Yes, he did vote for DT, but DT didnt make his personal top 5.

I think, in the interest of full disclosure, here's how I voted in Saturday's Hall of Fame balloting. The two Seniors candidates, Bob Hayes and Claude Humphrey, get yea or nay votes. I voted yes on Humphrey, no on Hayes. (Shows my influence. Hayes got the requisite 80 percent for entry, Humphrey did not.) The 15 modern-era candidates get whittled to 10 first, then to five, and then we vote yes or no on the remaining five. My final 10 were Cris Carter, Richard Dent, Russ Grimm, Randall McDaniel, Shannon Sharpe, Bruce Smith, Paul Tagliabue, Derrick Thomas, Ralph Wilson, Rod Woodson. (I eliminated Dermontti Dawson, Cortez Kennedy, Bob Kuechenberg, John Randle, Andre Reed.) My final five were Carter, Smith, Sharpe, Wilson and Woodson. Then I voted yes on all five finalists: McDaniel, Smith, Thomas, Wilson, Woodson. I like the five-man modern class. Though I didn't vote for Hayes, I understand his appeal and am happy for his family and for everyone who supported him; there were certainly a lot of passionate people for him. My opposition centered around the fact I never had it proven to me that he was a singular player in NFL history. Homer Jones has long since been forgotten, but compare his first five significant years to Hayes' first five significant ones (1965-69) and tell me how Hayes is a much better player.

I hate Sharpe. And King didn't vote for Thomas for his final 5, even though he agreed on the final five. Fuck him. I'm going to neg rep him.... anyone know his name on Chiefs Planet?

Fuck Shannon Sharp, Fuck Chris Carter and Fuck Peter King.

Carter is a whiney bitch. I'll bet dollars to doughnuts that both him and Sharp won't make it next year either with Rice and Tim Brown being eligable....Here's hoping anyway.

I'm not sure Tim Brown entering 1st ballot while Carter missing out a 3rd time can be justified.

Tim Brown
17 seasons - 1094 receptions, 14,934 yards, 100 TDs, 9 Pro Bowls, 12 Playoff games with 0 SB wins

Cris Carter
16 seasons - 1101 receptions, 13,899 yards, 130 TDs, 8 Pro Bowls, 2-time 1st team All-Pro, 14 Playoff games with 0 SB wins

3 Super Bowl rings help, I'd think.

The best TE's in history waited as little as 4 years to get in and as much as 14 years. I'm talking Winslow, Newsome, Casper, and so on.

Possibly, but 3 SB rings shouldn't be the difference in determining if past drug use matters for one guy and not the other.

Without the jewelry Irving isn't a HOF. His stats are underwhelming.

I agree.

But that's what the committee looks for, right or wrong.

The HoF voters have always favored good players on Super Bowl teams more than great players with zero rings.

Thats just the way it is.

Yep - as flawed as it is. A Super Bowl is a team accomplishment. The HOF is an individual accomplishment and should be judged as such. Oh well.

Agreed regarding Sharpe. I don't have a problem with Carter, but his eyebrows should keep him out of the HOF.

Next year will be interesting... Rice and Emmitt are up, both the all-time leaders across the board for WR and RB.

Sharpe deserves to be in Canton and at some point will be enshrined, same for Tim Brown and Chris Carter.

LOL! I didn't realize that he was drafted as a WR... at least it explains why he was so terrible at blocking. And you do gotta give him some rep for making it as a 7th round pick...
