Last year Tales ran a Hall of Fame campaign for Chiefs safety, Johnny Robinson. We posted, Facebooked, Tweeted, and Instagrammed about Johnny. We collected signatures for a petition, gathered testimonials and petitioned Hall of Fame voters. We generally told anyone who would listen about the travesty of his not being in the Hall of Fame.
One way or another, Johnny became the senior representative of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2019. He was inducted in August, along with Pat Bowlen, Gil Brandt, Champ Bailey, Tony Gonzalez, Ty Law, Kevin Mawae and Ed Reed. Johnny brought my wife and I back to Canton for the festivities in appreciation of our efforts. It was an incredible gesture by a wonderful man, and we will never forget his generosity.
I have now designed a page on the site that is dedicated to “The Johnny Robinson Hall of Fame Experience.” AFL fans can now find all of the information that we gathered on Johnny Robinson in one place. All of the testimonials, a great amount of media, a link to Johnny’s Hall of Fame acceptance speech and several photos from the weekend are included. Simply click on the JOHNNY ROBINSON button in the menu of each Tales page and join in the celebration.
