Default Thoughts on the Pro HOF TO situation?

Petty? Or logical?

In the universe of 'Things I Care About'; the Pro Football Hall of Fame, list of non Bronco inductees, TO and pretty much anything from the State of Ohio (besides Skyline Chili) are in a dead heat for 'who gives a ****'.

Really, it does seem like there are better things for TO to get worked up over. And the Hall. And most definitely me.

The pro football HOF is a joke anyway. Who cares about this clown anyway?

TO doesnt need to explain himself to anyone. Good for him for doing what he wants. He's earned that much.

Classic TO fashion making it all about TO instead of being there with the fraternity he begged so hard for.

If TO doesn't want to go to the HOF induction, why should they have a Dog and Pony show in his honor. If I don't go to my HS Graduation should they announce my name and show my baby pictures? Nope. Send his Jacket Fed Ex. He can sell it on Ebay. I hope his bust is him doing sit ups. Next Question.

TO has always been a buster. He has been the cause of every problem that he's had in the NFL, and when he gets called out for it, he plays the victim role. And a lot of people will cape up for him. The guy loves attention. Now he's going to be the most talked about guy at the HOF, ruining the moment for the other guys going in. The broadcasters should be instructed not to talk about him.

He's lucky they are still inducting him. I think they should just forget he was voted in if he decided he's not going to it.

Had it been another reason, maybe a death in the family on or around that date, sure. But, to just decide to pass on it, so far in advance with no real reason? Ok, put Gradishar or Atwater in instead, as they both deserve it. Next man up.

I don't know why the bothered inducting the guy if he didn't want to be in it. Plenty of other deserving players who should be in. I wouldn't even put him on my list for consideration even if he wasn't a head case. Too few great WR's in the HOF why this guy got in over them is questionable.

He is broke as a joke too so he has to try and stay in the limelight even though nobody cares about him anymore. He will probably charge tickets to this circus. HOF is about joining a brotherhood of legends but even TO wants it to be about TO instead of enjoying the comraderie.

If he changes his mind, the HOF should still say no. Tell him to buy a ticket and make sure security doesn't allow him on stage. If he causes a scene, have him removed.

I could care less what another man decides to do as long as it isn't unlawful or put others at risk. TO can do what TO wants to do.

They knew he was an a-hole when they invited him.
Maybe they should have invited someone more worthy. Someone with More class. Someone like Rod Smith Maybe?

TO is better at football than any of you will be at anything.. except for anonymously taking out your frustrations with life on a celebrity you've never met. How's that feel?

Who gives a * * * *.

I can't think of a more meaningless job than to be a professional sports writer. And yet, every year we get a few dozen of these worthless idiots together and have them pick out who the best players are in football.

How many of these worthless idiots have ever played a real sport? Can any of them run 10 feet without getting a heart attack?

Weak, talent-less, worthless losers with a pen/typewriter trying to decide the fates of the world's best athletes? What a crock of ****, the whole thing.

Yah we dont have that talent, but most of us have humility and common sense.
And probably never had the fortune that TO pissed away either.
As many posters have said, Rod Smith has the numbers and rings. But has NO invite to the WNFLHOF-thats Worthless. Ill Never visit that f'n Sham in Canton.

I know TO. He's not the a-hole people thinks he is. Most of the negative reputation he's gotten is due to poor PR strategy and a few outbursts from his past.

Dude's a hard working, disciplined athlete who got to where he was by determination. He made some mistakes when he was young, but who doesn't?
