    The Meeting that Started the NFL: September 17, 1920

    The Meeting that Started the NFL: September 17, 1920

    Pro Football and in particular the NFL today is a Billion dollar business, but it was not always that way. Baseball and College football were much more popular than the pro version of the gridiron. This was so much the case that only a small percentage of the early pro teams survived beyond the Great Depression. Join us as we examine the climate of sports and the meeting that set the organized pro game in motion.

    What are the different lines on a football field and what do they do?

    What are the different lines on a football field and what do they do?

    We look at them every time we watch a game, and they are important yet somewhat in the background of our focus. The football field markings are everywhere on the playing surface but what are they used for and where did they come from? We hope to give you these answers today to fill that football brain with knowledge.
