I know he's written about HOF voting and talked about arguments that he's made to the panel in favor of certain Broncos, and I think I remember him talking about who he's voted for or something in articles he's written... so yes, I think...

Aha!! Found the article I was thinking of:

http://www.denverpost.com/broncos/ci_6546517

He talks about his experience on the HOF committee (17 years) but then says:

I'm no longer on the committee- because I was working in New York in 2006 (and there was a sentiment among HOF officials that there would be too many voters from New York) and because when I returned from New York, The Post had instituted a policy prohibiting writers from serving on Hall of Fame committees, and a Rocky Mountain News reporter replaced me.

As of a few years ago he was. I remember because the whole lack of Broncos was being discussed and Woody was essentially blamed partly for this. Apparently, he doesnt take it seriously, he does a poor job at making a case for players, and he even shows up to the meetings drunk sometimes.

I cant remember where that came from so I cant say how accurate all that is.

Not about Woody per se, but always worth posting.

I ran into Woody in the stands at Elway's induction before the ceremony. He seemed pretty happy that day.
