Not to give a detailed account of my personal dealings with the person BUT...

Green is a butt and doesn't deserve the HOF before Monk - not on the same card - AFTER!

Hopefully he will get his day at some point down the road !
I agree. But I am afraid his chances are not very good.

I am kind of miffed that Donnie Shell is no longer considered for HoF. He hsa been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. When he played, he was one of the best free safeties in the league. I thought if you are one of the best in the league, you end up in HoF. I really wonder how many HoF members(voters) truly understand football.
Also, it's a shame that Art Monk is not in the HoF yet. He is on the final list. I wonder if the voters/jokers can understand Art's contribution to the game.

I think there is actually some "not so many steelers allowed anymore" mentality to the HOF picks. I mean, Terry Bradshaw has often joked about how the Steelers need their own wing, and I wonder if that doesn't get into the craw of some of the voters. With Bettis a sure thing, we already have 19 or is it 20 guys in the Hall, and unless your name is NY that just isn't resonable, regardless of what the players do in their career. Rod Woodsen will also be in the Hall and his stats were built as a Steeler. LC Greenwood should have been named already too.
