I thought they do retire with one team. Isn't that the reason why big name players sign one-day contracts with their favorite team they played for (ex: jerry rice) ?
No, that is purely for sentimental reasons.

So what sport retires with one team ? I know baseball retires with all the teams the player played for. Not sure about basketball.

Baseball Hall of Fame chooses which team a player retires from, he player has no choice in the matter.
the football HOF just does player busts. i dont think they have a specific team they go in with like baseball does.

what does retiring have to do with the hall of fame
You usually want to retire with the team which drafted you, and the team you won your first Superbowl Championship with (unlike Marcus Allen-like situations where there's grudges with the owner/personnel).

My gut tells me that he'll go in a Cowboy, but Bill Walsh was like a father to Charles, took a chance on the guy when nobody else had wanted him before the 3rd round, and Charles came back upon Walsh's request for one last stint, retiring with the 49ers.

If Haley went in a Cowboy though I'd find it pretty s**tty, cause whether or not he and Seifert had got along in later years with the organization, Seifert developed him into a more functional pass-rusher out of the 3-4 (which is rarity amongst 3-4 defenses).
LOL looks like no HOF for Haley this year. -Not surprising.

We're talking about post-HOF (team) representation. Every HOF player usually represents one team in the 'sports world'/media monster as the threshold of his legacy.

-This is merely about bragging rights.
He just got snubbed.

Cortez Kennedy and Dermotti Dawson didn't, though.

What a f*cking joke. Complete bullsh*t. Way to go selection committee. You all suck.

this

the only sport that you go in as a member of a team is baseball where you have to pick a hat. football it's a bust of the player. even in basketball michael jordans washington wizards jersey's are on display.
Tickets Ordered... Aug 7th is gonna be a good day
Charles Haley was the reason the cowboys won 3 in the 90's. He is that X factor that put the Cowboys over the top. If he would have stayed with us it is very possible those 3 could have been ours and Young would have had 4 instead of one. He was a beast. How he isn't a first ballad hall of famer is beyond me.
