What does it mean to be a member of the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and Museum?

"I am truly honoured and blessed to be included in this fraternity of not only great football players but great men as well. The game of Football taught me structure, rules and the ultimately how to be a man. One must understand that fame and glory are fleeting, but inclusion into this sacred Hall pays homage to the dedication, hard work and sacrifices necessary for this to happen. To be recognized and immortalized in the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and Museum is something that my children and their children will remember and be proud of."--Chris Walby
