NFL Research Paper


The NFL has been around for a long time since 1922 and is still going stonger than ever today. The NFL pretty much just started pretty basic with very few rules uniforms were nothing like they are today. For the first almost 20 years the NFL was just a white man sport only but that did start to change when some black people started playing football. Touchdowns used to be counted for four points and field goals were five points. They then changed the field goal points down to four points and then finally three and they then change touchdowns to the todays six points. And for the stadium part of it is funny because now todays stadiums are worth about 10 times more then did did back then and also can fit about double the people they used to. So the NFL did go a long ways and still continuing to improve the day everyday.
