They didn't exist.

Hahah picked this book up for a dollar at a library sale. It is a pile of crap in terms of the ranking but I'm not after the rankings. I like how it gives a detailed profile of a bunch of players, nice to have that in print because nowadays a lot of them have been displaced from these lists and don't make it into top 50s or top 100s.

I agree with Fischer

But, I really wonder what changed to drop guys Fred Taylor, Joe Malone, Newsy Lalonde and Sprague Cleghorn from the list entirely.
They really did not play very well between 1984 and 1988

The version of this book which I purchased has pages 1-370 (which contain the top 100 list) but it's missing the pages after that.

I'd be particularly interested if someone can fill me in on the remaining sections, particularly these ones:

Honour Roll

Top Ten Greatest Defensive Forwards

Top Ten Greatest Defensive Dmen

Thanks

The lists from the '84 version of his book can be found here:

I think Honour Roll was just a list of Hall of Famers who didn't make his top 100.
