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.

      Welcome what are you training her for waterfowl upland or both? What is her name?

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.
