East coast bias guys. Don't be surprised by Frank , Akers, Ginn, Iupati etc, not making it. Gotta give preference to east coasters.
I have a similar thing with our winery. A couple wine writers have told me unofficially that our 92 pt Cab/Syrah would have been 4-5 pts higher if it were from Napa, not Paso Robles. Face it, regional biases are just something we have to deal with. We don't have to like it, but we do have to deal with it. Unofficially, we all know Frank should have been on the list, and I could make a case for Iupati and Akers , too. But East Coast bias....ah, just take it with a grain of salt. Some schmuck from the E.coast doesn't have to tell us how good our guys were. WE know. The fact that this is supposedly voted on by the players should take the bias out, but I still believe the bias is there.
We should post our own list of the top 100. Screw those E.coast guys. Think about it. Who in the heck would want to live in buffalo, NY , new jersey, Indy, chicago, Cincy, St. Louis, Houston, Dallas, KC...you get the idea. If I lived in any of those places, darn right I would be jealous of a team in Calif (excluding CA politics and taxes).
