive fan voting" to do the unexpected.

Yeah, I understand that fans could vote as much as they want but again I don't know why Spraggs would get that votes when there are far better players.

Same way politicians in Chicago, Louisiana, and elsewhere got their votes

Ya know....maybe family and friends decided to put Spraggs over the top. When fan voting is involved, it isn't about the best player at that point.....other things come into play. Pretty simple to understand....
