It may be the “Dog Days of Summer” and the sports world may not be at its most eventful, but that does not mean that we here at Notinhalloffame.com do not have some serious plans for the remaining hazy days of the season.
Coming soon will be the next Basketball revisions. We can tell you that a brand new #1 will be crowned as last year’s #1 & #2 (Gary Payton & Bernard King) were selected for enshrinement. Overall, eight new first year eligible players will be making their way onto our Basketball 100, two of which will be entrenched in the top five.
Once that is done, we will look to world of Hockey. Unlike Basketball, the #1 Selection (Don Cherry) remains, but four of the top ten were selected last month. With Dominek Hasek, Mike Modano and Peter Forsberg entering their first year of eligibility, a major reshuffling of the top ten will occur.
Once Hockey has been revamped, we are planning a retooling of the WWE List. It will expand to 300 with the addition of old school candidates that were not previously considered. Unlike the large sports, the WWE has consistently pushed in candidates who were outside our top 50. A top 300 is not as farfetched as you think.
Finally, a MAJOR new section is coming. We have been working on this for a few months, but it will be a separate Hall of Fame, created by us for all of you. We will decide the inaugural entry, but after that, it is all up to you. A bit of a tease, we want you think about your favourite sports “characters” of the last forty five years. Look for that in September.
We thank all of you for your support, and we look forward to growing the website together with all of you.
