A lot has been said how the Pro Football Hall of Fame selection process is nothing more than a popularity contest, and some of the very best to ever play the game are still on the outside looking in. I have had the honor of speaking to a couple candidates that have not received enough votes to be inducted. Their overwhelming opinion on the issue is that those who refrain from the public eye following their career stand a lesser chance than those who don't.
It is the idea that television face time plays an important role in the writers' decision to induct a deserving player into the Hall. How many marginal ex-players that are currently on television are in the Hall of Fame? That is the point many attempt to make.
No matter where you stand on this debate, I think you can agree that there remain a lot of deserving Hall of Fame candidates that have been left out. Today, I am going to give you my list of the top 50 most glaring omissions.
