Not in Hall of Fame News

Well gang we have finally reached the point where we are taking the main list that we are known for and have been forced to revise it. With the selection of Alice Cooper, Neil Diamond, Dr. John, Tom Waits and Darlene Love, five new spots automatically opened. With votes tabulated, from us and from you; Rush has overtaken Kraftwerk and are this year's number one selection on our Rock and Roll List. In addition, we would also drop some from the original 500, in favor of the new batch of eligible artists. Three of which (Guns N' Roses, Soundgarden and…
Check back as we are in the process of revamping our extensive Rock and Roll section. We are removing the recent inductees, and adding those now eligible for the upcoming year. We look forward to unveiling the new list shortly!!!!

Don Kirshner 1934-2011

Today the music world lost Don Kirshner who passed away of heart failure. Kirshner was a music producer who was known in the industry as "The Man with the Golden Ear" and was instrumental in discovering many Singers and Songwriters. Perhaps, to most of us, Kirshner was important for the producing of "Don Kirshner's Rock Concert" Television Series, which featured the top Rock and Roll acts of the day. Although Kirshner was mocked for his deadpan delivery as the program's host, Rock fans were thrilled to see the biggest stars of the day actually perform their music as opposed to…

Trevor Hoffman Retires

With a Major League leading 601 career saves, Trevor Hoffman is calling it a career. There is a very good chance that this is a mark that will be broken soon, as Mariano Rivera stands 41 saves behind and has not yet shown any signs of slowing down. Whether or not Hoffman's record is broken he had a career that few can match. Hoffman was a seven time All Star who twice led the League in Saves, and finished second five times. He spent sixteen of his nineteen years with the San Diego Padres and twice was the runner up…
Our #3 Selection for the WWE Hall of Fame, Shawn Michaels was announced this evening as the first inductee to the 2011 WWE Hall of Fame Class. This should not come as a surprise to anyone as he retired this past Wrestlemania and left in good standing with the WWE. We will not remove Michaels just yet from our rankings, as we will await the next group of inductees, but rest assured rankings will be altering soon. Congratulations Shawn!

New Logo!

As you have seen, The Notinhalloffame logo is made up of four images, representing Rock and Roll, Baseball, Hockey and the WWE. Initially, we selected Alice Cooper to be the musical representative. With his impending induction, we are removing Alice from the logo. In its place, we have selected the Canadian triumvirate of Rush who has a strong contingent of fans pushing for their induction. Who will be removed next due to their induction?

Well gang, the votes are in Bert Blyleven and Roberto Alomar was elected to Cooperstown. In the case of Blyleven, the wait seemed excruciatingly long as he slowly had a case built for him on sabremetrics and longevity and he grew his support from 17.5 percent in 1998 to 79.7 this year. Many online campaigns have rallied around the pitcher’s cause and there are likely many smiling faces in Minnesota. With Roberto Alomar, he received a sizable 90 percent, which has to make people wonder what he delay was the year previous. Alomar is easily the best second basemen of…

Brett Favre Retires?

If Brett Favre is indeed retired, he is going out with a whimper instead of a bang. Stat wise, this has been the grizzled veteran's worst year ever and this coupled with his numerous injuries and texting scandals it is likely a year he wants to forget. It can be easily debated that Favre made a mistake coming back. Regardless, Brett Favre retires holding the bulk of the NFL Quarterback records and is usually in the discussion for the top ten QBs of all time. There should be little doubt that when eligible, he will vault to number one on…

Hockey List Updated!!!!

With the induction of Dino Ciccarelli it is time to look ahead towards 2011 and the next batch of eligible Hockey players. Needless to say, Dino is off the list, but we welcome three new men to our illustrious notinhalloffame.com Hockey list. Eligible for next year's class and entering our list for the first year is famed Goaltender, Ed Belfour, and the tall lanky Center who made his name known as a Canuck, Trevor Linden. As we much as we have mad respect for Linden, the odds are that the Hockey Hall of Fame will elude him. Thankfully, he has…
