    Jim Marshall-Hall of Fame ???

    It's Super Bowl time again,and it's the NFL's time to announce it's newest class for the HOF.And once again, Jim Marshall is on the outside looking in.How long will it take until the HOF honor's the greatest Viking,the NFL's TRUE iron man.His stat's are equal to many hall of famer's,and still he wait's.Why? Could it be no super bowl ring?That's what you hear alot from other fan's.You hear how the Dolphin's dominated the Purple Gang in Super Bowl VIII. Or how Art Shell was so overpowering that Marshall didn't have a tackle in Super Bowl XI.This kind of talk proves how you only know about him what you heard in the Super Bowl highlight film's that air on ESPN Classic! I once heard that ..." Cal Ripken Jr. is the Jim Marshall of baseball...", very true! I also heard that he can now only be inducted through the senior committee?If that's the case,who cares! Just get him in!! How many times have we heard his name mentioned in show's like Inside the NFL or on Primetime,and hear ..." I can't believe Jim Marshall's not in the HOF..."? It's just not right.

    Seniors Committee related articles:

    Apparently, nine VETERAN members of the overall 39-member Selection Committee form the Veteran's Committee...who they are is a mystery though.

    How Are New Enshrinees Selected?

    Any fan may nominate any player, coach or contributor who has been connected with pro football simply by writing to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The only restriction is that a player must have been retired at least five years before he can be considered. For a non-player, there is no mandatory retirement period, but a coach must be retired before he may be considered. Every nomination of an eligible candidate received will be processed and forwarded to the Hall of Fame’s Board of Selectors.
    We have 5000+ registered members here. Maybe an email campaign for Marshal from PPO would help. If they got 5000 emails asking that he be inducted it could maybe push them in the right direction. All we need is the correct email address to send the nomination to. :thumbright:

    Yeah. This pisses me off. I blame the East Coast media. This is one of the biggest travesties in football. I refuse to acknowledge any legitimacy in the Hall of Fame as a true measure of greatness until Marshall is in the Hall. Until then, it's a fraud in my eyes.
