Intense Football League (937 words)
Above is the 2007 alignment for the Intense Football League.
After a rather unsuccessful 2005 campaign the team left to rejoin the revived IFL, were sold and then changed their name to the Stampede Express prior to the start of the 2006 season.
Following the 2005 season, the NIFL under went yet another upheaval and the former Intense League teams chose to leave and re-form the IFL, along with NIFL defector the Southwest Louisiana Swashbucklers.
National Football League - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography (5724 words)
Unlike other leagues, like the NBA (which has certain exemptions) or Major League Baseball (which has a "soft cap" enforced by "luxury taxes"), the NFL has a "hard cap", that is no team, for any reason, may go over the cap.
Like the American college football game from which it sprung, NFL football is a descendant of rugby football, which was imported to the United States from Canada in 1874, and then transformed into American college football after McGill University in Montreal invited Harvard University to Quebec to play a new Canadian version of "rugby football".
The founding of the United States Football League in the early 1980s was the biggest challenge to the NFL in the post-merger era.
