Joe Blackburn served the United States as a member of the Marine Corps. He was also a lifelong fan of the Cleveland Browns. Ever the optimist, Joe cheered for the Browns through the good times and the bad times, patiently waiting for his favorite team to return to prominence. Fortunately for us, Joe started visiting Football’s Future, adopting the username of crakburn. Crakburn’s intelligent posting style, combined with his courtesy for others and likeable personality, quickly earned him respect and admiration among his peer Browns fans. Before long, crakburn was asked to help moderate the Cleveland Browns forum. He was not only knowledgeable, but he also had a way of making people feel at home.

One day, Joe received the terrible news that he had pancreatic cancer. Those who have had the unfortunate experience of knowing someone with pancreatic cancer know that it is an aggressive bastard of a disease. As a result, Joe was eventually placed into hospice, where it became evident that he was most likely fighting a losing battle. The members of Football’s Future (including non-Browns fans) were stirred and inspired by Joe’s story. Knowing that crakburn’s favorite Browns’ player was Joe Thomas, contacts were made to explore the possibility of Joe Thomas visiting crakburn at his home. Graciously and anonymously, Joe Thomas (and his wife) paid a meaningful visit to crakburn and his family one evening at his home. Not long after this visit, Joe Blackburn passed away.

This thread is here to recognize the posters who contribute the most to our forum in terms of knowledge, sense of humor, and fostering community. It only makes sense to name it after our own Joe Blackburn (crakburn).

Since this class is so weak (and the vote rigged) I say we just do a Super HOF vote amongst those already in.

Crackburn obviously gets a nominee, Ditch for being the Mod Jesus (more like Adam but Jesus is funnier) and MBTL with ITWT ghosting him, since, well...
