    I didn't know about the defunct Mpls NFL team names:

    Minneapolis–Marines (1922-24) and Red Jackets (1929-30)

    Don't forget about the Duluth Kelleys (1923-1925) and the Eskimos (1926-1927).

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    Re: History of NFL team nicknames

    In 1919, Earl "Curly" Lambeau and George Calhoun pieced together a group in the Green Bay Press-Gazette editorial room with the notion of starting a football team. Lambeau’s employer at the Indian Packing Company - Frank Peck - provided jerseys, equipment and use of its athletic field for practice. Early on, the club was identified as a project of the company, hence Packers became a natural fit.
    Hmmmm I thought that they got their name from a candy company known for its fudge. :wink:
