Re: Theismann Vs. Peter King...right now on ESPN Radio

Well, we'll find out Monk's fate tomorrow.

I'm hoping for the best, but expecting the worst.

Aikman, White and Madden seem to be sure things, beyond that though it seems the remaining guys are all on the fence and the HOF voters could go either way.

I heard John Clayton say he thinks Monk has a pretty good chance this year so we'll see.

Look - Monk is the easy case. There is no legitimate argument for him not being in the Hall.

However, if we're talking about changing the rules, then you have to think about how those changes will affect the lower-visibility skill players and, more importantly, the non-skill positions. How many OL/DL would be in the Hall if fans did the voting? How many fans remember the top 10 linemen from the league 10 years ago? Some, I'm sure, but I sure don't.
The ones who are making the decions know players from ten years ago....it just comes down to prejudice against certain players. Unfortunately, Art is on the receiving end.

I don't think I ever said anything contradictory to this statement.

Was just a general statement.
