TO is a good one. Never a criminal, but...did do some things that made him a bad teammate. i don't really buy into the "bad role model" thing as a factor either. i'd still say put him in.It's shouldn't be we all know . If your a Diva or locker room cancer . HOF voters will hold that against you. Just look at TO taking a couple attempts to make the HOF.

things that would make me not put a guy in would be stuff that was a violation against football, the game itself. such as throwing games, things like that.
Just getting ready to make that call. Also, you could throw Michael Jordan in that category, the guy wasn’t exactly the role model his PR people made him out to be.Oh, good call. Like Pete Rose in baseball. The all-time leader in hits but bet on the games he managed that has a lifetime ban from the HOF. Hadn't thought of that.
This. Unquestionably. Whether they ever would have gotten in or not, Dillon shouldn't be kept out, Hernandez could never be considered.I went with "depends". The category not the adult diaper.
Corey Dillon was a major problem child in college. He once took on a squad of cops and won. Problems as long as your arm, but as a pro he didn't do anything worse than throwing his shoulder pads into the stands after his last game in Cincy. I think that explains my point. He was an angry dude that kept a lid on it off the field. He's a borderline HOF'er and might never get the call, but it shouldn't be because of what he did when he was 19.
On the other hand, Antonio Brown should be eligible, but never, ever get the votes just because of the special kind of asshole he has been. I like the idea of him griping about how he was misunderstood and mistreated for the rest of his life but nobody gives a shit.
