I agree. What the HoF people do, because they are idiots, is ignore a great player like Shields while at the same time elevating mediocre player because of the position they played or the team they played on. This simple does not make sense.

I'd rather have more oline guys in the HoF because, yah know, THEY DESERVE IT, rather than have a bunch of questionable players in the HoF because they played on good teams or they played a more glamorous position.
