TEAM HISTORY

Dallas Cowboys were originally going to be nicknamed the Steers. The team’s general manager, Texas E. Schramm, decided that having a castrated bovine as a mascot might subject the team to ridicule, so he decided to go with Rangers instead. But fearing that people would confuse the football team with the local minor league baseball team nicknamed the Rangers, Schramm finally changed the nickname to Cowboys shortly before the season began. Their stadium is the largest indoor stadium in the world, followed by the Millenium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales that is home to the BFL Welsh Dragons and Welsh Rugby Team.

Philadelphia Eagles were formed in 1933, when Bert Bell and Lud Wray purchased the bankrupt Frankford Yellowjackets. The new owners renamed the team the Eagles in honor of the symbol of the National Recovery Act, which was part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal. They were known as the Phil-Pitt "Steagles" playing in Philadelphia, PA in 1943 and share their stadium with Temple Owls college football team, and hosts the annual Army-Navy Game on alternative years.

Washington Redskins began life as the Boston Braves in 1932. One year later, team owner George Preston Marshall changed the team’s nickname from Braves to Redskins. According to most atlanticcoastounts, the nickname was meant to honor head coach and Native American William Henry “Lone Star” Dietz, though some question whether Dietz was a Native American. The Redskins kept their controversial nickname when they relocated to Washington, DC, in 1937 and there have been several mentions of changing the nickname but this has yet to be acknowledged.
