    Just in case anybody missed it:

    We'll start with the BBF HOF in mid December 2016, then BOB around Christmas/New Year's 2016/2017, and finally in mid January 2017, we'll do the AIR project. I hope to start each project late in the week for a couple of days to make sure there are no missing candidates, then start voting about noon on a Saturday, and run the election for two weeks. I'm hoping that spreading them out will avoid an overwhelming deluge of project voting like we got this year.

    Since we're at the bare minimum of six for players and don't even have that for contributors (we have five, and thus no one could be elected without another voter), I'm extending this election to Monday February first at noon.

    But this election is based on ranking people. A special election for Frank doesn't fit. It wouldn't be the BBWAA, either, but the lords of Cooperstown and their haphazard ways. I'm not interested in replicating that. I expect him to make it soon enough--and while it's a glaring error, it points out how careless all of us have gotten. I happen to think we could use the wake up call if we care about these projects. I intend to see it through my way.

    Doesn't "killilea" the issue so much as delays it.

He seems pretty significant to me.

    Here are my contributors:

    1. Henry Kililea
    2. Barney Dreyfuss
    3. John Heydler
    4. Ernest Lanigan
    5. Grantland Rice
    6. William Wheaton

    I've listed 6 in case Kililea isn't allowed. I've got Wheaton down a bit from most, as he apparently went back to cricket in 1847/1848, so I have a bit of doubt if he was a prime mover or not. Involved for sure, but not sure if he was a chief cog or not.


    I just noticed not one of my top 5 even made one other list. I'm so out of it...

    I'm not stunned I missed him, but I am that not only I missed him, but nobody called me on it until now.

    Following up: Got to look at the spreadsheets--this one has six votes now, so it will survive.
    I think we all assumed he was already elected. He'd shoot to #1 on my ballot if you do want him to be eligible this time.
