    Dent, Grimm, Guy, Hickerson, Irvin, Kuechenberg, Monk, Derrick Thomas, Thurman Thomas, Wehrli, and Zimmerman have all been finalists in previous years. This means that Dean, Reed, Sanders, and Tippett didn't even make it to the final round in prior years.

    It's easy for someone to say there are people who should be in there already, but they don't get a vote. The writers who vote on this have felt in years past that group of players weren't good enough to get in and it's their votes that count, not ours.

    I'm not the only one that thinks it's potentially a weak class. Zimmerman, who does get a vote, wrote this article last summer:

    "Weak '07 class could open door for recent also-rans"

    Ok, I did see that after I posted, I guess I'm looking at some of the guys who have been passed over before as strong candidates, but as you said, my vote doesn't count for much

    I don't get a vote either, but do have an opinion. And it doesn't count for much either. Not even at home, but all the rest of you married guys already know how that is.

    And once again shows what a tool he is, when he says Bruce Matthews will be weakened by the fact that Munchack and Moon already made it in... So, you're going to pass on Bruce for this honour and recognition of individuals, because he played for a bad team who already have 2 in the Hof????
