McLain was the Oilers beat reporter for years and years and has one of the few votes as a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction committee and is probably the reason that Houston Oiler great Elvin Bethea
made it into the Hall of Fame. If he is a fraud he has fooled the entire NFL.
I've received so many e-mails about former Oilers' defensive end Elvin Bethea being voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. I'm including a few of them in this column. As one of 39 on the selection committee, it was an honor to present Elvin to the voters at our annual meeting the day before the Super Bowl.
