Amen. Not to sound like a homer, but Jackson has numbers equal or superior to several of the linebackers already in the Hall of Fame, including a guy inducted this year.

I know he has his share of off-the-field troubles as a deadbeat dad, but I think his on-field performance warrants a spot in the HOF. He could have done much worse things off the field (see Lawrence Taylor).

Not sure this needs to be bumped again. You have 4 of the now 6 posts in this thread. You have the site in your sig which is more than enough. Not so sure getting these signatures is even going to do anything, but at least you are ahead of this one:
I am seeking 1,000 Jonas Brothers fans to sign this petition. Miley Cyrus was just placed in Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, I believe the Jonas Brothers should be placed in there as well. If you agree please sign the petition. The Jonas Brothers would be very grateful.

Yeah, seriously doubt a petition helps someone get into the HoF. I hate the LT comparisons and even the Irvin ones. LT's career was littered with alcohol and drug abuse but he was abusing himself and has risen above his past. Same case can be made for Irvin.

The real issue with Jackson is that few people, outside of Saints fans, want to see this guy's acceptance speech and to see him representing the NFL. Is this right? Maybe not but being a deadbeat dad of the magnitude that Jackson is is not even in the same ballpark as LT and Irvin's self-destructive natures.

If I had a vote I'd probably put him through but I can't say I blame the committee for not.

I'll make this my last post but......
The HOF encourages fans to not only nominate players on their own, but to show support in any way they wish, hence the petition. I figure a petition showing one thousand signatures from fans (so far in 4 countries and 27 states) shows that football fans appreciate what he did as a player. I'm a fan what can I say, and I thought it would be fun (and funny) to start a petition.
The money he owes in child support was based off his NFL pay, which was in the millions, so it is skewed, and it has not increased, he just has to pay it off. One missed payment could total thousands of dollars, I mean, Strahan pays like 10K a month plus a yearly sum. Anyway.
The argument for LT and Irvin is way off I think. Did they really just abuse themselves? What about the 70 thousand fans that packed stadiums to see those guys play, the kids that looked up to them only to hear them be arrested for drugs. I'm sure they were'nt affected in any way, or their respective families, their own children. I will say this, Irvin was way more of a disgrace personally than Rickey or LT, the dude rented a house in Dallas so he and other players get get hookers and party and do blow in privacy, that is a fact. Finding Jesus doesn't make it better, sorry.
So if the NFL can look past that, then all I am saying is, the numbers speak for themselves.
Like I said, I am done posting on this subject here at this site, I just wanted to keep the early signing momentum going before people are buried into the football season, since the deadline for this is Superbowl weekend when the committe meets.
