Talk of Fame Network – Otis Taylor for Hall of Fame?

Ron Borges, Rick Gosselin and Clark Judge get it.  They are all longtime football writers, and all three have hall of fame votes.  Fortunately for us, they appreciate the history of the AFL as well.  Recently on their site, the Talk of Fame Network, Rick Gosselin posted an article titled State Your Case: Why WR Otis Taylor Deserves a Look from Canton.

Maybe now that the Packerss Jerry Kramer has finally received the induction he has so long been denied, the senior committee will be able to take a look at the long list of AFL’ers who are also so worthy of induction; Johnny Robinson, Otis Taylor, Walt Sweeney, Art Powell, and on and on and on…

    I don’t know if this is truly a case of old NFL discrimination, but stuff like this is why I root for the AFL in the Super Bowl (although as a Chiefs fan, I struggle if it means rooting for the Broncos or Raiders).
