3. HoF members
4. Coaches & fomer coaches (a minimum of 10 years in the NFL)
Once the votes are tallied, you then have your current inductees.
Eventually, I think we'd all like to see the sportswriters role reduced, considering the atrocious job they are doing at the moment!
I think you're stretching your voting field too far by allowing people with 10+ years to vote - maybe in the future, but for now you're going to have WAY too many people voting on this.
Start with a 2/5 year trial of allowing HoF members to vote, then go from there!
