Good morning, everyone! One more day until we get to see how Levi's stadium fares in the Super Bowl. A lot of things came in as far as news, most of it amusing.
But the one thing that's serious is Eddie DeBartolo's fourth ballot to get into the NFL Hall of Fame and it's happening today. At this point, not letting in one of the greatest owners of all time, given other inductions under the contributor nominee, just speaks either arrogance, ignorance or both. What? You're going to hold an extortion scandal that was more of a mistake than anything else over his head? Fine. He lost his team, they aren't exactly doing the greatest right now, and we haven't heard a peep since, I'd say he suffered enough. If you're going to let others in ignoring past mistakes that aren't exactly favorable by the media, not letting DeBartolo in because of a scandal is ridiculous. Plus he's been nominated four times. Bump someone else for a year if it comes down to it. I don't care, stop torturing the guy.
Let the him in already.
