For the second consecutive year, the Pro Football Hall of Fame is asking fans to voice their choice for who they think should be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, via a dedicated online fan forum.
Readers can make their voice heard by casting their ballot for Deion Sanders, Shannon Sharpe and Art Modell at www.fanschoice.com and may find themselves announcing the Fan’s Choice Class of 2011 in Dallas this February.
A team of Hall of Famers including campaign spokesman Steve Young, Harry Carson, Warren Moon, Roger Staubach and Jerry Rice (who was selected by fans for the inaugural Fan’s Choice Class of 2010), will be in New York City to kick off the campaign and cast the first ceremonial vote in Times Square while encouraging fans to let their voice be heard. A photo from the group casting their vote this morning is attached.
The Van Heusen Pro Football Hall of Fame Fan’s Choice campaign is educating and empowering fans like never before with the most in-depth coverage on the 130+ candidates, aggregated Hall of Fame news from across the country, robust discussion boards incentivized voting and opinions and insights from Hall of Famers. Highlights on fanschoice.com include:
FAN PAYOFF: Details on how to win will be revealed over the course of the season at www.fanschoice.com, but ultimately one lucky fan will earn the opportunity to announce the Fan’s Choice Class of 2011 alongside Steve Young in Dallas.
SMACK TALK: For those fans who want to voice their opinions beyond the traditional message board, they can "Phone It In." Users call a toll free number and their audio message will be posted to the website.
FAN’S CHOICE BLOG: Videos, events, photos and blog entries penned weekly by Hall of Famers.
VOTE: Users can vote as often as they want – the more you vote, the more you win. Users earn points for voting and getting their friends to vote.
PRIZES: Points earn you prizes – from signed helmets to discounts to entries into the sweepstakes.
Sweepstakes prizes include a chance to play at the Legends Golf Invitational at Pebble Beach or attend the 2011 Hall of Fame Induction weekend celebration.
Although the fans vote does not count toward the official selection, this is the place for fans to be heard and join the debate.
