Hall of Fame nominees announced

Posted by Mike Spofford on September 28, 2012 – 11:37 am

Four individuals with ties to the Packers were among the 127 nominees announced this week for the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s class of 2013.

Outside linebackers coach Kevin Greene, former safety LeRoy Butler, former GM Ron Wolf and Clay Matthews Jr., father of current LB Clay Matthews III, are all on the list.

The list of nominees will eventually be pared to 15 finalists, who will join former Packers LB Dave Robinson, a senior nominee, for the final stage of consideration. Greene was a finalist last year after being a semifinalist in previous years.

    Greenbay home of the most overrated team in the league. And home of the most whiny bandwagon fans this league has ever seen. Have fun in cellar this year!!!

    I don’t think Kramer is eligible anymore.

    Kramer is a solid reason why we call the Super Bowl trophy the Lombardi. If he doesn’t make his block on jethro pehu, allowing Bart Starr to sneak in the end zone in the Ice Bowl we’d be calling it the Landry trophy.
    Kramer deserves his place. He beat up on players in his era like Merlin Olson, Alex Karras, Deacon Jones, all of which are enshrined in Canton.
    Kramer was shafted by the number of Packers of that team that did make the HOF. The HOF didn’t want to show favoritism toward the Pack.
    Packer fans everywhere should united and demand the HOF committee to reconsider, and allow Kramer his rightful place in the HOF.

    Spencer—You have no idea about the packers and what it is to be a fan of this great franchise. You’ll never get it, but those of us who do, even if we are from NY State, are a part of the greatest experience in pro football.

    Packers that deserve to be in HOF that are not: Jerry Kramer, Dave Robinson, Sterling Sharpe, Leroy Butler, Bob Skoronski, Bobby Dillon

    What does it take to get Jerry Kramer into the HOF? With out a doubt one of the premier players of his era.

    Sterling Sharpe deserves to be in the Hall but I doubt he ever makes it. Unfortunately, his career was cut short, due to medical reasons. His statistics just aren’t there for his position. I know Gale sayers got in the HoF with a shortened career but that was a different era.

    I would love to see Leroy get in as well. I have always thought he was never quite appreciated the way he should have been.

    Kramer may make it on the Senior nomination someday. I know all Packer fans hope he does.
