Re: Bettis NOT a Hall of Famer- Here's Why
You can't wait 7 years after the guy stepped onto a field and look at stats to determine if Bettis should get in to the Hall. Spend half an hour (that's how long they spent talking about him the other day when they voted). Read what players like Porter and FWP have to say about playing with him and read about his character on the team. Watch some highlights of him playing and remember what it was like when he was on the team.
Reducing him to a stat compiler is very disrespectful to a guy who had to crawl up and down his steps the day after a game because he gave so much to it.
have you ever wondered what your life would have been like if you became a hired goon right out of school? you would have had a chance to learn the ropes from other goons and rub shoulders with all kinds of seedy characters. oh the stories you would be able to tell.
