A disgrace that Art Modell is not selected for Hall of Fame, since this is a family site, I`ll leave it at that. Congrats to Odgen. Never give up the fight for Art Modell.

What's amazing and truly disrespectful is that a lot of these media, writer who are voters wouldnot earn the salary they hae if not for the early work Art Modell put in to generate popularity of NFL. All of this cause he moved to another town. He left them they name which is more than what was done for Baltimore fans. As a former Colts fans I get the disappointment but its been over 16 years and Cleveland has a team.

Tony Grossi is a petty person.

"Grossi and Baltimore media representative Scott Garceau of 105.7 The Fan both presented to the committe on behalf of Modell’s candidacy"

Totally. How dare he encourage the committee to put Modell in the HOF.

Modell will get in eventually, even if today wasn't his day. As soon as the Browns string together a couple of winning seasons all of the animosity will go away, the same way that almost no Ravens fans born after the 00s care about the Irsay's because of what we have now.

I cant understand how the innovator of monday night football owner of the browns who made a good buisness decision in moving them to baltimore it was a blessing 4 us but its all about dollars and cents and clevlands wasnt adding up so u have 2 move on. Modell deserves it that sound personal hes not in the h.o.f and i thought the vote process wasnt based on that

What a shame Art did not get in . He'll be smiling tomorrow wherever he is . Ironically Cleveland built a new stadium for their new team which is all Art asked for . He'll forever be remembered by all Ravens fans .

Hence why we need to bring this trophy back to Baltimore... Art was classy enough to leave Cleveland their franchise name, colors, logos, etc... so that they could reform an expansion team. Which was a whole lot more than the Colts left us in Baltimore... Took us 14 years to get a team... Took them 3 to restructure and get going again...

Bring it home boys... for our guy ART!

Sadly, I think that as long as the HOF is near Cleveland Art will not be getting in. There are too many panelists who are swayed by the fan vote.

Canton sucks!!!! Is it the hall of fame or the hall that Cleveland approves. The voters are gutless wonders who should be disbanded. Cleveland has not produce anything that is worthwhile. I mean a dirty player like Warren Sapp gets in he gets in Vick is a sure in. Art Modell deserves to be in the hall of fame. He gave them many chances to keep the team it is not his fault they were not smart enough to act. Clevweland stop this petty pouting or I hope that browns leave again L.A. needs a team

As much as he did for the game, and for bring a team back to the greatest NFL city in the world, owners, GMs and coaches need their own place. If your going to put these people in the HOF with players, use another vote not with the players.

Bump'em, Art can watch his Team go for another Lombardi Trophy Sunday! If the NFL was the Mafia, Art would be the Godfather! I live in Cleveland and you got a few Busta's that think they speak for everyone and thats not so! They cant stop the Inevitable! Every Raven thats goes to the HOF is taking a piece of Art with them! Let the HOF know what they are MISSING!

Art was the first one to hire a minority General Manager, Ozzie Newsome.Dude was ahead of his time. Jonathan Ogden got his paycheck from Art Modell.

This is a shame. Cleveland and the NFL should be ashamed of themselves. It's okay though. Tomorrow night, we're gonna show the world. Win it for Art.

This hall of fame thing is getting ridiculous. The fate is left to 50 journalists that have to decide who gets in? I think it should be much like the probowl. There needs to be votes of the coaching community including all retired coaches who coached one time in the NFL, the Journalists and the general public voting. Each group should be given a weightage, and then put together to determine who gets in. The other thing is there needs to be a category outside of players that get selected each year. Make it 1, 5, 1. 1 coach/owner/GM type, 1 old timer that missed the boat, 5 recent football players!

I've never seen such unity on this site! Even my [i]Retire #52 [/i]Thread had some detractors!
