But technically, Griffey isn’t a Hall of Famer yet and won’t be until the induction ceremony this summer. I also like seeing how probable inductees do in the voting here.
Griffey may have finished fifth in total votes, though he’s the only player of the 25 to have 100 percent of his voters say he belongs in the Hall of Fame. Griffey also got the most votes saying he belongs in Cooperstown. Neither of those things affects Griffey’s ranking in this project, but they befit one of the most beloved players in baseball history.
The NFL operated in a two-conference system from 1933 to 1966 , where the champions of each conference would meet in the NFL Championship Game . If two teams tied for the conference lead, they would meet in a one-game playoff to determine the conference champion. In 1967 , the NFL expanded from 15 teams to 16 teams. Instead of just evening out the conferences by adding the expansion New Orleans Saints to the seven-member Western Conference, the NFL realigned the conferences and split each into two four-team divisions. The four division champions would meet in the NFL playoffs , a two-round playoff.  The NFL also operated the Playoff Bowl (officially the Bert Bell Benefit Bowl) from 1960 to 1969. Effectively a third-place game , pitting the two conference runners-up against each other, the league considers Playoff Bowls to have been exhibitions rather than playoff games. The league discontinued the Playoff Bowl in 1970 due to its perception as a game for losers.
