The Pro Football Hall of Fame selection committee made its choices on Saturday and the 2013 class includes three players who made it on their first try, a wide receiver who waited a number of years and one head coach.
And no Art Modell.
Elected this year were offensive linemen Larry Allen and Jonathan Ogden, wide receiver Cris Carter, defensive tackle Warren Sapp and head coach Bill Parcells.
There were also two senior nominees elected, defensive tackle Curly Culp and linebacker Dave Robinson.
Modell was one of the first finalists eliminated when the committee made its initial cut from 15 to 10 nominees. According to BaltimoreRavens.com, 16 people spoke about Modell during a 32-minute discussion.
“There was lively discussion and it was impassioned, and a lot of talk about the move from Cleveland,” said Clark Judge of CBSSports.com, a member of the selection committee. “I knew once it sort of focused on (the move), that it was going to be tough to get over. It was pretty clear from the discussion that this room was divided and there are too many ‘nays’ for this thing to get over the hump.”
Maybe God really doesn’t hate Cleveland.
