NFL HISTORY/FACTS: 1941

Elmer Layden was named the first Commissioner of the NFL, March 1; Storck, the acting president, resigned, April 5. NFL headquarters were moved to Chicago.

Bell and Rooney traded the Eagles to Thompson for the Pirates, then re-named their new team the Steelers. Homer Marshman sold the Rams to Daniel F. Reeves and Fred Levy, Jr.

The league by-laws were revised to provide for playoffs in case there were ties in division races, and sudden-death overtimes in case a playoff game was tied after four quarters. An official NFL Record Manual was published for the first time.

Columbus again won the championship of the AFL, but the two-year-old league then folded.

The Bears and the Packers finished in a tie for the Western Division championship, setting up the first divisional playoff game in league history. The Bears won 33-14, then defeated the Giants 37-9 for the NFL championship, December 21.

 

1975: Johnny Miller, who had burst onto the golf stage by winning eight P.G.A. Tour events in 1974, continued his hot streak by capturing the Tucson (Ariz.) Open. He defeated John Mahaffey by nine strokes with a record 25-under-par 263. The week before he had won the Phoenix Open by shooting 24-under-par 260.

LITTLE KNOWN SPORTS FACT

1975: The former U.C.L.A. centers Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Bill Walton faced off for the first time as professionals. Abdul-Jabbar, playing in his fourth N.B.A. season for the Milwaukee Bucks, easily got the best of it, scoring 50 points with 15 rebounds and 11 assists. Walton, in his first pro season for the Portland Trail Blazers, was held to 7 points.

1982: Rollie Fingers of the Milwaukee Brewers became the first reliever in history to record 300 saves when he pitched the final two innings of a 3-2 victory over the Seattle Mariners at the Kingdome. The premier closer for the Oakland A’s team that won five division titles and three World Series, he retired in 1985 with 341 saves.

“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

Michael Jordan
