The Pro Football Hall of Fame is a joke

13 posts in this topic

Cris Carter was not "selected" to the hall of fame.

Is there a "2nd best EVER at their position" player in NFL history that wasnt a first ballot hall of famer.

This is wrong and may the voters all burn in hades.

I think Carters attitude the last couple of seasons he played really struck a nerve for some of the writers/voters. I think some of the writers are starting to place more emphasis on a players last impresion before hanging up the cleats than the overall accomplishments on the field. I can see both sides of this and i think maybe there would be some good in keeping a players ego in check if he truley wants to be considered a hall of fame caliber player. In my humble opinion a hall of famer SHOULD be judged by BOTH his career stats as well as his actions off the field or on the sidelines.

Attitude? Ego?

Michael Irvin is in the HOF. With inferior stats.

The voters are a joke.

Ivvin is in the hall of fame? didn't know that, he's not half the reciever Carter was. Just goes to show how important a super bowl win and where you play is. Monk was awfully good though.

Was watching inside the NFL and Peter King was saying a lot of the voters were looking at correcting the wrongs of not putting a lot of folks through. I think CC shoujld have got in the first time though.

Its a crock how they select for the hall of fame. PRESS writers, not athletes, coaches or fans, writers. What a joke! CC was the best, I'd take him on my team ten times before I dropped down to coke-head Irvin!!!

Cris Carter was way overrated. No superbowl rings and just another wide receiver.

Buddy Ryan said all he could do was catch touchdown passes, sure could use a few these days. Vikes should consider him as a mentor to some of our young recievers.

I'd say he's a tad bit better than James Lofton.... I agree that his last 2 years of antics may have soured his chances. I'm sure Jerry Rice will make it in his first year of eligibility. Carter will be there eventually.

Really, all sports are a joke already. Nothing is about the game, its all money & marketing.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.
