All He Does is Get Snubbed

Well, here we are again. Chris Carter, Buckeye and NFL great, on the HOF ballot for the 6th time. Thats right, SIXTH time. Tell me why an 8 time pro bowler who is 4th all time in receiving TD's (130), 8th all time in receiving yards (13899), and 4th all time in catches (1101) has been snubbed 5 times for the NFL's highest honor? Just to put it into perspective only 3 receivers have caught more passes and reached the endzone more times than CC. In fact, Carter has 31 more career TD's than Steve Largent, a first ballot inductee. Michael Irving and James Lofton, arguably 2 of the best players of all time, were each snubbed twice while Art Monk and John Stallworth were passed over 7 times before induction. Carter certainly deserves a spot before those two. A couple more accolades include 8 straght 1,000 yard seasons, 1st team All Pro twice, a member of the NFL's 1990's all decade team and recipient of the Walter Payton man of the year award. Does the hall have something against receivers? Were his off the field issues so terrible that his ensrinement is debateable? What gives? Tell me what you think. Will this be Carter's year?
