    So you hate a long-time Vikings great as much as you hate the long-time packer Great?
    Something isn't right there.
    Did you see the word "Hate" in my post?
    I hate no one.
    I just don't like how he ground his axe over the whole Pepp thing.

    IMHO, that long-time Vikings great, should've respected the organization that gave him another chance instead of the doing the crap he's done of late.
    I respect Cris way to much as a player to allow his off the field mouth darken it.
    Cris is way too much of a trash talker and passionate to really listen to what he says.
    He's a bit annoying as a analyst because he's always interupting everyone

    Don't get me wrong, some of my fondest football memories involve him.
    My comment "Dead to me" could be taken as "I don't care if he makes it or not" kindof thing.

    I for one would vote for Rice this year as the WR candidate and not Cris.
    To many other good/deserving candidates to put two WR's in.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    I agree that Cris probably won't get in this year, but in the end Cris should get in.
    Although he had great hands, I think his ability to extend the sidelines was his most impressive skill, that deserves the HOF.

    Being paid by ESPN as an analyst and refusing to be a blatant homer?
    Yes, at times things he said are annoying, but its what he's paid to do.
    Keep in mind, the organization that gave him another chance doesn't have any of the same players, coaches or FO people that gave him another chance.

    Comeon, you know what I'm talking about.
    Being a Non-homer isn't it.
    He had an axe to grind and he ground it.
    For that I couldn't care less if he makes it.

    As to your "Who't there and who isn't".
    You might be right.
    Maybe the current regime feels the way I do which could explain his lack of support in his efforts to get into the hall.

    Do you even know how the process works?


    Carter has made the final 25 two times in two years of eligibility.
    He made the final 15 last year in his first year of eligibility.
    Each candidate has his resume for inclusion summarized by one of the two local voters in front of the entire voting panel (for the Vikings, that's Sid Hartman (ick) who does it).
    Then the voters vote.
    Last year, Art Monk was selected over Carter (it will be very difficult for 2 WRs to make it in one year) after many years of just falling "that much" short.

    Carter's broadcasting career has ZERO influence over any decision that anyone in that room makes.
    The biggest problem for Carter is that ancient Sid is trying to make his case.
    But Sid won't give up his vote until they pry it from his cold, dead hands.

    Do you?
    Who is his advocate? Probably the same advocate that wants to ensure he has access to the current team.

    Do I know how it works. Gimme a break. If nothing else, I can use google and wiki just like anyone else can.
