*The BMFL Fall All-Star Classic will include players from all three leagues (Heavyweight, Bantamweight, and FNL: Saturday Gameday), divided up into different teams to faceoff for All-Star Glory! The players were selected based on the same criteria we've always applied. The game will be held Sunday, November 13th @10am on Roosevelt Island. If you cannot attend this great event, please email the league (info@bmflfootball.com) ASAP so we can get your spot filled by the next alternate!*  

How do I get in?

Qualifying Process

The All-Star teams are selected by looking at the proportionate number of males and females in each of the major offensive categories and the top male and top female player in each major defensive category. The criteria applies to both the SUNDAY ELITE: HEAVYWEIGHT league and FNL: Saturday Gameday, i.e; the top 5 males in receptions in the EASTERN Conference and WESTERN Conference will both make the ALL-STAR CLASSIC. The SUNDAY ELITE: BANTAMWEIGHT division players are represented proportionally due to there being fewer teams in that division. The criteria is based on regular season stats only. The breakdown is as follows:

  • Top 5 males/Top 3 females in receptions

  • Top 5 males/Top 3 females in touchdown receptions

  • Top 2 males/Top female in touchdown passes

  • Top male/female in interceptions

  • Top male/female in sacks

The categories are tallied beginning with defensive interceptions, then sacks, then receptions, then touchdowns, and finally touchdown passes. For example, if a player were to be in the top five in both intercetions and touchdown catches, that player would make the All-Star team for interceptions only. They would not be eligible to make the team based upon touchdown receptions, so the next player on the list in that category will take the spot instead, and so on through each successive category. In the event of a tie, all players tied for that spot will make the team. The minimums to qualify for each category are as follows: 15 receptions, 3 touchdown receptions, 10 touchdown passes, 2 interceptions, 4 sacks.

 

Finally, any remaining open roster spots (if any) will be selected by the Commissioner, Big Mike. The Commissioner spends a stunning (and probably unhealthy) amount of time watching every game tape from every week of the season and will select the final spots based upon merit. If you feel you deserve one of these coveted Commissioner’s All-Star invitations, email us at info@bmflfootball.com to state your case!
