Best of the decade: CFL selection process determines top players, coaches from 2010-2019

After five months of fans casting ballots, the CFL celebrated the premiere players and head coaches of the past 10 years (2010-2019) with the first-ever All-Decade team.

At the turn of the decade, 3DownNation used a fan vote alongside expert analysis to determine our team of the decade.
