It looks like we have to change our logo again! When we began our website, Alice Cooper “represented” the Rock and Roll section of our logo of a musical icon snubbed by the Hall of Fame. As Cooper got in, we changed it to Rush. We are happy that we will be changing it again! As you are aware, the newest class for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is out, and to us (and many others we are sure), Rush has finally entered the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This was the first year that they were…
We would like to congratulate the newly announced International Boxing Hall of Fame Class of 2013. It is headlined by the late Arturo “Thunder” Gatti who died a few years ago under what remains unusual circumstances. The Italian born, Canadian raised pugilist won the IBF Super Featherweight and WBC Light Welterweight straps and four times was in the “Fight of the Year” Gatti is joined by five time World Champion, Virgil Hill, who won a Silver Medal for the United States in the 1984 Olympics and defended the Light Heavyweight Title 20 times.

Minnesota Vikings Punter, Chris Kluwe has never been shy with his opinions. He wrote “Vote Ray Guy” on his jersey patch that commemorates the Hall’s 50th anniversary. Guy, who has been universally labeled as the greatest punter ever never, got into the Hall despite being a semi-finalist multiple times. In fact, there is no football player who was strictly a punter who has been enshrined in Canton. Kluwe called the Hall of Fame a “sham” and added that he would not “support a Hall of Fame that doesn’t have a punter in it”. He went on to say that sysyem…
  As you have noticed, we have added the 2014 and 2015 Basketball Futures. Well, onward and upward here at notinhalloffame.com and we have now uploaded the 2016 group. Now granted, this is not a very large one as we only have two players (like 2015) who will be eligible that year for your consideration.

  It seems every Baseball Hall of Famer has a position on PED users for entry to Cooperstown.  Of course, with this year’s ballot, can we really be surprised? Recently Barry Larkin, who was inducted last year, told the Associated Press that “If you cheated you made a decision” and did not deserve to get in.  He was specifically referring to Sosa, Clemens and Bonds who are on this year’s Hall of Fame ballot and have been directly linked to Performance Enhancing Drugs.  The former Cincinnati Reds star is not alone.  Yesterday, Andre Dawson, who was himself inducted in 2010,…
We would like to congratulate Tom Cheek for entering the Baseball Hall of Fame posthumously for his work as the Toronto Blue Jays play by play announcer on radio. Cheek called the first 4,306 regular season game for Toronto and has the signature call of “Touch em all Joe! You’ll never hit a bigger home run in your life” when Jays’ outfielder, Joe Carter belted the home run that cemented Toronto’s second consecutive World Series in the mid 90’s. Cheek is the winner of the Ford Frick Award for Broadcasting Excellence. This award reminds us how much the Baseball Hall…

Today the Pre-Integration Committee (from Baseball’s beginnings to 1947) has announced that there will be three new members to the Baseball Hall of Fame. To become elected, the nominees on the ballot, which contained six former players, and four non-players had to receive at least 12 of 16 (75%) votes to enter. Of the three selected, only one was a player. That was Deacon White, a barehanded Catcher in the 1870’s. White twice won the Batting Title and was a three time leader in Runs Batted In. He was ranked #30 on our notinhalloffame baseball list. White will be joined…
