    I think that definition of a hall of famer is way too lax. It should be, "is this player clearly among the top 5 of all time who played his position?" If he is, then you have to decide which player gets dropped out of the Hall of Fame to make a spot for him.
    I like that but we'll need to empty pretty much all of the HOFs if it's enacted

      I like what jmike is saying, but she just isn't going far enough with it (give her a break -- she's a woman). There should only be one player from each position, and when someone usurps the incumbent HoFer, the guy leaving the HoF is obligated to kill himself within 36 hours of the new candidates induction.

      Now we're getting some traction. Can we start with the baseball HOF since that's the one that is stocked with the most mediocrity?

          Based on what streams?
          I don't really think it matters anymore since album sales have been down since the 1990s. Even digitally people are more likely to pay for a song they want than a whole album.

          Pluuusssss who cares about album certifications. it's not like anyone bases their tastes on which album went double platinum.

            Any streaming service. Spotify, Pandora..maybe even You Tube.


            Because some idiot in Iowa might go double, triple platinum over a dumbass song. You already know how ****ty music is nowadays. For example, Nicki Minaj, whose album only sold 600K thus far, even though it came out in the beginning of last year, is now platinum. Justin Bieber's albums are probably DIAMOND. That's ridiculous.

            It's cool for indy artists, but ****ty for artist who dgaf about music, they just want a hit.

              hmm....that's weird. It's not as if people are paying for Spotify and Pandora streams really...so the income has gotta be tiny in comparison to direct album sales via CD or itunes or whatever....

                  I LOVED that stuff.

                    AC2 was literally the 2nd game. Instead of Altair being the main character, it was the Italian kid, Ezio.It took place in Italy obviously. Rome, Florence, etc. He was featured also in Brotherhood, and Revelations. Then in the AC3, the character was the native kid? I didn't play that one.
