Pylons In The End Zone


Recommended Posts

1975 was the first year pylons were used by all teams in the NFL, but a few were using them in 1974.  I believe the only game they were used for in 1973 was the Super Bowl.  The first pylons were on a post and inserted in the ground, so that they did not fall over when run into.

I remember being a kid in the early 90s, and after high school football games, I used to would run and dive into the pylons just to see if they would ever fall over.... Nope. Never happened. Those suckers were screwed into the ground!

 

Good times!
