CANTON - Pro football at Fawcett Stadium is moving back to Sunday night, and the effects are being felt throughout the week leading up to the Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony. The National Football League on Thursday announced that the AFC-NFC Hall of Fame Game will be played Aug. 6 on NBC. The annual preseason kickoff had been a part of ABC’s "Monday Night Football" package for the last three years. As a result, the Ribs Burnoff is set for Wednesday through Friday of that week, while the Timken Grand Parade and the enshrinement ceremony return to a back-to-back Saturday lineup last seen in 2002. Joe Horrigan, Hall of Fame vice president for communications, said the hall had plans in place for both contingencies. "Having the game on Sunday just moves everything up a day," Horrigan said. "It looks a little more like it used to when we had everything back-to-back-to-back in a tight package." The Timken Grand Parade kicks off in downtown Canton at 7:30 a.m., while the Class of 2006 — Troy Aikman, John Madden, Warren Moon, Harry Carson, Rayfield Wright and the late Reggie White — will be inducted at 1 p.m. at Fawcett Stadium. Other changes include moving the Enshrinees Dinner to Friday evening, the downtown concert and fireworks to Saturday evening and the Enshrinees GameDay Roundtable to Sunday afternoon. "We have known for several months that there was a potential for the game date to change, so festival and hall leadership brainstormed various options so that we would be ready," festival director Joanne Murray said in a press release. The teams and kickoff time for the Hall of Fame game has not been announced. An announcement on both are expected in March. Horrigan said the Dallas Cowboys seem a "logical" choice with the induction of Aikman and Wright in this year’s class. The Cowboys last played in Canton in 1999, serving as the opponent in the return of the Cleveland Browns.
