Organization
    (May 11, 1982-August 1, 1986)
    United States Football League
    Played for three seasons between March and June
    Founded by David Dixon
    Consisted of 12-18 teams
    Its teams included Michigan Panthers (1983 champions), Philadelphia (Baltimore) Stars (1984-85 champions), New Jersey Generals, Birmingham Stallions, Los Angeles Express, Oakland Invaders, and Tampa Bay Bandits
    Some of its franchises couldn't seem to stay put.
    Even though the Philadelphia Stars won the 1984 title, they moved to Baltimore, where they won the 1985 championship.
    The owners of the Arizona Wranglers and the Chicago Blitz traded teams, with their players actually switching teams as well.
    Donald Trump owned a team (the New Jersey Generals).
    It filed an anti-trust suit against the NFL.
    Even though it won the case, the jury awarded the USFL a whopping sum of $3.76!
    To this day, the check was never cashed.
    It lost an estimated $163 million throughout its brief history.
    After three seasons of playing in the spring, it wanted to play a season in the fall, which would mean it would compete directly with the NFL. The league folded before it got the chance.
    It used the two-point conversion and instant replay before the NFL did.
    Unlike some other start-up leagues, none of its teams ever folded during the middle of a season.
    Several of their players, such as Herschel Walker, Jim Kelly, Doug Flutie, and Reggie White, made it big in the NFL.
    Some of its old games are still shown on ESPN Classic.
