Terrell Owens’ decision to boycott his Hall of Fame induction ceremony didn’t sit well with the members that voted him in.

The wide receiver skipped the ceremony over the weekend and celebrated the accomplishment at his alma mater, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, instead. 

Now, the Hall of Fame is mulling a rule change that would ensure that never happens again. 

Per Pro Football Talk, the Hall of Fame is considering a requirement that possible inductees commit to showing up for the induction ceremony — before the final decisions are made.

PFT’s Mike Florio writes: 

The Hall of Famers want advance screening of the candidates along with a commitment that they will show up. The plan, as another source put it, would consist of having the 25 semifinalists sign an agreement that they would show up if selected. It’s currently believed that the adjustment to the procedures is virtually certain to happen.
