I think you've hit the nail of the head for me. It needs to either be a fun fan thing, or a serious legacy thing; I can't take it seriously as both. If it's a serious legacy thing, I think participation should be voted on only by the coaches, for the top players in the league regardless of conference, or position. The coaches are the only ones I vaguely trust. The fans, media, league, and refs even are all starfuckers. If it's a fun fan thing, stop using it to rate players careers, HoF worthiness, and the like. Fans just vote for who they like, not for who they think the best players in the league are. I always vote for all the Australian players, and the Kiwi if I can fit him in (got to look after my little bros). I've even voted for Nate "Outback Shaq" Jawai FFS!
