    Nobodyinparticular, the forums most beloved Raider fan, and one of NFLDC's most respected users. "NIP" joined in February of 2005 and has been one of the forums most active users, one of the few who has passed the 10,000 post milestone. NIP always taught the forum's members about the Raider ways and their philosophies and shared his opinion with other Raider fans in the forum. Not only did he know of the Raiders, but he had profound knowledge of the NFL aswell. While he had a great football mind, his intelligence, humor and ability to describe his stories must not be overlooked. He participated in very many conversations and discussions not related to the NFL, and often brought humor to NFLDC's users. NIP will be deeply missed but never forgotten.

      Scott runs the site but Ward basically runs the NFLDC forums! A long-time poster, mod and admin, nobody has done more to improve on and advance the forums than Ward. Bringing everything from serious football discussion, discipline and levity to the table, Ward is one of the most well-rounded posters out there and his induction was long overdue. Ward is the pulse of these forums and as he goes so do the boards.

      Ward. Where to start. Ward is single handedly responsible for developing the culture of NFLDC. His influence on this forum may not be easily recognizable to all, but his ideas, suggestions and foresight cannot be overlooked. He's a guy that will put his words into action. He operates with the benefit and goodness of NFLDC in mind despite friction from others because he knows what's ultimately best for the forum. He's a stern character that demands respect. He can dish out a one liner that has more impact than what others say in several paragraphs.
      He's been the driving force behind the forum organization. He came up with the Moderator Tiers. It was his idea to add more moderators to the forum when there were only 3 at the time. It has only continued to grow since and it has been proven to be an effective forum management system. Much credit deserves to go his way.
      He's been the regulator of the new forum and Scott is lucky to have Ward in charge of such a task. As smooth as the transition was, we have to thank Ward for directing the action behind the scenes.
      Who will ever forget his falsified death on April Fools? April first will never be the same at NFLDC ever again. HA HA! Those who believed, will never forgive themselves or Ward for pulling such a prank. The fact that so many people cared, shows how much he is respected.
      This induction is way overdue. Ward is one of the founding fathers of this forum and does more for the health and well being than perhaps Scott himself. All hail! The Warden.

      Concerning newkwhy: Braggadocious. How could a fan of the Dallas Cowboys, FSU football, and a boxing nut not be? I think the people who understand what newkwhy was about were the people that could appreciate him the most. He was one of the most prolific posters of all time (still at the top of the list despite not having been active in months), and is without a doubt on the Mt. Rushmore of Cowboys posters here at NFLDC. newk will be remembered as a braggart, and the perfect example of this is him following through on his outrageous claims and leaving the boards in the manner that he did. Newk was a cynical fan, but a loyal one. He wanted the best for his teams, and wasn't afraid to point out when he saw them going in the wrong direction. He belongs in the Hall of Fame not because he was the most liked guy, but because he without a doubt altered the attitude and atmosphere of the forum in a way that users today still benefit from. This is undeniable.

        Concerning 4U2NV, he was the first guy here at the forum who I ever talked to outside of the forum. He was a very cool guy, despite being Canadian. He was one of the top posters for the first few months along with myself, and was originally chosen by Scott to be the first moderator ever. He was vital to the development of the rules that we still use to this day, and kept order in the forum in it's infancy. It was also his idea to use one thread for an entire team discussion, which led to the first ever dedicated team thread in forum history. Most people know it today simply as the Dallas Cowboys thread.

        While bearfan51 isn't known for his politically correct statements, or his sympathy for other peoples feelings, he's one of the best and most appreciated posters on this site. He brings great analysis and fun to the board, and he's well respected by not only Bear fans, but a lot of other posters on the NFLDC Forum. He's a die hard Bear fan who lives and breathes his beloved Bears. I'm proud to be speaking on befalf of my fellow Bear brother. We've both been on here a long time and even though we don't see eye to eye on a lot of things, we stick together through thick and thin. Why? Because we're die hard Bear fans. We bleed Navy and Orange and we breath the Chicago Bears. While he won't win any popularity points; without him on this board, us Bear fans would feel a great sense of loss and this board would lose one of its greatest posters. So bearfan, congrats brother. You deserve it and the Bear fans on this board our proud to have one of their own as a 1st ballot HOF'er.

        All people need to know about Charger Fanatic is that at a forum with a rich history of sig and graphics artists, he was the first. The first. He was a damn good one too. He is without a doubt, the gfx godfather of NFLDC.
        Creek

        Creek has been without a doubt the funniest poster on NFLDC since he began strolling these forums. His one-liners have become famous on NFLDC and without Creek we would have alot less humor around here. Not only is he flat out hilarious, but also knows his football(and basketball) better than almost anyone here. He is an extremely talented writer who knows how to tell a story.

        D-Unit...What else to say except this guy is the reason this board is so diverse. I still remember the young D-Unit....I wish the post still existed...but it's been long removed...back in the day D didn't quite understand that thread pages went by # of posts not # of characters...so D typed up about a million word breakdown of the cowboys...random thoughts he had...and about anything that could relate to the topic.

        Oh how he has grown. D really came into his own why his arch-nemesis Newkwhy and him battled. D was in love with Parcells and Kwhy was note...to make an extremely long and epic story short....D won the battle in the end when Parcells made the Cowboys a better team and Kwhy went off into the abyss never really to be heard from again. It was a sad departure and a real loss to the cowboys board...and although the debates got heated it never got personal between the two...which just goes to show how professional a guy like D is.

        D has evolved this board is so many ways I can't remember them all...I like to compare D to that outgoing birthday mom that loves to keep everything interesting. D started up the first ever NFLDC graphics team...and was one of the best graphics guys on this board back in his day....so of his work today still rivals todays best works...and he did that stuff over 2 years ago. He's created scavenger hunts....forum mocks...and just about everything you could imagine.

        If you ever doubt the respect that D has just take a look around his posts...he almost always has a couple minions around with him almost acting as an echo with him...agree'ing with everything he has to say...I've never seen another poster with this problem and this only goes to show the impact D has on some of the users around here.

        D is probably now best known for his fantasy participation as it seems just about every draft or game has his named tied into it somehow.

        D will always go down as one of my favorites here on the board. And I truly believe that this board wouldn't be what it is today without him here...So Congrats D, and aloha.

        ERU was one of the most interesting characters in NFLDC history, at times he was hilarious, very informative, and just a pretty good guy. He had by far the greatest backstory of his username, all in all he was a legend to those who knew him and a myth to others. He was also one of the founders of one of the funniest threads to grace this board. To quote Ward what he brings to the table can't be put on paper.

        toonster is widely considered the most knowledgeable poster on NFLDC. Not only does he display a great knowledge of the NFL and the draft, but his knowledge of all sports is top notch. Toonster is one of the most respected poster to ever post on NFLDC and there really hasn’t been anyone who didn’t like toonster. He has been called the human sports encuclopedia, and for good reason. A true legend.

        Xio has been a long time member here and he was one of my first buddies on this site. As a fellow Lions and Wolverines fan the two of us have shared the ups and downs (but mostly downs) of our teams over the past few years. He was the third moderator ever appointed by Scott Wright and he was also made Admin for a short time. Even though he no longer holds a position in management, he is still a quality poster and contributor. I am proud to be inducted into the Hall of Fame with this man.

          JBond has been arguably one of the most influential posters in the history of Draft Countdown. His rise through the ranks from member to Administrator was a quick, but well deserved. JBond has been very active in the forum and its activities all while working on a teaching career and writing for a fantasy football website.
          Lions WMD

          WMD has long been the funniest poster on the forum, especially since Creek stopped posting. He's always livening up the forums with his jokes. As a fellow Lions fan and forum mock partner the two of us have shared many good and bad moments together. He helped out as a mod for a few months and he still remains an asset to the forums.

          njx has been one of the most controversial and well respected posters on the forum for as long as I can remember. No matter how you feel about him, you have to admit that he's made an impact on these forums. He was always in the middle of the most heated arguments on the forum and everyone has surely felt his impact.

            Throughout my time at SWDC, I've had the pleasure of reading a lot of great posts from a lot of people who know what they're talking about when it comes to football. And one of the most knowledgeable posters to ever come through these forums goes by the name of Shiver. I am telling the absolute truth when I say that the best part of Tuesdays during football season, for me at least, was logging on when I went home for lunch to read his weekly thoughts. Always interesting and thought provoking, to me, posts by Shiver were surpassed only by the great Toonsterwu and Scott Wright himself.

            Unfortunately, as the years have gone by, he no longer has the time to post his weekly opinions on the NFL. Those days are truly missed, and you new posters who were not around for those seasons in which he posted them truly missed out. His contributions to SWDC resulted in his promotion to moderator, and now his immortalization in the SWDC Hall of Fame, which is where he belongs. Shiver, I am very thankful to have been here when you shared your opinions and honoured to call you a friend on here. Congratulations, buddy, you deserve it.
