Wed, April 2, 2008

HAMILTON - The Canadian Football Hall of Fame is set to welcome five new members.

Former CFL stars Doug Flutie, Michael (Pinball) Clemons, Mike Pringle and John Bonk will be inducted as players. Tom Shepherd, who began his involvement with the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 1966, will enter in the builder's category.

Flutie was named the league's outstanding player an unprecedented six times and led his teams to three Grey Cup titles.

Gee Vince, you're bang on about Kenny Lehman. A real injustice. Truly one of the great players in Ottawa Rough Rider history. Quite surprised to find that he indeed is NOT in the CFL hall of fame. Always assumed he was,wow.

This may be the best ever class of inductees into the CFL Hall of fame, i strongly believe witrhout Flutie at the melm in B.C and in toronto bot those teams may have folded therefore having no CFL, Flutie, Clemons and Pringle were three of the most exiting players to watch, when they had they ball anything could happen.

How worthy??? What kind of a question is that? LOL!

Three guys who not only dominated the CFL with records and titles, but had NFL stints as well. One guy who also goes onto win a championship as a coach, another guy whose rushing made the Als dominant, and another guy who tosses a famous hail mary pass in college and then earns a starting NFL quarterback position in his mid-30's. Hmmm.... I'd say they are worthy.

The best thing about his induction is the fact that Flutie is a very proud CFLer. He has said many times over the years that the CFL had resurrected his career. He always has nothing but kind words for the league, despite its shortcommings. The CFL would be smart to hire this guy in some PR capacity.------ PS yes, it really is a dumb question. His induction is a given so dummy up whoever you are!

Why such a stupid question? It has to be from someone that has never watched the CFL during the Flutie days. Doug was an awesome player even south of the border. Too bad the NFL didn't recognize what they had.

If Doug Flutie shouldn't be in the CFL Hall of Fame, then the Hall of Fame should be empty. If Flutie didn't qualify, then no one could.

Best QB ever to grace the CFL. As an Argo fan since McQuay dropped the big one, Flutie's two years with the Argos was the best football we ever witnessed.

It's a unanimous no-brainer. He electrified the crowd and mesmerized the opposition.

What we here in Ottawa cannot understand is how John Bonk makes it and former Ottawa Rough Rider, Ken Lehman does not. Ken Lehman was an All star, Schenley award winner, Multiple Eastern conference all-star, played in the 1966 Grey Cup won the 1968 and 1969 Grey Cup as the starting middle linebacker.

Somehow he has been forgotten and an injustice is being perpetuated.

This HAS GOT to be Corrected and soon!

Of course! Calgary fans, Toronto fans, and even the cities with teams that played against him would all agree.
Wes, 2008-04-02 20:54:38

Are you kidding? Flutie is one of the most outstanding quarterbacks to play in the CFL. Who would you put ahead of him? Moon, Jackson, Lancaster? This is a well deserved honour. Congrats Doug!
