    Totally forgot about Art Schlichter. That being said, according to Pro Football Reference, Schlichter played 13 games in the NFL. 3 TDs and 11 INTs. He was 0-6 as a starter. Craig Krenzel had a better NFL career and he only lasted one season.

    True. But who is more famous (or infamous)?

    The Landry/Staubach Cowboys teams were where I first cut my Cowboy-hating teeth.  When I was a lad, (young people, take a deep breath) we only got at best 4 NFL games a week, and with only the local sports news for clips, virtually zero national highlights (outside of Howard Cosell's MNF halftime show).  At that time CBS had the NFC rights and, living in Ohio far away from Minnesota, I was desperate for Viking games, clips, highlights, anything.  Instead CBS crammed the despicable Dallas Cowboys down our unwilling throats while NBC alternated the Bengals and Browns. Everyone I knew hated, hated, HATED, the Cowboys, but every week CBS (as my brother called them, the Cowboys Broadcasting System) continued to put them on. My Lord, I hated them. And CBS was so unabashed in their blatant favoritism.  Friggin' Phyllis George litterally cried on air after one glorious playoff flame out by those pompous jerkwads. "America's team"... the nerve!  My hate knew no bounds. When Skeletor... I mean Jerry Jones bought them, the hate just continued.  


    See now you're just making me nostalgic for 70's football.

    America hates the Dallas Cowboys.

    Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. For this guy, it depends on WHICH version of the Dallas Cowboys you are referring to. Tom Landry and Roger Staubach were my introduction into the great game. The Jerry Jones clown posse that came in after can go jump in a pool of rotten fish.

    The sig of @Jimmy! reminds me that the best name out there is Washington Federals.  It is appropriate for the capital, and sits beautifully alongside Nationals.

    What's more, the USFL Federals' logo is spectacular:




    A version of this, recoloured in maroon and burgundy, would be wonderful.

    This is the identity that the team should pay whatever to whomever to acquire.



    My fed skull is available, too. 😊

    Yeah, it's as classic font, not like something designed specifically for just one team.  I actually think there should be three teams wearing it...








    Didn't the Jets use it (or something really close to it) their first few years in the league?

     The majority of the public is more inclined to buy a team apparel item if it's Nike, UA, or Adidas.  They'll buy it, even at a higher cost, before Starter or Gildan or private label, because it's perceived to be more legitimate.  Which is exactly what this league needs:  legitimacy.  Failure to partner with a known brand is a failure.

    Says who? You?
