Chicago Bears KR Devin Hester Should Be a Hall of Famer
Most of the time, I don’t care about the Hall of Fame. Any of them. The Baseball Hall of Fame now just a platform for every voter and commentator to prove their importance to them or new metric they say proves it all. Everyone get in Hockey Hall of Fame as long as they go out drinking with the writers once (and every hockey player does, so whatever). Kevin Lowe got in there for his mom’s sake, and no one can think of anything he’s ever done except stand next to Gretzky. Basketball Hall of Fame…um, fine. There’s not much to say about it, it just seems to be the only thing that runs as it should.
The Professional Football Hall of Fame, like the Hockey Hall of Fame, is essentially open to anyone. That’s partly due to the size of the rosters and partly because no one on Earth can remember all the players. Tell people that LeRoy Butler should join, and they will believe you, because no one knows better or cares that much. Strong. The games all take place at the same time, I haven’t watched the Jaguars enough to tell you anything about Tony Boselli. And whoever did was a saddo.
But I won’t let Devin Hester wait another year. At least. It’s like unhappy voters when it hits their puffy faces. And Hester’s joy definitely hit you in the face.
I’m sure someone who cares too much and is the worst part of any party they’re somehow invited to would argue that a returnee only appears in some plays. That he doesn’t deserve to be in there with guys who play 40 or 50 times in a game who make the difference in every game.
God damn it. That thing.
Hester drew everyone’s attention to his pokes and catches. They made a TV appointment. Who else did it? It’s Showtime. Teams have to make plans for him. He changed the game. For god’s sake, he made the most backward team in the league, the Chicago Goddamn Bears, interesting. No one else in the last 35 years can say that. I watched that guy win word games by himself damn special team!
G/O Media can receive commission
Hester has taken on a well-thought-out role and made it stand out. Who else in this class can? Barber Ronde? He’s just twins Barber isn’t a camera worm. Darrelle Revis’ biggest claim to fame is that Rex Ryan calls him a parasite. I don’t know the difference between Joe Thomas and Zach Thomas and I’m sure it doesn’t matter. DeMarcus Ware, there were 30 of him.
But Hester, man. You can honestly say there’s no one like him, and there really hasn’t been one since. He changed not just a position but a whole phase of the game. Do you remember anything that happened after his opening comeback in the Super Bowl? No, you definitely don’t. Bet you didn’t even know they canceled the rest of the game after that because it was so cool. Fast forward to Prince and everyone goes home. The moment was so amazing, my roommate and one of my best friends gave me a straight right in the jaw for pure joy and excitement. And I don’t mind! What did Ronde Barber do that caused someone to accidentally cool off with one of her best friends? Damn exact.
There are no rules for this. You can vote someone into the Hall just because they’re the coolest player of their time. Isn’t that the whole point of remembering the people who made the game so special? Who changed it? Who made it engraved in the mind? You can’t do it more than Hester.
Get over yourself. Set Devin in Canton. Hall can use it more than he can.
You can’t keep the Super League down
Greed will never stop. Even after figuratively walking DJ Jazzy Jeff’d out the door, The Super League is back. Type.
A22, the vampires responsible for organizing and driving the latest attempt to extract more money from football, are starting to press the pitch. They released a statement yesterday outlining a new breakthrough, which will have up to 80 teams participating. four divisions, and will be earned based on performance, rather than the last time when the 14 clubs created a self-contained league they would enter every year.
The goal of this is clear. It is omnidirectional. Last time, only elite clubs cut themselves off, leaving too many enemies outside to take them down. By saying that there will be a lot of teams, the hope is that the new version will win second place in the Big 5 tournaments dreaming of new money, as well as the best teams in the smaller leagues.
What A22 and the creators of this mess want you to ignore is the current system of European football, the Champions League and Europa League and Europa Conference, which has 80 teams! This is just a realignment of that, while also cutting UEFA profits. It also has more games — at least 14 — that would be an interesting cramming into an already packed schedule of teams.
Again, this is just another league’s attempt to try to compete with the Premier League. The Premier League is the Super League, and clubs in other countries are jealous of the money and power they hold. They skipped the Champions League, which will change its format next season and have a minimum of eight games for everyone instead of six. They are clearly not implemented.
Don’t know if this will fly, or get laughed out of the building, but it ambition is pretty bare. It’s never enough, and these teams will never catch the Premier League until they host their own home. But that will involve endorsements in their country, and that will happen at the same time that we have a quality Silver Surfer movie.
