Philosophical qestion ...

Postby eaglesrule » Sat Aug 04, 2007 11:36 pm

Now that the boomers are getting to retirement age, and the x and y's of th world are taking over ... It begs my question...

Do you think in the next 20 years, fantasy performance will cloud HOF voting at all?

IT may be stupid, but i am curious, as a lot of football and baseball is starting to get filtered through that prism.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

That's a good question. I think fantasy stats already pollute a lot of sports shows, like on ESPN's First and Ten, some random girl will come on and say something like "LT is a better running back than Frank Gore because LT had more TDs last year." I don't, however, think it will have anything to do with HOF voting, because the voters for the HOF is done by people whom know the game and know what's going on without looking at fantasy stats. It does bother me, though, when people who know nothing about football plays, strategy, talent, etc. go on ESPN and other shows and claim to be "experts."
