Paul Hornung and Alex Karras were indefinitely suspended for gambling way back in the day. Both were later reinstated.

Because of that the Packers never officially retired #5 (although no Packer has since worn that number).

Betting on NFL games (not against their own teams) and associating with "undesirable characters."

Their suspensions were hand out in 1963. The Cowgirls were 4-10 that year. More like pitiful characters.
