I know Will has a ton of projects and there's no chance of this getting on the list before next year's HOF (i.e. release in say March so a lot of voters had time to watch it), but a strong say 10-15 Disc (if there's enough footage) British comp is something that could have a lot of impact.
30 disc is too much for people to weigh through.
5 discs might not be enough, depending on match length.
But a good 10 disc or so set might give a good overview. It would have to include the "best" representative stuff of Daddy and Haystacks as well to put those guys in context, and not totally sandbag them.
If not Will, someone who does sets akin to Will.
Get it to Dave, and ask Dave to circulate the e-mail address of the creator to potential British HOF Voters to track it down. I don't suggest doing it for free, and would probably recommend that Dave *not* send it to any voters who are in the business because you don't want some WWE'er to pass it along to McDevitt.
Anyway, I think that people like Breaks and McManus aren't on the radar for voters.
FWIW: I didn't vote for anyone British as I just don't feel knowledable enough about it yet.
There was a movement on the RIM boards about 3 years ago of trying to push the case of Mark Rocco. I knocked the following comp out over a weekend, and the idea was to try and get it out to as many voters as possible. No idea how many people saw it in the end (doubt many to be honest), but I personally sent a copy to Cornette (aswell as a couple of discs of Jim Breaks stuff as I thought he would get a kick out of him). A comp on the best stuff of Rocco, Saint, Breaks, McManus, Grey, Jones etc would be a good idea, the only thing is I don't know how much (if any) of Pallo is out there, there is nothing that stands out for Nagasaki, pretty much ditto with Daddy and Haystacks (although I haven't seen it in years, I remember a passable match that he had with Maeda).MARK ROCCO 'THE WORLD OF SPORT YEARS' (3 discs)
