Class of 2011 SWDC/NFLDC Hall of Fame
There hasn't been a new class since 2009, when P-L was inducting some of the most influential, best, and most memorable posters that have graced the forums. Since P-L left there hasn't been anyone entered into the Hall of Fame... until now.

After reaching out to several of the most knowledgeable and respected members of the forum, along with getting the pulse from the members of the forum, there was created a list of 18 deserving posters on the forums.

Out of those 18 there were only 7 that those I reached out to agreed upon that should be honored. Those 7 that have been chosen received the most votes out of everyone who I asked to participate on the balloting process.

Now, without further adieu, here is the first person to enter into the NFLDC Hall of Fame class of 2011.

He's been a huge contributor to various MLB threads as an often tortured Braves fan, part of the "my god, please stop talking about the Magic" coalition in the NBA thread, and is always giving entertaining contributions to various Movie and TV threads. Of course, that is just the Off Topic section. He is a huge contributor to the Cowboys Team Forum, and consistently provides some of the better Cowboy knowledge to the rest of the forum. Finally, there is his South Carolina fandom and his endless griping about all South Carolina related activities. From his Sam Hurd love, to his poor imitation at Blue Steel, MOTH has provided the forum with plenty of great moments and belongs in the Hall of Fame of this forum.

This thread will remain closed until all 7 are announced.

He's the pinnacle Draftnik. On a website dedicated to mock drafts and other fantasy scenarios, it's difficult to stand out. Yet, STRIP accomplished that. STRIP ran the first ever Forum Mock that I participated in, and got me hooked ever since. And when the guy did something, he did it right. His 7 Round Mock Drafts were draftnikian pornography, and it's a shock that they don't trip the censors. Oh, and did I mention he's a NBA Draft whiz too? Yeah, if you go to the NBA Draft thread, odds are STRIP is dominating the conversation. Someone's running a NBA Forum Mock? Odds are it's STRIP running the show. Like I said, total draftnik. And all this without going into the caliber of commenter he was in regard to a vast sports landscape, especially his Redskins and Wizards. You want to know what STRIP has to say, and when he does post, you stop what you're doing and read. You newbies may think this is an exaggeration, but I assure you it isn't. When you combine knowledge and passion like you have in STRIP, you truly get something special. So at the end of everything, you see Ghetto isn't meant for the Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame is meant for posters like Ghetto.

The third poster to be inducted into the 2011 NFLDC Hall of Fame is:

When two foes have had met on the field of battle, even through the most bitter hatred and rivalry, they tend to develop a strong respect for their adversary.

Let it be known that Brodeur and myself get along about as well as oil and water. Two rivals who are in a constant struggle over football intelligence superiority. And he has been nothing short of a Hall of Fame caliber adversary.

To have been a Detroit Lions fan over this past decade without having lost love and passion for the sport of football must have taken a Herculean effort for “Brody.” His football opinions have always been respected by the forum at large and throughout these past several years, his activity has remained high.

His fandom extends beyond the boundaries of the gridiron into other sports and his contributions have helped to keep the Off-Topic section buzzing as an active poster in the Movie, TV and Random Discussion threads. And yes, he even Professional Wrestling.

At the time of this writing, he is closing in on an amazing 30,000 posts and, to quote his current signature, has rep equivalent to being “hung like a ****ing horse whose dick is abnormally ****ing large even by horse dick standards.”

Though I still contend that Jeff Backus sucks and that Robbie Gould is better than Jason Hanson, I know that Brodeur would be there to argue my points in Hall of Fame caliber fashion.

For these reasons, if it were asked of me “who should be in the SWDC Hall of Fame?” I would respond “In this age, in past ages, in any age, Brodeur.” Congratulations Brodeur.

The fourth poster to be inducted in NFLDC Hall of Fame class of 2011 is

From being knowledgeable about football, baseball, and basketball, to his activity in nearly every fantasy related thread thats made, to being a pillar of the Draft Countdown IRC channels, to his being my main movie & tv watching buddy and pillow hat pal, fenikz is known for a lot of things.

However, the thing that he's celebrated for above all else is his graphics and sig making. Look around the board as I type this, and half of the users are sporting a signature created by fenikz. He is, in my opinion, far and away the greatest sig maker of the last several years, and the fact that he constantly has people bugging him to make new ones is proof of that.

A good poster, and a heck of an e-friend, fenikz deserves his spot here amongst the best that this board has had to offer. May he forever remain one of the few people that I actually like.

On August 6, 2004, Giantsfan1080, or Zak, joined draftcountdown forums, which at the time was nfldraftcountdown. over 7 years, and almost 18,000 posts later, he is deservedly getting inducted into the Hall of Fame. GF1080 is hands down one of the smartest and most passionate fans on this board and loves his teams. I could not imagine the Giants board without him, and this man knows his baseball and loves his Mets. And, of course, he knows and loves his Rutgers.
As an alum, he's been following this fantastic school and was around during some horrendous dark days of losing records, but stuck through and is one hell of a fan. As the 2 biggest Rutgers fans here, Zak and I balance each other out. Where as I bring out the slightly creepy homoerotic Rutgers passion, Zak is the brains and reason. Nobody knows Rutgers football like him, and he is my main source of Rutgers info. He is my absolute go to guy for recruiting info. GF1080 brings so much to these boards and is a well rounded poster who shows off his knowledge of NFL, MLB, recruiting and of course all the escapades in the RDT and IRC. He is without a doubt one of the most liked posters here, due to him not being an ass, and his all around knowledge. In a totally homosexual way, I view Zak as an internet big brother, and he and I have had countless conversations about Rutgers and the Giants. Actually, if you read the Rutgers thread, it’s literally me and him having conversations, with a little bit of Hurricanes25 in there. I am honored that I was chosen to give him his induction speech. Here’s to one of the absolute best posters on this board, and here’s to at least 7 more years!

The last but certainly not least member of the class of 2011 in the NFLDC Hall of Fame:

Known affectionately as “commie” to many, he is the Movie and TV expert who contributes more in the Off-Topic forum than anywhere else on the board. His expertise seems to know no bounds extending to professional wrestling, video games, and more. He falls in a category as rare as a legendary bird in Pokemon being one of the rare Texans fans who lurks in the tall grass and is ready to pounce at the mention of his favorite team. Add on his University of Texas homerism, and he is one of the best of Texas team fans.
When the forum attempted to extend its social read by implements Internet Relay Chat, comahan entered as a young pup who offered to help organize and add features to IRC, he instantly was placed in a position of power outside the forums and became one of the go to users off the forums to chat with and get to know. After years and years of spending time on IRC with him and others, I feel comahan is an even better friend than many of the people I know off the forum and see on a regular basis. He is willing to go an extra mile for those he likes and shares his creativity and excitement for what he has a passion in. There is little doubt he is a Hall of Famer.

Windy is the most deserving, by far. The rest of them are great fellas and all, but Windy was just brilliant.
