    It's their moment in the sun. I have no problem with a few codgers running long. If this was about ratings they wouldn't have it on a Saturday.

    I've heard presidential inaugural speeches that were shorter.

    How about respecting the 5-6 codgers waiting their turns? Aeneas Williams family is going to be sitting waiting in folding chairs for 7 hout this pace. LOL.

    Ray Guy should've gotten in a long time ago. The best player ever at the most important position in football.

    If Ray Guy doesn't get up there soon, he may snooze off.

    No issue with them taking all the time they want. You only get inducted into the HoF once. If anything blame the HoF for inducting 6 people every year.

    As a result, these guys are pretty much compelled to thank everyone to include their pet goldfish. It is a lifetime achievement but for the sake of viewership, they ought to condense it a bit. You'd probably get more quality vs quantity.

    This may take things in another direction but I'm listing a handful of players I didn't agree with over the years that have been inducted:

    Darrell Green
    Art Monk
    Cris Carter
    Shannon Sharpe
    John Randle
    Chris Doleman
    Warren Moon
    Andre Reed (I would've voted in Haley of him or Williams)
    Aeneas Williams (lukewarm)

    But I must say it's about time Ray Guy got in. He was "famous" for attention given towards his position. Hall of Fame to me indicates being famous for standing out, in spite of longevity. It seems to me that too many are getting in for longevity and compilation of stats.

    Strahan forgot to thank Brett Farve who decided to lay down when Strahan breathed on him.

    Or...it could have something to do with him being the best player ever at the most important position in football. His hang-time won 3 SBs.

    If it's a good story that's great, some are not we must take the good with the bad.

    I remember him playing when I was a kid and even then you could tell he was awesome. I watched his Road to Canton special last night and it was really good.
