The whole Hall of Fame process is flawed.

Some members have way too much power and personal biases have kept people out of the Hall of Fame for a long time (see: Art Monk).

If personal beefs did not exist both Terrell Owens and Randy Moss would be first ballot Hall of Famers when they come up from enshrinement, but I have been told by people much more connected than me, that T.O. may never get in and Moss is iffy for 1st ballot.

Cris Carter has been a lightening rod for a lot of people.  Cris Carter is a hall of famer, I don’t hesitate when I say that,  but he can’t seem to get in, is it because some of the members have a personal bias against him? Philadelphia Radio Host Howard Eskin seems to believe so.

Many a theory has been put forth to explain why Cris Carter was once again snubbed for the Hall of Fame. One possibility: that Carter is being kept out of the Hall for some personal reason. Many have theorized that Carter’s prickly relationship with the press over the years might be playing a role.

That notion gained more credibility today thanks to a tweet from Philadelphia radio host Howard Eskin. Eskin’s tweet reads, “WR Cris Carter didn’t make the Pro Football HOF I was told b cause female voter has personal problem w CC. Cost 4 votes. Missed by 1.” The female voter with the CC problem isn’t identified but only two women are listed as Hall of Fame voters at the present time: Nancy Gay of FoxSports.com and Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
