How a Change In Bylaws Might Bring Gino Cappelletti’s HOF Case to Voters

When the Pro Football Hall of Fame changed its bylaws last month to accommodate more seniors, one move to help them was overlooked. It has to do with closed-door presentations, and, normally, I’d say that’s not a big deal.

But with Thursday’s passing of Gino Cappelletti, I’ve changed my mind.

Under the new bylaws, seniors will be chosen in much the same way as modern-era players. There will be a preliminary list reduced first to 25 candidates and then to 12 – with all results made public. The only difference is that it will done by the senior sub-committee – now with 12 voters – and not all 49.
