Not in Hall of Fame News

One of our favorite baseball players of all time is not well. Former Expo and Met Catcher, Gary Carter has been diagnosed with new tumors on his brain. The Hall of Famer, had been fighting brain tumors for the past two years and the former eleven time All Star is clearly in the biggest fight of his life. We here at notinhalloffame are praying for his recovery.

MIke Martz Retires

We are reminded of the "Greatest Show on Turf" as its architect; Mike Martz has announced his retirement. We don't really see him in the Hall of Fame (unless they finally put in Don Coryell), but it would not surprise to see him reach a semi finalist status down the road.
Could we be busier today? The WWE has now announced that the Hall of Fame will be adding the Four Horsemen. Best as we can tell this means that Arn Anderson (#19), Barry Windham (#25) and Tully Blanchard (#41) are now going to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. What we are not sure of is what role Ric Flair has, or whether J.J. Dillon is part of it. Either way, this looks to be a loaded class. Much like our post with Edge, these wrestlers will remain on our list until post Wrestlemania when our revisions become…
Well that didn't take long. Adam Copeland....AKA: Edge has just been announced to the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2012. We had Edge ranked at number eight, and we remember his retiremnet speech on Smackdown where the crowd spontaneously chanted "Hall of Fame" to the WWE Superstar. For now, we will leave him on this list and we will remove him when we redo our list in April of 2012. Congratulations again.....well deserved!
Today is like our second Christmas. The Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York has made their annual selection for the Hall of Fame. We are very pleased to announce that our number two selection, Barry Larkin has been inducted to the Hall of Fame. The longtime Cincinnati Shortstop was the dominant player in his position for the National League and deserves this accolade. about the rest of the votes...... Jack Morris 66.7 (Our Rank: #25) This has to be considered a victoty for Morris supporters. He made a major jump from the 53 percent he was at…
The Football Hall of Fame has narrowed down their selections to fifteen finalists, many of which hold high ranks on our football list. In order of our rank, the candidates are 2. Curtis Martin, 3. Will Shields, 4. Willie Roaf, 5. Cris Carter, 6. Cortez Kennedy, 9. Dermontti Dawson, 13. Tim Brown, 14. Jerome Bettis, 15. Andre Reed, 16. Chris Doleman, 19. Charles Haley, 23. Aeneas Williams and 45. Kevin Green. Also up are Bill Parcells and Edward DiBartolo Jr. In addition there are two senior candidates in Dick Stanfel and Jack Butler. Notable omissions to us were Don Coryell…
In his final game for the Miami Dolphins, Jason Taylor went out a winner. The Linebacker ended his career with some impressive numbers. Taylor was selected to the Pro Bowl six times, a Three Time First Team All Pro, a member of the 2000's All Decade Team and was the Defensive Player of the Year in 2006. This loaded resume should place him high on our list when he is eligible, but he may not stay there long as this is Canton worthy.
Gang..... After a very long wait, we are thrilled to announce our first Basketball List. It was not an easy one, as followers of the Basketball Hall of Fame know that they factor in both the pro and college game. Our list takes that into consideration, but focuses primarily on male players. We hope you likje it, and take time to cast your votes!
We aren't kidding with that headline either....... Look at this group.... Jeremy RoenickMats SundinJoe SakicCurtis JosephBrendan ShanahanOlaf KolzigTeppo Numminen Gary RobertsClaude LemieuxBobby Holik Roenick, Sundin and Sakic are certified HOF contenders and the others could earn a spot on our list. We are working on our revisions soon..... Any thoughts gang?

Peja Stojakovic retires.

The NBA lost another superstar as sharpshooter, Peja Stojakovic has retired. At the age of 34, the Croatian leaves professional basketball as a three time All Star, and a three time European Player of the Year. He finishes with a 17 point career average and .401 career percentage from the three point line. We aren't sure if he is a Hall of Famer, but we think a case could be made.
