Far from a surprise but none the less deflating the Hall of Fame class for 2013 has been announced and Tim Brown is not included. Yet another year of waiting for the Raider great one that will be filled with plenty of questions surrounding his chances of ever getting the Hall call.
No doubt Brown has the credentials as he’s amassed numbers few in the history of the game can touch. However his outlandish claims of Super Bowl sabotage reportedly didn’t sit well with many voters and could cloud his future prospects of enshrinement.
It would be very unfair to hold something that happened after his playing days were over against Brown but since when has this process been fair or unbiased? Ray Guy knows a thing or two about that.
However if there is some hope out there it can be found in Cris Carter’s selection today. Carter has a similar resume to that of Brown and it proves there is a strong case to be made going forward. The wide receiver position has been one of the toughest to break through but that could be changing.
