Hall of Fame Bias?

Are former Cowboys unfairly getting passed over for the Hall of Fame? Former Cowboys safety Cliff Harris, who was passed over for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame for the 20th straight year, certainly believes so.

And he is finally letting his frustration show.

"I will have to say I was much more disappointed than I expected," Harris said.

"What was really disappointing was that none of the three Cowboys -- myself, (offensive tackle), Rayfield Wright and (wide receiver) Bob Hayes -- made it to the Hall of Fame."

Once the world's fastest human, Hayes died in 2002 at age 59.

Harris' expectations for making the Hall of Fame were raised this year when he made it to the final 15 and by conducting several interviews with Metroplex media in anticipation of his selection.

Harris, who made the Pro Bowl six times and was a four-time All-Pro, said there may be a bias among selection voters against the Cowboys teams of the 1970s because they lost Super Bowls X and XIII to the four-time champion Pittsburgh Steelers, even though both games were close and even though those Dallas teams did win two titles.
