Not in Hall of Fame News

Rest in Peace, Bob Feller

Notinhalloffame mourns the loss of Hall of Fame pitcher, Bob Feller. The legendary hurler goes down in history as one of the greatest Cleveland Indians of all time and will be missed. His contribution to baseball will not be forgotten. Mr. Feller was 92 years old.
Well gang, the votes are in and like every year, surprises have occurred. First let’s take a look at who got inducted this year. Alice Cooper We at Notinhalloffame.com are thrilled with this induction and will be happy to have Alice Cooper leave our list. This was his first nomination, after being eligible for over fifteen years, and in many ways this feels like the committee is “righting a wrong”. However, a look at the other nominees may also point at Cooper being the true “Rock” representative of the list; a possibility that becomes increasing ironic considering the name of…

Congrats to Pat Gillick

Notinhalloffame.com congratulates Pat Gillick, who has just been selected by the Baseball Veteran's Committee for the Baseball Hall of Fame. It is well deserved, and we are happy that he got in, as many times the Veteran's Committee selects nobody.

Ron Santo (1940 - 2010)

Notinhalloffame.com is sad to learn of the passing of Ron Santo, our #11 Selection on our Baseball list. Santo may go down as one of the most popular Chicago Cubs of all time, and many of his fans have long considered his omission from the Baseball Hall of Fame to be an injustice. In his first year of eligibility, he recieved less than five percent of the vote and was thus dropped from the ballot; though he was placed back on five years later. His support grew, but in his final year of eligibility, he received 43.1 percent of the…

Congratulations to those who have been named semi-finalists to the Football Hall of Fame. Here is a quick look at these candidates:","Congratulations to those who have been named semi-finalists to the Football Hall of Fame. Here is a quick look at these candidates: 1. Marshall Faulk Our Number #1 Selection and entering his first year of eligibility, we have every reason to think that Marshall Faulk will enter the Hall of Fame in his initial try. 2. Deion Sanders Say what you want about his tackling skills, but “Neon Deion” made it cool to play Corner and was arguably the…
Sure, we are called "notinhalloffame", but the best way to put a Hall of Fame in perspective is to look at who is in. Take a look at the group is in, and ask yourself if they belong there or would you kick them out!

New WWE Lists

We have added more WWE lists to our growing countdowns. As we remain baffled as to just what the requirements for the WWE Hall of Fame we decided to put together three additional lists for potential Hall of Fame inductees. The first is our Celebrity Candidates. As much as we feel there shouldn;t be a celebrity wing in the WWE Hall....well there is one!. Since that is the case, and we don't agree with the ones they have selected, how about the ten that we have we come up with! We have also created what we call "Fringe" candidates, in…
It is the Hall of Fame ceremony, and we here at Notinhalloffame are very happy for Dino Ciccarelli; a man we thought whose clashes with the media as a player would prevent someone who can easily make a statistical claim to the Hall. Dino is the only male player to go in this year, but there are two other former hockey players going into the Hall with female players Angela James and Cammi Granato.I am trying real hard to care.This is not an indictment of their abilities as there is no doubt that both James and Granato are excellent athletes…
