You all heard correctly with summer approaching for all Americans it’s easy to get caught up with the NBA playoffs which should feature the Milwaukee Bucks and or the beginning of the Major League Baseball season. But for the thousands upon thousands of NFL fans the 100thseason is just a hop skip and a jump away.
As the league has seen some of the most dramatic changes sense it debut season on August 20, 1920. These changes have strengthened some of the community not just in America but all around the world. Some of those changes include the equipment players wear, all blindside blocks have been abolished and carry 15-yard penalties, scoring plays and turnovers are now negated by penalties, and offensive and defensive pass interference is called no matter which one. Along with many more changes made throughout the years.
The league along with changing rules has carried a mark and symbol for fair and honest American sport. As we all know the New England Patriots won this year’s Super bowl against the Los Angeles Rams making them the most decorated team with six Super Bowl wins. They are now tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers with six wins a piece. However, the Green Bay Packers still have the most NFL championships with nine titles before the Super Bowl era and then four more wins on top of that coming from Super Bowls. The Packers are etched in American history as the best team in the league.
As each team gears up for what is sure to be one of the best NFL seasons in American history it is good to go back and acknowledge the greatness that is not only the National Football league but the players as well. And the Packers are not the only ones with something to fight for in this iconic stamp in history as the 100thseason kicks off on September 5th, 2019.
