PHOENIX - Junior Seau, Jerome Bettis, Tim Brown, Charles Haley and Will Shields were elected Saturday to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The class of 2015, announced a day before the Super Bowl, also includes a pair of contributors, Bill Polian and Ron Wolf, along with senior selection Mick Tingelhoff. Five nominees were eliminated in the final vote: Tony Dungy, Kevin Greene, Marvin Harrison, Orlando Pace and Kurt Warner. Earlier Saturday, the selection committee reduced the list of 15 modern-day finalists by cutting Morten Andersen, Terrell Davis, John Lynch and coaches Don Coryell and Jimmy Johnson. A candidate needs 80 per cent of the vote from 46 media members to get in. The induction ceremony is in August at Canton, Ohio. Seau, elected posthumously, was the only first-time eligible candidate to get in this year. He committed suicide at age 43 in 2012, and researchers who studied his brain said it showed signs of chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a disease connected to repeated head injuries, including concussions. His death, less than 2 1/2 years after the end of his playing career, resonated among players in the league, raising worry about the physical and emotional toll the sport takes. Two sons of Seaus represented him on stage with the other seven men elected Saturday when the class was announced during the NFL Honors show. A field-covering, hard-hitting linebacker, the charismatic Seau played in the NFL for 20 seasons, the first 13 with the San Diego Chargers, followed by three with Miami and four with New England. He was Defensive Player of the Year for San Diego in 1992, made six All-Pro teams, and was a member of the leagues All-Decade team of the 1990s. Patriots coach Bill Belichick said this week he loved having Seau on his roster. I cant imagine having a Professional Football Hall of Fame without Junior Seau in it, said Belichick, whose team plays the Seattle Seahawks in Sundays Super Bowl. Id say the one word that comes to me when I think about Junior and football is passion. He was a very passionate guy. A lot of energy. Lot of enthusiasm. First guy in the building in the morning — watching film, lifting weights, ready for practice, Belichick said. Energy before the game, on the sideline, during the game. An emotional player, but a smart player. Bettis, a finalist for the fifth time, was a burly running back nicknamed The Bus who began a 13-season career by earning Rookie of the Year honours for the Rams. He capped it by winning the 2006 Super Bowl with the Steelers in a game played in his hometown of Detroit. His 13,662 yards rushing rank fifth in history and he had eight seasons of at least 1,000. When Brown retired after the 2004 season, he ranked No. 2 in NFL history with 14,934 yards receiving, No. 3 with 1,094 catches, and No. 3 with 100 touchdown catches. He was the 1987 Heisman Trophy winner at Notre Dame. As a rookie with the Raiders, Brown led the league in kickoff returns, return yards, and average yards per return, and was an All-Pro pick as a kick returner. He earned another All-Pro selection in 1997 at wide receiver. Haley, elected in his 11th year of eligibility, was a defensive end and linebacker for 12 seasons with the 49ers and Cowboys. After entering the league as a fourth-round draft pick in 1986, he wound up as the first player in NFL history to play on five Super Bowl-winning teams. He finished his career with 100 1-2 sacks and twice was an All-Pro, once at linebacker and once at defensive end. Shields was a guard for Kansas City from 1993-2006, never missing a game in his 14 seasons. He was a first-team All-Pro three times, a second-team All-Pro four times, and was a member of the NFLs All-Decade Team of the 2000s. Polian and Wolf were general managers who built Super Bowl champions. Polians Bills and Colts teams reached a total of five Super Bowls, with Indianapolis winning the title in 2007. Wolfs Packers won the 1997 Super Bowl, then lost in the NFL championship game a year later. Veterans committee nominee Tingelhoff retired in 1978 after starting all 240 games of his career as the centre for the Minnesota Vikings. Adidas NMD μαυρα .

Adidas NMD Greece . -- Kevin Harvick pulled away on a restart with 47 laps to go and ended Chase Elliotts two-race winning streak in NASCARs Nationwide Series with a dominating victory early Saturday at Richmond International Raceway.MOORESVILLE, N.C. - Canadas Alex Tagliani will drive for Team Penske in two NASCAR Nationwide Series road course races this season. Tagliani will compete for the team on June 21 at Road America and Aug. 16 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Hell be behind the wheel of the No. 22 Discount Tire Ford that AJ Allmendinger used to win both races last season. "This is a great opportunity to get back in a NASCAR Nationwide Series car and to do it for one of the best teams in the series and one of the greatest owners the sport has ever seen -- Roger Penske," Tagliani said in a release. "Ive been able to run for The Captain one other time in my career in a stock car and we were so close to winning the race. This gives me two great chances to get my first Nationwide Series win. "And with the team winning both of these races lastt year, I guess you could say the pressure is on me to get the job done this season.dddddddddddd" Tagliani, from Lachenaie, Que. has competed on several circuits in recent years. He is a former Indianapolis 500 pole winner, capturing the prestigious pole position in 2011. "I have known Alex for a long time and he has driven for our team before, so he was the ideal choice to race the Discount Tire Ford for these upcoming road course events," Penske said. "Alex is a proven winner in both open-wheel and stock car competition. He has competed for wins each of the last two times he has raced in the Nationwide Series, including with Team Penske back in 2011. I think he, (crew chief) Jeremy Bullins and the No. 22 Discount Tire Ford team will be tough to beat at both Road America and Mid-Ohio this season." ' ' '
