The balloting for the 2017 CPBL All-Star Game has comes to an end, and the final ASG starting lineup has been announced. However, Brothers fans and organisation are outraged over the new All-Star Game voting system this year.
“The new voting system has made the fans votes insignificant, what’s the point for fans to vote if the “experts panel votes” (made up by players, coaches and press) ends up dictating the final All-Star Game starting lineup” Said Chinatrust Brothers GM.
The 2017 All-Star Game voting system is a little different from the previous seasons, as the press votes now plays a much bigger role (40%) in the balloting process. Instead of using the total number of votes for final starting lineup. Now the total votes is used for position ranking before applying the fans (60%) and experts (40%) weighted adjustment.
Sounds confusing? Maybe this will clear it up. Under the below calculation, Player A, B and D will get selected. Despite ranked #3 after the initial voting, Player C will not be selected after the weighted adjustment.
