Default Re: Nfl Network:Top 100 players of 2013

Just to confirm what a farce this list is, and somewhat explain some bizarre results...
Quote:
...on Friday, Eagles linebacker Connor Barwin said via Twitter, ď[E]veryone knows no players actually vote for whoís on that list right?Ē
...
So we asked NFL Network to explain the process, and to confirm that players indeed cast ballots for the list.

Ideally, all players would do it. This year, the league says only 481 of them actually did. Thatís 28.3 percent of all active players.
...
To vote, each player lists only his top 20 players in the league. The player listed at No. 1 gets 20 points, the player listed at No. 2 gets 19 points, and the process continues until the player listed at No. 20 gets one point.

So itís really not a ďtop 100″ list. Itís the 100 players who received the highest vote totals from players who attempted to list their personal top 20, presumably without the benefit of all 32 rosters or starting lineups or Pro Bowl qualifiers or anything else that would ensure they arenít accidentally overlooking someone as they pull 20 names out of thin air.
