Red Right 88

In Cleveland, hope dies last


browns-fans-940-8colOn Feb. 2, the 46-member selection committee for the Pro Football Hall of Fame will meet to vote on this year’s class of inductees.

And there is a chance that the unthinkable may happen when the group gets together in New Orleans – they may actually vote Art Modell into the Hall of Fame.

The full list of the people on the selection committee can be found at the Hall of Fame’s website.

What follows is a list of the Twitter handles that we could find for the various members of the selection committee. If you believe that Modell is not worthy of being enshrined in the Hall of Fame, it’s important to let the people voting on his candidacy know.

Tweet them with the hashtag #ArtOut. Send them the links to our column and Jeff Rich’s column from The Cleveland Fan as well as this column from Jim Kanicki.

Let them know, because there is a very real chance that sympathies lie with Modell, but the people making the decision must be reminded about what he did to Cleveland.
