Monk For The Hall Video

This video is being posted on several sites right now. It is a comprehensive look at refuting the arguments against Monk's induction into the HOF. I can't say enough about the video to do it justice. All I know is that when Monk makes it in, I'm goin to Canton.

Re: Monk For The Hall Video

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR POSTING THAT!!!! Not to sound all sappy, but I nearly got choked up at the end of that.

My cousin and I were just talking about the summer we went to Art Monk's football camp (which served as the basis for my screenname) when we were kids. I got to meet the man a couple of times, and that is something I will truly never forget. I was too young to remember a lot of games with him, but I do know that he was the first person that I really paid attention to on any team, so that video was just great.

Now, who's up for flooding Peter King and Dr. Z's mailbox with that?

Re: Monk For The Hall Video

You know, it's odd that everyone I have talked to about Monk says he deserves the hall, but for some reason he's not in.
Maybe if he had the mouth of a Micheal Irvin then he'd be in already...goes to show you how where the quiet team players in this world end up.

Re: Monk For The Hall Video

Wow. How is this man not in the hall of fame.

I dare you to watch this and vote against him Dr. Z.

This is the year.

I agree...but they somehow find a reason not to do it. He was a true professional...if we had a team full of Art Monk's, we'd win the super bowl every year!

Peter King has switched. He has said he is voting for Monk and publicly stated his reasons for doing so. The people we need to get this to are the other voters - each team's local rep and the rest of the at-large guys (there are 10).

B/c he's an obstinate bastard - Dr. Z will NEVER vote Monk in. I wouldn't be surprised if the vote this year is 41 - 1.

I am betting that, b/c it has been delayed for so long and b/c he is such a class act, Monk's induction will be major cause celebre' among the talking heads.

Re: Monk For The Hall Video

Great video i was amazed at how much old footage their was used in the video. Thank you to whoever took the time to make it. When Monk finally gets in i think that he will recognize all of his fans support, even after all the years that he has been retired. Cant wait for it to be official!!!!!!!!

Re: Monk For The Hall Video

it is amazing to me that Monk is not in the Hall. My issue with this is why aren't the people with "Football inteligence" voting or have a majority of the say in who is voted in. The writers most of whom have never suited up for any professional or collegient sporting event in their life should not be given the end all be all power of hall of fame voting. It is a shame that Monk was not in on his 1st attempt. it is a crime against the those all ready in the hall and the hall of fame itself

Re: Monk For The Hall Video

This video is amazing. I had chills watching some of those great catches during the glory days of old. This is the year he finally gets what he deserves.

Awesome video that brought back some great memories. How Monk is not in the HOF is beyond me.

Re: Monk For The Hall Video

Here's some additional info from ES on what the author plans to do with the video. (Post #47)

EXTREMESKINS.com - Video Evidence: The Case For Monk in The HOF

Quote:
I sent a DVD of this to Len Shapiro, who makes the case for Monk each year with the HOF voters. He was aware that I was making this and was looking forward to seeing it. He probably got it yesterday, but I have yet to hear from him. I'm hoping he gives me the go-ahead to send physical DVDs to all the HOF voters. Since it's about 20 minutes long, I think it MAY be too long for him to show in its entirety for his presentation, so it'd be good if the voters could watch it BEFORE they go in to vote.

I made the vow last year that if Monk got snubbed again I would do this. I've collected a lot of games over the years, and I knew I had the footage. So, over the past year, I went through about 150 games in my spare time, grabbing any footage I thought was relevant and any comments about Monk. Then I had to whittle it all down. It was a labor of love, that's for sure, and I'm glad you guys have enjoyed it."

I'd say send the link to everyone you can, because we don't have too long before the vote (February 4). All I ask is that you hold off FOR NOW deluging the voters with the link. I just want to hear from Shapiro first and see what he thinks. Hopefully I'll hear from him this weekend.

LET'S GET THIS GUY IN ONCE AND FOR ALL!! IT'S WAY PAST TIME!!!

HAIL!!
