The Football Hall of Fame has announced their two Senior Nominees, and again controversy reigns in Canton. The first nominee is Curley Culp, who was a Defensive Tackle who captured six Pro Bowls for the Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Oilers. The undersized Culp, was the Defensive Player of the Year in 1975 and was First Team All Pro that year. He is joined by Dave Robinson, who was a three time Pro Bowl Linebacker for the Green Bay Packers on their first two Super Bowl Teams.
With all due respect to the aforementioned, this again leaves our number one (on our NIHOF Football list), Jerry Kramer again snubbed. Our regular visitors know that we have had the opportunity to speak with Kramer who may have been the classiest person we ever spoke too. As Robinson was a teammate of Kramer, we find his nomination a little curious, but we are hopeful that one day Canton will do the right thing for Jerry Kramer. Unfortunately, it wasn’t today.
