Pro Football’s oldest living Hall of Famer, Charley Trippi, passed away today at the age of 100. Charley Trippi was a coveted player coming out of the University of Georgia, and the New York Yankees of the upstart All-American Football Conference thought they had him locked up.  The Chicago Cardinals, who drafted him first overall, earned his services when Cardinals owner, Charles Bidwell signed him to what was a huge contract at the time, $100,000 over four years. Trippi was the heart of what would become Chicago’s “Million Dollar Backfield” and as a rookie in 1947, he would lead the Cardinals…
Last year, Notinhalloffame.com awarded the first ever MLB NIHOF Regular Season Cup, and for those wondering what this entails, let us give you the details. With every single regular season game, we anointed the best five players in the game with descending points, 5-4-3-2-1.  This is very different from last year, as we only did this for the top three players, thus it was 3-2-1 allotment of Points per Game. A staggering 1,151 players received at least one point, with 65 cracking at least 100.   The top players for the MLB NIHOF Cup are not always the best in the league,…

When you focus on Halls of Fame, one of the progressions is a Hall of Fame Monitor, where we look at active players and rank their HOF chances based on their accomplishments to date. We have created our own metrics based on an elite seven-year period, and how active players measure up to those who have entered the Hall in the last five classes. The entire section can be found here, but we would like to present our current top ten players, and their Hall of Fame monitor rank: They are: #1. Lebron James, Los Angeles Lakers (#1 Last Year) #2.…

RIP: Bruce Sutter

Baseball Hall of Fame Relief Pitcher, Bruce Sutter, passed away last night.   Signing with the Chicago Cubs in 1971, Sutter toiled in the minors for years, until he learned the split-fingered fastball, a pitch that would propel him to greatness.  Chicago first called him up in 1976, and was the team’s closer the following year, where he made history becoming the 19th Pitcher to throw an immaculate inning.  Sutter played for the Cubs for five seasons, and while Chicago was not particularly good during that time, Sutter was electric, leading the NL in Saves twice and representing the Cubs in the All-Star Game…
