Hall Of Fame Voting

July 18th, 2009

Mike Florio, the creator, curator and overall guru of ProFootballTalk.com looks at how players are elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

In short, Joe agrees with Florio: let the media vote on inductees. Joe gets tired of hearing both players and fans whine that the fourth estate decides who gets in.

Look, those are the people who concocted the Hall of Fame. Those are the rules they established. If someone wants to start another Hall of Fame, go for it. Get a non-profit organization set up and raise the funds (with the director getting to pocket a nice sum) and have new induction ceremonies and criteria.

That’s what Ted Williams did in baseball.
