I would add that a Hall of Fame that does not include an Amateur (now deceased) with well over 1500 all age points, 12 or 13 titled dogs (if not more), at least one HoF dog, many Double Headers and a National Title among many other accomplishments in a long FT career, is not a HoF in my eyes.
In Roy's case a couple of years ago huge numbers nominating him seemed to
indicate he would go in. It wasn't to be for whatever reasons.
The drill has to change. What Roy & Len & others did for the clubs in Alaska
must be judged and rewarded on merit not diluted by the numbers and impact
of memberships of large clubs & circuits in the lower '48'.
A start to change - re-think/revise the criteria & process for selection; allow the
committee to make independent selections based on merit not numbers.
Finally, bring back the old timers committee so as to further right old wrongs -

I am very glad to see John Thomas on the list.

The "right decision"to a retriever is generally that decision which feels good or is the most convenient.So its the trainers job to teach the dog that what feels good is that which pleases the trainer.
