#3672569 2014 Poker Hall Of Fame Nominees - Daniel Heads The List

I disagree with Daniel here (I mean in the relevant blog entry), and that's very rare.

I believe, and think Doyle does too (he did say "ALL the criteria"), that players should be subject to rule #6 as well:

"Or, for non-players, contributed to the overall growth and success of the game of poker, with indelible positive and lasting results."

I don't say that to get rid of anybody, but players who satisfy the first five, PLUS the sixth? Well I think they deserve it more.

And IMHO that includes Daniel.

ETA: Why do I think rule #6 should apply? ETHICS. Pure and simple. The HOF should endeavor to promote and maintain a high level of public trust, in an effort to protect the game and its image, and encourage new players into the game.
