Oh boy. A whole new thing for me to get pissed about. Shannon revolutionized the position. If he played in NY they would have held a parade all the way to Canton for him.

without a doubt, YES. A huge snub by the voters.

Not even a question, set multiple NFL records for the TE position and won three super bowl rings. He is the definition of a Hall of Famer.

We are all blowing our own horns, is there anyone that can make an argument as to why he SHOULDN'T be in the HOF? Of course, I said the same thing about steve Atwater too and I'm still waiting....

This is a brilliant strategy. There's been a lot of pent-up (or not so pent-up) anger built up in Broncos fans for the past few weeks. Instead of directing it all at the same issue, give us something every Broncos fan can agree upon and get ticked off about and channel our rage towards that. We'll intimidate the Hall into including him!

And my opinion on this matter is plain and simple: the Hall of Fame is a joke and until they pick a set of standards and stick to them they will always be a joke.

I mean, part of the reason that Gradishar and Little aren't in the Hall is because they never won the big game. Which is a stupid argument, but it would at least be consistent if they stuck to it.

However, when Shannon Sharpe comes along, its argued that the teams he was on were too good, and that's why he won three Superbowls. Awesome reversal there.

Not to mention that some Hall judges actually based their vote on considering him a wide receiver. Which completely ignores the fact that Sharpe was the one who made the position into the receiving threat it is today.

So if retiring with three super bowl rings, every meaningful record at one's position, and the distinction of having revolutionized that same position over the course of your career isn't an impressive enough resume to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer, the Hall either needs to lower its standards or admit that it has a ridiculous anti-Broncos bias.

Forget the Hall. The only distinction that matters anymore is our own Ring of Fame.

Just being a doof, if he could make an argument for it, even if it was stupid, he would have made it.
