The Canadian Football League (CFL) miscalculated the voting results for its regular season all-star squads and released the identities of the bad players on Wednesday.  ;
In the morning, the first selection of the circuit made many eyes widen across Canada. This was particularly the case with the Alouettes, when only two players were part of the starred Eastern team.
These two Sparrow representatives were wide receiver Eugene Lewis and defensive back Najee Murray . If the first fully deserves this honor, the same cannot be said for the second.
After practice, several members of the Alouettes did not seem to really understand the logic of the CFL.
“I think it's crazy,” Lewis said. Take it and leave it with that kind of honor, though, because there are plenty of guys who deserve it and get snubbed. It's special that we only have two guys on the all-star team. There are many of my defensive, offensive and special teams teammates who have had a very good season.”
“The CFL offers its sincere apologies to everyone who participated in this project. , particularly to players who were incorrectly identified as stars and those who should have been,” the league said in a statement.
“The CFL also sends its apologies to its fans for this error. unacceptable.”
Finally, four Alouettes footballers were named to their section's all-star team. They are Lewis, offensive lineman Landon Rice, defensive back Wesley Sutton and kick return specialist Chandler Worthy.
