It's not a rule, cuz no one else has to follow it. It's a one time vote.

Personally I believe the format for selecting team player awards is flawed and secondly the league needs to create a hard and fast rule around eligibility.    Imho, the vote should be made up of 3 components with equal weight....namely management, the players and the fans.   The selection should be balanced equally amongst the 3 parties.    As for the CFL creating rules around eligibility it should be decided between the league and the players association.    This format provides ownership to the selection process as well as the rules of engagement.

Wisdom speaketh. Yes but I'd suggest heavily skewed to the fans in the voting % so that the press can either own their decisions (and management)  as being contrary to the fans or in agreement but we wouldn't have to hear their virtue signalling garbage after their decision unless they were a decisive vote. 

And to be sure the PA/CFL/Owners should resolve this issue and as quickly as possible because what will be the next step - denying a player like Harris a place in the Hall of Fame because of one positive test and minimum suspension? Better lay the criteria down for that as well because there will be members on that selection committee who think like the three stooges here.

Jeff Hamilton wrote in his explanation in yeaterdays Free Press that he's the president of the FRC and will be working with the CFL and CFLPA to have a rule that prohibits players who test positive for PEDs  not being eligible for post season awards.

Nice of him to grandstand to get attention. His work certainly isn't garnering him any notice.

If these reporters want to do something useful why don't they ask what is random about a system where one player gets tested more than others?

He's had over 3 years to bring this up and get it on the books - since 2016 when Brandon Banks was suspended for banned substance and was still nominated as the Eastern Conference's candidate for Special teams player honours.

Go see my post with the probability math from the week he announced his suspension.  What happened is unlikely, but certain possible.

Maybe the system should be tweaked so that every player will be randomly (i.e. random time) tested once, with an additional test for say 100 players that is completely random (time and player).

It's mathematically fine AH is tested 3 times in 1 season, but a bit annoying when the guy next to him gets tested 0 times in 5 years.  Make everyone get tested once, and then the chance of being tested twice or three times goes down commensurately.

Is there anything in the players contract or in the CFL that says players have to talk to the media, this would be the time to walk away from these guys. Let the media talk to the coaches and players walk past these guys. Maybe if they have nothing to take back to there jobs , their bosses might have a talk to them.
