    I am really new here and have no idea if this has ever been discussed on here...but why is Kramer not in the HOF? Lombardi called him "the best right guard in football", and that is enough for me.

    My personal opinion is that there are people jealous of his success, and think that he has had his time in the spotlight. What can we do to stop this miscarriage of justice? :angry:

    I think the general feeling among voters is that there are already enough packers from that era in the hall. Plus its not easy to get in, its not like Jerry is the only all decade player not in the hall. He has a fair beef but I doubt he will be let in anytime soon. But I doubt its anything to do with anything outside of football. Jerry was a self promoter, but not the most successful packer of that generation.

    Not all decade, voted the BEST guard in the first 50 years of the NFL! This guy was a 5 time all pro! Irvin from Dallas was a 1 time all pro. I don't get it.:rules2:

    He should be in, plane and sim[ple. Could it be because he has a lot to say when it comes to the NFL veterans? Veterans benefits? He is a great guy and without doubt should already be in.

    Not to make excuses, but this clip brought out a real good reason: 10 other players (11 if you include the coach) from that team already in the HOF.
