The NFL was founded in Canton, Ohio on August 20, 1920. To this day the Pro Football Hall Of Fame is one of the most visited attraction in Canton,Ohio. Canton home to The Pro Football Hall of Fame Game is an annual National Football League exhibition game that is held the weekend of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s induction ceremonies. The game is played at Fawcett Stadium, which is located next door to the Hall of Fame building in Canton, Ohio. It is traditionally the first game in the NFL’s preseason, marking the end of the NFL’s six-month off season.
The NFL as we know it today is comprised of 32 teams. The teams are broken down into two league or conferences. the American Football Conference (AFC) and National Football Conference (NFC). The conferences themselves are further broken down into Divisions. Each Conference has four divisions, East,North,South and West and each Division contains an equal amount of teams. At the present time there are four teams in each Division.
The National Football League (NFL) has a Commissioner, currently the leagues Commissioner is Roger Goodell who assumed the office of Commissioner from Paul Tagliabue September 1, 2006. Goodell has come under fire as of late from fans who think he is turning the league into touch football with the rule changes he and the NFL owners put in place before the 2011 season.
