One of the greatest injustices for decades....has been Alex Karras not going into the NFL Hall of Fame.....His play was certainly up to that level....Must be the politics....Karras and Paul Hornung were both suspended a season for gambling....Yet Hornung, a Packer and one of Lombardi's players has been in the Hall for years.....Why not Alex Karras? Because he played for the Lions? Because he had a sense of humor and acting and comedic talent?
