Aside from being my favorite player of all time my wife got me an autographed Dt helemt for Christmas so I would really love to see him go.

I also have a picture of him tackling Elway for his 100th sack but he passed before I had a chance to get that signed.


The guys on the radio said he is head an shoulders above most of the people on the list.

Anyone?

noa

I think he'll make it. I've read about a lot of support for him from various sources.

I sincerely hope he makes it this year, and you are right... he is one of the strongest candidates this year (of course, he has been every year as far as I am concerned).

If Marino can make it DT should. Granted Marino went to a SB and DT didn't most of Marino's hype is all stat based.

Isn't this only his second year of eligibility?

Third. He should make it, but I think it may be a year or two away.

What you talkin about Willis? He should have been in the first time around.

Owning every significant record by a country mile will tend to generate hype.

I'm pretty sure that this is only DT's second year of eligibility, too, unless I had amnesia for a year or something. That's possible, though, since I wouldn't remember having it.

Or do you remember that you had amnesia? Or do you even know you have it in the first place?

Seeing as how we're coming up on the 6 year anniversary of his death, and that there is a five year waiting period once your career ends, I'd say you're absolutely correct RM.

This still doesn't rule out the amnesia, however.....

I don't disagree. I think he should have been a first-ballot...I just think it may be a couple of more years before it happens.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go slap Kimberly around for whining to Mrs. Garrett about how I nailed her friend the night of her sleepover party.

BTW- Don't you have an appointment at the bike shop?

Edit- He's listed for the 2005 semifinalists:

They also have listings for 2006 and 2007...this would be his third year.

7th anniversary. Feb 8, 2000.

2005 was his first year of eligibility. This is his third.

This website is a nice website where according to the bio his last year was 1999? i thought it was 2000..maybe the 99/2000 season. anyways the link is
http://www.profootballhof.com/hof/story.jsp?story_id=2285

My take on it is he should make it in this year. I think Michael Irvin should be in there too. I like Bruce Matthews too just because he was consistant for so long and was an iron man in my opinion.

The 99 season was over, he was headed to the airport to fly to St Louis to go to a Lambs playoff game when he crashed.
I don't want to see Irving make it. First of all he annoys the hell out of me on TV, which really doesn't matter. Secondly, how many times was he popped for coke?

Yep. IIRC, he played one game in the (calendar) year 2000. So technically, he played for the Chiefs in 3 different decades.

All of these HOFs can fug off. Like football not including DT-what a travesty-if he played for an East Coast team he would have been 1st ballot.

Big Mac getting excluded but Bonds will get in.

R@R Hall of Shame-letting in Disco acts.

They can all burn down for all I care.

Last year, I remember a lot of talk that HOF voters wanted Harry Carson to get in before they voted for DT. Now that he's in, hopefully Derrick will get the votes.

My gut says he gets passed over again since Carl will again send Gretz to argue the case.

Having Bob Gretz make his case to the voters really doesn't help. We should have Lanier, Posnanski, or even Herm or Carl doing that.

It can't be much longer, this year or next. I certainly hope it's this one.

This class is much weaker than the first two he was in. This is the year.

I think he makes it this year. The key is the competition and as many have said this is a weak class this year.

3rd times a charm.

I will be there at the induction ceremony if he makes it. I have never seen the HOF and I really want to, but I told myself I was going to wait till DT made it to go.

If he can't get in this year then he probably won't for a long time. It's not the best class.

Boy, I sure hope this is his year. Otherwise, it could be a long time, if ever, before it happens. And that would be a shame.

Whenever he makes it, I think I will make the trek to Canton to see it and the old timers there... :toast:

"Not put Derrick Thomas in to the Hall Of Fame? Are you kidding me?"
seriously though, this is an area Herm should excel at

Herm should do it as well.

We can capitalize on the whole Black Coach thing....

DT has the numbers this is his year in a weak class.

Peter King has the odds as:

3:1 -- Bob Kuechenberg, Derrick Thomas, Andre Tippett.

He has Thurman Thomas, Bruce Matthews, Paul Tagliabue, Art Monk and Michael Irvin ahead oh him.
