Eddie DeBartolo has got to get into the Hall of Fame this time, right?

For years Eddie DeBartolo Jr. has been close to enshrinement into the Hall of Fame but has always been left out. I thought that his chances of getting in were getting slimmer. He’s been a presenter for some of the inductees and those men have called for his enshrinement as well.

Now as he is a finalist for the contributor category, there is a good chance he gets into the Hall of Fame. He helped lead the 49ers dynasty with five Super Bowl titles and had such a major influence during that time period. When talking about owners in the NFL, DeBartolo is one of the greatest — if not the greatest.

He made major contributions to the league and to the 49ers. The way he handled the team and the success is unmatched and I am still shocked he’s not in. But now with this news, there is a good chance.

DeBartolo doesn’t have to compete with former players for enshrinement. He’s in this separate category and there is a likelihood he will get enough votes.

We won’t count the chickens before they hatch, but all signs point to a very happy Eddie DeBartolo the night before the Super Bowl. I expect it.
