The Birth of the New NFL: How the 1966 NFL/AFL Merger Transformed Pro Football

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The year 1966 marked the birth of the National Football League as we know it, when owners in the NFL and the upstart American Football League agreed to an unprecedented merger, to take place at the start of the 1970 season. They also agreed to play, beginning at the end of the 66 season, a game between each leagues champion—a game that came to be called the Super Bowl.

 

The Birth of the New NFL tells the story of that historic season, leading to the game between the Green Bay Packers and the Kansas City Chiefs. It also tells the off-the-field story, the one between warring owners and cities—a story often more brutal than the one on the field. Larry Felser has interviewed the leading men of the day, from Al Davis and Jack Kemp to Wellington Mara, Art Modell, Lamar Hunt, Gene Upshaw, Dan Rooney, and many others. He presents the struggles of top teams for the chance to represent their respective leagues in the biggest game ever, and provides a gripping, behind-closed-doors account of the wheeling and dealing it took to reach the agreement.

Synopsis:

An insider's view of the drama, intrigue, and machinations that gave  birth to the modern-day NFL.
