But I see JO as a lock. Hopefully I can road trip to Canton to see him go in!

I have, and always will be upset with the League or whoever does the voting about the situation with Art Modell. There was never any reason in the world for that man to NOT be in the HOF for at least a decade now but, because the HOF is in Cleveland, he was passed over numerous times. It's shamefull really. That man did so much for the NFL over his lifetime, and IMO is disrespected by being put into the HOF post-humously.
I personally knew he would never get in there untill he was passed away. A real shame. I will be watching the induction to see just how classless people can be by boo-ing a legendary dead man because he "stole" their team.

Too bad the HOF is so close to Cleveland. Modell unfortunately will never get in due to the Cleveland fan base breathing down the selection committee's back. Ogden will make it in no problem though.
They'll vote him in this time I believe. Sadly, it will be an empty gesture of guilt. I hope it haunts them forever. Especially that one so-called journalist who has made it his life's campaign to keep Modell out. Ogden should have no issue making it in.
