The only thing is with crowd picking people to play most of the crowd is jus there watching there friend or son or daughter play so obviously they are going to pick them but how does the axbl and all of those leagues nominate people

They nominated captains and then at the event this weekend the captains are going to be scouting each team to pick 1 or 2 players.

The only problem is paint. Half the people that get picked probably wouldn't want to fork over the money to cover the paint.

should get paint for close to cost.
because theres no prizes involved.
then if there were prizes for the winning team, then they should get money. plus allstar trophies.

allstar jerseys would be cool too.
with a simple gpxl east and west or so. with each teams original representing logo on it just to show from what team they came from. would be kinda expensive but would be pretty cool.

id love to do this....it would be hard to designate who plays though because as stated before, people there are gonna vote for their friends/family. there isnt a large fan base for one player or another in the gpl because its a regional tourney... so its more personal then a national where you have teams from all over the country, not just an area. i think the proper way to do this would be to have each team from 5 and 7 man d2/d3 nominate 2 players... *ya its gonna be like 100 people but follow me* those people write a small autobiography or some form of why they should move onto the next level citing playing experience, age, etc. the list is then posted here or on the gpl website and people can write in and vote for who they would like to see playing. you take the top 30-50 and have one more round of voting to make the 2 teams.

as for the game itself. it should be run for a race to 9 if we need to limit with 2 16 min halfs. i think there should be some type of jersey given/bought by the all star player to wear and rep his side and keep as a momento. as little as a nice long sleeve or something to that extent. paint should be either byop or get it from the gpl for cost since this is just an exhibition game, nothing but pride on the line.

ill prob think of some more but thats what i came up with..

also... ill be the captain of one of the lines...

plenty of xball experience lol

Any thoughts.........

I think this is an excellent idea. 7-man would have to be it's own all-star game, something like what they did in Jacksonville.

For the X-Ball All-Star Game the top 10 teams going into Event #6 each nominate 2 players and the top two young guns teams do the same giving you 24 players total. This would be much easier than voting and would make the hunt for series standings even more intense.

The paint is a no brainer, either byop or discounted gpl paint like they do for 7-man. Scheduling is easy too just hold the event on Saturday at Event 6.

Lets make this Happen!

Picking the players for the All Star game should be up to a group of designated people, not the spectators since most of the spectators don't have a complete understanding of the game.
Asking the head reffs to do the picking wouldn't be a bad idea at all imho.
The Jersey idea would be great; more publicity for the GPL.

People would want to bring their girls or family or teams to come watch. Have small bleachers if possible.
I like that ideal the most

this is a nice ideal for making an allstar game
