Paul Hornung-Alex Karras betting scandal - Green Bay Packers halfback Paul Hornung and Detroit Lions defensive tackle Alex Karras were suspended for betting on NFL games. NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle suspended the two pro-bowlers indefinitely for betting on league games and associating with gamblers or "known hoodlums." While Hornung says his bets were made with friends, for $100 or $200, Rozelle says the player bet as much as $500 on NFL games from 1959-61. Hornung is contrite after learning of the suspension. "I made a terrible mistake," he says. "I am truly sorry." Rozelle says Karras made at least six bets of $50 or $100. Rozelle also fined five other Detroit Lions - Joe Schmidt, Wayne Walker, John Gordy, Gary Lowe and Sam Williams - $2,000 each for betting $50 on the Packers in the 1962 championship game against the Giants. Since the Packers covered the six-point spread in beating the Giants 16-7, the players are $1,950 losers. Hornung and Karras were reinstated after a year. Hornung was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1986.
