The USFL History: Video: ABC Sports: USFL 1985-USFL Championship-Oakland Invaders vs. Baltimore Stars: Full Game


This post was originally posted at The New Democrat on Blogger

Baltimore the only city to win the Super Bowl, 1970, 2000 and 2012, the USFL Championship in 1985 and the CFL Grey Cup in 1995. And the Baltimore Colts won the NFL Championship in 1958 and 59 before that game was called the Super Bowl. So this is a big city with a great American pro football history. With a bunch of championships as well as playing in a lot of championship games. And some of the best American pro football fans in the world. The USFL didn’t fold because of lack of support, or lack of good players, or lack of coaching, or lack of quality play. They folded because of lack of management in the league administration and how their clubs were run. Had they stayed in the spring and summer and stayed out of NFL markets, they could very well still be in business today.
