    Rod Woodson up for Hall of Fame induction

    http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/8731 ... candidates

    Hope he goes in as a Steeler

    edit:

    CANTON, Ohio (AP) - "Defensive end Bruce Smith, defensive back Rod Woodson and tight end Shannon Sharpe are among first-year candidates for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

    The list includes 110 players, seven coaches and 16 contributors, including former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue and longtime team owners Bud Adams, Jerry Jones, Art Modell and Ralph Wilson.

    Hall of Fame selectors will choose 25 candidates who will be announced later this month as semifinalists. The field will then be narrowed to 15 by a mail ballot. The inductees will be selected from among those 15 and the two senior nominees previously announced, Bob Hayes and Claude Humphrey. They were selected in August by a senior selection committee.

    The class of inductees will be chosen at the selection committee's annual meeting on Saturday, January 31, 2009, in Tampa, Fla., the day before the 2009 Super Bowl. As few as four and as many as seven can be selected.

    To be considered for Hall of Fame election, a nominated player or coach must be retired for at least five years. A contributor, who has made outstanding career contributions to pro football in capacities other than playing or coaching, may still be active in his pro football career."

    If there is any justice, he will be a first ballot.

    Of course, if there were any justice Dirt would be in.

    I agree with the fact that Dermonti should be in the hall, but not as a First Ballot guy. Rod should be first ballot w/o a doubt. He was named to the 75th anniversary team, still has the record for Int Returns for TD (right? or did this get broken?). He was the best CB in the game. Deion, schmeion, CBs have to tackle on running plays too.

    Just for the record, players go in as individuals, not as members of any team.

    True, but at Woodson's induction we won't see a bunch or turds or Raiders' fans dressed up like clowns to see him in. It will be the Steeler nation. With that being said he goes in the way we want him to go in, as a Steeler.



    ours is not to wonder why just invert and multiply...

    Look at the team logos next to Franco's name at the top.

    Players go in as individuals and teams they played for are listed on their bust in chronological order.
