DeBartolo On Long Nominee List For Pro Football Hall of Fame

Nancy Gay, San Francisco Chronicle

Several Bay Area NFL standouts, among them former 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr., are on the list of 124 modern-era players, coaches and contributors on the preliminary list of nominees to the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Class of 2008. DeBartolo is included in the list of contributors, along with former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue, who was among the 17 finalists for the 2007 class. Hall of Fame selectors will choose 25 candidates who will advance as semifinalists. That list will be announced in late November. The 25 modern-era semifinalists will be reduced to a ballot of 15 finalists, along with two previously selected senior candidates, Marshall Goldberg and Emmitt Thomas.

The 44-member selection committee will select the 2008 class during its annual meeting Feb. 2 in Phoenix, the day before Super Bowl XLII. In addition to DeBartolo, here is a list of other former 49ers and Raiders under consideration: Raiders: quarterback Jim Plunkett, wide receiver Cliff Branch, offensive lineman Steve Wisniewski, tight end Todd Christensen, defensive backs Eric Allen, Lester Hayes and Albert Lewis and punter Ray Guy (a 2007 finalist).
49ers: running backs Roger Craig and Ricky Watters, wide receiver Dwight Clark, tight ends Russ Francis and Brent Jones and defensive linemen Fred Dean, Richard Dent, Chris Doleman and Charles Haley.
