Not in Hall of Fame News

One day… One day we will attend the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony as it was a bar discussion about inductees (more so who wasn’t in) that was the genesis for Notinhalloffame.com in the first place.  But that day wasn’t yesterday and from multiple sources here is what we know transpired at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.   The show kicked off with Stevie Nicks performing “Stand Back”, which got the crowd on their feet only for their jaws to drop at that level when Don Henley came out on stage where the duo sang “Leather and Lace”.  One…
Regular visitors to Notinhalloffame.com know that we are slowly working on the top 50 players ever of every MLB, NHL, NFL and NBA team.  Once that is done, our plan is to then look at how they honor their past players and executives by way of retired numbers, franchise halls of fame etc.  As such, it is important to us that last night the San Antonio Spurs retired the #20 of Manu Ginobili. In what now has to be considered an absolute steal, San Antonio drafted the native of Argentina 57thoverall in 1999 and he would join the team in 2002 after…
In an interview with Hoops Hype, Tim Hardaway stated that the reason that he was not in the Basketball Hall of Fame was due to an interview he had with Dan LeBetard which was anti-gay. He had this to say to Hoops Hype: "Well, you know, the reason I'm not in is because of what I said in 2007 about gay people.  That's why I'm not in right now, and I understand it. I hurt a lot of people's feelings and it came off the wrong way and it was really bad of me to say that. Since then, I've turned…
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony is rapidly approaching and it remains the biggest Hall of Fame where many people who are considered for or are already in openly trash.  As such it is news to us when a musician who we think has a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame worthy resume has an opinion as to whether they should be in or whether they even care is news to us.  The latest person to have to discuss their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame credentials is RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan, who in an interview with Rolling Stone…

As we here at Notinhalloffame.com consistently work hard to create new lists we have to continuously update the ones that we have.  One of our main core lists, the Football List of those to consider for the Pro Football Hall of Fame has been updated.   The first step for us is to take out all of those who were chosen for the Hall.  This takes out Tony Gonzalez (#1), Champ Bailey (#2), Ed Reed (#3), Johnny Robinson (#7), Kevin Mawae (#16) and Ty Law (#28). The second step is to add those who are now eligible.  As we have a Football Futuressection that allows…
The WWE has announced that the Hart Foundation (Bret “Hit Man” Hart & Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart) will be inducted into their Hall of Fame.  This has been speculated over the last month and it was made official today. Both Hart and Neidhart joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1985 as part of the deal where Vince McMahon bought out Stampede Wrestling.  They were not paired together when they arrived as Neidhart was put with Mr. Fuji as his manager and Bret was a babyface character but within a few months they were a heel duo under the management of Jimmy Hart.…
