OJ Simpson's annual Hall of Fame invite still stands

22 Juillet 2017

A four-member Nevada parole board voted unanimously on Thursday to grant Simpson release from Lovelock Correctional Center where he has served almost nine years of a 33-year sentence stemming from a hotel room robbery in Las Vegas.

All inductees to the Pro Football Hall of Fame have a standing lifetime invitation to attend the annual enshrinement ceremony for new members - and since O.J. Simpson's bust still remains on display in the halls of Canton, he is no exception.

One question asked is whether or not Simpson, a 1985 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee, would be allowed to attend the annual event in the future if he chose to do so.

It's worth noting that Simpson hasn't actually attended the enshrinement ceremonies since being inducted in 1985, and since he's requested to live in Florida upon being released, he'll unlikely be making the trip any time soon.

Simpson rushed for 11,236 yards in an 11-year NFL career and he was the first running back in league history to top 2,000 yards rushing in a season with 2,003 yards in 1973. He is the only player to rush for 2,000 yards in a 14-game season. A Nevada parole board voted unanimously Thursday to grant Simpson his release from prison as early as October 1. She specifically noted that case was not relevant to Thursday's hearing and would not be considered when determining whether Simpson would be paroled because he had been acquitted.

The 70-year-old was once a superstar running back for the Bills.

In 1995, Simpson was acquitted of the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman after a highly-publicized trial.
