It would be helpful to know who is already in it, in order to know who to vote for.

I assume they all four surely must already be 14.1 HOF members, so someone needs to redo that page of the website to correct this. I also find it hard to believe "The Miz" did not make it until last year.

It’s been goofy every year. I seem to ask the same basic question every year.

Danny Barouty is in. Great player, but for Danny to get in before so many players? Embarrassing.

Mike Sigel! It's nice to see that Steve Mizerak finally got in last year. He's only the greatest Straight Pool player of the modern era. Sigel is second.
Lou Butera would be another good choice, since he could beat most of the guys who are in there.

So I am correct here? Cranfield, Sigel, Murphy, Butera and Hohmann are not in this so called 14.1 HOF yet, but Hunter and Margo are? Sorry, but it makes it kind of difficult for me to give much credibility to this organization when considering these glaring omissions up to this point in time.

As we discussed last year, Barouty is in this Hall's "Unsung Hero" category rather than their "Greatest Player" category. And there is certainly lots of room for debate as to what should be (have been) the order of induction in both categories.

And repeating what I wrote last year -- I had problems from the start with the actual existence of Dragon's hall of fame. But I kind of made my peace with it because it has, and will, lead to honoring some of the guys who have been important to 14.1 but who will not make it into the BCA HOF.

Your last sentence would make some sense, only if none of the members of this 14.1 HOF were in the BCA HOF, which however is not the case. That is what's so confusing about this.

I second you on Cicero Murphy! He beat Mosconi in his last tourney appearance in Los Angeles back in the 60's. What about Joe Balsis, surely he must be in there!

Well, I don't think it would be sensible to have a separate 14.1 HOF that was only for guys not in the BCA HOF.

This separate 14.1 HOF will eventually (if this effort survives) include all the greatest 14.1 players plus the slightly lesser players and other guys who were important to the game but probably will not ever make it into the BCA HOF.
