Not in Hall of Fame News

The Misfits are not members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, however this does not mean that they will not be there in some capacity.

For what it is worth, The Misfits are ranked #218 on our latest Notinhalloffame.com…

The more we add sections, the more we have to constantly update them. As such our Hockey Futures TBD have added some new entries. For those unaware, the Hockey section is the only team sport where we have a TBD (to be determined) section.  This is due to the Hockey Hall of Fame having only a three year period after a player has retired before he becomes eligible for the Hockey Hall of Fame.  This is why we look at players over 35 who are currently active in professional hockey and place them in a potential vote. Here are the…
