Julie Staley is the President of the Staley Museum. She stops by to share the story of AE Staley, the founder of the eventual Chicago Bears franchise. Although he let the team go at the very early stages of the NFL, he still deserves credit for his role in building the foundation of one of the most storied franchises in the league.


The Football History Dude is a show dedicated to teaching NFL fans about the rich history of the game we all know and love. I’m your host, Arnie Chapman, and I’m just a regular dude that loves football and is a nerd when it comes to learning about history. I created this show to share the gridiron knowledge nuggets I gain from researching various topics about the history of the National Football League. Each episode I welcome you to climb aboard my DeLorean to travel back in time to explore the yesteryear of the gridiron, and yes, that’s a reference to the Back to the Future Movies.
