As arguably the one of the most popular and successful Oakland Raiders of all-time, Tim Brown is guaranteed to eventually earn a spot in the Hall of Fame. No former Raider is more respected or revered than Brown outside of say late owner Al Davis.
With that being said, Brown making it into the Hall of Fame is a big deal for the franchise and the legendary wide receiver that spent the majority of his career in Oakland.
Recently, the nominations for the Hall of Fame were announced with a number of former Raiders making the list including Brown. Although Brown is in the running for a nomination, the nine-time Pro Bowler expressed some frustration on Twitter over the NFL Network claiming the longtime Raider won’t have an easy road into the Hall due to playing in good weather during his career:
Wow! Just heard on NFL network that I will have a hard time making HoF because I played in good weather! Always wanted Al to build a dome!!

Brown clearly isn’t happy about the fact that he might be passed over for playing in good weather and it’s hard not to agree with his discontent on the matter. Of all the Raiders currently eligible for entering the Hall of Fame, no player is more deserving than Brown.
Along with Brown, former Raiders Tom Flores, Steve Wisniewski, Don Mosebar, Roger Craig, Jim Lachey, Ted Washington, Eric Allen, Albert Lewis and Jon Gruden have been nominated.
