this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Twitter He's right... makes it tougher for some of our beloved Saints to make it. But it should be tough, not a right of passage after a certain amount of time has passed....

Yep ...

Men who revolutionized the game. Game changers. Not the "very good".

I wonder if Prime was referring to Leroy Butler from this recent class?

I had to google Leroy Butler. Forgotten who he was.
100 out of 100 football fans will know who Deion Sanders is.
Leroy Butler, maybe 25/100. That should should be some measuring stick,

MLB HOF is too anal
NBA HOF is way too inclusive
NFL HOF is about right, but in a bit of danger of going toward the NBA

Maybe Deon should be in a hall by himself.

Re: Deon Sanders Has A Blunt Comment About The NFL HOF

A lot of stuff works like this. In College Deion Sanders won the Jim Thorpe award as college football's top defensive back. Deion may actually live up to the name Jim Thorpe as an elite multi-sport athlete who also played pro baseball and excelled at track in college. But half the names alongside Deion as Jim Thorpe award winners couldn't even hack it in the NFL. If you think the Hall of Fame is bad, consider that Gerod Holliman, a 7th round draft pick who was cut in camp, spent 6 months on another practice squad, and washed out of the NFL has his name alongside Jim Thorpe and Deion Sanders.

There is no NBA hall of fame.

He really could. He was that great. I started playing football at 4 years old (1994) because I wanted to be like Deion Sanders. I played cornerback, a non glamour position at the time, because I idolized Deion Sanders. Dude is the GOAT. Not to mention the fact he came to crime riddled Jackson, MS to coach and invest into a HBCU, dude is a true legend.

Correct. Just like there is no NFL Hall of Fame.
