Oh, and a hearty FUCK YOU to all the NFL HoF voters responsible for him not being recognized.

Probably the biggest victim of the NFL media’s anti-Bengal bias.  What a player.

Ken Riley is a classic example of how Bengals players have to leave "no doubt" with Hall of Fame voters.      Bengal fans all know championship team's get more players in the HOF, but when you really start to compare the number HOFers vs.   bottome tier franchises it's evident there is a bias whether its intentional or not.

It's sad or fitting Willie Anderson is speaking up about this because he's one of the league's best Tackles ever, AND he'll never sniff the HOF.

Per Dehner, Riley’s death has woken the FO up to its failures in promoting its own greats and the long-rejected “ring of honor” idea might finally become a thing. Better late than never I suppose.
