While congratulations and popped champagne are flowing on Saturday night for those players inducted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday, there will be plenty more people in the coming days who express their (sometimes rightful) gripes about the selections.
That's certainly the case with every enshrinement, but the 2013 class should especially lead to some debate. There were a plethora of worthy finalists, each with a legitimate case to made for their enshrinement, which left the committee in an extremely untenable situation while making their selections.
The 2013 class is filled with some illustrious names, with CBS Sports first came through with the report that Larry Allen, Cris Carter, Jonathan Ogden, Bill Parcells and Warren Sapp made up the modern-day selections:

For the most part, they did a great job. Nearly all of the 15 finalists deserve a Hall of Fame bust at some point and most will likely get in one day.
However, there were a few selections that will undoubtedly cause some head-shaking, with more deserving players being left out in the cold.
With that in mind, here is a complete look at all the biggest snubs and surprises from the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2013.
