The game has evolved so much since these guys played and were selected that you cant just take them out. Back in the early days of the VC they were just trying to raise the number of hall of famers these guys may no longer be part of the best 215 or however many guys are in the hall now. But they may have been part of the top 50 or so when they were inducted.

It's like the Mafia once your in your in for good
