If this gets messy I wonder if there will be any effects on his HOF chances.

They can't, can they? He was way too good.

Seeing he retired early to take this job, any chance he comes back to play? How about it Shannon?

Shannon Sharpe steps aside at CBS pending resolution of legal case
Posted by Mike Florio on September 14, 2010 8:36 PM ET

Former NFL tight end Shannon Sharpe, who inexplicably has been passed over on multiple occasions for inclusion in the Hall of Fame, now has to worry about an off-field issue that not only could further slow down his candidacy for Canton but also could derail his on-air career at CBS.

Sports By Brooks reports that Sharpe has decided to leave The NFL Today until the pending legal case against him is resolved.

"I have decided to step aside from The NFL Today until the matter is resolved," Sharpe said in a statement released through CBS.

CBS Sports Senior Vice President of Communications LeslieAnne Wade said, "We accept Shannon's decision and decline to comment further on a pending legal matter."

The real question, in our view, is the amount of time the legal matter will be pending. On Thursday, only three days before Sharpe's first on-air duties of the year, an "ex parte" temporary protective order was issued against him. "Ex parte" means that the alleged victim obtained the protection by going to court without Sharpe having the ability to respond to the claims, which include allegations of rape and death threats.

We've got several concerns about this. First, if rape was committed, why didn't the alleged victim go to the police? Second, the "ex parte" nature of the process allows anyone to allege anything and create all sorts of problems for someone. It's far more potent than merely filing a lawsuit, since the issuance of a protective order carries a much stronger sense of legitimacy than the one-sided contentions in a civil complaint.

The plaintiff will have to prove at a hearing on September 20 the basis for the protective order, and if the situation at that point is concluded Sharpe will miss only one week. If it lingers, Sharpe will miss more than a week. Given the speed (or lack thereof) with which the legal process sometimes moves, Sharpe could miss the whole year.

None of this excuses any wrongdoing that Sharpe may have committed. But it's troubling to see someone have to temporarily abandon his livelihood based on a claim that has yet to be scrutinized or tested by any legal authority.

But the good thing is he fast tracked his way into the Pro football HOF! If he gets caught with a bunch of hookers, weed, and a small mountain (hell HUGE MOUNTAIN) of coke he will be a lock to get in this year.

That way when TD makes it in he can hold TD's hand and cry while TD is trying to do an interview on the induction announcement show.

Well they haven't kicked OJ out and he was only accused and never found guilty. So they should extend the same to Shannon since its only been accused!

I know it won't happen and his chances are hurt right now but I hope he isn't guilty of this stuff.

That's right.
Smart move. If he clears his name, everything will be just fine.
No need to be in the public eye while he's got this going allegation(s) against him...

I agree with those who think it's going to hurt his chances to go in this season. Maybe even next. The HOF committee isn't going to want this anywhere near the institution when it's still fresh.

It's tragic if it's true and it ruins his HoF chances

on the flip side, the NFL Today just got a whole lot more watchable
