    Cricketweb Sporting Hall Of Fame

    Bennett-Mørk productions presents, a blatant rip off of Goughy's idea, the Cricketweb Sporting Hall Of Fame.

    The cbf factor means we're going to go the same way as Goughy's idea.

    Every month anyone can nominate a player and then another two members must second that nomination for that player to go on the ballot.

    Once the players for that months ballot have been decided everyone gets to vote on 2 players to be inducted.

    A player is inducted if 75% of voters have them as one of the 2 players they voted for.

    If a player is nominated and seconded but not inducted into the Hall of Fame then their name will stay on the ballot for 3 votes, after which they must be re-nominated.

    Due to the broad area covered by the term "sport," we don't reckon it'd be possible to insert any criteria for nominations, so we just stuck in that the nominated person needs be seconded twice instead.

    Any questions? Problems? Comments? Nominations?

    Edit: Cricket to be excluded upon request. I suppose that's what Goughy's thread is there for.

    I assume that we'll cover all sports, aport from cricket? Would make sense IMO.

    Anyway, nominate Colin Meads.

    Vetoing Maradona; cheating drug addled lardos aren't hall of fame material for mine.

    I'll third Meads. & nominate Joey Johns.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    I read that as Steve Davies for a start, thinking you were meaning the footy commentator
