Have not seen anyone else post anything on here about Chris making the Football Hall Of Fame after being passed over for so many years. So i just wanted to say Congrats to Chris and its about dam time they voted you in. Now if they will just get off their high and mighty horse and holier than thou selfs in let Jack Tatum in . Sure he played with a all out attitude when he played and was one of the few players played the game knowing you could be hurt on any play. But that was the way the game was played back then knowing your career could come to an end on any given play but they played any ways.
Yes Darryl Stingley was hurt and put in a wheel chair for the rest of his life but he knew the risk like every one else. Yes no one ever want to see a player go out that way but it is and was a part of the game. Football is not social event played at tea time it is a very violent sport with a high risk of injury for anyone who chooses to play. Should he have said he was sorry for doing his job or showed remorse? Maybe maybe not that was up to him and him along on how to deal with what happed that day. Should the NFL hold that against him for playing the game it was suppost to be played then not say hey im sorry. I don't think so but that my way of thinking being thats the way i was taught to play all out on every play.
