There are times fans feel helpless.

That what they say or do falls on deaf hears. In some instances that’s correct. This is one of those times where fans can make a difference and the reward will be oh so worth it. This is a cause most Denver Broncos fans can get behind: Get Pat Bowlen into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Mile High Report recently finished our Week of Bowlen series highlighting why the Broncos owner needs to come out of the contributor subcommittee when it meets in the next few weeks, and then move to the full 48-person selection committee where he will/should/better get inducted.

So what can you do? As Adam Malnati and I said on the Mile High Report Radio Podcast, get the series to the people on the contributor subcommittee. Share it with them once or as often as possible, but make sure they see it. Bombard their Twitter accounts over the next few weeks. They will see it. Our Laurie Lattimore-Volkmann got you started with the tweet below. Copy and paste what she wrote or create something new, either way the point is to send it.

Get your point across so that you will be heard. There are times fans feel helpless. This isn’t one of them.

“Not only the success of the organization, which I think is second to none,” Broncos legendary safety and should-be-Hall of Famer Steve Atwater told me. “The number of winning seasons we’ve had versus losing seasons. The number of ballgames that we’ve won. The number of playoff appearances. The Super Bowls over the last 20 years or so. I think that speaks for itself. But in terms of all the high salaries and the TV contracts, he played an integral role in making that happen. So I don’t see how really anybody can say that he’s not. What more can he do? He’s great for the state of Colorado. He does charitable events all across the state. He’s great for the city of Denver. And we love him.”
