The Mile High Report Hall of Fame is a new honorary section of the MileHighReport.com website dedicated to immortalizing significant figures in Denver Broncos history and Broncos Country. There are three groups of inductees - Broncos, Authors, and Members. Read more about the Mile High Report Hall of Fame (MHRHoF) in our announcement earlier today.
The Class of 2014 will be inducted the week of July 28th through August 1st. We need your help to nominate, select, and induct the first class! Selection occurs in three phases, culminating in a staff vote of finalists selected by MHR readers.
PART 1 - NOMINATIONS
In this phase, fans can nominate Broncos, Authors, and Members by leaving comments on the appropriate post. We encourage you to get your nominations ready before this week begins - the better the nomination, the better the chance a person will go on to the next phase! So over the next week leading up to Week 1, fans can get ready. They can pre-write their nomination text. They can even publish their nomination as a FanPost, then link to the FanPost in their nomination comment. We want Broncos Country to be as heavily involved as possible in this - this Hall of fame is for Broncos fans, by Broncos fans, after all.
- Monday July 7 - Broncos nominations begin
- Tuesday July 8 - Author nominations begin
- Wednesday July 9 - Member nominations begin
- Thursday July 10 - Sportsperson of the Year nominations begin
PART 2 - VOTING
In this phase, the most-recommended nominees from the Nomination Phase will be voted on by Broncos Country. Fans will be able to vote for more than one candidate, although they will have a limited number of votes.
- Monday July 14 - Broncos voting begins
- Tuesday July 15 - Author voting begins
- Wednesday July 16 - Member voting begins
- Thursday July 17 - Sportsperson of the Year voting begins
PART 3 - FINALISTS
The finalists are cultivated from the fan-voting stage. The MHR Staff executes this phase of the vote, though we will publish the list of finalists and encourage feedback from Broncos Country. This final step is limited to the MHR Staff for a few reasons - one major reason being the susceptibility for non-Broncos fans to interfere with any public poll for the Hall of Fame. This ensures that the final enshrinement is done by Broncos fans.
Finalists will be announced some time in August.
PART 4 - INDUCTION
The Class of 2014 is announced, and the Mile High Report Hall of Fame is installed! Tentatively scheduled following the Broncos' final preseason game.
