This is a very special episode of The Football History Dude podcast, because we brought together 8 industry experts to share stories about the original teams of the NFL. The reason? Well, that's simple. Tomorrow (date of release) is the NFL's 100th Birthday, celebrating 100 years after the famous meeting at Ralph Hay's Hupmobile auto showroom in Canton, OH.

Without this meeting, the timeline of the NFL and possibly even the league itself, would not be the same. Below are the various guest experts on the show and the teams they helped me with, but I highly recommend you head to the special post on the website to learn even more about each team and expert.
