    ?The Beginning of the N.F.L? The year was 1920 and pro-football was in a state of confusion. The three main problems that led to all the confusion were, salaries rising, players jumping from team to team and the use of players still enrolled in college. So, on August 20, 1920, a group of men representing the four current pro teams met. When the day was done the American Professional Football Conference was born. The A.P.F.C. was formed to make one governing body over pro football. Then, on September 17, 1920, a second organizational meeting was held. At t

    How To Throw A Pass

    How To Throw A Pass When most people think of quarterbacks, they think arms, but without the legs and feet, a quarterback won't be getting many opportunities to show off his arm. Besides, there's a lot more to legs and feet than just scrambling. Dan Marino isn't known for his speed or running ability, but he has very quick feet, which helps him get set up in the pocket that much faster and gives him that much longer to read the defense. I will explain how to throw and hopefully help you complete a pass. Everything begins with the snap. The center is a position that many peopl

    Football hooliganism is a global phenomenon that developed in England during the late 19th centuries, which has lead to it being dubbed as the “English Disease”. Today, it is very significant part of the game and is a monumental burden on the countries in which it is most rampant. Hooliganism can be defined as extreme fanaticism, where support for one’s team is taken to a much higher, as well as violent, level.
