    Better late than never. Too bad it was awarded posthumously.

      That a great single season should take so long to get in the HOF is not wrong at all.

      That people demand immediate recognition for single-season achievements such as those by Miss K. Holmes is ridiculous.

      Kelly is not a first-ballot HOFer by any means. Mr J. Edwards is, by a mile.

      Mark Gastineau is still not in the HOF, despite achieving 22 sacks in 1985. And while I think Kurt Warner should be in the HOF, not everyone does.

        That a great speedster who single-handedly made defenses switch to zone should take so long to get into the HOF IS wrong at all!!!!!!!

            There's a huge difference.

            Kelly Holmes did not cause even a remote change in the way people reacted to her tactics.

            Bob Hayes did!

            So, Kelly Holmes did not warrant 1st-ballot HOF status.

            Despite having only 1 great season,

            Bob Hayes did.

              This is great news for my community! He's still a local hero, despite his mistakes, and this will give him his due.

                    All anyone has to do is look at Lynn Swann and his stats vs Bob Hayes and his stats to see how wrong this has been. About time they made it right.

                      Where's this ridiculous notion that Bob Hayes had only one good season come from?

                          Druggie perception kept him out of the HOF. Everybody knows that.

                            Made it right?... No one wanted to mention the elephant in the room except mrbowie. Seldom does someone with serious drug or gambling problems make it into the hall of fame in double time. Pete Rose can probably tell you more. Nevertheless he was a good man and a great great football player, it is great to see him in the HOF.

                              You cannot have Lynn Swann in the HOF and not Bob Hayes. That's simply wrong! Swann's career pales in comparision. Other than the fact he played on one of the greatest teams ever which gave him more national exposure. Hayes personal situation should have nothing to do with his NFL exploits. The powers that be did the right thing by adding him.
