New to Mile High Report? Sign up to join the discussion and nomination process!
Who are the greatest Denver Broncos players, coaches, executives, and fans to ever don the orange and blue?
You tell us.
In our first-ever induction into the newly-minted Mile High Report Hall of Fame, you the fans get to choose who enters the virtual, hallowed halls.
For the full rundown (including rules) of the Mile High Report Hall of Fame, please see our announcement post last week. Today we are accepting nominations for the Broncos category. Anyone is eligible, but ideal Broncos candidates are those who had a real-life impact on the Denver Broncos organization. An ideal candidate is someone whose name is synonymous with the orange and blue, a name many members of Broncos Country would recognize. Broncos who are eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Denver Broncos Ring of Fame would be examples of candidates for the Broncos category in the Mile High Report Hall of Fame.
Members and authors of Mile High Report would not be considered here; there are separate categories for these Broncos fans.
How to nominate
In short, leave a comment!
You can nominate a member of Broncos Country by leaving a comment below. In the subject line, write, "I nominate [Broncos name]." In the body of your comment, leave your reasoning behind the nomination. You can also quickly leave your nomination in the subject line then work on the body of your nomination as a reply to your original comment.
You can also write your nomination material as 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. An example Fanpost nominating Randy Gradishar can be found right here; the last step would be to write your comment in this thread then link to that FanPost in the nomination body. I will fulfill that request in the comments below.
Comment subject: I nominate John Elway
Comment body (optional): John Elway is Broncos Country. I rest my case; nothing more needs to be said.
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.
How nominees advance
The top 15 candidates with the most recs (minimum 4 recs) will advance to the next phase of the selection process, fan voting, to begin Monday July 14th. Nominations close Saturday, July 12th at noon.
Good luck to every Broncos candidate, and thank you for helping us tell the tale of Broncos history from the fans' point of view!
