    Default VOTING: Hall of Fame voting process

    The current process for admitting players to the FOBL Hall of Fame reads as follows:

    1. Players shall become eligible two years after retirement. That is to say, if a player retires after the 2005 season, he shall be eligible for election during the 2007 season.

    2. During the offseason, an official committee of five (5) members will assemble a slate of candidates. The committee will accept suggestions and lobbying from league members, but should strive to only place serious candidates on the ballot. There is no minimum or maximum number of players that shall be on the ballot. The official ballot should be announced on or before opening day.

    3. After the ballot is posted, a period of two (2) real-time weeks will be allotted for discussion, debate, and lobbying.

    4. After that two-week period, the vote shall commence. For each player, the voter will have to vote either yes or no. There will be no limit to the number of yes votes that can be cast. Write-in votes are allowed. The voting period shall last one week. All owners and officially recognized vultures are eligible to vote.

    5. A player is inducted into the Hall of Fame if he received votes totalling seventy-five (75) percent of the total number of ballots cast.

    6. If a player receives less than ten (10) percent of the total vote, he shall lose his remaining eligibility. If a player is neither elected nor removed from the ballot after ten (10) seasons, he shall no longer be eligible.
    This amendment proposes the following changes (in bold):

    1. Players shall become eligible two years after retirement. That is to say, if a player retires after the 2005 season, he shall be eligible for election during the 2007 season.

    2. During the offseason, an official committee of five (5) members will assemble a slate of candidates. The committee will accept suggestions and lobbying from league members, but should strive to only place serious candidates on the ballot. There is no minimum or maximum number of players that shall be on the ballot. The official ballot will be announced on or before opening day.

    3. After the ballot is posted, a period of one (1) business week (Monday-Friday) will be allotted for discussion, debate, and lobbying. Each player will receive their own discussion thread, in order to avoid confusion and keep discussion on point. Each player should be debated on their own merits, not comparison to another.

    4. After that one-week period, the vote shall commence. For each player, the voter will have to vote either yes or no. There will be no limit to the number of yes votes that can be cast. Write-in votes are allowed. The voting period shall last one (1) week. All owners and officially recognized vultures are eligible to vote.

    5. A player is inducted into the Hall of Fame if he received votes totalling seventy-five (75) percent of the total number of ballots cast.

    6. If a player receives less than twenty-five (25) percent of the total vote, he shall lose his remaining eligibility. If a player is neither elected nor removed from the ballot after two (2) seasons, he shall no longer be eligible.
    The previous discussion thread is here: http://www.thefobl.com/forums/showthread.php?t=24638

    This amendment requires 24 "Yes" votes in order to pass. If passed, it will go into effect immediately.

    Voting on this issue closes at noon on Friday, December 7, 2007.

You're probably not gonna get hit by a bus. And you're gonna have to live with the choices you make for the next fifty years."
