I agree that the bigger problem is who holds the votes, but I think the cap at 10 players is also a problem. When HoF voting first started, the league was a fraction of the size with an equally reduced number of players. Now, voting isn't necessarily based as much on merits (if it ever was) as it is on math. Guys who didn't vote for Morris in years past might be shifting their votes his direction because of a perception that he's getting close. If he's the 10th vote on someone's ballot, it's coming at the expense of someone who might also be deserving based on merits.
I think the entire system needs to be overhauled, but I have serious doubts that anything will ever happen. The people who have the vote get just as much ink as their subjects this time of year, and I don't think they'd be open to a system that took any sort of power away from them.
