    Why isn't Jim Marshall a member of the NFL Hall of Fame?

    This is something that I've never understood.

    Can someone explain to me why Jim "The Iron Man" Marshall isn't already in the NFL Hall of Fame?

    I expect him to eventually be inducted, but I don't understand why he's not already an NFL Hall of Famer.

    Because the media would rather suck up to the Cowgirls, Pukers, Stealers, Patsies and other teams besides the Vikings...buncha jerks!!!

    Mick Tinglehoff deserves to be in as well...A$$HOLES !!!
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    It's a total ripoff. There is a lot of people in the HOF who should be inducted wayyy after him!



    Thank you Josdin for the sig

    I've posted this before...I think it's a complete travesty that Jim and Mick aren't in the hall.
    I used to think it was because the Vikes lost 4 Super Bowls...but other Vikings have made it.
    Then I thought it was the drugs but Carl Eller is in....and if you wanna talk drugs then just look at L.T.

    That being said I don't recall anything involving Mick that would keep him out ..beats me :roll:

    ^Sorry, I didn't know there was already a thread about this topic.

    I'll read the other thread, and you can delete this one if you want.
