Its a shame George Young wasn't selected. For being able to turn the Giants from a Bengal-esque situation in the late 70's to building a strong team in the 80's deserves Hall of Fame admittance.

Attaboy James Lofton! Sure, he couldn't catch a thing at the end of his career in Green Bay. Sure, he got accused along with Mossy Cade of doing some bad things to girls at The Top Shelf.

But still...first dude ever to catch NFL touchdowns in 3 decades, so many 1,000-yard receiving seasons...dude is a legit legend in Packer history. Well done, Lofton.

Now be a man, take your place on Lambeau's ring of honor, and go into Canton as a GREEN BAY F'N PACKER.

Since players have busts, rather than plaques, people don't actually go in as a member of a particular team do they?

I hope to God Allen doesn't go in as a Raider.

i thought they did, because people would come back just to retire with a certin team. Art Monk will always be remembered as a redskin, but his final game was played as an eagle. i think he played his final season there. but he came back and signed with the skins and then "retired" just so he could be remembered as a skin, the last team he signed with.

For the football Hall of Fame, I believe that a player is inducted as a member of the team for which he played the most seasons. So, Lofton will be a Packer, and Allen (to his chagrine) will be a Raider. However, since the bust is just that, there's no great designation on it (i.e., a logo) to specify the team. Only Mike Haynes, who spend equal time in his career with the Raiders and Patriots, had to "choose" a team.

In Lofton's case, since he will be inducted as a Packer, it means he will be added to the Hall of Fame ring at Lambeau Field.

I thought all inductees got to choose what team to come into the Hall as.

In football you go in as a player with no particular team affiliation on your bust - one day retirement contracts have nothing to do with that.

In baseball the HOF decides which team's cap you wear - the player gets to make a pitch for the team he wants but it is not the player's decision. Recent case, Gary Carter wanted to go in as a Met but the HOF decided he will an Expo.

and Art Monk should have gotten in - the West Coast Offense and the proliferation of passing nowadays have unrightfully lessened his accomplishments.

Are you sure about that? I can't believe the HOF would have let Winfield pick the Pads (and a front office job to boot) over the Yankees. It still feels like we bought that HOF spot to me.



Your analogy is similar to:

"They already have cars that you can drive, why not blenders?"
"I can already write with my hands, why not my pancreas?"
"They already have beef that I can eat, why not granite?"

-- my new favorite quote from Slashdot comments.

The Baseball HOF recently changed their policy on which hat they wear on the plaques, with guys like Wade Boggs threatening to go in as a Tampa Bay Devil Ray.

From each Hall's web page:

Football HOF
Q: Is A New Hall Of Fame Member Enshrined As A Member Of A Team?
A: Obviously, teams take great pride in the accomplishments of individuals who have been a part of their organization. Often individual teams and even the Hall of Fame will list enshrinees according to the team or teams on which they spent a significant period of time. An enshrinee, however, is not asked to "declare," nor does the Hall of Fame "choose" a team under which a new member is enshrined. When elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, an individual is recognized for his accomplishments as a player, coach, or contributor.


Baseball HOF
Who decides what team logo will be used on induction plaques?
The choice of which team's logo appears on a player's plaque is the Hall of Fame's decision. The logo selection is important from an historical standpoint and the Museum has a responsibility to properly interpret the game's history. Visit our Hall of Fame plaque section to see the plaques of your favorite Hall of Fame members.

So I was half right.

Vince Young (sports.espn.go.com) is the NFL 2006 Offensive Rookie of the Year. DeMeco Ryans (sports.espn.go.com) is the NFL 2006 Defensive Rookie of the Year. It would have been a travesty had VY not won that award. Of course, I'm extremely biased.
