To expand on Matt C.'s point, when the NCAA men's basketball tournament was 32, there were howls over the exclusions. Increasing the field to 64 didn't stop the howling about exclusions, and now that it's 68, it's still the same. If Cooperstown had only 100, there'd be controversies over who's in and who's out, and if it was 300, the controversies would still be there. Of course, it would be over different players, but the controversies would remain. Of course, if the selections to Cooperstown, mostly by various versions of the Veteran's Committee, hadn't made so many significantly below the borderline picks, we wouldn't have so many controversies.
