    This means he does not have to compete against other players for for the HOF spots. Just needs an 80% approval from the HOF committee and he is in regardless the other finalists.

    And yet...the reason why there aren't more Raiders in the HOF is because of some of the member of the HOF committee who had hateful agendas against Al Davis specifically and the Raiders organization in general. There is a reason why it took the Snake so long to get in, even though everyone and their momma saw him as one of the true legends of the NFL.

    I hope that Tom Flores gets in, but in this day and age I never expect it to be an easy undertaking. This is a country where people would rail against giving out cool water to folks stranded in the Sahara desert.

    Long overdue. Still doesn't justify why some others have been snubbed.

    Had Al let him coach into the early 1990's I think Tom would have been inducted years ago. Al overreacted after the 1987 team lost 11 games. The 1987 players strike tossed a hand grenade in the Raiders locker room after the Raiders started strong.

    I believe Tom would have continued winning until he decided to call it a career.

    I hope he makes it in.
