2015 Pro Football Hall of Fame Nomination Process: Contributor Factor

  
  
  

Have you heard the news? In 2015, the Pro Football Hall of Fame is changing the nomination process for potential Hall of Famers. Next year, there will be a contributor factor in addition to the normal Selection Committee.

Take a look at why the change was made and how this will impact the Pro Football Hall of Fame nomination and selection proccesses.

The NEW Nomination Process

NFL Pro Football Hall Of Fame Enshrinees Dinner HOFer 2 resized 600Over the years, the Hall of Fame has noticed a need to address the backlog of qualified Pro Football Hall of Fame candidates comprised of commissioners, owners and general managers. In the past 46 years, only nine contributors have been nominated into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and there are only 19 contributors enshrined at all.

The recent Class of 2014 held seven enshrinees in it and with the added contributor factor in 2015, class sizes will grow to eight members.

Candidates for the contributor enshrinee will be defined as someone who has made "outstanding contributions to professional football in capacities other than playing or coaching."

This contributor plan will correlate with the senior player rule; 2015 will offer two contributors and one senior player spots in the class, and 2016 will offer one contributor and two senior player spots. Future years will follow this pattern with the positions alternating.

There will be a subcommittee to select contributors and they will be presented to the 46 members on the Selection Committee. Nominees will still require 80 percent approval to become a part of the class.

The Selection Process

As for the Selection Committee and the overall process, not much is changing here. 

Each candidate is scrutinized and in order to be selected in the enshrinee class, he must receive at least 80 percent of approval from the Selection Committee at the annual meeting. Once they meet, the Committee holds a roster of 17 finalists to be discussed.

To ensure that this final roster of candidates holds both older and newer suggestions, and now contributors, the Seniors Committee and contributors subcommittee, are required to name their votes.

The other candidates are nominated via fan-vote and mail ballot.

Top 4 College Football Playoff Threats: Week 9

  
  
  

The 2014 college football season is moving right along! Week 9 is in the history books, Top 25 standings are being updated daily (you can view mine here) and the College Football Playoff Selection Committee will be releasing their first set of rankings tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. ET!

The next few weeks of football are going to fly by as College Football Playoff contenders begin to separate themselves from the pack and the Selection Committee begins to update us all weekly with where teams stand in their eyes.

This week, I'm going to breakdown the teams I believe are potential College Football Playoff threats. Based on the past nine weeks of results, these are the teams I believe are truly in the running. So, take a look at my picks and share your opinions in the comments below!

But first, the scores from Week 9:

Week 9 Scores

Top 4 College Football Playoff Threats

Based on the performances in Week 9 and in the prior weeks, these are the teams that I see clinching a spot in the first-ever College Football Playoff! And with four spots, it only seemed right to list only four teams. Take a look:

1. Mississippi State

Think what you want about Mississippi State, but these boys came gunning for a shot at the title this year. The team is currently undefeated in the SEC and their recent win against Kentucky has made me wonder whether anyone can change that. In my eyes, the Wildcats were the ones to give the Bulldogs a run for their money, and Mississippi State wasn't phased.

This team is filled with raw talent and they know how to move the ball as a unit. If they can keep up this pace, they'll be on the fast track to the 2015 College Football Playoff.

2. Oregon

Oregon has been in everyone's eyes since the beginning. The Ducks play good football and they can compete with the best of them. Although the team has some definite weaknesses that could ruin them if exploited, none of their opponents have been able to!

The Ducks have a hard schedule and their Utah road game is coming up. This will be a huge telling point for Oregon, but as of now, I think they're College Football Playoff potential.

3. Florida State

Never overlook the returning champions! FSU might have had a shaky few weeks player-wise, but they somehow always pull it together for the win. Regardless of their strength of schedule, FSU is undefeated in the ACC and that says something.

Their next few opponents are sure to up the ante (Louisville, Virginia, Miami), but if FSU can keep breezing by, I think the "returning" champs could become "reigning" champs. Time will tell!

4. TCU

After their recent performance against Baylor, I can feel some heads shaking on this one. But realistically, it was just the last 11 minutes. The Horned Frogs will likely be the top Big 12 team ranked and since the Big 12 doesn't have a championship game, TCU could earn playoff contention by their season alone. Don't count TCU down and out yet.

Be There When it All Goes Down!

The College Football Playoff Selection Committee announces their first set of standings tomorrow evening and before you blink, the four contenders in the first-ever College Football Playoff are going to be announced!

NFL International Series: Lions Comeback 22 Points to Defeat Falcons

  
  
  

NFL On Location NFL International Series London 3 resized 600If you watched the Atlanta Falcons take on the Detroit Lions yesterday in the NFL's first-ever morning game, then you're probably as shocked as we are! Atlanta started the game strong at Wembley Stadium with a 21-0 lead at halftime, but the Lions weren't ready to fly back to the United States with defeat. Detroit rallied with their second incredible comeback in two weeks and defeated Atlanta, 22-21.

Lions' quarterback Matthew Stafford concluded the game with 325 passing yards for 2 touchdowns; these TDs gave Stafford 120 TD passes, a Detroit record! 

Matt Ryan, Atlanta's QB, led the Falcons in the first half completing 14 of 17 passes for 160 yards and two TDs. However, a penalty, a dropped pass and clock problems later in the game resulted in a momentum loss for the team.

Where the Magic Happened

Detroit's kicker Matt Prater came through for the team, starting with a 22-yard field goal in the third quarter. Golden Tate then scored off a 59-yard reception from Stafford making the score, 21-10. 

In the fourth, Prater kicked a 20-yard field goal and Theo Riddick scored off a 5-yard pass from Stafford. Detroit then found themselves only two points behind Atlanta with the score, 21-19. Stafford searched for Tate on the two-point conversion after Riddick's score, but couldn't connect the pass.

With four second left in the game, Prater missed a 43-yard field goal attempt, but received a second chance due to a delay-of-game penalty. He scored his second attempt from 48-yards out and the Detroit Lions prevailed against the Atlanta Falcons, 22-21!

The Falcons blown halftime lead is tied for the biggest in the team's history and Atlanta has now been outscored 70-7 in the fourth quarter of their last six matches.

Both teams now return to the US to enjoy their bye week - Detroit hoping Calvin Johnson will be in good health before their game against Miami, and Atlanta picking up the pieces from their performance in London.

Stay & Play at Super Bowl XLIX with Luxurious Hotel Ticket Packages

  
  
  

If you've ever attending a top notch sporting event that draws in a large crowd from a variety of different locations, you know just how hard it is to book a decent hotel room. Prices sky-rocket, inventory goes quickly and before you know it, you're paying $500 a night for a cheap, outside-entry motel. Definitely not the relaxing, dream vacation you were thinking of.

Well, one of the greatest things about Official Super Bowl Ticket Packages direct from NFL On Location provided by QuintEvents, is the fact that luxurious hotel accommodations close to the stadium can be included!

No having to book your room yourself. No having to deal with incredibly high price points. No staying in a motel. Plus, group booking is easy!

Take a look at the benefits of opting to stay and play in Arizona for Super Bowl XLIX, and see the other inclusions that you'll find in Official Super Bowl Ticket Packages, in addition to accommodations!

Why You Need to Stay and Play for Super Bowl XLIX

With the biggest game of the year comes Super Bowl Boulevard and a plethora of other exciting events any football fan would kill to be a part of! By deciding to stay and play in Arizona, you can opt for a four-nights stay to be included in your package.

That gives you plenty of time to partake in Super Bowl XLIX activities and ensures you get the full Super Bowl experience while in town.

NFL International Series: Atlanta Falcons vs Detroit Lions Preview

  
  
  

London NFL On LocationA few weeks ago, the 2014 NFL International Series kicked-off with the Miami Dolphins defeating the Oakland Raiders 38-14 in London. This week, the Atlanta Falcons will host the Detroit Lions at Wembley Stadium for the second of three games abroad this year.

Not only is this game set to be historic for being played at Wembley Stadium, but it's also the first NFL game to be aired in the morning in the United States! The game has a 2:30 p.m. kick-off time in London so it will be aired at 9:30 a.m. ET in the US. Better set those alarm clocks, Falcons and Lions fans!

Detroit currently holds a better record than Atlanta in their perspective brackets in the NFC, but each team boasts different strengths and weaknesses. Pair those facts with the knowledge that neither team is really playing "at home," and we have all the elements for a fantastic football game. This international match can really go either way.

With that being said, let's take a look at each team's record, the match-up and the players who will hold a key role in their team's performance.

How to Attend the NFL International Series in 3 Simple Steps

  
  
  

The 2014 NFL season is flying by; we're already in Week 7 and the 2014 NFL International Series is in full force! The Atlanta Falcons and the Detroit Lions are preparing to take the field at Wembley Stadium in just a few weeks with the Dallas Cowboys and Jacksonville Jaguars following match-up in tow.

For most NFL fans, the International Series is overlooked. They see it as just one more away game on the schedule. However, it should be looked at as an opportunity! 

QuintEvents NFL On Location NFL International Series DI4U0456Not only does the NFL International Series offer a chance for fans to see teams playing on equal playing fields since they're both on an unknown field in a foreign climate, but it allows supplies you with a European adventure!

Think about it. How many people have it on their bucket list to attend a game of their favorite team? Every single NFL fan. Further, think about how many people have it on their bucket list to visit Europe - more specifically London, England? A good majority. I'd wager you want to go! 

So why don't you go? The NFL International Series offers a way to check two things off your bucket list in an epic way! 

So what holds you back? Costs? Flights? Planning things abroad? 

Well, luckily, there's solutions to all of those concerns. You can attend the NFL International Series and you will! All you have to do is follow these three easy steps!

1. Plan Your Flight

The first step in planning your trip to London for the NFL International Series is to find a flight to London! London has two major airports you could fly into: Heathrow and Gatwick.

Heathrow is the larger of the two airports and is the busiest airport in Europe by passenger traffic, the third bussiest in the world and handles more international passengers than any other airport in the world. It's about 14 miles from the center of London and it has a direct line to the Tube, or London Underground.

Gatwick is much smaller than Heathrow, but is still the second bussiest airport in the United Kingdom. With that being said, Gatwick offers more points-to-points flights compared to Heathrow, so if you're trying to find a direct flight from your hometown, odds are you'll be flying into Gatwick. It's located about 30 minutes from center city and also has a direct line to the Tube as well.

With online tools such as Flight Finder and KAYAK, it's very easy to find cheap flights on reputable airlines to your destination. And be sure to start a frequent flyer account once you book your trip so you can begin earning rewards on your travel to London!

2. Select Your Game & VIP Access

Once you secure your flight, you need to secure your tickets to the game. Luckily with NFL On Location's Official Ticket Packages to the NFL International Series provided by QuintEvents, this step is easy.

There are four different package levels to select from: 

  1. Diamond Level
  2. Sapphire Level
  3. Deluxe Level
  4. Standard Level

While each package shares the overarching theme of tickets, hospitality and amenities, the hospitality venue and seating location is different for each level. 

QuintEvents NFL On Location NFL International Series DI4U0005For example, Diamond level packages offer Club Level seating near the 50-yard line; the seats are wider and padded in the Club Level, and you'd also have access to Club Wembley and it's amenities. Within the Diamond hospitality area, you'll be invited to enjoy a complimentary, deluxe three-course meal with open beer, wine and soft drink selections for three hours pregame, during halftime and one hour postgame. Additionally, you'll receive an invite to the NFL Friday Night Kickoff Cruise where you can meet NFL players and cheerleaders, and enjoy complimentary food options and open beer, wine and soft drink selections. An official NFL gift bag is also included.

Comparatively, Standard packages offer seating in the upper level sideline and access to the exclusive NFL Pregame Party adjacent to Wembley Stadium three hours pregame. Within this hospitality area, you'd be invited to enjoy a complimentary pregame menu and open beer, wine and soft drink selections. An NFL gift bag is also included.

QuintEvents NFL On Location NFL International Series NFL LONDON 2Sapphire and Deluxe packages fall in the middle of these two regarding their seating level and amenities. 

Regardless of the package you select and the seating location you choose, you'll have an unobsctructed view of the entire game and an unparalleled NFL experience! And with
easy payment terms, you don't even have to pay for your entire package up front; you can space the payments out over a period of time making it easier on your wallet. 

Attending the NFL International Series has never been easier.

3. The Final Details

Once you've booked your flight and have secured your Official Ticket Package to the game, it's time plan the finishing touching to your trip - transportation and accommodations in London.

QuintEvents NFL On Location NFL International Series 220CecilShortsIndy110812Sure, both London airports are located right by the Tube, but you still have to purchase a transportation pass to access the underground. Well, with your NFL On Location
