Cowboys Hall Of Famer Nominees Shutout, Again!

Well, well, well - can anyone smell bias in the air? How in the heck did two of our Cowboys Legends get shunned out from final induction into the NFL Hall Of Fame. The late "Bullet" Bob Hayes and Rayfield Wright made it to the final six, and it finally seemed like a deserving done deal... Not to be though, some how the 39 boy committee bumbled and fouled up one of the highest honors a football player can garner - an induction into the Hall Of Fame. Cowboys Fans are outraged, as well we should be - this is truly one of the biggest travesties to deal out to the Hayes and Wright families!

So who makes up this 39 man, I mean 39 boy committee? I have received many emails with the same guilty party names attached. Ladies and gentlemen, we present the partners in crime:

This shunning of our players is becoming a regular letdown, and beginning to develop a sinister pattern - I think it's time for the NFL to step in and overhaul how players are voted in, otherwise this whole process will be without credit.

So what other Dallas Cowboys are getting the cold shoulder?

Cliff Harris
Charlie Waters
Drew Pearson
Chuck Howley
Harvey Martin
Ed "Too Tall" Jones
Lee Roy Jordan

This is utter insanity, can you believe it? What will the future hold for Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, Moose Johnston... the way its going, don't be surprised if our most recent stars get kicked to the curb too.

Sure, we know not everyone can be inducted into the "Hall," but it sure seems like these people have something against great players - dallas cowboys...

To the 39 boy commitee: You should be deeply embarressed and ashamed. Now get your crap together and man up!
