Here we go again with Richard Dent.
The guy belongs in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He was a better player than Howie Long, and Long has been inducted.
Hopefully, justice will be served and Dent will be elected Saturday.
Here is Dent on WMVP's "Waddle and Silvy" on Friday.
Waddle: What would it mean to you to be elected to the Hall of Fame?
Dent: "It would mean a lot to a lot of people [who] feel that you deserve to be there. It's one thing that you get there and some people don't think that but yet, because we are in the entertainment business, we entertain people. It's a pleasure for people to allow me to come into their home to entertain them for that weekend. They can be doing a thousand other things, It definitely means a lot to the people that are in my life. For me, it's all about telling a whole bunch of people thanks. I had just lost my high school coach about a month or so ago. ... You want to tell everyone what they meant to you."
Silvy: How are you planning your day? Are you going to wait around for the phone call or are you going to be doing something to distract you?
Dent: "Well, after being through this six or seven times, I'm just going to take it as a day. Obviously, you look forward to the call and are hopeful. Not long ago talked to [former Sun-Times and current Tribune NFL writer] Dan Pompei. Some of the things he had said are enlightening to the things that he wanted to talk about and the data that he has gathered. It looks good so it's one of those things that for me if it doesn't happen today it has to happen at some time. Most important of all I had a chance to change my mother's life when she was here. My mother passed in '89 but so many people in your life from players to friends to coaches ,people that kind of gave you a good outlook on life itself, you want to say thanks to those people. ...
[Just so everybody understands, Pompei will be presenting Dent's case to voters.]
