Yup the raiders are always gonna b the raiders no matter what they do. Did u guys know that when the raiders left LA somebody put a curse on the team,and I think its working. All they do is false starts, they should change the name 2 the oakland falsestarters lol

I thought it was a group of businessmen in Latrobe that started Pro Football.

I've heard the sport of football was invented at West Point, yet not pro football. I believe pro football started there. Western PA and Eastern Oh was the heart of football in the early days of football. I know my high school's football program has been around longer than probably any pro football team.

Shevdog, I am not sure who invented it but I do know that the game that is played today is a lot different from the game when it started. If I remember correctly, instead of a team having 11 players on the field they had 25 I think and passing was illeagle. Something else of note, there are still high schools today that play 8 on 8 or 7 on 7. I know that there are school in the southeast and south. The most popular player i can think of that played that way is Drew Brees. He is from Texas. I love football history.

If someone would please contact the NFL office to find out, I'd appreciate it greatly!

Maybe the first NFL team but I have not seen any evidence that they were the first pro team. Nfl.com does not recognize them as that.
