The Hall of Fame selection process this year came under fire with the selection of NFL Films founder Ed Sabol into the HOF.
With the intense scrutiny could change finally becoming to the HOF.
Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, who is one of the 44 member selection committee, addressed the issue on the problems of the selection process, according to Pro Football Talk. Bouchette went on to say that the process is in need of an overhaul and that the Hall of Fame is apparently listening as it has asked the selection committee for ideas on possible changes.
It is a start as there were just too many worthy member left out in the cold in former offensive tackle Willie Roaf, center Dermontti Dawson and wide receiver Andre Reed.
Bouchette revealed that a meeting took place in Indianapolis between other voters. Some of the suggestions by the members have been more transparency in regards to the voting, creation of categories so that people like Sabol won’t run into players and expanding the number of voters.
In the end, whatever the Hall of Fame decides to do is better than nothing as change has been long overdue.
