CRITERIA FOR SELECTING SAINTS HALL OF FAMERS

flower
  1. 1 Nominations are accepted from two sources—the media selection committee and the advisory committee, consisting of previously inducted Saints Hall of Famers.
  2. 2 Those eligible for nomination include any player, coach, or front-office person of distinction who is retired from the National Football League and has not been with the New Orleans Saints organization for at least three (3) years.
  3. 3 The advisory committee will submit one (1) recommendation to the media selection committee.
  4. 4 The media selection committee is urged to strongly consider the recommendation of the advisory committee, but there is no obligation to elect the recommended individual.
  1. 5 The media selection committee will elect one but no more than two persons to the Saints Hall of Fame on an annual basis. It is strongly recommended to induct someone annually. Inducting more than one annually should only occur in the case of very strong cases made for induction.
  2. 6 Accomplishments on the field are the primary criteria used to nominate and select members of the Saints Hall of Fame. That is first and foremost. Character off the field is a secondary consideration, which is applicable, particularly when the person being considered was with the New Orleans Saints.
  3. 7 The media selection committee will nominate and select a Joe Gemelli “Fleur De Lis” award recipient. This honor is presented to a person who has contributed to the betterment of the New Orleans Saints and supported the franchise. This award is not intended for Saints players, coaches, or primary front-office personnel.
  4. 8 You may nominate candidates prior to and up to the meeting to select Hall of Famers.
