Choose your favorite former author for the 2015-16 MHR Hall of Fame

New, comments

Nominate the former author who has helped you most understand this team, this sport and this insanity we call fandom.

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

It is very fitting that today is the day we consider the best of the best among our former staff writers because a year ago today, lifelong Broncos fan and long-time MHR writer BroncoMike suddenly passed away at the too-young age of 31.

Among our tributes, we honored BroncoMike by inducting him into the 2014-15 Class of the MHR Hall of Fame for Authors, along with founding author John Bena. Both MHR stalwarts joined Class of 2013-14 inductee Kirk Davis, aka Kaptain Kirk.

MHR Hall of Fame 2014-15

The Authors Hall of Fame is a Who's Who among Broncos bloggers, and our goal with this category is to honor those who have made this site the leading blog it is today. Former authors of the site will be immortalized right alongside their favorite players, a tribute to their devotion to Broncos Country.

For the full rundown of rules for the Mile High Report Hall of Fame, please see our announcement post last week. Today we are accepting nominations for the Authors category.

And if you haven't nominated or rec'd choices for the other categories, better do it soon, because nominations will close this Friday, July 1.

  • Nominate early-era Broncos
  • Nominate modern-era Broncos
  • Nominate Sportsperson of the Year
  • Nominate Members
  • Who is eligible?

    Authors are former MHR contributing writers, moderators and editors, also known as "staff members." To be considered, they must have been an active official staff member (listed on the Masthead of MileHighReport.com) for at least one year.

    Current active Authors are not eligible. Authors must be removed from association with Mile High Report for at least one year to be considered and remain in good standing as a Member of MHR (not banned).

    Kaptain Kirk, John Bena and BroncoMike are no longer eligible for nomination, but they are still taking congratulatory messages :)

    How to nominate

    Leave a comment naming the one person you would nominate for this award plus a brief explanation why he/she is deserving.

    You can nominate an author in one of three ways:

    • Write, "I nominate [author's name]" in the subject line and then write your reasoning behind it in the body of your comment.
    • Write nomination in the subject line then work on the body of your nomination as a reply to your original comment.
    • Create a Fanpost, which is highly encouraged to get even more eyes behind your reasoning for a candidate and give him or her more visibility and support. Then write a comment to your nomination linking to your Fanpost.

    Example nomination:

    Comment subject: I nominate Bill Watterson.

    Comment body (optional): If he were a Broncos fan, I can only imagine how perfect Calvin & Hobbes would have been.

    How to support a nomination

    Support a MHR Hall of Fame nomination by recommending (rec'ing) the comment. You can also reply to a nomination to add more content to a nominee's package. These will be compiled and included in the next phase, voting.

    To help a candidate become a finalist, it is best not to nominate him/her more than once since it could split the recs but instead rec, rec and rec some more. Also, only nominate one person per comment so others can easily rec too if they like the nomination.

    How nominees advance

    The top candidates with the most recs (minimum 4 recs) will advance to the next phase - fan voting - to begin in July.

    Good luck to every Author candidate, and thank you for helping us tell the tale of Broncos history from the fans' point of view!
