A Short History of the NFL (National Football League)
The National Football League (NFL) is the largest football league in the world. The NFL was formally organized in Canton, Ohio in 1920, as the American Professional Football Association (AFPA). In 1921 they changed names to the American Professional Football League before settling on The National Football League in 1922. The NFL currently consists of 32 teams, in major cities of the United States and is divided into two conferences - the American Football Conference (AFC) and National Football Conference (NFC) - of four four-team divisions (see the full list below).
A typical football season consists of a seventeen-week schedule during which each team has one bye week and plays sixteen games. The schedule includes six games against the team's divisional rivals along with several inter-division and inter-conference games. The season starts on the first Thursday after Labor Day, in September, and runs weekly until late December or early January.
At the end of every season, six teams from each conference play in the NFL playoffs, a twelve team single-elimination tournament that peaks with the championship game, known as the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl is usually held in a city that is home to one of the NFL teams. The week following the Super Bowl, selected all-star players from the AFC and NFC meet at the Pro Bowl, which is held in Honolulu, Hawaii.
The NFL holds the highest per-game attendance record of any professional domestic sports league, attracting over 65,000 fans per game for its two recently completed seasons - 2006 and 2007.
The AFL - In 1960, after entry refusal by the NFL owner, Lamar Hunt and seven other men established the rival American Football League (AFL). While other rival leagues had come and gone, the AFL was able to capitalize on the sports ever growing popularity.
The AFL / NFL Merger - The rivalry between the two leagues was damaging the sport in the mid-1960s. The bidding war for college drafts was out of control. In an agreement brokered by AFL founder Lamar Hunt and Dallas Cowboys General Manager Tex Schramm, on June 8, 1966 the two leagues announced a merger. The leagues would now hold a combined draft and an end-of-season title game (later coined the Super Bowl) would be played between two league champions. In 1970, the leagues would become fully merged under the National Football League and divided into two conferences of equal parts (the AFC and NFC).
In the 1970s and 1980s, the NFL's dominance as America's favorite top spectator sport was solidified as was its important role in American culture. The Super Bowl has become an "unofficial" holiday and is one of the top rated television programs most years.
