If people can't support for why they're voting for something, they shouldn't vote. I think he's doing more to preserve the sanctity of the HOF vote than by voting just to show he has a 'spine.'
Conviction is defined as a strong persuasion or belief. Fay just seemed wishy washy about the whole thing. His vote was prepared the night before, then he wussed out.
It's not that I laugh at the end result, but instead it was the way it was handled and then written about in a way to make Fay look holy that seems silly.
