Not in Hall of Fame News

It seems that the more lists we create, the more we have to continue to update them.   That sounded pretty obvious didn’t it?  Of course, we have to, and we love it! Today, we have the unveiling of our 2021 version of the Notinhalloffame.com football list.  Only a few months ago, we expanded our list to 300, and this is the number that we are going to keep it firm at.  Last season, the National Football League celebrated its 100thAnniversary, and to coincide with the landmark, the Pro Football Hall of Fame added 15 new members, 10 of which were former players.  In…
Last night on WWE Backstage, it was announced that John Bradshaw Layfield will be entering the WWE Hall of Fame this year. After beginning his wresting career in 1992, Layfield signed with the WWE in 1995 as Justin “Hawk” Bradshaw, where the Texan was in full cowboy gimmick similar to Stan Hansen.  The character would see television time, but it was a lower-card gimmick that did nothing more than have a forgettable feud with Savio Vega.   In early 1997, Bradshaw became “Blackjack Bradshaw” and formed the new Blackjacks with Barry Windham.  The team went nowhere, and Bradshaw would be a single again,…
Yes, we know that this is taking a while! As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team.  We have a new one to unveil today, that of the Colorado Avalanche.  Debuting as the Quebec Nordiques in 1972 in the World Hockey Association, they would become one of the most successful teams in the league.  The Nordiques won the Avco Cup in 1977, and they would be one of four franchises that would be absorbed into the NHL in 1979.  Despite having some good players in Michel Goulet and Peter Stastny,…

One of our favorite franchise Hall of Fames is that of the St. Louis Cardinals, which was only established in 2014, but has quickly earned a place as a must-see for baseball fans. For the Class of 2020, the fan vote is now available, where the top two vote getters of seven former Cardinals will become part of the organization’s Hall of Fame.   Steve Carlton 1965-71.  Carlton would play the first seven seasons of his career with St. Louis, and he was a three-time All-Star while playing there.  Carlton helped St. Louis win the 1967 World Series, and he was a 20 Game winner in…
While politics and sports don’t often mix, it does occur, especially when the topic of Halls of Fame come up. 102 members of the U.S. Congress have sent a letter to the Baseball Hall of Fame, extolling the candidacy of Curt Flood, who could be nominated by the Veteran’s “Golden Days” Committee this December.   As a player, Flood was a three-time All-Star, seven-time Gold Glove recipient, and he would help the St. Louis Cardinals win two World Series Championships.  What made Flood more recognized is that in 1969 he challenged the reserve clause in Major League Baseball. Flood had asked the…
Didn’t this seem like it already existed? The Premier League will be launching a Hall of Fame, with two players to be inducted.  The EPL, which was founded in 1992, is considered to be the top professional soccer league in the world.  As the name suggests, only accomplishments made in the EPL will be part of the consideration.  Those who are inducted, will receive a personalised medallion. At present, there is an English Football Hall of Fame, which began operation in 2002.   We here at Notinhalloffame.com are ecstatic about this new Hall, and we can’t wait to see how it progresses. 
We were wondering how they were going to do this. The Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2020 is the largest of all-time, and it was announced that it will span over two ceremonies. The Regular Class will take place on August 8, coinciding with the beginning of the NFL pre-season. The Centennial Class will be inducted on September, 18, which will not receive the same national coverage. As such, this has angered some of the fan bases, who have hoped that their respective candidate wild receive their proper due. We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to again congratulate the…
While this hasn’t been confirmed by the WWE, it was reported by WhatCulture.com that Bret “Hit Man” Hart will be the one who will be inducting the British Bulldog into the WWE Hall of Fame this year. At one time, Bret and Davey were brothers-in-law, as Smith married Bret’s sister, Diana.  The two worked together often in Stampede Wrestling in Calgary, and when they arrived in the WWF together in the mid-80’s they wrestled against each other often in their respective tag teams, The Hart Foundation and the British Bulldogs. By the early 90s, both Hart and Smith were singles wrestlers…
In a recent TMZ Post, Darren Sproles, who retired last season said that he feels he is a Hall of Famer. That probably won’t happen. This is not a shot on Sproles, who played 14 seasons with stops in San Diego, New Orleans, and Philadelphia.  Despite what Deion Sanders said a few weeks ago, the threshold for enshrinement is very high.  A three-time Pro Bowl Selection, Sproles was a multi-faceted offensive dynamo. On the ground, he rushed for 3,552 Yards and 23 Touchdowns.  In the air, he caught 553 Receptions for 4,840 Yards and 32 Touchdowns. That gives him a very good total of 8,392…
