Encyclopedia > American Football League Hall of Fame
American Football League Hall of Fame logo

The American Football League Hall of Fame in Amherst, New York exists "only in cyberspace", to quote its founders. The site points out that of two hundred and twenty-five members of the pro football hall of fame, only one (Billy Shaw) was not an NFL player; and that numerous clearly great players from the AFL have been ignored, including Johnny Robinson, Ron McDole, Lionel Taylor and others.


The site's aim is to honor the American Football League players, coaches and contributors .


Inductees into the American Football League Hall of Fame are listed below, by team. When a person played with more than one club, he is listed repeatedly (e.g., George Blanda is listed with the Houston Oilers and the Oakland Raiders).

The American Football League was the only league in North American pro sports ever to have merged with another major league and have all its teams continue to exist.
The American Football League took advantage of the burgeoning popularity of football by locating teams in major cities that lacked NFL franchises, and by using the growing power of televised football games (bolstered with the help of major network contracts, first with ABC and later with NBC).
Further, the league championships were evenly divided: five were won by Western Division teams, five by the Eastern Division; and of the original eight teams, all but two (Denver and Boston) won at least one AFL title, and only one did not make the playoffs at some time during the league's ten-year existence.
