The PFRA HoVG Selection Process

Postby JuggernautJ » Sat Jun 12, 2021 11:01 pm

The Process for HoVG Selection:
1. Any current member of the PFRA may submit 5 names in nomination for the HoVG.
This usually happens in April or May.

2. Each Committee member (9) then ranks their top 20 choices of those nominated from 1 to 20. Points are awarded in inverse order. The top 20 vote getters are submitted to the organization as finalists for the HoVG. This is done shortly after the nomination period is closed.

3. The body politic of the PFRA votes, usually by Halloween (October 31st).
They do so by selecting exactly 10 of the 20 finalists for enshrinement into the HoVG.

4. All of those who appear on 55% of ballots are elected, up to a maximum of 10. The minimum is seven so seven are elected even if fewer than seven receive 55% (the next closest vote getters).

Slightly less enigmatic than the Eleusinian Mysteries...
Let the dithering begin!

You are very welcome!

I have been asked specifically (and repeatedly) about whether or not the HoVG considers leagues other than the NFL when factoring in an individuals contributions to the game. Yes, other leagues are considered.

The directive is: "All candidates should be evaluated by everything they did in pro football."
