All of the lively debate last week about the possible 2011 Hall of Fame Class got me wondering what the Purple Row community as a whole thinks about this topic. Thoughts ranged from Andrew Martin's "Small Hall" preference to Jeff Aberle's exceeding the mean idea. Rox Girl also has her own thoughts about what qualifies as being a Hall of Famer and even I weighed in on the issue.
Now that we've talked at length about it, I want to know what Purple Row's 2011 Hall of Fame class would look like. The same rules will apply as the real Hall of Fame voting; a player needs 75% of the vote to get in, and if he doesn't get at least 5% approval, we drop him from next year's ballot.
There are three different ways you can vote.
1) Fill out this document, (Vote "Yes" or "No" next to each person's name) save it to your computer, and email it to me.
2) Just email me a list of people you think should be in the Hall. (I'll assume everyone not on your list is a "No" if you go with this option).
3) Give your ballot in the comments section of this post. (Choose this option only if you want others to see your ballot. I'll keep your ballot a secret if you choose one of the first two options)
Note: My email can be found by clicking on my username.
If you want to look at the career numbers of the players eligable, they can be found here.
I'll keep the voting open until January 5th when the real 2011 Hall of Fame results are announced. After that, I'll tally up the Purple Row ballots and we can compare the real Hall of Fame voting to ours.
Alright, start voting people!!!!!!!
