Robert Porter (Buddy) Tinsley, Jr, football player (born 16 August 1924 in Damon, Texas; died 14 September 2011 in Winnipeg, MB). "Buddy" Tinsley played 11 seasons for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (1950–60) as a full-time two-way player, an offensive and defensive tackle. His great agility inspired his coaches to use him occasionally as a ball carrier. Tinsley led by example and was named captain of the team from 1951 to 1960. His play earned him eight Western All-Star selections, five on offence and three on defence and All-Canadian honours four times. Tinsley's team went to five Grey Cup games, winning in 1958 and 1959. He was elected to the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 1982.
