    Guys,

    There are some ideas we had on blast chat today to come up with a system for an OMFL Hall of Fame, that would be reserved for only the elite of the elite. . . .players and owners.

    Here are the ideas the we first had on how this would work:

    1) Any nominiee (owner or player), must have compiled 5 seasons worth of exeptional performance in the OMFL. This can be across multiple madden versions (madden 10 & 11 for instance) but they must have played atleast 5 seasons to be nominated.

    2) Towards the end of the season, all owners will have a chance to vote on a large nominee list. Out of these nominees, the ones with at least 17 owner votes (1 more than half) will be a 'Hall of Fame Finalist' and to be voted on during the offeason by the OMFL Board. Owners can vote on as many nominees as they think are worthy of HOF consideration.

    3) All finalists will be forwarded to the the Board for an offseason vote. The finalist must get at least 75% of votes from board members to be inducted into the hall of fame. (Currently there are 9 board members, so at least 7 board members must vote YES for the nominee to be inducted.)

    -------------------------

    Basically how this would work would be like this. Here are the initial list of nominees we present to the owners in week 17. (this is an example....)

    -Maurice Jones-Drew
    -Adrian Peterson
    -Tom Brady
    -Jerod Mayo
    -Chris Johnson
    -Coach Jeremy
    -Coach Dunlap
    -Coach Vishal

    We then put a poll up on the forums, allowing owners to vote on all these guys. Owners vote on nominees who they think are worthy of HOF consideration. You can vote on as many as you like. Here is the final vote total:

    -Maurice Jones-Drew (23 votes)
    -Adrian Peterson (17 votes)
    -Tom Brady (8 votes)
    -Jerod Mayo (3 votes)
    -Chris Johnson (1 vote)
    -Coach Jeremy (28 votes)
    -Coach Dunlap (17 votes)
    -Coach Vishal (17 votes)
    -Coach OBWhite (12 votes)
    -Coach Scikotic (1 vote)

    Remembering you need at least 17 votes to be nominated, the final nominees that are sent to the board for the finalist vote are:

    -Maurice Jones-Drew
    -Adrian Peterson
    -Coach Jeremy
    -Coach Vishal
    -Coach Dunlap

    Now the board votes, and you need 75% of board votes to be elected into the HOF. The board votes are as follows:

    -Maurice Jones-Drew (8 votes)
    -Adrian Peterson (6 votes)
    -Coach Jeremy (7 votes)
    -Coach Vishal (3 votes)
    -Coach Dunlap (5 votes)

    There are currently 9 board members, so there needed to be 7 votes in order to be elected to the HOF. So the Season 5 OMFL Hall of Fame Inductees would be:

    -Maurice Jones-Drew
    -Coach Jeremy

    ----------------------------------

    We think this would be a very cool idea to award the elite or the elite. We don't want to water this down. We want inductees to be very limited, to that special class of players and owners who have exemplifed excellence over the history of the OMFL.

    Hopefully, this will help the league have a great foundation and tradition moving forward long after we are all gone from the league!

    We want ideas to tweak this system, and constructive suggestions. There was a group of us on blast chat coming up with this, and we will foward our final recommendation to the board once it's complete.

    What do you think? How can this be improved. Let's make the OMFL Hall of Fame something special!
