Peyton Manning had a challenge for his fellow inductees into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Sunday evening.
The legendary NFL quarterback is part of the seven man 2021 Pro Football Hall of Fame induction class.
During his speech, Manning had a challenge for the fellow members of his Pro Football Hall of Fame induction class.
“As members of this honored class, we have a responsibility to make our game stronger from the core playground to the most celebrated stadiums,” Manning said during his speech. “During the past few years, the game of football has been challenged by an explosion of sports and entertainment options, safety concerns, erupting social justice issues and a world-wide pandemic. Displaced fans has taken on an entirely new meaning as our stadiums have been shut down and fans shut out. We certainly shouldn’t walk away now. When we leave this stage tonight, it is no longer about us. It is about cultivating the game that has given so much to us. It’s about nurturing football to live and thrive another day, another year, another decade, another generation. It’s about guaranteeing that kids everywhere can learn, bond, grow and have fun with every flag pulled, every tackle made, every pass thrown, every run, block, sack and touchdown scored.”
Football fans across the globe are loving Manning’s message.
