I just took a look, check this comment:
"I had to do some research to find out who William Lee was, undoubtedly a great lifter (more accomplished than I ever will be), but to be voted second right now on this elite list is crazy to me. Maybee someone can enlighten me to what I am missing, but from what I read his lifetime best bench is 650 equipped @ 242, Jeremy Hoornstra beats that raw at same weight?! It also looks like he has been competing push / pull or bench only recently (with a 683 PB DL) , am I missing something here guys or is my information correct?"
This makes the poll lose all credibility, it sounds like he got his facebook friends to vote for him or something like that. There should have been some criteria to qualify for nomination.
