National Football League; History
The National Football League is celebrating its 75th Anniversary this season, and unlike the alleged 125th Anniversary of Baseball, this anniversary has some basis in history. First named the American Football Association and founded in 1920 by sportswriter Joseph Carr, the league changed its name to the National Football League in 1922.
