    Re: Randle to be put in "Ring Of Honor"


    A great Viking, John Randle always gave his all, and that Alice Cooper face paint was awesome too. What a motor he had, I love it when a guy backs up his mouth with his play. Congratulations.

    One of my all time favorite players. It will be great to see him get in.

    Hopefully next year it's Geno Torretta

    Re: Randle to be put in "Ring Of Honor"

    Randle I am sure is actually crazy. Did anyone see him on pros vs joes? it was entertaining

    and about time they honour him. he did a lot of good stuff for our defense back in the day
    We're bringing purple back.

    Congratulations John, he was an awesome player and a terrific sportsman.
    Just in case a few of you didn't get to read the post about my crowning achievment in life: talking to John Randle on the phone at work...

    Just thought I'd relay an interesting story.
    I work for a very large insurance company and guess whose name pops up across my screen?
    John Randle.
    At first, I just thought it was a coincidence until I commented on all of the nice cars on his policy and he told me he used to "play professional ball".


    "Wait a minute, is this THE John Randle!?!?"

    He was a very nice and polite as I told him how much I used to love watching him sack QBs.
    I couldn't believe I was sitting there talking to one of my boyhood sports idols.

    There's no reason he shouldn't make the Hall, he has better stats than Sapp, who is considered a lock.

    Sapp has a ring. Otherwise I don't think he would be a lock either.

    yea and thats stupid.. i don't think a ring should define whether you get in a or not, screws over great players on bad teams (not saying that was the case with Randle, but yea

    They were both two of the most dominating DTs in the league during almost their entire careers.
