World Football Leauge

Since the 1970 merger of the AFL and NFL, there have been two attempts to form another league .  Each lasted little more than a year.  The first was the World Football League in 1974.

These were the teams:

Chicago Fire

Detroit Wheel

Houston Texans…later the Shreveport Steamer

Jacksonville Sharks

Memphis Southmen.  Larry Csonka, Paul Warfield, and Jim Kick went to this team.  All three were from the Miami Dolphins and they really made money from  this short lived league.

New York Stars…later the Charlotte Hornets

Philadelphia Bell

Portland Storm

Southern California Sun

The league rules had one good setup.  Twenty games with no exhibitions.
