Not in Hall of Fame News

While Ring of Honor has seen better days, having announced they are moving forward without any contracted talents, they are still operating, and have announced they will be having their own Hall of Fame.  The first inductees have been announced, Mark and Jay Briscoe, the most successful tag team in the promotion’s history.

We love this day! Though, that does not mean, we always love the results. The Baseball Hall of Fame announced the results of the Class of 2022, and it ends an era of sorts as many of the controversial PED associated players are off the ballot. Let’s get right into it.

We here at Notinhalloffame.com thought it would be fun to take a look at the major awards in North American team sports and see how it translates into Hall of Fame potential. Needless to say, different awards in different sports yield hall of fame potential.  In basketball, the team sport with the least number of players on a roster, the dividend for greatness much higher.  In baseball, it is not as much as a great individual season does not have the same impact. Last time, we looked at the ABA Rookie of the Year.  This time, we look at the ABA All-Star Game…

The Islanders lost one of their great ones. Last night, Clark Gillies passed away.  He was 67 Years old. Gillies played most of his with the New York Islanders, first debuting in the 1974/75 Season, where he would be a two-time First Team All-Star and four-time Stanley Cup Champion.  A former captain for the Isles, Gillies was a do-it-all player, who scored, playmaked, and grinded, selflessly opened the ice for his other skill playing teammates.     Finishing his career with the Buffalo Sabres, the Left Wing had 697 career NHL Points. Internationally, he represented Canada in the 1981 Canada Cup. Gillies entered the…
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 San Diego Padres. Founded in 1969, the San Diego Padres have had their share of star players, but it has yet to result in a World Series win, though they have won the National League Pennant twice (1984 & 1998).   The team has lost far more Games than they have won but has a unique history, solid fan base, and…
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 Miami Marlins. Along with the Colorado Rockies, the Florida Marlins came into existence in 1993, although they have been far more successful than their expansion counterparts. The Marlins won the Pennant in only their fourth year of existence, but surely, they could not beat the New York Yankees for the World Series!  Florida did precisely that, shocking the world, and then…
