NFL Cancels Hall of Fame Game

Well the good news is the NFL owners voted on Thursday to end the four month NFL lockout 31-0 with the Oakland Raiders abstaining (is anyone stranger than Al Davis). On the down side the players look like they will not vote Thursday to approve the deal. In addition NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell cancelled the Hall of Fame Game that was to be played between the St. Louis Rams and Chicago Bears on August 7th in Canton, Ohio. The Commissioner stated that the Rams and Bears wouldn’t have ample time to prepare. Marshall Faulk will be inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame on August 6th, hopefully the lack of a game that weekend will not detract from the ceremonies.
