    January 2016 - Super Bowl, Pete Rose, Hall of Fame

    in Professional

    The latest Seton Hall Sports Poll, which polled 771 Americans (by landline and cellphone across the nation), was unveilved on January 28, 2016.  With the Super Bowl coming right as the presidential primary season “kicks off,” Americans said they were following the presidential contests by more than a 2-to-1 margin over football, with 60% choosing the political contests, and 24% the Super Bowl.  53% say the political races will be the most competitive, compared to 37% naming the Super Bowl. 


    The reasons for watching the Super Bowl are of course, varied.  40% said it was best explained because they were football fans, with 19% saying they were a fan of one of the participating teams, 18% saying it was a “big event,” and 10% interested in the commercials.  Only 2% said it was primarily because they had a bet on the game, although in another question, 13% said they participated in wagering on the game.


    Peyton Manning, whose name emerged recently as having been sent human growth hormones (the report was on Al Jazeera and was recanted by the source), was the subject of a question on whether that report changed opinions about him.  (During the polling period, the NFL announced it would investigate the charges).  A significant 11% said they thought “less favorably” of him, and 76% said it had no effect.


    Pete Rose, who will be inducted in the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame this year, was the subject of two questions, the first asking whether that was appropriate - to which 47% said yes, 33% no.  The second asked if he should be eligible to be elected to the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, to which 56% said yes, 28% no.


    The Seton Hall Sports Poll has been conducted regularly since 2006.

  • Timmon's Brothers Rock Historians The Rock ā€˜nā€™ Roll Hall of Fame An Overview

    in Music

    With the release of the next Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees, the Timmons Brothers reveal a list of names that could be labeled a Who’s Who in Rock ‘n’ Roll and all the artists share a common bond of not being inducted into its Hall of Fame. Although the number of artists not inducted  is too numerous to give them their due in one show, the two rock historians (David and John) will explore voting patterns, possible biases (and some may be surprising), the philosophy of defining a Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame, and other music related hall of fames. The artists being ignored span four decades and include  Paul Anka, Connie Francis, the Moody Blues, Paul Revere and the Raiders, Chicago, Grand Funk Railroad , Jethro Tull, ELO, Kool and the Gang, and you are encouraged to call in with  others. While the topic stirs debate, this program will be a catalyst to continue the discussion.

    Brett Favre makes NFL Hall of Fame on first ballot and heads the class of 2016

    in Sports

    Brett Favre leads the NFL Hall of Fame class for 2016. Favre was voted in on the first ballot, and becomes the 24th Green Bay Packer to be selected. The Chicago Bears lead all teams with 27 players enshrined. The class of 2016 will enshrine eight people that includes one owner, one coach, two quarterbacks (including Favre), a wide receiver, two offensive lineman, and one defensive player.


    The late Ken Stabler joins Favre at the quarterback position. Stabler known as the "Snake" passed away last July from cancer. He led the Oakland Raiders to the Lombardi Trophy in 1977. Owner Edward DeBartolo Jr will also be enshrined for his contributions to the NFL. Tony Dungy became the first African-American to win a Super Bowl. Marvin Harrison still holds the single season reception record of 143 and was a member of Dungy's Super Bowl winning team. Orlando Pace was a giant among men on the offensive line and is joined by the late Dick Stanfel who played for the Detroit Lions. With Stanfel being elected to the Hall of Fame, Packer fans may be shaking their head wondering why the great Jerry Kramer still has not received his validation. Finally, the lone defensive player elected was Kevin Greene. Greene recorded 160 sacks while playing for four teams. He started his career in 1985 with the Los Angeles Rams and ended his 15 year career in Carolina.
