NFL & Hall of Fame
15 Finalists for 2016 NFL Hall of Fame induction was announced today.
Brett Favre seems to be the only slam dunk candidate. His induction is well deserved.
I have heard many writers - like Peter King from Sports Illustrated - that the inductions is purely based on what their accomplishments were and nothing else. Having said that, I have NO clue how a coach like Tony Dungy got selected to the finalists? How? He is a mediocre coach with a sub 600 record and a loosing record in the playoffs.
Dungy will certainly get inducted into the Hall of fame though his accomplishment pales in comparison to Jimmy Johnson (a 3 time superbowl winner) and even Mike Holmgren.
Oh, please for heaven sake, please do NOT throw in the race card here. If it is being thrown, are the Holmgrens and Johnsons are getting discriminated?
