    Glad to see all the positive reception for this video! We are VERY excited to do more videos like this! We did however make a small mistake. The Buccaneers owners name when they come up in 1976 - we said Hugh Culverson - and it’s Culverhouse. We are sorry about the error!

      Great video. Trivia tidbit: Cleveland Rams were the 1st team to put a graphic on their helmets.

      Another thing that made me mad is when they featured the Cardinals modern logo and not the classic logo.

      A more in depth history of each team would be an awesome 32 part series!

    The movie Leatherheads inspired me to check out the history of the NFL. The Green Bay Packers was interesting. What is a "packer"? Not an animal or machine. The Indian (meat) Packing Company. They were almost called the Green Bay Indians but the company changed to ACME Packing Co.

    I noticed how they stopped telling us how much it costs to purchase or enter a team.😏
    At first it was $100 ...then $500...then mumms the word on that! 😑😁

    Awesome. Except for 27:06 - "Jagwire"?! I'm sorry, but that constant mispronunciation irritates the crap out of me.

    Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans had to get permission from previous owners to use those names, I believe.

    Boston Braves changed their name to cash in on the greater notoriety of their baseball teams name. Giving the city Boston Redsox and Boston Redskins. George Preston Marshall was a genius.

    Future teams include the Montana Militia Men, The Kentucky Red Necks, the Arkansas InBreeders, and of course the San Antonio Fat Asses. Sadly however, ten years after their inception, the Fat Asses will move to Maine to be now known as the Bangor Socialists.

    The 1945-6 Rams were not the only pro football team to move immediately after winning a championship. In 1962 the AFL's Dallas Texans won the league championship and then in 1963 they moved to Kansas City where they were renamed the Chiefs.

    When a team moves from now on they should do it like the Browns/Ravens. So when the city regains a team (like the Browns) they keep their legacy. Sorry Raiders.
