Rise of the National Football League
The national football league was founded in 1920 on August 20th. The current commissioner Roger Goodell, who was born in 1956, was by surprise selected the commissioner in 2001 after the then commissioner resigned.
It is currently made up of 32 teams from various regions in the US. During its initial days, it was composed of only eleven teams and by then the NFL was called American Professional Football Association until 1922 when the current name was founded. Just like any other emerging group, there was a management problem at the beginning and this made many teams to join and leave the league annually. However, this did not make the management lose hope. Dallas Texans in 1952 was the last team to turn back and most of its members formed another team, the Baltimore Colts.
There was a second chance. The reason why you should smile is that, today the national football league is one of the most stable associations in sports in the whole world. The member teams form what is described in America as major or professional sports leagues. The term was first used in 1921 referring to the most top level professional players. Apart from football, major sports leagues are also identified in hockey, golf, tennis and basketball.
For this reason, other major leagues are National Hockey League or NHL and National Basketball Association, famously known as the NBA, among others. The three leagues are considered the richest and professional clubs that goes for worldwide competitions and are therefore crowned the name cultural icons both in Canada and U.S because they enjoy a bigger place in what is called pop culture. The NFL is however ranked at the top of the three.
The league exists into two major conferences which are: The National Football Conference or NFC, and the other one called American Football Conference or AFC. Each of these conferences has sixteen teams grouped into fours. From research findings in the US, the NFL in relation to other domestic sports in the world is attended to by very many people. On average, the attendance per game was slightly above 67500 in 2009.
The NFL has attempted to partner with other organizations and currently it is in partnership with a number of media in the US including CBS, NBC, NFL network and ESPN. It has also risen to a level that it runs its own website, nfl.com.
In the year 2007 there was some scandal among some of the NFL players' actions away from the field and this saw the emergence of another NFL Personal Conduct Policy which was announced by Goodell. Earlier in 2006 following rumors alleging that the NFL would expand outside the United States, the commissioner, Goodell, replied about it being a reality by saying the possibility was there.
