50 year fan: I just looked Jim Finks up on Wikipedia, he is one and the same. He was a 12th-round pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 1949 NFL Draft out of the University of Tulsa, he played for several years as defensive back and quarterback, he wore #7, retiring after the 1955 season. Even so, it doesn't take away the fact that they put him in the Hall for being an Administrator which is where I agree with you, they shouldn't be in the HOF. Dick LeBeau made it in for playing as a CB. Maybe "Contributors" should be left out.

These two are in the HOF: If Finks is HOF material, then Sabol should be seriously considered. Here is the breakdown of all in the NFL HOF for anyone interested.

Hugh "Shorty" Ray dealt with officiating, rules, officials and such technical aspects of the game.

Jim Finks 1964-1982, 1986-1992 -- Team Administrator - Minnesota Vikings, 1964-1973, Chicago Bears, 1974-1982,

At least these guys were on the football field taking part in some way with what was happening, not recording it. As far as their their deserving it...that's another matter...I remember Finks playing quarterback for the Steelers when we celebrated touchdowns like they won the Championship...don't think he deserved to be there either.

Every player or coach who has gotten to the Superbowl feels like it is their "time", tell us something new like....I bet my wife and kids on it.....then that tells me your confident.

Don't get me wrong, Steve Sabol did a lot for those of us who sit on our butts and watch football, but I believe anyone in the Hall of Fame should be at least a player, coach or even an owner. Otherwise you open it up to anybody to include the guy that throws the hot dogs in the stands, how about the loyal fans???? Like me.

John Magulicutty started the game of football in his backyard 150 years ago, how come he isn't in the hall of fame too. He took pictures.
