2069 ballot discussion
« on: December 19, 2016, 07:17:58 AM »
Results/voting discussed below. If you haven't voted yet, you may not want to read. Fair warning.

It seems crazy to me that 7 votes in, the only unanimous votegetter is Tony Bustamante. He was a good player, and obviously made my ballot, but I don't see how one could argue that he was better than Walt Geldof, Mark Sims, Stone Nichols, Denny Willis, etc.

Maybe someone submitted early?  Alphabetically, Bustamente is higher than those other guys.

That's a good point. You can build your ballot gradually by submitting and then coming back and adding to it.
