CFL On TSN Player Poll Results


The players have spoken again.

More than 250 current CFL players participated in the third annual CFL on TSN Player Poll this fall, giving their opinions in a variety of football categories. The surveyed players were asked to name one player for each of the 10 questions in the poll with topics ranging from most under-rated player to biggest trash-talker.

There are a few repeat winners from last year's poll but there are also plenty of new faces.

The largest margin of victory in this year's poll was in the Biggest Threat To Score category, where Hamilton's Chris Williams won convincingly with 68 percent of the vote.

The most wide-open vote in the poll was for most underrated player as Winnipeg's Chad Simpson won the category with 7.9 per cent of the total vote.

The East Division-leading Montreal Alouettes led the way in the poll with three category winners. Winnipeg and Hamilton had two winners each while the Eskimos were the only team shut out.
