If awards and statistics are not enough to convince you of Johnny Robinson’s hall of fame worthiness, consider the following comments from his head coach, teammates and opponents.

Simply put, Johnny Robinson is one of the greatest safeties that I ever faced. In fact, I can’t think of any that I’ve seen in the 50 years since that have been better. When we ran cross patterns against Kansas City, I knew that I was going to get hit hard. I had to prepare myself specifically for him, both mentally and physically. Johnny Robinson absolutely deserves to be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. – Lance Alworth, Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 1978 & Member of the AFL All-Time Team

Johnny Robinson was a fantastic safety, and really controlled the great Chiefs defense of the 1960s. In fact, the Kansas City Chiefs would not have been the Kansas City Chiefs without him. I have absolutely no reservations about saying that Johnny Robinson deserves induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. – Clem Daniels, AFL Career Rushing Leader & Member of the AFL All-Time Team

I would play with Johnny Robinson any day, and put him up against anybody. I put him at the top as a safety. Playing with Johnny was like having a coach on the field. It was great to play with a guy who was such a student of the game. Johnny Robinson should have been put in the hall of fame a long time ago. – Bobby Bell, Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 1983 & Member of the AFL All-Time Team

Johnny brought class and leadership to the free safety position. He was calm and disciplined and always prepared, rarely out of position. Without fanfare he defined the position. – Tom Flores, 10-Year AFL Player & Two-Time Super Bowl-Winning Head Coach

Johnny Robinson is one of the best to ever play the game, and is long overdue for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He was a great and honorable player, and I never had to worry about taking a cheap shot from him. It was my honor to play against Johnny Robinson, and I would surely cast my vote for him. – Don Maynard, Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 1987 & Member of the AFL All-Time Team

Johnny Robinson was as complete a safety as ever played.  He was as valuable as Len Dawson, Willie Lanier, and Bobby Bell, all of whom are in the Hall of Fame. – Hank Stram, Texans/Chiefs Head Coach 1960-1974 & Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2003

Please sign the petition below, and share with friends, family and football fans.  Help to ensure that Johnny Robinson gets the recognition that he so well deserves!  The results of this petition will be presented to members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Senior Committee prior to their 2018 voting session.
