First of all, how you select your All Star Teams should be described in your Local Rules BEFORE the season starts.
That way everyone knows how it is going to be done well before the voting takes place.
It eliminates these types of situations where, most likely, the Board will be accused of favoritism.
As for your scenario, I'd say the top vote getters (2 votes) are on the team and the All Star manager would select the remaining players (from those tied with 1 vote).
Another option would be to take the players tied with 1 vote and have the managers re-vote (5-6 votes each).
thanks for the feedback.
we do describe how we vote for AS in our by laws, just this particular scenario (ie only two teams) is not considered (might be topic for offseason, by laws in general are in desperate need to updating). managers from the division vote, top 10 vote recipients are on team, AS manager then can select remaining players (taking more than 12 if he desires) from any players who received at least one vote.
we are basically having the managers revote on all the one vote recipients. it is just hard, as all those one vote recipients got their one vote almost universally from their manager.
I had actually suggested letting the AS manager (who is an AC, not one of the two managers) get to 12 from all the one vote recipients, no one liked this, including AS manager. funny thing is, 5 minutes prior, he had said we should allow him to have a vote as well. rest of BOD did not like that, neither did I, since he was AC on one of the teams (2 voters associated with one team, only one from the other team). basically letting him decide from the pool of 1 vote recipients would have amounted to his having a vote.
BTW, he seemed skeptical he will get the team he wants/feels will be competitive, not certain, we are small league, especially on SB side, both managers have managed for a few years, and most know all the girls pretty well at this point.
really hate the selection process with low numbers, gets so hard to keep it confidential, not a matter of people talking, but you can pretty much figure out who voted for who if you think about it for a while.
