As I mentioned the Cowboys have had a lot of real good players through the years and not all of them are going to get voted into the Hall of Fame. Some of these players were great for the Cowboys but historically were just considered good players. Some of the players that are being mentioned on this board for the Hall of Famer aren't even in the Cowboys ROH like Harvey Martin. if it was up to a lot of Cowboy FANS the team would have at least 30 players in the HOF. Just look at some of the names that are being brought up for the HOF. I was on a board a few years ago where this topic came up and Larry Browns name was mentioned for crying out loud. :facepalm: The NFL has been around for almost 93 years and every year several players/coaches usually 4 to 7 get voted into the Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame is a very elite group and some very good players end up not receiving enough votes. The selection committee is made up of 46 people. The link below lists the selection committee and explains the selection process. http://www.profootballhof.com/hof/selectionprocess.aspx As for the one who resigned in protest Paul Zimmermen he resigned due to Bob Hayes not being voted in. I mentioned it took 27 years after Hayes retired for the Cowboys to honor him in the teams Hall of Fame. Some members of the HOF committee obviously had issues with Hayes' conviction for dealing drugs as did Landry and Shramm who had 15 years to put Hayes in the Cowboys ROH and didn't. Hayes being denied for years into the HOF certainly had nothing to do with any bias against the Cowboys. Alex Karras was never voted into the HOF and some feel it was due to his off the field issues that included gambling which cost him a season. Like I keep driving home it's not a bias against a team that keeps a player out it's an issue with the player. If you're on a committee and have a problem with a player you're not going to cast a vote for them. There's always going to be some bias when you have 46 individuals voting on a HOF induction. Some players are borderline Hall of Famers and there's going to be some disagreement whether these players are worthy and some on the committee are going to look past their playing ability and examine their character. Had OJ Simpson stood trial for the double murder he was accused of and most feel he committed prior to his HOF induction he would have never been inducted. It's not the team it's the player that's being scrutinized. Everything we're discussing is based on opinion and don't say it's not. No one knows what's going on in the minds of 46 members on a committee. Unless there's a criteria a player has to meet that automatically earns them induction into the HOF it's going to come down to a vote where 80% of the committee is going to have to agree for a player to get inducted into the HOF.
