Becoming a Hall of Famer – Hall of Famers
The Pro Football Hall of Fame’s 49-person Selection Committee is charged with the vital task of continuing to be sure that new enshrinees are the finest the game has produced. (See list below).
FAQ about the Hall’s selection process
The Committee consists of one media representative from each pro football city — with two from New York and two from Los Angeles, as those cities each have two teams in the National Football League. There are 17 at-large Selectors, who are active members of the media or persons intricately involved in professional football, including one representative of the Pro Football Writers of America.
All appointments are open-ended and approved annually by a majority vote of the Hall of Fame’s Board of Trustees. The Selection Committee meets annually before the Super Bowl to elect new members. There is no set number for any class of enshrinees, but the Committee’s current ground rules do stipulate that between four and eight new members will be selected each year. Every candidate is carefully scrutinized and must receive at least 80% approval of the Selection Committee at the annual meeting before he can be elected.
When the Selectors meet to name the newest members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, they will have before them a roster of 18 finalists, along with detailed biographies on each. The 18 Finalists include 15 Modern-Era Nominees, one Coach Nominee, one Contributor Nominee and one Senior Nominee. Coach, Contributor and Senior Finalists are selected by special nine-person committees appointed from the full Selection Committee.
The Coach, Contributor and Senior Finalists are voted on for election independent of all other finalists. Like all nominees, Coach, Contributor and Senior Nominees must receive 80% approval of the Selection Committee for election.
The provision allowing for one Coach Nominee, one Contributor Nominee and one Senior Nominee was approved by the Board of Trustees as a four-year temporary measure starting with the Class of 2021. At the end of the four-year period (Class of 2024), the process will be reviewed.
The other Finalists will be the survivors from a preliminary list of candidates the full Selection Committee will have screened by mail ballot. Any fan may nominate any qualified person who has been connected with pro football in any capacity simply by writing to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. (Send nominations by U.S. mail to: Pro Football Hall of Fame, Attn: Nominations, 2121 George Halas Drive, Canton, OH 44708). The only restriction is that a player and coach must have last played or coached at least five seasons before he can be considered. For example, a candidate for the Class of 2022 must have concluded his career not later than the 2016 season.
There is no mandatory retirement period for a Contributor. Senior candidates are those players whose careers ended at least 25 years ago. Every nomination received will be processed and forwarded to the Selection Committee.
It is important to emphasize that the Hall of Fame itself has no say whatsoever as to who is or is not elected to membership. The only function of the staff is to process the nominations as they arrive and to coordinate the annual meeting.

Hall of Fame FAQs | Premier League
What is the Premier League Hall of Fame?
The Premier League Hall of Fame recognises and honours former players who have an exceptional record of on-pitch success and have shown significant contribution to the League since its inception in 1992. This will be the highest individual honour awarded to players by the Premier League.
The Premier League Hall of Fame will exist online with content dedicated to celebrating the careers of those who have been inducted. Only players who are retired are eligible. In order to be eligible for induction in 2021, players must have been retired by 1 August 2020.
How many players will be inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame?
In 2021, the Premier League Hall of Fame will welcome eight inductees. Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry will be the inaugural Premier League Hall of Fame inductees. Fans will be invited to select an additional six former players from a 23-man shortlist. From this shortlist, six additional former players will be inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame via public and panel vote.
Does that mean those who are not voted in for this year will automatically be on future shortlists?
Not necessarily. New players will retire each season, automatically making them eligible for the Premier League Hall of Fame, thus affecting the overall shortlist.
What are the selection criteria for the Premier League Hall of Fame?
To be eligible for the 2021 Premier League Hall of Fame, players must have been retired by 1 August 2020 to be considered for induction. Only a player’s Premier League career is considered in their candidacy, not their performances in other competitions during the Premier League era.
Players must have made a minimum of 250 Premier League appearances unless they have achieved any of the following milestones:
- Made a minimum of 200 Premier League appearances for one Club
- Been selected to any of the Premier League Team of the Decade or 20-Year Anniversary teams
- Won a Premier League Golden Boot or Golden Glove
- Been voted as Premier League Player of the Season
- Won three Premier League titles
- Scored 100 Premier League goals or recorded 100 Premier League clean sheets (GK only)
When will the shortlist for the additional Premier League Hall of Fame inductees be announced?
The shortlist will be announced during a special Hall of Fame show, which is being broadcast on Sky Sports and Premier League digital channels from 18. 00 BST on Monday 19 April. Fans can then vote for the six players they would like to see inducted into the Hall of Fame at www.premierleague.com/halloffame.
How will the additional six inductees be selected from the 23-man shortlist?
An additional six inductees will be decided by a combination of public vote and votes from the Premier League Awards Panel.
How is the Premier League Hall of Fame different to National Football Museum’s English Football Hall of Fame?
The National Football Museum’s English Football Hall of Fame rightly celebrates the entire history of English Football and the English football pyramid.
The Premier League Hall of Fame celebrates players who have made significant on-pitch contributions to the Premier League only. The Premier League Hall of Fame will exist online and inductees will be selected by public and panel votes.
Will the Premier League Hall of Fame be displayed in a museum?
No. The Premier League Hall of Fame will exist online, with dedicated content on www. premierleague.com. Inducted players will receive a medallion engraved with their name and the year of their induction.
Golf Hall of Fame lowers age eligibility requirements for induction
SAN DIEGO — Tiger Woods is a good bet to be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2021.
That’s because officials announced Tuesday that the Hall of Fame is lowering its age to be eligible for induction to 45 or three years retired. Woods will turn 45 in December and a player is eligible if he or she is the minimum age by the year of the ceremony.
The minimum for induction is 15 wins combined on the major tours. Given that Woods has 15 majors among 82 total wins, he will be a lock to be inducted.
“We believe these changes will enhance the Hall of Fame in many ways and bring greater attention to the most deserving players at a time in their careers when they are still competing at the highest level,” said Greg McLaughlin, the World Golf Foundation CEO. “We look forward to the future of the Hall of Fame as we ensure it remains a meaningful way to recognize the game’s greats.”
The Hall has undergone several changes over the years, including induction age. For a time it was age 40, which is why players such as Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els were inducted long ago. It was then changed to 50 and now back to 45.
Besides Woods, other players who will now be eligible in 2021 include Jim Furyk, Padraig Harrington, Lee Westwood and Henrik Stenson. Women who will be eligible are Dottie Pepper, Jane Geddes, Sophie Gustafson and Liselotte Neumann.
Bubba Watson, Sergio Garcia, Adam Scott and Justin Rose would be eligible in 2023.
To be eligible, a player must also have a minimum of 15 official victories (on any of the world tours) or a minimum of two wins among the major championships and the Players Championship.
Woods, who is playing his first tournament of 2020 this week at Torrey Pines, would nearly be eligible just on his California tour wins alone. He has 14 PGA Tour wins in the state, including eight at Torrey Pines. He will be trying to set the PGA Tour career record of 83 wins this week.

International Swimming Hall of Fame Hall of Fame Honoree Criteria
- Athletes shall not be eligible for induction unless they have officially been retired for at least four years, or at least one Olympic quadrennial from their primary field of international competition. “ Athletes ” refers to swimmers, open water swimmers (FINA), divers, water polo players and artistic (synchronized) swimmers and Paralympians.
Note: Athletes who have reached the age of 30 and have elected to not officially retire due to participation in professional leagues or international circuits may be considered for induction if they otherwise meet the eligibility requirements.
Masters and Marathon swimmers (Non-FINA) may be nominated into ISHOF without retirement after being inducted in their respective Hall of Fame (Masters International Swimming Hall of Fame – MISHOF or International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame – IMSHOF). These nominees must meet the same criteria as what is listed under the ISHOF category in which they qualify. In other words, a Master Swimmer must meet the same criteria as all swimmers being nominated and not just Master Swimmers. Same with Marathon Swimmers who must meet the same criteria as all Open Water Swimmers to be inducted in the International Swimming Hall of Fame. There are no subcategories between Olympic athletes or coaches and Master or Marathon athletes or coaches when it comes to being inducted in the International Swimming Hall of Fame.
- Note that male and female candidates are grouped together, alphabetically. Male and female candidates should be voted upon as one combined group per category.
- A coach must have a significant international record and have been coaching at least 25 years.
- A contributor must have been in aquatics at least 20 years and have had a significant international impact. Athletic achievement should NOT be considered, contributions are to the overall improvement or development of “international” sport through leadership, journalism, invention or other area of great, outstanding impact.
- The Pioneer category was created to honor great achievements or advancements in aquatics that have been overlooked. These include special circumstances, such as interruptions caused by war or politics, barrier-breaking moments, societal changing events, etc.
- All Nominees must exemplify the highest athletic moral and ethical standards. Any past or current violations of the spirit and principles of Olympism, such as doping, DUI’s, domestic violence, drug abuse, accusations of sexual offense etc. have to be disclosed at the time of nomination. If and when ISHOF is presented with substantial or compelling evidence, a criminal charge, conviction or admission of guilt, the ISHOF board of Directors will consider all options within our means and resources that will enable us to ensure the integrity of our Hall of Fame.
- Remember the key word – “international”. Emphasis should be placed on the international impact made by the nominee, not just within his or her own country.
Voting for athletes should be based on the items in the following order of importance:
• Olympic gold medals
• World Records
• Number of Olympic medals won, Olympic Games attended & Olympic finals achieved.
• World Championship gold medals, Numbers of total World Championship medals won
• World Cup, Grand Prix gold medals
• Regional Championships won (European Championships, Commonwealth Games, Pan American Games,
Asian Games, Pan Pacific, South American Games, etc.)
- Consideration should be given to athletes failing to participate in Olympics because of non-Olympic years due to war (1916, 1940, 1944), boycotts (1980, 1984) injury, career interruptions and non-Olympic events such as the individual medley (I.M.) prior to 1964, etc.
All things being equal, please consider the age of the individual and who may have come first in terms of performance or service. We want to honor individuals still alive, so older nominees should be favored over younger and still active individuals. Deceased persons should only be considered, if there is a compelling reason that will ensure significant representation at the ceremony.
90,000 Why induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Last week, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees were announced. Among the fifteen names presented in the list, there was a place for such legends as Radiohead, The Cure, Def Leppard, Stevie Nicks, Kraftwerk. Thus, the annual round of the struggle for a ticket to immortality is declared open.
Every time it goes roughly the same. In the fall, a jury of thirty judges announces the list of nominees. This list is sent to a committee of about a thousand people to vote.Ordinary fans also have the right to vote, but their opinion is not taken into account when selecting the winners.
In a couple of months the names of the chosen few become known to the general public – usually there are five of them. In the spring, the City of Cleveland, home to the Museum of Glory, hosts an Inclusion Ceremony. The artists play a couple of their biggest hits and give ceremonial speeches. Someone is happy for their favorite group, someone is upset because of her, and for six months everyone calms down.
But sometimes things don’t go according to plan.For example, Steve Miller, in a backstage interview, suddenly berates the organizers of the show for their disrespectful attitude towards the artists:
“When they told me that I won, they said:” You have two tickets – for you and for your wife. Want another one? It costs 10 thousand dollars. Sorry, but that’s the only way. ” What about my group? What about their wives? “
A few months later, Steve Miller visits host Howard Stern on the radio and announces that he intends to investigate the organization’s activities and find out what the organization is spending the proceeds on.
The described case occurred in 2016, but similar precedents have happened before. The Sex Pistols, inducted into the 2006 Hall of Fame, did not attend the ceremony at all. Instead, band leader John Lydon sent a fierce letter in which he bluntly accused the jury of lobbying: “You may be anonymous as a judge, but you are still people from the music industry.”
He has reason to say so. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame prefers not to advertise this fact, but both jury committees, along with artists and journalists, include representatives of record companies.Moreover, the founder of the organization, Ahmet Ertegan, was the head of Atlantic Records, one of the major American music labels. Of course, he secured a place for himself on the judging committee.
The oddities don’t end there. Suffice it to recall that since the inception of the Hall of Fame, only one objective criterion for the selection of performers has emerged: at least 25 years must have passed since the release of their debut disc. There is also, however, an extremely vague wording that when voting, members of the commission take into account “the scale of the artist’s influence on the music of other artists, the length of his career and the depth of his work, innovation in style and superiority in technique. “
Jon Landau, chairman of the jury and manager of rock star Bruce Springsteen, said much more honestly: “We have done a great job to keep all the processes secret. Everything remains behind closed doors.”
But at times, some details still leak out. So, the head of the Tenth Street Entertainment label Allen Kovacs once admitted that he smuggled his Bee Gees clients into the Hall of Fame in 1997. This event literally revived the collective’s commercial success: if last year the sales of their records barely exceeded 200 thousand copies, now they have easily sold over a million copies.
A similar story happened with Cheap Trick, with which the modern listener is familiar mainly from the hit of the seventies “Surrender”. In April 2016, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in the same month their new album entered the Top 40 of the American chart for the first time in 27 years.
The music industry is familiar with the magic effect, and every year the managers of the biggest labels fight for a spot in the top five. Therefore, the final result of the vote often depends not on the real significance of a particular artist, but on a tangle of personal ambitions, greed for profit and personal preferences of the referee commission.
Unsurprisingly, the Museum of Glory quickly found space for performers like Madonna and Green Day. And until now there was no corner for such great electronic bands as Depeche Mode and New Order. For indie rock pioneers The Smiths and Pixies. For heavy metal mastodons Judas Priest and Iron Maiden.
In other words – the words that John Lydon said before the Sex Pistols split up: “Have you ever felt that you were deceived?”
Depeche Mode and Nine Inch Nails inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.How it was – Playbill
Back in January this year, the United States announced the names of performers who will enter the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Among them were: rapper Notorious B.I.G., singer Whitney Houston, Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, T. Rex and the Doobie Brothers. The awards ceremony was supposed to take place on May 2, but due to the pandemic, the organizers postponed it for six months and the honoring of the artists took place only on November 7 in the evening.
To the credit of the organizers, it should be noted that they did not conduct online performances of artists, realizing that this would not replace live, but created a series of mini-documentaries dedicated to the life and work of each musician who was honored to enter the Rock and roll this year.The show kicked off with a speech by Foo Fighters founder Dave Grohl, who addressed viewers with a message that an unconventional ceremony awaits them this year.
“Our rock ‘n’ roll family, like many others, unfortunately cannot get together in person to hold the ceremony in 2020.” – he said. “However, we honor artists by telling their inspiring stories and showing how much they have influenced us all.”
In addition, this year’s show did without the protracted welcome speeches that have always distinguished the ceremony: only the main members of the groups or relatives of deceased artists were given the floor, and their speech was limited to an average of 80 seconds. The only exception was the group Depeche Mode, whose members spoke out in full.
The ceremony also honored the memory of Eddie Van Halen, who died in October. “Eddie was an extremely gifted musician. His style and sound were completely unique, ”said Guns N ‘Roses guitarist Slash. “He had a huge impact on guitar playing, and I don’t think there is anyone who has picked up a guitar since 1978 who hasn’t been touched in any way by his influence.I will miss his acting and I will miss him as a friend. ”
The next Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place no earlier than November 2021. But it is assumed that until then, the organizers will still be able to host live performances by the artists. You can listen to the artists’ speeches and watch excerpts from documentaries on the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame YouTube channel.
Last year, The Hall featured The Cure, Def Leppard, Janet Jackson, Stevie Nicks, Radiohead, Roxy Music and The Zombies. The ceremony took place on March 29, 2019 at the Brooklyn Barclays Center in New York.
90,000 Why the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is not needed in 2019
On Monday night, the next ceremony of admitting new members to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame took place. The official musical pantheon, founded 33 years ago, in 2019 included The Cure, Radiohead and Janet Jackson. Nikolai Ovchinnikov tells how such enterprises are harmful for pop music.
The Cure’s vocalist was asked if he was happy to be at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.He replied grimly, “No.” Janet Jackson refused to speak at the same ceremony, possibly due to the appearance of a film accusing her brother Michael. Three of the five members of Radiohead did not attend the ceremony at all: Tom York is now interested in doing theatrical affairs in Paris, and Johnny Greenwood does not care at all. Roxy Music teamed up to perform at the ceremony, but without Brian Eno. One of the two main musical events in the United States, not related to festivals, but to the distribution of well-deserved prizes – a holiday to which everyone was very invited, but no one really wants to go.
What is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? The museum and pantheon of the gods of popular music invented by the founder of Atlantic Records, Ahmet Etergun, has been replenished annually since 1986, with several additional pantheons (a separate hall of fame for producers, a separate hall of fame for “musical excellence”, a separate one for performers of the pre-roll era, etc.) … The main condition for those on the main list is that 25 years have to pass since the release of the first single. The lists are voted on by industry experts.Usually 5 to 7 musicians are chosen. New members of the roster come at the end of March for the ceremony (this year she was at the Barklayʼs Center in Brooklyn – giving a duty speech of thanks and performing several songs. , which would not have gathered for other reasons. For example, Talking Heads. In general, it seems to be a great show, not like the Grammy, which is always criticized for being one-sided.
Inclusion in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame often becomes the reason for a short-term reunion of the disbanded bands.For example, Talking Heads’ last performance so far took place at the Hall of Fame induction ceremony
Not really. In fact, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is the same Grammy, and in some ways it is even worse.
This is a very conservative and American-centered (the latter is at least understandable) story. Awarded predominantly rock, predominantly American-born – or targeting the American market – mostly alien to progress. The conservatism of the jury is such that in 2007 the management of the hall slightly adjusted the voting results so that the Grandmaster Flash appeared in the pantheon of the main musicians. At the same time, the final selection is an extremely opaque procedure, experts do not pay attention to the requests of crowds of fans, there are almost no women among the members of the Hall of Fame. In this sense, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is no different from the Grammy: both they prefer tradition, even trying to somehow ride the progressive agenda: for every Childish Gambino there is a Greta Van Fleet group.
The Hall of Fame is based on a very strange selection criteria. In an era when one becomes a great musician in six months, releases one and a half albums and perishes, leaving a rather large legacy as a result, the principle “not earlier than in 25 years” still applies.It seems as anachronistic as having to keep the word “rock and roll” in the title when you have Tupac Shakur among your members.
Another important performance: St. Vincent helps Nirvana perform the track “Lithium” at the 2014 ceremony. Then an unpleasant story happened with the first drummer Chad Channing, who was recording the debut album of the group “Bleach”. First, he received an invitation to the ceremony, and then an SMS, which said: he would not be accepted personally into the Hall of Fame.
Well, and the main thing. The very existence of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame not only as an award, but also as a museum is what Simon Reynolds called the “museification” of rock. This is an attempt to fix the history of pop music, to make it static, facing exclusively its own past. An attempt to create a canon where it cannot be. The Hall of Fame members list is an encyclopedia of artists whose best albums were released 10–20 years ago or earlier. It has no footnotes and lacks pages, but its authors try to pretend that everything is fine.The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame turns pop music into a nostalgic attraction.

90,000 Entrance to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum Will Be Free During the Republican Convention – International Panorama
NEW YORK, April 24. / Corr. TASS Alexey Kachalin /. Admission to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland, Ohio will be free during the GOP National Convention. The decision was announced on Saturday by the director of the museum and the hall, Greg Harris.
“The power of music makes it possible to change for the better the attitude of people towards such concepts as patriotism, peace, equality and freedom. When the attention of the whole world is drawn to Cleveland, we will have an ideal chance to appreciate the role of music in politics,” he said, recalling that many famous singers from Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan to Lady Gaga and Kendrick Lamar have used rock and roll to express their political views.
The convention will be held in Cleveland on July 18-21, which will select the Republican single candidate for the US presidential election in November. Entry to the Hall of Fame Museum will be free from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm on July 17-21. As Harris explained, the initiative became possible thanks to a sponsorship contract signed with one of the monopolists of the American cellular market AT&T. The free mode applies to the new exhibition Louder than Words, which opens at the museum on 20 May.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame includes 749 artists and 113 individual performing groups.In early April, the list was joined by the legendary British band Deep Purple, American Chicago, Cheap Trick and N.W.A, as well as blues guitarist Steve Miller. In order to be inducted into the Hall of Fame, an artist or band must be at least 25 years old since their first recording was released. Applicants are selected by a special committee of music historians, and then the proposed candidates are sent to an international group of experts numbering one thousand people.
The first ceremony to include artist names on these lists took place in 1986 after 660,000 people signed a petition in support of a proposal to host the Rock and Roll Museum and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Then, 10 musicians were included in the Hall of Fame at once, including Chuck Berry, James Brown, Ray Charles, Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley.
