Sadly Lacking[edit]

This article badly needs info about Hayes post-football career. He moved back to Coppell, worked for The Staubach Breuning Company (as it was known in the mid-1980s) and was a popular public speaker at area schools.

Bob Hayes was inducted to the Pro-Football Hall of Fame on January 31, 2009 —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.79.5.188 (talk) 20:06, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Hayes Letter[edit]

The following passage was moved to this page pending proper citation of its various claims:

Lucille Hester's claim to be Hayes' sister has been challenged by sources close to Hayes' surviving family members. The letter above is dubious. Roger Staubach did not become the starting quarterback for the Cowboys until midway through the 1971 season, in the later years of Hayes' career. Hayes' most successful seasons came while Don Meredith played quarterback for the Cowboys.

As one can see in the above section on this Talk page posted by someone knowledgable of Hayes' post-NFL life in the 1980s, Hayes worked for a company owned by former Cowboys Staubach and Bob Bruening, in addition, evidently, to being a popular public speaker in the Dallas, Texas, area. Thanking Staubach in a letter (if in fact it is valid, and the above is the only challenge of it I've seen since it was released) clearly would not be merely a function of who had more time at QB when Hayes was an active player in the NFL.

Let the appropriate cites come, if they are going to. Please do not turn this into a He said/She said until they do, or not. Thank you.Wikiuser100 (talk) 19:52, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
