Meanwhile, the HOF announced a "proposed change to its selection process that would take the selection of contributors out of the hands of its 46-member selection committee made up of media members and put that in the hands of a contributors committee in the future" (CANTON REPOSITORY, 8/2). This is "good news for the Hall of Fame hopes of contributors who have been voted down recently," including former 49ers Owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr., late Browns and Ravens Owner Art Modell and former Commissioner Paul Tagliabue (PROFOOTBALLTALK.com, 8/1).
