He's had some great things to say about Monk and Green.

All this hate isn't good for anybody.
Any mention of a Cowboy brought a showering of boos. It was a Redskin hometown crowd. I don't think it was hate, just the usual boos that a Cowboy brings to a Redskins crowd. I think Irvin took it in stride.

When Renfro was introduced, he got a chorus of good natured boos, laughed and acted surprised and the crowd responded with laughter back.

As for Irvin, I think there is a lot of anger that he got in before Monk.

Re: Thank You to all who attended HOF

Let's get Chris Hanburger into the Hall of Fame! Now that Art Monk has been inducted, Redskins fans need to focus their attention and energy on the next most qualified Redskin for the Hall of Fame. That player is NOT Russ Grimm, Joe Jacoby, Gary Clark, Larry Brown, Jerry Smith or Pat Fischer. I love all those players, but the player most qualified for induction is Chris Hanburger! Nine-time Pro Bowler. Four-time All Pro. 1972 NFC Defensive Player of the Year on the Redskins first Super Bowl team. Handpicked by George Allen to call defensive signals for one of the best defenses in the NFL during the 1970's. Let's not forget those last two facts! Everyone mentions the Pro Bowl number (9), but most people forget that he was NFC Defensive Player of the year in 1972 and George Allen's defensive signal caller for 5 years! The NFL Network recently ran an NFL Films special on the 10 best players not in the Hall of Fame. The 10 players they picked were Ken Anderson, Steve Tasker, Alex Karras, Ricky Watters, Ken Stabler, Bob Hayes, Jim Marshall, Chris Carter, Derrick Thomas and Jerry Kramer. Most of those players (except Tasker and Watters) should probably be in the Hall of Fame, but Chris Hanburger is more qualified than anyone on that list except Chris Carter, and none of them has as many combined Pro Bowl and All-Pro selections (13) as Hanburger. Of all the former NFL players who are eligible to be selected by the Veterans Committee, Chris Hanburger is by far the strongest candidate in the field! Let's put an end to this gross oversight and get Chris Hanburger inducted!

Re: Thank You to all who attended HOF

Being there and feeling the energy in that crowd .. booing Irvin was priceless ... I introduced my fiance to the power of the Skins' .... Monk got one hell of an ovation, my voice was out for 2 days after the enshrinement, felt like I was at a game I was screaming so loud .. HAIL to all the fans that made it out and HAIL to all the fans that saw just how special this even was on TV ...

anybody else see that dallas fan get booed right out of the enshrinement pre-party tent ???? don't bring that blue n' silver in our house EVER

It truly was a tear-jerking, awe inspiring ceremony. Thanks to all who went, I am pissed I didn't make it but you guys represented the class of our organization to the fullest. Anyone know where to get a dvd of the ceremony?

I DVR'd it from home. They did a great job at capturing the fans & Monk's humble reply to the ovation.

I didn't notice that, but I couldn't help but hear the overwhelming "BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!" when they announced his name! LOL =)
