One season later, we’re back…

We are in the midst of  the ‘awards’ section of the off-season, started by the voting poll for SFL Season 17 honours being released a few moons ago, so naturally it felt like the perfect time to revisit the ‘All-division’ teams idea. For those that either didn’t read last season’s article or weren’t in the SFL at the time, the brain spark for this piece came from a conversation I had with good friend and former teammate, Doug Britton, in which we mused on how cool it would be if a mini off-season tournament was played between teams constructed with the best players from each division. As most of these conversations go, we had opinions on which team would emerge victorious, but knew that practically, the league has too many plates spinning during the off-season to add another off-season competition to think about. Therefore, the article was born, with the desired effect of promoting similar musings across the SFL community. I mentioned the article synopsis to Hubba Kimbrel and Axel Raven, and they collectively directed their graphical talents to the piece, bringing what would be black and white typed text to life. I have to thank the two men heartily for their contributions.

Back in the present day, I have to say…boy was it tough to justifiably fill these rosters. Some positional groups were nearly impossible to choose. Linebackers? There are so many of you out there who are deserving! Slot receivers? You were probably the group that had most parity across the league! It was insanely hard deciphering who had the biggest impact on their team from the slot. Honestly, some of these decisions gave me a headache – just as many as those that were clear cut. I also changed things up slightly from last season, hopefully for the better. The makeup of each ‘All-Division’ roster has been hit with a bit of specificity. No longer are the three receivers just the ‘best 3 receivers’. I wanted to give love to slot guys and girls in the SFL, so one receiver spot goes to them. The linebackers were also refined – one spot per team available for Inside ‘backers and two spots for those on the outside. I presumed this would have the effect of easier decisions to make – it didn’t. Heck, one special teams place had to be shared. I simply couldn’t separate them.

Now, with this standing as a potentially divisive opinion piece, I know full well that the community will have their say – I welcome it. If you would like an article explaining some of the rosters and the players who were picked vs those that were left out (snubbed), let me know! I’d be happy to give the community what they call for. Right now, sit back, relax, grab a warm drink and a strong opinion and peruse these teams.
