Hope Y'all Enjoy....

Many of the American Football League principals had thoughts that are still shared by AFL fans and former players today, as we celebrate what would have been the AFL's 50th season.
Jerry Mays said "Nobody hated the NFL like I did. I live in Dallas now and I still can't root for the Cowboys. I can root for the Oakland Raiders, believe it or not, but I can't root for the Cowboys."
Sid Gillman was asked if his '63 Chargers could have beaten the Chicago Bears if a Super Bowl had been played that year. "Absolutely," said Sid.
"And the AFL would have won the next year, too" said Al Davis, "because Buffalo had a helluva club with Tom Sestak, Ron Mcdole, George Saimes, Kemp, Billy Shaw, Stew Barber, Cookie (Gilchrist) and those guys. They would have beaten Cleveland in '64."
