Jerome Bettis didn't make the Hall of Fame cut for a fourth straight year. By all indications, the main sticking points included Bettis' 3.9 yards per carry average during his legendary career. And therein lies the hypocrisy. The media and fans love to complain about an athlete who acts in a selfish manner and who is stats-conscious, but if that athlete doesn't reach certain milestones during his career, it's used against him for things such as Hall of Fame enshrinement.
