Denver Broncos great and legendary tight end Shannon Sharpe was not elected to the 2009 Class of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. A first-time finalist, Sharpe made the cut from 17 to 10 before failing to make the final 6.
“Obviously, there’s disappointment,” Sharpe told the Denver Post. “But am I any more disappointed than any of the other guys who made it to the final 10 and didn’t get in? Probably not. Sunshine follows rain. We’ll try it again. Hopefully, I’ll get back on the ballot and I’ll get back in this situation and hopefully I’ll get in.”
Three Super Bowl rings and every tight end record at the time of his retirement isn’t enough to get Sharpe into the Hall of Fame? This is downright laughable. I’m disgusted with the voting committee.
