Well here's how the Pro Football HOF selection process works.  There is an embedded link so you can see a list of all members of the committee which includes a write from each NFL city, & at large members like John Clayton & Len Pasquerelli.

www.profootballhof.com/hof/SelectionProcessFAQ.aspx

I like the fact that you start with a large pool of players & it goes through 2 rounds of cuts before a final pool of 15 candidates are nominated for election.  This would prevent players like Aaron Sele from even appearing on the HOF ballott, let alone receiving a vote!

A formula, from SABR, would be great to determine HOFers.

******* nerds.
I don't think anyone said anything about a formula, you stupid internet bully.

Yes, I'm aware that they have several research committees.    But, at the end of the day, I think we know SABR would develop a formula to "prove" their choices are worthy. 

It pains me to even vaguely agree with jtpops but there should be a mix.    I'd probably do it differently with LESS ballots, maybe 10, with players being chosen by groups.  The groups choices would form a single ballot.   Fans, current players, past players, writers, radio, TV, HOFers, stat nerds(like SABR) and couple more "worthy" groups.   Let each nominate 5-10 and admit anyone who's on 7 ballots.    If only one current player votes, his ballot is pretty damn important as it's 10% of the final ballot.  But that won't happen. 
This.

Read the thread before responding, stupid internet nerd.

"All I need to know can be found in a boxscore.  **** watching a game!!!"
Sure, that's not a straw man.

People love baseball stats because they love watching baseball. Knowing things like, well, I don't know, maybe that Bernie Williams was no where near the offensive player that Edgar Martinez was, enhances the experience.

Do you go out of your way to be an *******?

I can only assume Mike thinks he is owed royalties whenever someone, "goes out of their way to be an *******."
