There is very little that can make me think less of the Pro Football HOF than I already do.

But Pat Bowlen getting in, would be one of the rare exceptions. If he gets in, I am gonna freakin’ LOSE IT !!!

Owners have no place in there to begin with, let alone a 2x CHEATING owner....there is no lower form of cheating, than when it comes from Ownership.

With that said, consider him a lock....

Since we are potentially going to see a 2X CHEATING OWNER elected into the Pro Football HOF in a few short weeks, I figure now is a good time to point out something equally ridiculous involved with the NFL. The integrity of those appointed to the Competition Committee.

Where else would be fitting to start than at the top, the Chairman of the Competition Committee...Rich McKay in 2015 served a suspension after his team was caught piping in fake crowd noise into their stadium for an unfair advantage (aka “cheating”). After his suspension was served, naturally he resumed his position as Chairman of the Competition Committee.

Other members of the Committee include:

Marvin Lewis - putting aside the fact that the guy must have had some serious blackmail material to keep his job as long as he did, I challenge you to find a Head Coach (past or present) that harbored more convicted felons than Lewis did during his tenure. If someone was arrested and cut from his team, you could take it to the bank that if that cut player had any future in the league at all, he was headed to the Bengals. The final minutes of the Bengals 2015 playoff game against the Steelers is perhaps the greatest example of everything professional sports should NOT be.

Mike Tomlin - shares the record for the 2nd highest fine levied to a Head Coach, after he stepped into the field of play, impeding a kickoff return during a game with playoff implications.

John Elway - a key member involved in the 1998/1999 Broncos cheating scandal, as he was one of the players involved in the deferred payments in an effort to circumvent the pesky salary cap. After lawsuits prevented Elway from acquiring partial Ownership of the Broncos (in conjunction with the aforementioned cheating scandal) Elway was given a Front Office position despite having NO prior experience. Where better of a place to put a guy who probably shouldn’t even have his job, than a Committee of what should be well respected seasoned veterans.

Sean Payton -  one word...Bountygate. Payton is the only Head Coach in NFL history who served a season long suspension. He was added to the Committee in 2017, well after his legacy as a cheater was in the books, so it wasn’t even a case of him being a holdover (like McKay).

Honorable Mention - One of the longest tenured members of the Competition Committee was former Head Coach, Jeff Fisher. Dirty play on the field in many cases ties back to Fisher in one way or another. So after Pat Bowlen gets enshrined, let’s make sure the rest of the above get in the HOF as well...and for crying out loud, can we get Bill Belechick on the Competition Committee already ???
