Re: Strong first-year class highlights Hall of Fame nominee list

That's a good class

In my eyes though, the voters are a joke

Cris Carter was second only to jerry rice in every receiving category and has been snubbed for the past 6 years

A guy that scored a 130 TD's, over 1000 catches in his career and can't get in is pretty ridiculous to me

Cris isn't in because he was a jerk to the media during his playing days

But that's got nothing to do with the player he was, yeah he is a jerk, but does that mean Trent dilfer gets in because he was a nice guy?

No matter how much of a jerk he is, he was just as good if not better than jerry rice and he should be recognised for it

I was thinking today about how I wish Warren Sapp would have to wait like Carter has, cause he's kind of a jerk as well, nearly killed that guy on the field during a game with a blindside hit (and celebrated as the guy is on the ground not moving), his personal life is...well go read his wikipedia page but he's not what I would call an example for impressionable young men to follow off the field.

But on the field there's no denying in his day he was a man among boys.

I'm sure there's more than a few folks in Canton who have colorful pasts as well

I would say Strahan, Andersen, Sapp, Allen, and Ogden will make it. All in the first year? Probably not. Strahan and Allen most likely the first year. The others should make it eventually.

True it doesn't matter if he was a jerk but it does matter when you act like a jerk to the people that vote your fate into the HOF
