Default NFL cancels Hall of Fame Game

NFL cancels Hall of Fame Game

Pro Football Hall of fame AP

The NFL has canceled the Hall of Fame Game, as the annual preseason opener has become the biggest casualty to date of the lockout.

“We are unfortunately going to have to cancel the Hall of Fame Game this year,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said at the owners’ meeting in Atlanta. “The time is just too short and we feel that it’s important for all 32 teams to be operating with the same number of preseason games and also starting camp at the same date or near the same date.”

The Hall of Fame Game was supposed to take place on August 7, with the Bears meeting the Rams in Canton, Ohio.

Goodell noted that the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place as scheduled.

“Of course, the ceremonies will go on,” Goodell said.

But not the game that was supposed to go with it.

I am in the who gives a **** camp. As long as the 1st pre-season game for us happens I am happy. It will probably be the only time I see the Broncos this year.

The HOF game is pretty weak anyway. However, Chester Pitts and his large ASS can STFU

sad, every snap Cutler takes is a chance for something awful to happen to him.....looks like we lost about 8 chances for a elephant to fall out of the sky directly on his head

Now that the lockout is about to be lifted, the worst thing to come out of this whole thing was the lack of conversation about cutting down the preseason.

Do the season ticketholders a favor and cancel a week or two of the preseason games - I'm tired of paying regular prices to watch a bunch of camp fodder.

When I went to the Hall of Fame Game in 2004, it was the most boring game of all time.

Broncos versus Redskins, but even a die hard like me was bored as **** after a quarter and a half.
