After being included in the list of finalists for only the second time last year, late Ravens owner Art Modell will wait at least another year for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Modell, who passed away in 2012, did not make the list of semifinalists for the Class of 2014 revealed Wednesday night. He had been named a semifinalist in eight of the previous nine years and was also a finalist in 2001. Despite being regarded as a pioneer in envisioning television playing a major role in taking the NFL to unprecedented heights, Modell’s candidacy for the Hall of Fame has been thwarted on multiple occasions in the past because of the controversial move from Cleveland to Baltimore.
Former Ravens left tackle Jonathan Ogden was inducted last season, an announcement that came in New Orleans the night before the Ravens won their second Super Bowl title in early February.
Here’s the list of 25 semifinalists for the Class of 2014:
Morten Andersen, Steve Atwater, Jerome Bettis, Derrick Brooks, Tim Brown, Don Coryell, Roger Craig, Terrell Davis, Edward DeBartolo, Jr., Tony Dungy, Kevin Greene, Charles Haley, Marvin Harrison, Joe Jacoby, Jimmy Johnson, Walter Jones, John Lynch, Karl Mecklenburg, Andre Reed, Will Shields, Michael Strahan, Paul Tagliabue, Aeneas Williams, Steve Wisniewski, George Young

  1. NFL HOF is flawed for many reasons. The tweeners who are in the hall of very good have to tapdance first through a bunch of electors most of which never even played the sport, and have issues with everything from A-Z outside the goalposts. If they can stay alive long enough then they go to a senior committee made up of x players they still have a chance but it seems to be politics as usual even then. When they put a guy in like Andre Tippet and leave a guy out like Mike Curtis,Jerry Kramer,or Ray Guy you have to wonder what the hell is going on there? We all in Baltimore know why Modell is persona non grata. Mike Curtis while a force on the field and all pro at outside and inside LB made his dislike of the newly formed NFLPU known and actually went to work during the unions first ever work stoppage. Politics is a dirty game played by dirty people.
