Pro Football Hall of Famers to boycott induction ceremonies

September 18, 2018 - 1:39 pm

A group of Pro Football Hall of Famers filed a letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, NFLPA Executive Director DeMaurice Smith and Pro Football Hall of Fame President David Baker stating that they will boycott future induction ceremonies if all Hall of Famers do not recieve health insurance and an annual salary from the league. Led by Chairman Eric Dickerson, the "Hall of Fame Board" members state that they were "integral to the creation of the modern NFL" as grounds for their demands. The 22-person board, which includes Dickerson, also includes league icons such as Jim Brown, Jerry Rice and Lawrence Taylor, as well as Sarah White -- the widow of Reggie White. Full story here.
