The Jack Butler Hall of Fame Campaign

Jack Butler was named one of the 33 greatest Steelers of All Time, he was a four-time Pro Bowler, and was a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers' 50th and 75th Anniversary Teams, as well as the 1950s NFL Team of the Decade. After his playing days, he was the director of BLESTO for 44 years, innovating football scouting by introducing psychological testing, computerized scouting, and laptop computers to NFL scouts while reviewing over 30,000 players. So why isn't he in the Hall of Fame? That's what his family is trying to change, and they need your help.

Butler's son John is leading the rally to increase awareness in his father's cause as a contributor to the game, and personally, I think it's a no-brainer. Apparently, the Hall's voters have disagreed to this point, but here's the plan: Butler's family will present their father's case to HOF voters and include information on visits to their website and signatures to their virtual guest book.

So if you're down with the cause, jump on board. There's always room in the Hall for another member of the Steeler Family. Please show your support on behalf of Jack Butler, and maybe our numbers can help make a difference.
